  • Risking to plunge into a new territory is what we call enterprising. An entrepreneur can't succeed walking on the same terrain again and again. In the quest to pace up success graph, one has to find comfort in the uncomfortable situation. Walking on the same path can ensure you some solace but not mega success. Calculated risk is safe and secure, it bring challenges for sure but pave the way for glory. Disgrace and distress are the part of life, infact they are recipe for satiating life.

  • In the brisk paced life, playing safe is a big risk and can be equated with no play. And no result can be expected. If you want to swim, dare to step into the water. Life is full of risk. Sitting at home and doing nothing also has risk. For example, ceiling can fall on you, fan can crash on your head etc. you can suffer for many reasons even when you opt for a safe life. Taking risk can get you results, you get used to of all facade of life. Facing ups and downs, feeling adrenaline rush, dealing with anxious moments make you immune to stress. You take hard decisions and never shrug to do hard work.

  • Life evolves when we take calculated and responsible risk. If we don't make our life happen, life happens on its own. We can't cross a sea without risking to take head on giant waves. Big things need big heart, chicken hearts lead a mediocre life. Taking chances teach you many new things and you see yourself at the top of learning curve. Playing a risky shot means you are up failures. Consistent failures ultimately brings big success.
