Worth the risk (of reading..)

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, then by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines! Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream and discover.”

                                                                                              -- Mark Twain

"A ship in harbor is safe – but that is not what ships are for."

                                                                                               --John A. Shedd

“The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live”

                                                                                              --Leo. F. Buscaglia

“Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one’s ideas, to take a calculated risk and to act”

                                                                                          --Andrew Malraux (French Statesmen 1901-1976)

"First you jump off the cliff and you build wings on the way down."

                                                                                                --Ray Bradbury

Meaningful as they are supposed to be, ‘Quotes’ have the ability to underline or highlight our own thought process. Probably that is the reason they appeal to us.

Majority people have negative thoughts and feelings about taking risks. Risk is considered a synonym with danger, uncertainty, gambling, speculation and the fear of loss. As a result, many people avoid risks. There is a thin line between avoiding risks and thinking that risks have been managed; AND actually managing risk proactively. Managing risk towards relationships, health, career and finance has the ability to keep life flowing easily.
