What if ...
A risk is only a risk if you are not prepared and know how to manage it!
With every opportunity there is a risk (or many). This is just how it goes.
At the same time, there are also a ton of rewards when taking certain opportunities.
It is up to you how to view them and them how you manage them.
You can make a mistake once.
The second time it's a choice.
As with everything in life, there are risks. These risks are universal and the chances that you are the first one to face them is quite small (aka not existing).
It is a matter of realising them, understanding the type of it, knowing how to manage them and then follow through with a plan.
In fact, there are only 4 risks you really need to be aware of - in any given situation and for any given decision you need to make.
RISK 1: EDUCATION
You can't make the right decision with the education.
However, information as such is not the Power.
Choosing to use and act on it is.
How many of us know that daily exercise, balanced diet, enough sleep is good for us?
But still - 63.4% of Australians are overweight and 28.3% obese.
Is it the lack of information responsible for it?
Is it the lack of accountability to follow it through the principles, especially when things are hard?
RISK 2: PERCEPTION
You can't make the right decision without seeing different perspectives as it can change from 'lots of work' to 'lots of opportunities'
The longer you are in your Career and/or your Business, the more you need to investigate and invest in getting another perspective.
The opening up of blindspots is the opening of opportunities.
RISK 3: TACTICS
You can't make the right decision without investing in the right tools and resources.
Simply investing in shiny objects and solutions without the knowledge and perceptions for improving your situation can send you broke and stuck where you are now.
If you want to get onto into a more senior role or change into a new industry, investing in an expensive course or degree without knowing for sure that this profession will be in line with your strengths, values and your ideal lifestyle, is a waste of time and money.
Tactics follow a strategy and a strategy is based on knowledge, experience and perspectives.
Invest in Nr 1 + Nr 2 and reduce the risk for Nr 3.
If you consider between investing time or money >
You can always make back money.
You can't make back time.
If you are in full control over Nr 1 and Nr 2,
you know what to do and will always make not just an income but also an impact without having to rely on external factors -
your employer, the economy, the next shiny object provider.
