“The biggest risk is not taking any risk…In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.” – Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook would not have been what it is today if Zuckerberg and his colleagues did not have the guts to pursue their idea to connect the world through social media – which back then was not just revolutionary – it was seemingly impossible. Similarly, if you don’t push your ideas and become your own best cheerleader, you’re shying away from what could potentially propel your career to where you want it to be. If you’ve been keeping your brilliant ideas inside your head, it’s time to start taking smart risks, like investing or starting a business.
