Well said Cags! I would also propose that calculated risk is with us at all times. For example I can put a motorcycle on it's back wheel at 100mph with very little risk. I would guess there are hundreds of things that would pose an impossibly high risk for me that other people would find 100% safe.
Thank you my friend! I am having a ball, the new house is terrific and we are having a roast dinner tonight. I wish all my friends such good fortune! I just love seeing my daughter and 5 grandchildren daily.
I'll take all kinds of risks (like financial) as long as they aren't of the physical-risk variety. I'm no a big one for taking risks to my life unless there's a really, really, good reason (and that would have to involve making my kids' lives better, not my own).
When it comes to risking my life, I'd rather live a rotten life than none.
I would evaluate the risk and if it is worth taking why not? You are right the clean life!! most of life passes us by because we do not want to leave our comfort zone. I was there once not any more. The worst fear is fearing fear.... once you walk the bridge you have conquered it and its behind you. We need to cross many bridges to reach distant lands!!
Well, I'd like to think I would take the risk, it would depend on what I would gain, versus the downside. But, as others have said, you take risks everyday, what might be a small risk to one could be a great risk to another. When I was younger, I didn't have the capacity to judge the serious consequences of the risks I took, I just took them. Now that I am older and hopefully wiser, thinking about those consequences raises all sorts of fearful questions, and that scares the hell out of me.
I and my group of close friends from my school days (about 20 in all) took risks and my life has been better, more exciting, more different, more experiences, more of most things - but I am the only one left. Few of the others made it past their late thirties, and none past 45. Except me, so I would say yes but statistics would disagree with me
