TAKING CHANCES, TAKING RISKS







Don't be afraid to try new things!

G
ood fortune doesn't come to us, but we go to it by taking risks, wrote Vigil, the greatest of the Roman poets.


F
ortune doesn't come to us by luck, it sides with those who dare. Success has nothing to do with luck. We have to earn it through diligence, discipline, determination, and of course, taking risks and chances every day. What separates achievers from ordinary people is their willingness to take optional, as well as necessary risks.

M
any people are afraid to try new ways outside of their comfort zone, as they do not feel comfortable to doing they are not used t
o. But how can we grow if we keep on doing the same things over and over again. We are meant to grow, to experience unlimited adventures offered by life. As one author says, "let's practice shedding our skin, bursting through our present comfort level and keep stretching by regularly taking risks."

Ang mga mahilig sa sugal, they always take the risk. The more they take chances, the more they lose.

I totally agree with you Bay, I even have a poem very much related to your article entitled "Game we call life".

Eid Mubarak, katulad mo ako sumugal at naghanap ng kapalaran sa ibang bansa, sugal na masasabi, sarili mo ang nakataya, kapag nanalo Pamilya ang magiging masaya.

I agree with you Klaus. People wouldn't take any risk unless they are on their own.

Thanks for posting this article martin.

JPA,

Ang ibig sabihin, you should have the willingness to take chances every day. Just going to sleep, you risk not waking up, but you go ahead and do it anyway.
