My friends and I tend to be big dreamers. We fail a lot! That sounds terrible, but in reality it is good because we dream big and try new things all the time. This quote stood out to me because I feel like those that take the biggest risks in life are always the ones that go the farthest. Of course, taking big risks doesn’t mean that you will always be successful, but the bigger risks you take – the further you can go. By pushing past the boundaries of what has been done before or where your imagination can take you, you can take huge leaps in your life.
Maybe you can be successful playing it safe, and maybe you can get wealthy by making safe investments. But you will never be truly innovative or be wildly successful without taking risks and making mistakes. Those who revolutionize entire industries – Steve Jobs, Richard Branson etc. took an amazing amount of risks and had a very up and down journey on their paths to super success. How can you know what is in store for you if you venture out towards the unknown.
So when you have an idea or a dream, even if the future is uncertain (which it most likely always is no matter what you choose), you shouldn’t discount it just because you can’t see how it will end. The best and most worthwhile journeys in life are the ones where we don’t know where we will end up.
So what do you think? Have you ever ventured far from the shore? If you could do anything without worrying how it will turn out what would it be?
