Why are people scared of something new and different? Most people will chose to stick with the old ways even thought they are not happy about it rather than risking a little bit with getting in something new. I’m not talking about something specific, it’s that way about anything really.
I wonder, is it the fear of failure or fear of risk? Or what? This thought crossed my mind because I’ve gotten to face situation like that a lot lately and it just made me wonder.
I guess I’m not like most everybody. If I’m not happy about something and I want things to change, I won’t think much, I’ll go for that new stuff, I’ll rather chose to try something new even though there is a risk of failure instead of sticking with the old ways that I’m not happy about anyways. I just look at it like this – it can’t get much worse and if it fails in the end – well, at least I tried and then I’ll know. If I didn’t try, I’d never know the outcome and down the road, I’d regret not giving that new and unknown a chance.
That’s how I see it and, it might come down to my mentality. I just like to be ahead of the game and without giving a try to the new stuff, you’ll never be there at the top.
With this I just want to encourage people to risk it a little sometimes, go for that new stuff. No matter the outcome, at least it will be something new and different and always a lesson learned. There are no lessons learned from the old ways.
