RISK TAKING

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

RISK TAKING

Security is mostly a superstition.  It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

Helen Keller.

Risk Taking Is Free

To Laugh Is To Risk Appearing the Fool

To Weep Is To Risk Appearing Sentimental

To Reach Out For Another Is To Risk Involvement

To Expose Feeling Is To Risk Exposing Your True Self

To Place Your Ideas, Your Dreams Before The Crowd Is To Risk Their Loss.

To Love Is To Risk Not Being In Return

To Live Is To Risk Dying

To Hope Is To Risk Despair

To Try Is To Risk Failure

But The Risk Must Be Taken, Because the Greatest Hazard in Life Is To Risk Nothing

The Person Who Risks Nothing, Does Nothing, Has Nothing And Is Nothing

He May Avoid Suffering and Sorrow, but He Simply Cannot Learn, Feel, Change, Grow, Love or Live

Chained By His Certitudes, He Is a Slave, He Has Forfeited Freedom

Only a Person Who Risks …Is Free.

    From RISK TAKING…….”but the risk must be taken,because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing
    The person who risks nothing,does nothing,has nothing, and is nothing.”

    Sounds familiar? How about the quote from the Holy Vedas? “The worst of actions is inaction.”

    Speaking the truth in today’s world is also risky, and for that we have invented a catchy phrase – “Politically incorrect.”

    your chela,
