Risks are a vital part of life. Without risks, it isn’t quite possible to learn or grow. Without taking risks, no progress can be made, and life wouldn’t be quite as interesting as it can be.
The very birth of FundsIndia.com was a risk. Six years ago, online investing was in its infant stage in India, and online mutual fund investing platforms were unheard of. But if the journey till now is any indication, then this risk was certainly worth it for us, and for all our stakeholders.
As an ode to risk and the promise it holds, we’ve just launched a social platform called ‘RiskIsGood.com’. This is a one-of-its-kind initiative that is aimed at changing people’s perception of risk.
Why it is built for you
RiskIsGood.com is a place for YOU – a place where you can share and read the many experiences with risk; a place where you can inspire, and be inspired by real life stories of risks taken in life, and the outcomes of the same.
At RiskIsGood.com, we’d like to hear your stories of lessons learnt, and challenges overcome; your stories of dreams fulfilled, and ambitions achieved; your stories that show the world that risk is indeed good.
Why are we doing this?
Risk is often demonised in society as an ‘unnecessary evil’. Most people would tell you that risks are just needless danger, and that the safe and well-trodden path is the only ‘true path’ to follow in life. But we beg to differ.
We believe that taking risks isn’t about needlessly courting danger. It’s about daring to step out of your comfort zone to achieve your ambitions. It’s about discovering your limits, and realising your true potential. It’s about giving yourself a chance to realise your dreams.
Each risk you take is an opportunity for you to learn, and to grow. Irrespective of whether you succeed or fail in your endeavours, you will come out stronger and wiser than you were before.
Tell us your story!
From moving to a new city, changing jobs, or just following your dream of starting your own business – we’re sure you’ve made at least one ‘risky’ decision in life. Maybe the risk you took worked well for you, or maybe it didn’t. Either way, it would have taught you something, and helped you grow as a person. It would have given you a story to narrate.
We want to listen to that story.
So, visit RiskIsGood.com now, and share your story with us. Tell us what you did, what you learnt, and how it helped you grow. Tell us how risk has been good to you.
Who knows? Your story may just inspire hundreds of risk-takers in the making.
