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?
