R is for Risk
Throughout life I have been a risk-taker. I don’t mean death defying adventurous escapades (I am a big scaredy-cat when my feet don’t touch the ground) but risks that enable me to fulfil my dreams.
In order to make progress and continue the learning process, I believe an element of risk is necessary. Naturally, there are consequences to consider so it is wise to weigh up the pros and cons before jumping into the fire without water. It is also important to take into account how the consequences affect the people around you.
I firmly believe that with commitment towards a goal, a lot of hard work and a bit of bullheadedness, a risk will pay-off. Obstacles will need to be overcome and there will be times of struggle (it is never plain-sailing) but keeping focus and believing in oneself does reap reward.
