On Chicken Soup for The Soul’s ‘Friend Friday’ Podcast, Ashton Kutcher delivered a motivational pep talk about taking risks and its importance. He said:
“The worst thing that can happen is you fail. The minute you start to become comfortable with failure, you actually open up the opportunity to do anything you want.
You don’t become Michael Jordan unless you take the shots.
I work with entrepreneurs every day. I have like 120 investments in technology companies. These are all people that are, you know, taking on entire industries with new ideas. You can always find a reason not to do something.
It’s much harder to inspire yourself to overcome all the reasons not to do something and give it a shot.”
Take the chance. Give it a shot. In the end, you’ll only regret the things you didn’t do.
