You read about what makes a great man with great mind, so let’s talk about the end product of great mind thinking towards making a decision, taking risk of the opportunity recognized or chance given or seen. However, I will tell you frankly that it takes a great mindful person to recognize an opportunity at a point in time and be able to feast on. But in a situation when we have the risk not taken, the chance not given or seen then we tends to atone the great mind.
But let’s talk on some points like risk, opportunity or chance, why do I need to take risk, why does my risk fails, greed and risk and so on…
This concept have two sides either taken or not, but every decision depends on the opportunity or chance on ground. Risk however, have to do with everything that makes us human, and let me tell you, if you are not ready to take risk then you are not living, because everyone at a moment in time got the chance or opportunity to decide their fate or how they will live their lives in the next coming year or on a more foresight view, set the fate of their next coming generations.
I am telling you we all have some times in our lives where a chance would be bestowed upon us and the only two-sided fact ( Risk) facing us would be the only bane and the dilemma we found ourselves in whether to take the chance or not. But every decision depends on the chance given. Therefore, risk is the conviction in decision making.
Look, many thought of risk as anything negative and unreasonable to decide upon since it has probability of failing but the truth is much of the big people we know or seen have actually trail this path we are thinking about and the decision or risk the took then brought them to where they are now.
I was talking to a friend of recent who ultimately believe that the track or path to make it big in this life of ours is you being connected to a resourceful source. But I tell him that opportunity or chance provided, given or seen and respectfully utilized, oils the wheel of success and bring forth connections.
Opportunities lie all around you but it depends on the risk you are willing and ready to take and live for. Let talk about opportunity itself.
This is the nucleus or device of all life changer such as business ideas and money bag dude who is ready to invest to make a boom and thus become world richest man simply because he took the opportunity when due. Also, what about a genius with an invention and got no stash house of cash to promote his invention like that rich man who wants to buy or partner with him and make name.
How about a low income worker having little to start with but have an idea of a small business that his or her one or two months salaries can start and turn the tables around. All these are opportunities right under your nose, you only need to recognize the chance when you see it and just decision on it (take the risk now).. because there are chances given which if lose can only come once in awhile or even not at all till the next generation sets in.
I guess your mind is on the lookout for anything that can turn your life around, so is mine too and that of the rich man whose wealth very minded youth nowadays to find something doing, something that brings money or comfort, or change to his/her life but here lies many opportunities at your finger tip, even on this site youbiss.com, you have access to countless business information and ideas that you can venture your resources on… take the risk of your lifetime now before it is too late.
WHY DO I NEED TO TAKE RISK?
I know you might be asking yourself ‘why do I need to take risk’, which you always do whenever any opportunity lies before you but let me tell you this. Whenever you thought of this question, what comes to your mind are of two folds…
One- you think of, if you don’t take the risk and it turned out to be a jackpot, thus you gain nothing, which is obvious ‘risk nothing, gain nothing’
Two- you will also think that if I risk it fine and I won, I won and if otherwise then regret comes in which is also in track ‘no risk no regret’. But the bane to success is just not taking the risk. Well all risks seem risky. When you are focused on your values, the right risk becomes clear.
You see, the life we are living is full of risk, life itself is a risk because if it is not do we know what we do everyday that brings us straight to our unknown dying days with regret of not accomplishing so many things. Though everyone must die but does it ever occur to you that not every people die penury.
Some died and lives on, because they made a tough decision of their life and risk not just for the present dissatisfying status quo but for the long-term benefits which laid off, while some passed away on the face of the earth and leave no trace of themselves… (what a pity). I am telling you this just the time for you to grab the opportunity when it comes become ‘the risk not taken is more dangerous than the risk taken’
WHY DO MY RISK FAILS?
You ever thought about why your risks fail, well you have to understand some rudiments in risk-taking for you to be a successful risk-taker…
- Owning up a value
I am telling you values plays a vital role in risk taking, when you have a value you are looking up to then risk become interesting. Most risk fails simply because the risk lacks value so nothing is at stake.
- Fear of failure
Listen, fear of failure is just a failure itself so you might not take the risk either because the outcome depends on it. A successful risk-taker does not fear of failing they take it has stepping stone to success. They do not fear to fail and when they fail they don’t quit, they know success is just around the corner
- Maintaining calculable risk
For risk not to fail it has to be measured without any personal greed attachment, that is calculable risk. You have to make sure that your percentage of taking risk weighs more than 50/50, extend it to 70 or more, let the odds be on your side so you can be rest assured that your risk will paid off.
- Timing is of the essence (procrastination)
Procrastination is a bane to success, as well as success in risk taking depends largely on the timing. If you delay an opportunity it passed away to another person and thus hinder your chance of success
- Avoid inspired doubt from others
I am telling, people always have their opinion in things, some are good and some bad but it is up to you to recognize the good and avoid the bad doubt because they ain’t good for making decisions. Doubts are just inspiring fears, and fear is not good for taking a risk or else the risk fails.
Hello, i still here, hope I have been of help in elevating your spirit in taking risk and avoiding the risk not taken which is dangerous than risk taken or the chance or opportunity given and not recognized or seen…
