Healthy Risks and How to Take Them

Healthy Risks and How to Take Them

Do you ever feel like you’re not moving forward in life? Do you feel like you’re stuck in a loop, repeating the same patterns over and over again? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s a feeling that many of us experience at one point or another. But the good news is that there’s a way out of this cycle, and it starts with taking healthy risks.

In this episode of the Butterfly Szn podcast, Aisha shares her own experience of feeling unmotivated and stuck, and how she realized that it was because she was playing small. She explains that taking risks is a natural part of life, and that the more we make decisions, ask better questions, and take healthy risks, the more we’ll move forward.

Aisha also shares some questions that she’s been asking herself recently to become more aware of where she needs to take healthy risks. These questions include:

  • What am I avoiding because I’m afraid of failure or rejection?
  • What’s the worst that could happen if I take this risk?
  • What’s the best that could happen if I take this risk?
  • What would I regret more, taking the risk or not taking the risk?

By asking these questions and being honest with ourselves, we can start to identify where we need to take healthy risks in our lives. Aisha also shares some examples of where taking risks has paid off for her in the past, such as starting her own business and taking a chance on a new relationship.

But taking risks can be scary, and it’s important to remember that not all risks are created equal. Aisha emphasizes the importance of taking healthy risks, which are risks that have the potential to bring positive outcomes and growth, rather than risks that could have negative consequences.

So, where are you playing small in your life right now? Where do you need to take a healthy risk? It’s time to break out of the cycle and start moving forward. As Aisha says in the podcast, “Every time you take a risk, you’re opening yourself up to new possibilities and new experiences.”
