Striking the Balance Between Taking Risks and Being Realistic #bloganuary

Being brave isn’t about taking risks for the sake of it. It’s not always about making bold choices and venturing into uncharted territory. To me, being brave means finding a balance between embracing new opportunities and staying realistic about what can be achieved within the parameters of time, money, and resources you have available to you. That way, you take whatever steps forward that are accessible to you while resisting the pursuit of an unrealistic vision just for its own sake – instead working your hardest on what’s a great day to blog, and the Bloganuary prompt is: How are you brave?

In your life, you have to take risks.

I once saw Gary Vaynerchuk on YouTube giving advice to a young actor who was a waiter living in LA. He said to the actor that the young man needed an agent. In spite of all the auditions he could give, he expected to emerge as the next big thing without an agent?

Despite being an optimist, Vaynerchuk advises people not to take too many risks. I feel that I am brave in that the substantial risks I do take, I am willing to make efforts to be free. I said this because a measure of importance to me was to have my own time in life.

I said this to my French teacher in high school, Monsieur Lalonde, in front of the class. Monsieur Lalonde responded by stating that he was disappointed.

He said that being active throughout life was much better. By the way, he was the ice hockey coach in the school.

I didn’t find Monsieur Lalonde realistic. I don’t think an answer to wanting to be brave is to start out doing what you love and worry about money later.

Living a life without trying to be nine to five might be sad in the opinion of someone like Monsieur Lalonde. I’ve quit several jobs. In 2001, when the time when was of the essence, that springtime I quit a job that I needed.

In retrospect, quitting that job was a big mistake and I regret it. Live and learn. However, I still believe that I only did what I thought I had to do in 2001.

Luckily, these days, while not the right fit, I am content working for a business I operate with my dad. This is to help maintain the quaint cemetery we care for. That is the measure of credibility I have.
