Taking Risks for Success

By Randy Gage in Success, Prosperity.

In the last two posts we looked at hope versus delusion, and I said that if you really believe in your idea, you should take a shot.  Too many people are risk-adverse, and operate their lives in fear-based modes.  I talked about this in depth on podcast #140 Secret of the Super Achievers. Worth a listen if you haven’t already.   Here’s the basis of the hypothesis.

Elon Musk made a fortune as a co-founder of PayPal.  He had nothing to prove and lots to lose.  Yet he rolled the dice and risked everything to launch Tesla, The Boring Company and Space X.

Oprah had the most popular TV show since the earth’s crust cooled.  Yet she walked away from it, and took a massive risk to launch her own television network.

Elon, Oprah and other high achievers like Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, and George Lucas are willing to take risks in scenarios that “normal” people simply are not willing to. If you want to become the highest possible version of yourself. You’re going to have to take some risks.

If you truly understood your godlike nature, you would never play small again.

    There is this guy in Poland: Mariusz Pudzianowski. He won multiple strongman contests worldwide and made his fortune this way. He is now retired from lifting weights, but check this out, instead of settling down he became a MMA fighter! Just out of ambition, as he already has all the money he needs. A cage match is several times more dangerous than a “farmer’s walk” and this guy, now a millionaire, walks in and risks his health with younger opponents. He had to adjust his body a lot, lose weight, learn the moves etc His spirit is that of an (over)achiever.
