What is the riskiest thing you do? The answer to that depends on your perspective, your propensity for thrill seeking and how bored you are with your life. If you are talking about physical risk then cliff diving is one of the most dangerous sports a human can undertake, quickly followed by sky-diving, skiing potentially fatal slopes, or rock climbing without a rope, all high-risk activity.
If you are talking about financial risk then the top would be speculative investing like bit coin or oil wells, followed by recommendations of start-up investing by friends with no due diligence and high stakes gambling. If you are talking about emotional risk then cheating on your loved one ranks right up there with emotional abuse in terms of ensuring an epic fail in your relationship. There are other forms of emotional risk like being fearful, close minded and judgmental, and living in the status quo.
Risk takers are often seen as thrill seekers or irresponsible.Yet most business people, especially entrepreneurs, are risk takers, too. If not for them, we wouldn’t have boutiques, microbreweries, smartphones and more! There are healthy risks and unhealthy risks, so it’s about identifying how comfortable you are with risks — in every area of your life.
So, is risk-seeking behavior genetic or a matter of choice? How can we use these answers to make better decisions and lead happier lives? This week we answer those questions.
