High Risk Behavior Is A Necessity

High Risk Behavior Equals High Returns

His Death Was Caused By High Risk Behavior

high risk behaviorWhich of the above statements or headlines can you believe? Or rather, which one do you choose to believe? I have to admit (in the face of overwhelming evidence), that certain forms of high risk behavior are likely to be detrimental to your longevity and health. Driving carelessly at excessive speeds, practicing unprotected sex with complete strangers, engaging in the use of hard drugs, or strolling casually about in dark alleys at 3 am in some neighborhoods are all high risk behaviors that I wouldn’t recommend unless you want to test out your life insurance policy sooner rather than later. All that said, I am still of the mind that high risk behavior pays, and pays well.

 

Why Success Demands High Risk Behavior?

First, we have to define high risk behavior.

What makes up high risk behavior?

In essence, it is nothing more than the practice of doing something that most people would find themselves riskuncomfortable doing. Truth be told, it can even be brought a little closer to home than that. High risk behavior is engaging in an activity that we would not normally do, or one that we would be uncomfortable in doing.

Ah, there it is again, that old comfort thing. But here is my point.

If you aren’t successful, and I mean rip roaring, eye popping, jaw dropping successful, then you are going to have to do things that you have never done before.

Doing what you have always done will get you to where you are, just the very same as me. However, if we want to change the results that we are getting, we are going to have to change what we are doing. And that brings us back to high risk behavior. Applied in the right situations, high risk behavior can be exactly the catalyst that sparks the breakthrough that you are looking for. Some examples might include quitting your job, starting a new business or entering into a partnership, finding a brand new client. All of these high risk behaviors have a common theme – growth potential.  Without them, explosive growth isn’t possible. But they are risky. At least in the minds of most people. You just have to not be one of the ‘most people’.

Robert Kyosaki loves to point out that most people don’t want to own stocks and bonds, real estate or income funds because they assume them to be risky. He goes on to say that most people don’t like to own a business because they see it as too risky. He then points out, as I am doing, that doing nothing out of the ordinary and by staying away from ‘high risk behavior’ is the riskiest thing that you can do. It is virtually guaranteeing that you cannot ever be successful.

So take a look at what you are doing and where you want to go.

If you keep doing what you are doing, where will you be in five years? Ten years? Twenty years? Maybe it’s time for some high risk behavior.
