Worth the Risk - Quote Lettered by Shrimp Salad Circus

Worth the Risk Quote to Share!

Have you ever taken a risk that really paid off? It doesn’t have to be a life-altering payoff, either. If it gave you the warm fuzzies for a few minutes, maybe that’s worth it!

Whether it’s something as simple as picking up a new hobby or booking a trip you’ve been dying to take or as big as starting a new business, we grow from the risks we take.

Share this with a friend — or yourself! — on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest to give them the last little kick they need to get moving!

My Personal “Risk”

One of my big “risks” was trying to get a job in digital media when we moved to DC. I’ve been blogging for years, and I had picked up a lot of socia and digital media skills along the way. I’ve learned a lot from panicked midnights spent trying to Google myself out of a crisis (Can anybody relate?!).

But since my bachelor’s and master’s degrees were unrelated and I had been working in fundraising and event planning for a nonprofit, I almost didn’t even put myself out there. But the risk paid off and I’m in a great job in digital media now!

What about you?

What big (or little!) scary risk have you taken that you’re still glad you did? Tell me in the comments!


  1. It’s the same topic , but I was quite surprised to see the opinions I didn’t think of. My blog also has articles on these topics, so I look forward to your visit. safetoto

  2. I love this… my blog is a true example as I thought about doing it forever and then just decided to jump in feet first!

  3. What a great reminder to go for it! Quite a few things have been on my mind for a while now; I just need to take the plunge. But doing is so much scarier than thinking!

  4. LOVE this! I took a risk on a boy at a very crazy time in my life when all signs pointed toward avoiding the boy species at all costs for a while. Turns out, it paid off handsomely. xoxo
