History of Take a Chance Day
Until now, there is not clear evidence about the creator of Take a Chance Day. However, all of us still show our appreciation for Take a Chance Day. It seems to have caught up!
Each of us struggles with seizing an opportunity. Let start that new business, asking someone to promote it, or simply lining up off the platform. We are faced with everyday situations that could technically fall under the category of "seize the opportunity". So why not prepare for it?
Take a Chance Day helps us to know why our dreams have difficulties to become true. Usually, the probability of failure is not as great as we expect. Realizing this and putting failure into perspective is the best start to overcoming the fear of missing out.
Dr. John C. Maxwell wrote, “Sometimes you win - Sometimes you learn”. His book’s title is our greatest lessons gotten from our greatest losses. You won't lose if you keep playing it safe.
So take a few chances in life! Get started today!

- It builds predictions
The expectation of taking a giant leap, jumping from the highest diving platform, stepping on a roller coaster or stepping onto a podium gives us a butterfly-like feeling. If you're going to celebrate today by trying one of the things on your bucket list, such as skydiving or bungee jumping, you'll likely enjoy this unique feeling!
- It evokes a rebellious spirit
We have to face some risks to be different, to go against our limits, to take the road less traveled, all of which possess that spirit of rebellion. We all know a rebel who isn't afraid to take a chance. Do you wish you look like them? Today is for you.
