1. To take a "leap of faith"; doing something in the hopes of achieving a desired outcome.

2. In sports, to "take a dive" can mean to intentionally lose in order to achieve some sort of external (often financial) gain. It is often thought to be associated with boxing or other combat sports, in which someone would feign being knocked out - "diving" to the mat - in order to prompt a reaction from the referee which they would fail on purpose (a 10-count in boxing, etc.)
