Most of us are probably not high risk takers, just guessing of course, but maybe there were younger days that you were care free and out there living life.
I did a lot of crazy things when young, but I would say running my own business was the biggest one. Not been great but its fed me, kept a roof over my head, so all good
I’m Interested. What was your business?
For me, driving a car was and is the riskiest thing I do.
It hasn’t happened yet.
I’m going to lose all this weight and become a weight loss consultant.
Salvage, removal of old equipment and stuff for larger companies
I would say that the riskiest thing I ever did was keep going into a program that professionals I really trusted expressed zero enthusiasm for. It nearly killed me, in fact- I had to stop because I had a heart attack scare and the loans were not worth the education.
I’m back just now with my legs holding up and the people I know who know me, who have known me, in a place where I won’t get psychological ripped apart while technically alive.
I went to a questionable institution for a doctoral degree in clinical psychology…now I am back to a reputable institution for a doctoral track (no promise as of today about a doctorate, but they have that request in my application, and they saw me rip apart the obstacles in the accelerated bachelors program) in clinical rehabilitation counseling.
I tried to buy a title instead of earning it through merit. That’s not what champions do.
Hell even my old mentor seemed to express distaste for the idea of that degree…and I always figured that he wanted to see me fail because of his treatment and reputation for failing people…guess I figured wrong.
Never try to buy a certificate of authenticity. Earn that ■■■■.
the riskiest thing I’ve ever done when I was early twenties is have a girlfriend that used needles. about three years later I got tested for AIDS because I was afraid of having been with her.
Was when aids started showing up that i quit any risky Behavior. Was for the better I guess, a lot of fun disappeared though
Overdosing on liquid nicotine when I dissociated from myself.
Never heard of that, must have been bad
I once ate and immediately went swimming…
Getting married three years ago was the riskiest thing I’ve ever done. It felt/feels like hang-gliding off a cliff.
Tried to swim across a river
Took a hit of acid and drove 60 miles to Monterrey Bay with a couple of friends. by the time we got there it was night. We stayed there for ten minutes and then we drove 60 miles back. It was quite an interesting drive home.
That’s what I call living on the edge.
In my younger years I probably took many risks, but one of the riskiest thing I ever did was to move to America, to get married in America and to start my own consulting business in America. That was already 25 years ago.
