Risk Taking in Internet Investments to Make You a Successful Strategic Risk Taker

Investing your time, effort, knowledge, money in internet investments involve a lot of risk. Life itself is full of uncertainties, the probability that an event will occur or will not is unpredictable and it can swing either way.

Several people online just want to sit on the fence and be a part of the cheering team that just look to enjoy the views of what others are making from their internet businesses or investments without taking any position, they are not hot neither are they cold. Some would rather remain poor than to take risk at all.
Risk Taking in Internet Investments
In the course of a research done by Tony Kido, 82% of young people are afraid of taking risk, hence, may end up losing everything. Knowing that almost everything in life involves risk, and then why not take it?

Learning how to take risk is another route to being successful in life or any internet investments.

Thomas Edison said, “People are not remembered by how few times they failed, but how often they succeed”. Permit me to quickly share this story, a young man was granted loan of $10,000, and he asked himself, “What if I invest this money, and don’t recover it? What if I put this money on fixed deposit in a bank and it liquidates? Well, the man later reasoned, “No, let me keep it at home and think of where to save it. After months of indecision, the robbers struck and took away the money.” He finally lost the money because he was afraid to take risk and resorted to saving at home.

Theodore Roosevelt put it clearly, “For better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat”. Some of us have emerged from painful circumstances with strange insight about whom we are and what we want. Our mistakes? Necessary! Our frustrations, failures, stumbling attempts at growth and progress? Necessary too! Each step on our way taught us a lesson. We went through exactly what we needed to become who we are today.

To be a successful risk taker in offline or internet investments, you must always keep in mind that, occasionally, you may fall short of your goals. That’s okay. It happens to all of us at one time or the other. You just have to pick yourself up, brush off, and get ready for your next challenge.

Let me ask you a serious question, "Is there anything in life that does not involve risk?” Imagine passengers boarding an airplane. Imagine passengers boarding a train. Imagine investors investing millions of dollars in another person’s business. These people are human beings just like you, so why are you afraid? No one knows what he can do till he tries.

Many people choose to play safe in life, rather than play smart. Don’t fear failure so that you refuse to try new things. An over-cautious person burns bridges of opportunity before he gets to them. Significant achievements have never been obtained by taking small risks. The reason so little is accomplished is generally because so little is attempted. See where no one is looking and take action before it too late.
As a strategic risk taker, before you plunge into any business either internet or offline, you must be able to answer the following six questions:
* How much do you know about the business?
* Have you got leadership qualities?
* Are you a good manager of men and resources?
* Have you got confidence in yourself?
* Can you take risks?
* Can you turn threats to opportunities?
