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. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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
