By Rachel Chehova Taking risks is important part of being successful in life. Taking risks requires being confidence and calm. In every situation a person should outweigh the pros and cons of taking the risk. A person should ask themselves, what’s the worst that could come out of taking this risk? In most situations, the most benefits could be conceived from taking the risk, rather than not. Not taking risks is an opportunity loss. People most constantly take risks, to open up opportunities in their life to be successful. For example, in order to make friends in life, you have to step outside your comfort zone, be confident and talk to people. If a person does that they can open up to people and gain success.
