8 Reasons Risk Takers Are More Likely To Be Successful

8 Reasons Risk Takers Are More Likely To Be Successful

Many are turned off by risks. It is actually easier and more comfortable to sit down in the safe spot and wait. But this is what distinguishes the doers from the dreamers. While the dreamers is still sleeping and waiting for the best moment to take action, the taker has caught the rewards. Risk takers are more likely to be successful because they do not limit themselves and are willing to put in their energy when every other person is hesitant.

Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes the furthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.” – Dale Carnegie

They experience a passion in every risk they take

With risk comes a fire, a burning push to keep you going and reach the finish line. Most times people who are adventurous are the ones who take risk. They are ignited with a zeal to reach new heights and such zeal empowers them to be more creative and prepared to win.

They stand out

People who take risk are bold. Somehow this courage is shown and endearing. With courage also comes confidence and alertness. When every other person withdraws they are willing to stay in. This makes risk takers leaders as they are anointed to be by their own self.

They gain knowledge

The pain that you know doesn’t hurt. It is actually what you don’t know that hurts you. Knowledge is vital to success. Risk takers are able to identify such knowledge because they are willing to undergo a process that will provide such knowledge. Through such knowledge they can navigate future steps and sail through difficult waters.

They pursue success

Risk takers know that success won’t fall in your lap. You have to chase and hunt for it. That is what they do when they take risks. They are shooting for the sky amidst the storm. Through that chase they find seemingly rare opportunities that may never have been found if they had waited. Risk takers are active and ready for the pursuit of success.

They are not afraid of failure

The more risk you take the less you see anything that can stop you. You are practically unstoppable because risk taking has strengthened your will to keep on going no matter what. Fear is a mental block that hinders many from achieving their dreams and becoming successful. But risk takers do not feel that fear. They are unstoppable.

They set a higher standard

Risk takers are prided with dreaming big. It all starts from a particular reward attained from a particular venture. Risk takers want to get more after attaining something worthwhile from previous actions they took. With every risk comes the will to be above average and trudge into newer and undefined territories.

They learn all the way through

It is not simply about knowledge. They discover themselves and harness their own inner strength. The truth is that against certain opinions it will be important to know that risk takers are not stupid. They are smart. Because of the learning and knowledge they garner through many processes they are able to understand what they can take and what they cannot take. They don’t just dip themselves into every risk, rather they dip themselves after perusing the areas and dimensions of what they are about to pursue. Then they go for it.

They change

There is nothing static with risk takers. They attain more freedom and flexibility. They are not found wanting as risk helps them to either define a change or adapt to a change. Risk takers can never be stuck with the tide. Rather they move with it and set the tone for even bigger changes. Granted, doing something different could mean discomfort and redirection, yet getting out of that comfort zone is that which will bear a mark and bring to you the life you want. This is why risk takers will always rule!

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
