Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now

Goethe

Broadening the definition

Elaborating on risk-taking is fairly straight forward. It is the willingness to try something new or challenging that requires one to push through uncertainty. Its about having courage and inner resolve. Risk-taking includes having discernment; that ability to weigh out whether or not the risk justifies the benefits. We encourage our students to think about the advantages and disadvantages of taking risks. Risk-takers tend to be enterprising and entrepreneurial as they demonstrate a boldness to take new or unknown paths!
