Take the Risk!

Life is all about risk taking.The truth is whether you act or not,risk is involved,you take the risk doing a thing and take a risk not doing that thing.

Each day we travel by road… near and far, having no hope of our return but we still take the risk anyway,knowing in our heart that some people did not have to travel that far before they found themselves in their early graves.Even if we say we are not going out,we take the risk of not being exposed to our world, forgetting that some did not need to go out before their lives ended.

Every night we go to bed,not knowing whether we would wake up, but we still take the necessary risk anyway,even if we refuse to sleep, we risk not dreaming.

We left our comfortable homes and family to be in school or work, not sure of meeting them intact when we go back but we took the necessary risk, knowing that things would be worst if we don’t.

We hope and believe in God even though we have not seen him,we again took the necessary risk, because you can imagine how empty and uninteresting life would be if there was no believe of an existing supernatural being.

knowing that we will all die someday, we take the risk of working hard to be successful, if we don’t take the risk, we would die without impact but if we did, even though we are dead we would still have our footprints to be remembered.

Life is full of opportunities but the road leading to such opportunities have so many potholes,whether you will use these opportunities is determined by your abilities to cross holes i.e for you to use opportunity or make impact, you must take the risk. Show me a man that hates taking risk and I would show you an ordinary,stagnant,wasteful and unproductive man.

The man who invented the airplane took the risk of flying it, even though he did not know whether or not it would work and today we are enjoying his efforts and the reward of his risk.

Every one is creative but the difference is some people take the risk of exploiting theirs while others left theirs dormant and died without positive impact. No wander Ley Brown said “ The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream”.

The greatest fear one should have is not about death but about what you would be remembered for. Always ask yourself, “What am I going to Leave Behind?”. The likes of Socrates, Alexander the great,sophrate,Plato,Karl Max and Abraham Lincoln died several years ago but their works make them alive in our heart,they are remembered because they took risks trying new things ,even though they were not always successful,some of their theories failed woefully but they didn’t give up, they saw it as a room for improvement. “if I could just press on ,who knows I might eventually get it” they said. They were determined.

Most great and successful people are not perfect,they didn’t get it at once,failure is part of their story. Abraham Lincoln tried so many times in different endeavours but failed, but on the last one,he became President of America, Another of such is our President his Excellency Mohamadu Buhari .Yet some of us have not even tried even once. Just imagine, if they had giving up,but non of this people did, they kept on believing in themselves even when they failed. Note: In every challenge you face there is an opportunity so take the risk,yes!change your problem into possible opportunities. Just look above your present obstacle,”who knows whether you will get it if you try just once more”.why not take the risk you are contemplating and be creative,you might not get it right at first but trust me if you are positive,patient and persistent at the end you will.
