WHAT IS YOUR STRATEGY AS A SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR: CONSIDER SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH RISK-TAKERS.

A big part of comfort with risk is exposure. If you have people in your social circle, or especially in your family, who have been willing to take risks, then you will be much more likely to do the same. “There’s a huge social aspect to entrepreneurship,”says Monica Mehta, author of The Entrepreneurial Instinct .
Risk-takers will be more likely to encourage you to take chances, and they will also be living examples of what it takes to risk and fail and risk again. “If you look at the biography of a famous person, it all depends on where in the biography you stop,” Mehta says. “Success comes by way of many, many failures.”
These statements sound so easy to say but so difficult to imagine implementing them. It takes time before we figure out who exactly we can run to in case of anxiety about starting a venture. In the world full of competition, it takes a great deal of time to find people who are conscious of other people’s well being, those who are willing to sacrifice their on comfort to develop others.
For social entrepreneurs, we ought to find those who have traveled the same part, they are there in abundance, and our task is to look for them. When we find them we can sure we are safe to travel in the same for we will get counsel.
The next strategy is to set many small goals. To get comfortable with risk, start small by setting a series of manageable goals that you can accomplish in a short period of time. Include some that are a little scary, but the main purpose is to get comfortable with risk taking. Repetition of a habit forms a character. Being accustomed to small successes will build your self-confidence. This way we can take up failures when they occur for as it is said early successes will motivate you to seek out bigger risks.
