    What's the last great risk you took in your life?

    So what's the last great risk you took in your life that if you failed it would have hurt you terribly and would be a huge blow to your self-worth and self-esteem?

    I think taking those risks are what changes your life and makes you a better person. I use to take risks all the time. I've moved out at 19 because I couldn't stand living with my parents anymore. I had enough money for deposit and 1 month's rent but I didn't have a job. If I didn't find one quickly, I would have just been so screwed.

    Taking risks was always fun and exciting. Now as I'm getting older, I take less risks which is just sad and pathetic way for me to live.

    The last great risk I took started on April 1st this year. I revamped my Giving Ground blog (www.givingground.net). It's a daily record of how I'm getting to where I want to be. For example, one of my goals is I want to ride a 3 day 180 mile bike ride next year. I have no frickin' clue how I'm going to be doing that being 20lbs overweight.

    If I fail, it's going be very public and very embarrassing. Also, my entire INFP Blog is based on telling INFPs that all the crappy things INFPs currently do can be mitigated in order to achieve our dreams. Giving Ground is where I prove that I'm not just talking out my ass. So if I don't complete my goals, it's going to be a huge blow to the validity of the stuff I'm spouting on my INFP Blog.

    So what's the last big risk you took that could possibly crush you if you failed?

    I'm risking all the time... at the moment, I'm risking with high-school and my future.

    None.I've never really taken any risks,it's kind of a problem
    I don't even know how to ride a bike because when I was younger I was scared
    of getting hurt too badly,so I just forgot about learning.

    But I am learning to drive now three years too late,but whatever.
    I'm trying to take more risks and get out into the world more especially as I'm older
    but still have time.

    Started my own business in the early days of this current recession (2007) with no capital and only my reputation to cling to. Failing would have meant embarrassment (which I don't do) and a severe blow to self-esteem.

    Fortunately for me, failure wasn't an option. I was profitable from the beginning, to the surprise of my accountant, last year was fantastic and this year will likely triple if not quadruple last year.Currently, there is more work than we can handle to my expectations of efficiency.

    Explored some abandoned mine shafts last month while camping. Some of them I went miles in only to turn a corner and a dark hole just emerges from the ground. One wrong step...

    Very exhilarating.

    Dunno of that counts :P I think the last risk I took was moving in with a bunch of E's last May (of whom its pretty hard to have a deep convo with). Turned out to be a pretty good "risk"

    Met a girl online who lived on the other side of the country. Got on a plane and went to meet her, stayed three weeks, came back home, packed my stuff, and moved cross country. Spent ten years with her (the last five of it married) before getting divorced. I'd do it again.

    On topic, I haven't taken any risks lately. But I will be at the end of this month when I go on my first trip alone. I planned it all myself and haven't really told anyone about it. I know my family wouldn't approve, so I've had to be sneaky about it. It's probably risky behavior in a not-so-good way, but risky all the same.

    Traveling by yourself and having just to depend on yourself in an environment that's unfamiliar to you is pretty cool and very challenging, especially if you've never done it before.

    I can only imagine.
    It's gonna be an amazing experience, whatever happens. I'm going because of a friend's birthday, but really, it's become more for me than him. It'll be my first real taste of independence. It's scary to think about, but so exciting.
