there are a lot of times in my life when i chose to just let it go and not take the risk. now i live in regrets and "what if's". what if i take this risk, would it be different? yes, if i took the risk and succeeded, my life would turn around. if i failed, at least i tried. i won't have to think of anything else. i would have my peace of mind.

if you decide on something. you take a risk. whether it will turn out to be favorable or unfavorable to you still you decide on it. It is Risk, 50-50 chance, and be ready with failures so you won't get hurt when it turned out to be on the other side of the coin. Yes, take the risk it is worth

if you take a risk, there really is a possibility to fail and i'm ready for that. of course i;d be hurt but eventually, i'll learn from it and it will make me a better person.

don't you think life would be boring if there would be no risks involved?

That is why it is good to risk something sometimes. I don't mean your freedom at all here. I would never risk my freedom for anyone.

well that's your opinion but i think i'd be willing to risk everything if i know that the prize in the end is worth it.

Wow that's a heavy statement iluvusabado and to me requires a lot sacrifice. And now I've got question for you. What good would your life be with no freedom since you will be giving up everything that life has to offer? There may be one but it has nothing to do with freedom.

That is true. We should not be afraid to risk most especially if what we tjink is something that would benefit us. Not all successful people achieved their goal without yaking any risks. They took the risk and turned out good for them. If we fail once, it should not stop us in reachinb for our goal.

i think failures are not really failures but experience learned so that next time, you'll know what to do.

yes, it may hurt at first but in the long run, you'll be thankful you were hurt because it made you stronger to face the worse troubles in the time to come.

i have a handful of lost opportunities before.but i dont regret it.because i know that if i chose any one of it before,i may have a lot of money now but i will fail to see my kids growup and its one of the sacrifices i will be taking ever i chose those lost opportunities.but now im happy and satisfied with what i have done because for me good memories is what matters most than any riches in the world.

I'm telling you the risks I took are the sweetest thing happened to me. At first I was hesitant becuase what if I fail and yes I do fail at some point but I learned from there and made me wiser. I've seen a lot of people and heard that behind their success are taking risks and failing sometimes.

yes, you would never succeed if you never took a risk. not only in business but in life in general. there are a lot of failures you may encounter but you just have to stand up again for every fall. that's life.

I agree with you in some way. There are those moments when I thought I should have done it, but instead I just let it passed. I know the feeling, but as time goes by I realize that whatever things we decide or do have the same risks. Whatever decisions we make, those are the risks we are taking. Be it things fall into places or failure to accomplish on the risks we are taking, the feeling of regrets and the question of "what if's" will always lurk in the corner of our peace of mind. Just learn to weigh all the possibilities and improve ourselves in future and be ready with Plan B. That's how we grow up, to be more careful, much wiser and stronger after each battle. I always live by this quote by Helen Keller, "when one door closes, another door opens". So, just make the most of what is left of the day. Good luck to you.

I learn to take the risk to invest in the stock, I would learn how,what term it mean first before spur the money in the stock. I learn to success i need to stay on as long as passion enough to understand it and master it.

yes, you will really learn a lot while taking risks. it may not be easy in the beginning but you will eventually learn it.
