If you are going to be a successful entrepreneur, you have to take chances. Period. End of discussion. The word “risk” is something that will not only enter your vocabulary, but it will be something that you live by.
Now, when most people read what I just wrote, they will think I’m an idiot. I’m not. Or, at least I don’t think I’m an idiot for saying the above words. The definition of being an entrepreneur means that you are a risk taker.
Yes, you have to take chances!
But taking chances doesn’t have to be stupid. There can be calculated risk, to help you minimize the downside of a potential “risky” move, and that is the type of risk that I’m talking about here.
Calculated risk is what you want. Non-calculated risk is not what you want. (yeah, I just used a double negative).
That is called gambling, and if you want to lose anything and everything in those moves, then be my guest.
However, I like to think that I try to help out those that are trying to make it in this business, in this industry. I care too much about it.
Yes, you have to take chances…
But take the RIGHT kind of chances. For instance, I just decided to partake in an absolutely amazing opportunity. This opportunity is going to expand into something so massive that every American will be using this service or seeing this service everywhere they shop in the next 2-4 years.
Could it flop? Could I lose my money?
There are no guarantees!
But from all my research and all my conversations, I don’t think it will. Therefore, I put my money where my mouth is.
I take calculated risks.
Learn to do the same. Learn to be great. Follow what others do. As I’ve said in the past…. if you do these things, you will be unstoppable.
Until next time….
P.S. If “you have to take chances” (which you do with entrepreneurship), then do so in smart way with this system!
