The Fear of Risk Taking | EP 36

Listen to this episode of #SwitchOnWithAdaora, Tolu, and I discuss The Fear of Risk-Taking. Life in itself is a risk because we can not control all the variables. We talk about the fear of actualization which is fueled by the fear of taking risks. Nothing good comes in comfort, so diving in (taking a leap of faith) is the way to go, after all, nobody really knows what they are doing even the top billionaires we are all just showing up fully every day.

Show Note:

  • [1:17] Dictionary definition of Risk is essentially exposure to something dangerous.

  • [7:23] The reason why we think that something isn't going our way is because of the mental picture of what we think the outcome should be, sometimes it is going the right way not necessary as you expected.

  • [8:38] Tolu shares his personal experience of a risk he took: leaving his toxic job.

  • [10:17] Adaora shares her personal experience of a risk she took: moving back to Nigeria.

  • [14:39] Live in spite of the fear or the risk. Wake up every day and decide to live because everything is risky.

  • [16: 31] If you have a positive mindset towards what it is you're trying to accomplish you're going to be proved right and if you have a negative mindset towards what you are doing you are going to be proved right too.

  • [17:12] Take the risk! You will never know until you live forward and dive in.
