I’m learning about prosocial and positive risk. Consider the risk it requires to start a conversation with a potential new friend, to join a new club, to step into a new church? You might feel awkward or rejected, so the risk is real. That’s what makes these behaviors a risk. But it’s positive risk—risk with the potential for great reward.
Without risk taking, nothing changes. We don’t form new friendships. We don’t experience new things. We don’t ever turn the kaleidoscope of our lives. Take a positive risk. Risk every day.
