Perhaps you’re thinking of betting on the “big game,” going to the races, online gaming sites like foxybingo.com, or the ultimate, VEGAS BABY!
But that’s not what I’m referring to. I’m talking about taking a gamble with your life. Not in a dangerous way of course (but if you are I highly recommend skydiving), but in putting yourself out there in ways that might make you feel uncomfortable, but could have big payouts if you just take that chance.
So what are some of the ways you can take a gamble in life?
Freelancing. Well that’s a biggie. I know not just everyone can take that leap. If you do, I always recommend that you are prepared at least a year in advance financially. Practice living on half your income…you’re going to need that skill!
Dating. Oh yes I’m still in the dating pool, and I live in LA so it’s a giant pool! Sometimes it’s hard to “put yourself out there,” and it can be difficult to approach someone you might be interested in. But think of the possible payoff! Getting to spend time with someone you like, and possibly having it turn into something long term!
Classes. How long has it been since you’ve tried something new, like dance, music, or singing? Or even a new fitness class or sports league? Everyone starts off a newbie. I did when I started taking beach volleyball classes, and it turned into one of the greatest passions of my life.
Traveling. If I had waited to travel overseas until the perfect guy came along, or when one of my friends had availability, I would have waited FORVER! I hate to break it to ya but we ain’t got forever! Traveling by yourself is not as scary as it seems, and it’s a great way to break out of your shell and meet and talk to new people. The world is your oyster!
So, what are you waiting for! Take a gamble on yourself!
