Gambling on a Calculated Risk
Roll the dice…and trust that the odds will be in your favor and if they aren’t “May the odds be ever in your favor” (sorry I couldn’t help myself), you have to be willing to do what it takes to turn the tables.
Sometimes you just have to go for it. The one thing all entrepreneurs have in common…they took a risk. If they hadn’t, they wouldn’t be where they are.
Most successful business owners are able to just pull the trigger and fix the issues that arise efficiently and effectively as they go. They don’t stand their planning and coming up with endless possible outcomes, while someone else sails by.
Thinking on the fly, and risking everything is sometimes a necessity in the world of entrepreneurship. This piece of it usually comes naturally for men (there are just too many jokes to insert here, I couldn’t pick one) but women tend to be planners. We want to make sure its perfect so we don’t give anyone a reason to think we are incompetent. No worries, we can rock both schools of thought and look good while we do it. Every good gambler and entrepreneur, takes calculated risks…they don’t jump in blindly, they study the competition; know their weaknesses and what they need to do pull ahead. That is when we pounce, and leave the others dazed and confused.
Find your own balance of taking a risk but knowing the consequences. This will put you one step ahead of the competition and let you stand out among the entrepreneurs of our time. You will be bounding ahead…fixing issues and leaping even further ahead to make up time. The others will be left in your dust still planning their game 🙂
There comes a time when you need to just go for it, stack the deck ladies!
