Taking risks is a great way to grow, says Women’sCoaching CEO Jo Miller. Consider these three things taking risks can do for you.
1. Boost your tolerance. Any risk you take will prepare you for the next one as you develop skills to deal with adversity and discover your own inner strength.
2. Improve your outlook. Being comfortable with risks can help you weigh it more accurately, setting yourself up for success by being realistic about what might go wrong.
3. Increase your leadership potential. By showing others you aren’t afraid to achieve great things, you may find people give you more ambitious projects and put you on a path for success.
