Taking A Risk Changed My Life

I want to tell you a story about risk and how taking a risk changed my life.

In May of 2014, I was looking for a new way to work out. Up until that point, I had a membership at the local gym, but I wasn’t putting in the effort and frankly, it showed.

As I was looking around for another form of exercise, I passed by a local martial arts school. I must have walked by it hundreds of times, but something stopped me that night. I walked in, asking for more information and the rest is history.

Earlier this evening. I earned my black belt in muy thai kick boxing. Taking a risk for me is never easy. The comfort zone sometimes is a little too comfortable.

“You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.”-Roy T. Bennett

Stepping out of my comfort zone and taking the risk to simply ask for more information was just the first step. There are some risks in my life that I regret taking, this is not one of them.

I encourage my readers to take a risk, at least once in a while. You never know where the risk will lead.
