Yes – we are discussing it. The “R” word. The word people are too frightened to utter because of the responsibility and care that goes into it. A person’s stomach may flutter at the thought of them, but it’s a necessary part of growth and next-level thinking. Yep, we are talking about risks!
A financial expert, Suze Orman, took such risks – some for the better, others not so well. As a waitress at 30, many of her esteemed customers pooled together $50,000 to help her get her own restaurant afloat. However, she placed it all in the hands of a shoddy investor who lost it all in bad investments. So, she went to work as a stock broker, which led her into the financial field. Trying to get a good standing to her name with her clients, she started her own financial company and wrote a book, both great successes in her new career. Now, she is a widespread example of what taking risks can do. Her wise advice is encouraging to anyone facing financial threat. She made it clear, “my job is to be the financial truth crusader. It’s time to get honest. Hope for the best. But plan for the worst.”
Her story is a prime example of how risks can affect you for better or worse. Her unsuccessful risk brought her around to another successful one. Just because bad breaks happen to you for taking risks doesn’t mean good ones won’t come from the lessons you learned. “Risk” is not always a bad word – it can catapult you into the right direction if you pay attention. Therefore, you always win!
