I would rather live a life of risks than live in a prison of fear! Anything of accomplishment will never come without us taking a risk. We cannot live without taking risks. Risks are woven into the very fabric of our daily lives!
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool. To weep is to risk appearing sentimental. To reach out to another is to risk involvement. To expose feelings is to risk exposing our true selves. 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. (Author Unknown)
With all that said, the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. Matthew chapter 25 speaks of three men given talents; the first takes a risk by using his and gains more, the second does the same thing. But the third chooses to risk nothing by burying what he has and losses what little he did have.
The person who risks nothing:
– Accomplishes nothing
– Has nothing
– Feels nothing
– And in the end, it becomes nothing.
Risk is essential for growth, so go big or don’t go at all!!
