Take the Risk: Would You?

Some people indulge themselves in taking a risk. They intended to do it for the sake of reaching their personal goals in life. “Can we blame them?” I think there is nothing to take the risk of moving forward and trying to reach their ultimate dreams. It’s another story if taking the risk of life that might in danger their lives. For instance, the photo was taken during the Buzkashi event in one of the far flung areas in Tajikistan. These two men went to the river and wash themselves up. “Would you take the risk and take the chances on something?” Image Credit: Shavkat

@Shavkat That's right my friend.

I believe that taking a risk and taking a chance in life is far different from the context of putting your life in danger. The former pushes you to not be afraid and make the most of your life, while the latter is a silly and immature state of mind that you will not die no matter what you do.

If I know the risk is worth to my success or others, I would try it.

If we can perceive the possible outcomes, then I agree that it is worth to try it.

Taking risk in life is necessary. But knowing the river or any water body is dangerous and going there for small purposes can't be appreciated.

I have one life to live to be risking things, these people are not satisfied with what ever they have in life.

I agree. It wasn't always taking the risk. We have to think twice before doing it.

those 2 men are really taking the risk but i hope they were great swimmers so they won't be eaten up by the water current. i recall a news about a Fil-American who swam and was taken by the strong waves until his remains were found far from his diving point. i can no longer take any risks because i have a heart condition, but i also believe i have achieved something now.

I do think that you had proven your abilities for a couple of times now. We don't need to plunge into a risky situation. Regardless, you can handle it grace if encountering the same risk situations.

At this point, I am still a risk taker. Of course, I have to think a couple of times before doing it.

@Hannihar If I am just thinking of myself, I will go for the risk. Unfortunately, I need to be serious at this point in time.

I did take a few risks, getting married & having children. (More dangerous than those two men in that image! )

I think so, my friend. Getting married and raise children are more risky to deal with.lol

@LadyDuck I am not at physical risk. Taking the risks when accepting certain jobs. When I accepted the mission in Tajikistan, I took the risk.
