There are lots of reasons to take a risk.
“To laugh is to risk appearing as a fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach for another is to risk involvement.
To expose your ideas, your dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk being not loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To believe is to failure.
But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The people who risk nothing, do nothing, have nothing are nothing.
They may avoid suffering and sorrow but they cannot learn,
feel the change, grow, love, live.
Chained by their attitudes, they are slaves;
they have forfeited their freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.”
-William Arthur Ward
This is one of the most realistic poems I've read. Whatever you do in life there is always a critic.
Good or bad it's up to you. There is no assurance in anything in life, a career, a love life, that something you want to do, right now, but it's just not possible. Quotes are easy to read and understand, but when you're in the circumstances, it's hard. Diamonds form from tons of pressure. The risk is jumping into the unknown and the unknown place is always scary; that is why most people want to stay in the safe zone. But if you don't try, you'll never know. Sometimes it's trial and error. Nations and cities were built by people who take risks, who build dreams and don't stop until it happens. There is no life with no problems, even the rich and popular people have issues. It's how you overcome your problems that liberate you. It's when we accept things, situations, challenges, and get through it that we become free. And when you do you are the only person who can feel that freedom.
Taking a risk takes a heart, a heart that is willing to accept challenges no matter what. It's a gamble, the more you expect to win the more you don't, so don't expect much, you'll probably be surprised. Sifting through your thoughts every day on how you get through takes a lot. There are situations that are beyond our control. As the quote says " If you can't change your situation, change your attitude towards the situation." It's always in how you make up your mind. You are in charge of your thoughts and feelings.
Taking a risk is a bravest the thing you do. You lose some, you win some. Risk takers are people who don't give up no matter what the circumstances are. Risk takers are dreamers who write down their dreams and turn them into goals. Risk takers are fighters who strive to keep going and they expect troubles and deal with them.
You can't be too ready because every lesson in life is different. We all have something to fight for because if not, what are you living for? It takes courage and guts to take risks, but you have to because it will be your story. Those are the reasons to take a risk.
