All in an attempt to improve your circumstances or take advantage of an opportunity. Yes, risk-taking can expose you to potential loss, failure, embarrassment, rejection, criticism, and the possibility of getting hurt. You must, however, keep in mind that every great feat that has ever been achieved in human history required some sort of risk.

Their risks eventually paid off, and they reaped the tremendous rewards for taking a chance on themselves. As you work through this map you will develop a knack for taking more intelligent risks that will help you accomplish your goals.
