Why Playing Small Is the Riskiest Choice Of All

Starting a business is often said to be the biggest risk a person can take.

We fear this failure more because we have to fight so hard to start. We have to convince our family, our friends, but most importantly, ourselves that we can be successful.

And once we start, there are new risks at every corner.

But there’s something that I have realised in my twelve years of running several businesses - we have long misunderstood what true risk is.

Truth is - NOT starting my business at 23 would have been the greatest risk for me.

Turning away from a path that has led me to where I am now and never having given this version of me a shot, would have been the riskiest choice of all.

In this episode of The Wellness Entrepreneur Podcast, I want to talk about taking risks and how to overcome what is stopping you.

We start by identifying what is a real risk to you, and which choices you can happily leave behind.

Jump inside and I will guide you through your personal risk-assessment:

- realising where you’re letting society curb your actions

- identifying if your choices are aligning with your values and priorities

- the need to communicate to others what you are no longer willing to risk

- recognising that an unfamiliar path is often uncomfortable but rarely something we regret 

- surrounding yourself with support and people whose risks align with yours

A great gift when making choices that steer our lives in the right direction is to have people around us who understand that we must honour every part of ourselves. After all, isn’t the greatest risk of all - to stop yourself from finding out what you’re truly capable of.

And while you’re working on understanding what choices really matter to you, I have one final suggestion - celebrate every small win, because they were all the result of risks you took (sometimes without even realising it).

Listen to the full episode, and remember to come into my Insta DMs and tell me if you see a choice before you that feels like a real risk.
