EXERCISE 1.2 || DREAMER’S RISK TOLERANCE ASSESSMENT

Complete the template below with your personal answers.

Your Risk Assessing Worksheet
Risk Tolerance Assessment
Write your RT#:

Low RT#

If your RT# is between 10 and 24, you have a low tolerance for risk.

Because your tolerance is low, you should:

  1. Evaluate which barrier is the biggest impediment to your Stretch.
  2. Determine the right timing of the Stretch with the understanding that the “perfect” timing may never exist.
  3. Break the Stretch into small pieces that are conducive to your life­ style (as outlined in the Risk Audit) and your risk tolerance level.

Remember, Stretching isn’t always going to be comfortable, but you must push beyond your comfort zone to experience progress. It’s important that you take time to assess your current life holistically, which includes who you are, your obligations, your tolerance for risk, and most important, your desired goals.

Moderate RT#

If your RT# is between 25 and 35, you have a moderate tolerance for risk.

You should determine where you have room to Stretch further and where you should pause. Because you have a moderate risk tolerance, feel free to move past your comfort zone. You may conceive your best ideas when you allow yourself to leave what is comfortable to you.

High RT#

If your RT# is between 36 and 50, you have a high tolerance for risk.

Given your high tolerance, you need to be a bit more mindful than average about how you Stretch and how your actions affect your lifestyle. While you may be mentally or emotionally prepared to lean into your Stretch, you also need to remember to slow down and evaluate the situa­tion fully. Based on how you completed the Risk Audit, you might discover that there are areas in your life that are not conducive to Stretching at this point. Instead of blindly taking leaps, be sure to fully evaluate the decision and have a specific plan for how you will overcome potential barriers.

Remember, often our best ideas and experiences come from step­ ping outside of our comfort zones and walking in uncharted territory. But always balance exploration with wisdom.
