Lately I’ve been monitoring my risk aversion. I want a life that is achievable only by taking a large number of major risks, yet I have a risk averse disposition.
I uncovered today what I think is another one of the many differences between my current state of being – a wanna-be entrepreneur and my desired state of being – an entrepreneur.
Wanna-be entrepreneurs see opportunities, then risks, and decide the risks outweigh the opportunities. Entrepreneurs see opportunities, then risks, but are confident they can beat the risks.
So that is the key to overcoming my risk aversion. The question now is how to gain the confidence that I can beat the risks I see.
Perhaps one solution, and one I never condone or rebuke, is reckless disregard…
Reckless disregard is a powerful mindset when harnessed.
