Don't Try to Go For Broke Without Reading This First

Go for broke or go home. Well, sometimes you have

got to be tough. Taking a risk is one of the

hardest things to do in this world, yet one that

is so rewarding when you are finally able to reap

its benefits. Some people have the guts, some

don't. That's the way the world goes. But as far

as I know, being a risk-taker is a trait that one

could be extremely proud of. If you have the guts,

well thank the Gods for it because people seldom

go for broke.

One thing to remember when taking risks is the

effect that it could bring to people who are

involved. It is an amazing feeling when you throw

caution to the wind but always take note of the

people around you. Sure, you want to be extremely

successful, but do you want to be called selfish

just to get what you want? If your answer is yes,

then think again. Another thing to take note of is

how far are you willing to go to become

successful? If you decide to go for broke, you

have to consider plenty of things before you

attain your goal.

However, reaching your goals is a really brave

act. As Helen Keller once said, "Security is

mostly a superstition. Life is either a daring

adventure or nothing." As cliché as it may sound,

this passage is simply referring to living life to

the fullest. Try every dare; live every dream.

Love the person your heart desires, because life

is too short to have regrets. Go for it, because

you never know what will happen next.

Take a Big Step: Go for broke

Life is a big game of truth or dare. You either

take the dare or you will forever wonder what

could have happened if you did. It could also be a

game of spin the bottle, when the bottle points to

your direction, would you be willing to face it

head-on or decide to end the game and just run

away? Life is a game; it's either you gamble or

you chicken out. David Lloyd George once said:

"Don't be afraid to take a big step. You can't

cross a chasm in two small jumps." You can't

expect everything to be fed to you through a

silver spoon. It's either you take the big leap or

you don't. Which one do you think will give you

ultimate success? Don't get me wrong; deciding to

go for broke is definitely not an easy task. It

requires skill, determination, perseverance and

hard work to acquire such. But how will you know

if you just sit around waiting for luck to happen?

Life is a battlefield, and you are the soldier.

"Twenty years from now you will be more

disappointed by the things you didn't do than by

the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail

away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds

in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." These

words came straight from Mark Twain. Would you

rather live a life wondering what could have

happened if you went to that interview? Would you

rather sulk in a corner thinking about your boss'

reaction about that suggestion that was in your

mind but never got to say out loud? Well if you

ask me, I would definitely tell you to go for

broke. It might not be easy but hey, think about

the rewards. You might even get promoted if you

decide to just wing it.

Surround yourself with positive people. That is

definitely a big step when you decide to just go

for it. Surrounding yourself with people and

letting them encourage you is a big step to being

successful. And once you decide to go for broke,

the domino effect rubs on other people, too. You

become a magnet of positive energy surrounding

your friends and inspiring them to go for their

goals. Now, who wouldn't love a person with so

much ambition and drive?

Go for broke, I say to you.

As Jim McMahon once said, "Yes, risk-taking is

inherently failure-prone. Otherwise, it would be

called 'sure-thing-taking.'" Do not be afraid to

fail. Failure is inevitable. You can't be

successful in a day or two. Luck is a thing that

is forever stuck in our minds. Change your mindset

and focus on your goals. Do what you love.

Otherwise, you'd just be another person wondering

what could have been. Every risk is worth taking,

so I suggest you go for broke.
