Many people talk about the importance of taking chances. They say things such as “no risk, no reward” or “you must take chances in order to grow” etc.
The thing to realize is it’s not the risk that is so scary, it’s putting yourself in a position of vulnerability.
Being vulnerable means exposing your weaknesses. It means occasionally having your weaknesses exploited. It means possibly even failing.
When one realizes everyone has weaknesses, everyone is exposed at various times, everyone occasionally fails then all of a sudden, being vulnerable yourself isn’t so scary.
Being willing to be vulnerable will only make you stronger in the long term. Short term though, it is scary.
Take the chance, be vulnerable and grow
Have a great day!
