    Taking risk is life.

    We take many risks in life. It is said the man and women who risk nothing does nothing. We have to take the risk, because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
    I have read a poem on risk;-
    To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk appearing sentimental. To rich out for another is to risk involvement. To expose feelings is to risk exposing our true self.
    To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk loss.
    To love is to risk not being loved in return.
    To live is to risk dying.
    To hope is to risk despair.
    To try at all is to risk failure.
    But, who takes risks reach the goal.
    So, take the risk in life.

    Well said by the author. Our life is surrounded by risk factor and risk element and still we boast of winning and being winners than others. So we take pleasure in winning and goes to sad mood on loosing.

    We should take risks in our life they should be worth taking. Getting down from a running bys from the front gate is a risk which should not be taken by anybody. The risk is not worth your life. Similarly not taking any risk at any cost is not correct. We should always take a calculated risk.
    Sometimes we may have to take risks to forward movement. They can be taken. So one should analyse the situation and see whether taking a risk is worth or not. If we feel it is worth we can take that risk. Otherwise no.
    By investing a few lakhs we can start a business. It is a risk worth taking if you lose that money also you may not be on the roads. But if it is the only money you have you should not completely invest and take the risk. Similarly when we invest our earnings in various instruments also we should assess the risk correctly and then only we have to invest.

    always confident

    Nice thoughts about taking risks. The author has modeled the poem in a lovely way involving things largely as a risk factor in every life instance. It is how we see every life moment as a risk or as a staircase to progress. Be it risking on one job to get another job or taking another kind of risks.
    Do what inspires you !!

    As we grow up, we are overprotected by our parents, families and elders who stop children from exploring, from fending for themselves, we are made to feel scared of the unknown and as we become adults,it takes some time to break this mould. I think, this also influences the outlook of us to risk taking and our risk profile. For instance, before the Gujarat elections, people played in the stock market investing with the hope that if BJP wins, they would get good returns. Now they would certainly enjoy the profits as they took a risk where in the outcome was not guaranteed. Similarly in real life, we need to take a risk, more so a calculated risk as long as we understand the effects of failure and have the mindset to accept failure in our stride and move on. We have to take risks, to convert opportunities into realities. If we succeed in a risky venture then it is a victory, if we fail, then it becomes a lesson and not a negative event. Such should be the approach of people towards risk.
