Tactics in Life: Challenge Yourself – Stretch and Take Risks

February 15, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is yet another way of saying, and also another reminder, that you should get out of your comfort zone and seize the day.

If you want to go places, achieve your goals, get closure to long-standing issues and frustrations, and generally just make things happen in your life, then you need to challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone and do things you haven’t done before. It’s in stretching yourself and taking calculated risks that you learn more and move forward in getting what you want in life.

So put yourself out there in the game of love. It’s the only way she will know you exist and are interested in her. You find out early that you’re in the Friend Zone – or you become more than just friends. Either way it puts an end to your friendship, possibly making it worse off, but also possibly making it even better than just that. For all you know, she has just been waiting impatiently for you to make your move. But if that isn’t the case then at least you immediately know and can write her off sooner rather than later and not waste any more time.

Grab that promotion and take on more responsibilities. Sometimes it’s the only way to be in a position to make things happen for the better.

If you are qualified, then serve the public. It will involve diving into a pit of vipers, which is one metaphorical way of describing everything that is concerning government, but if we don’t have good people running the country then it will be all the more to our ruin. Take a chance and make a stand in the public arena despite the inconvenience and discomfort being in the public spotlight entails.

Yes, all of this is obviously so much easier said than done. But if you never at least try then absolutely nothing will happen at all. Sometimes you’ll never really know until you make the attempt. Yes, you can fail, and the consequences of failure can be that bad. But you can also succeed – and victory in achieving your goals will be just as sweet.

Challenge yourself to do more than what you think you can do and take well thought-out risks in executing your plans; be more than who the world thinks you can be – be more than who you think you can be.

Fight your fears; go ahead and dream big – and make it happen.

Take charge of your life.

Go out there and pleasantly surprise yourself, for when you think that you can do no more and go no further, you just might.

Take that chance.
