“The biggest risk a person can take is to do nothing”
Every person's life is like a vessel that carries them through the ups and downs of life with a few hopes or a sense of hopelessness. Because salvation is the ultimate goal of human existence, much as how a ship sinks to reach its shoreline, salvation is the objective of life.
The undiscovered existence is comparable to a ship that is berthed on the shore and never exposed to the sea's waves. The docking station may represent a desk at a job you've had for a while but haven't advanced in, or it may resemble someone who prevents your advancement. One of the most incredible journeys that a person must go through in all aspects of life is their work, adulthood, and lifestyle. Even while certain things are known only to humans, others may be known or unknown to anybody, we nonetheless manage to get comfortable and transform our Maybe’s into Later’s into Never’s. Although change is unavoidable, our purpose cannot be denied, and when we allow that purpose to develop, even if it means altering our habits, we can only fully appreciate who we truly are. It's time, in my opinion, to make a shift, to let go of all moorings and explore the area beyond the horizon, or at the very least farther away from the water.
Fear is among the most fundamental human emotions. This emotion is attached with each and every aspect of life. Fear of losing someone is a very special kind of fear which always running in our mind. Fear functions like an instinct since it is wired into the neural system. We have innate survival instincts that allow us to scream in horror at the first sign of danger or unease. Fear and danger both live together. Fear is proliferating in companion with danger. Fear of failure several times stopped us from making decisions. A ship cannot be docked at harbor just because of the fear of sinking.
“The secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment is to live dangerously”
Taking risks in life is a form of success in itself, because you might either succeed or have a more rewarding experience. Experience always comes through the path of self-explanation i.e., getting experience is pretty self-explanatory in itself. First you try to explain all kinds of expected consequences of taking danger. Facing danger is just like the ship trying to tackle and manage itself in the ups and downs of the ocean. A ship may be secure in a port, but if you needed security, you should construct a castle rather than a ship.
Ships at port are almost worthless. They run into danger after they leave the port. A ship is designed to navigate the oceans, break through waves, endure bad weather, and go to far-off locations to achieve its purpose. Ships are designed to travel, whether it's to trade products, win over the locals, or unleash a nation's wrath.
Taking a calculated risk is a fundamental requirement of human existence. If you want to survive It is necessary to take risks in life. Sometimes the circumstances go out of our control. In such circumstances maintaining peace of mind is the biggest challenge in front of us. Strategy always wins. A full proof strategy can only be made with a calm mind. Risk and danger always teach us how to manage our mental peace and calm and perform in our best way in the circumstances of hardship.
If You're Going Through Hell, Keep Going
Adversity can sometimes seem like hell and get worse, but we should not lose hope and keep exploring. Everybody encounters adversity at some time in their lives. You experience it in an unusual and unanticipated way. Adversity is how we develop and learn, even if it is unpleasant and chaotic. Adversity makes man stronger and mature. It might be hard to see how a crisis can finally result in development when it is happening in the heat of the moment. Adversity can help you persist in the face of present stress.
Adversity is the ability to recover from hardship and learn from the experience. It did not come to bow down on us, but it tries to raise us at newer heights. While difficulties are painful, they may also bring out the best in us. Light always comes through intense darkness so whenever life goes through darkness, we should intensify our efforts and be self-motivated. Investors must educate themselves and comprehend the fundamental causes of miseries if we are willing to put an end to the suffering in the world. They may suffer losses and be unhappy as a result of any ignorance on their part.
Our nation got freedom from the rule of the British empire in 1947. This tremendous achievement is the result of struggle and hardship faced by our freedom fighters. Bhagat Singh, Chandra Shekhar Azad and several others have sacrificed their lives. Struggle culminates in big success and struggle in itself is a big success.
Struggle of Prince Siddhartha with himself makes them Bhagavan Buddha. Risk, Danger and Struggle are the indispensable part of life. Facing and struggling in life is not a danger or risk but avoiding or running away from struggle is risky and dangerous. It destroys the entire life of the people because this kind of mental tendency makes the individual feel comfortable but in actuality it acts like a sweet poison and destroys the individual gradually and the individual is not able to recognize his process of destruction.
In 1991 the Indian economy was going through a severe Balance of Payment crisis because of the very fast decline of India's forex reserves. This decline in forex reserve was basically due to high current account deficit. The economy at that point of time was struggling and the government of India came with LPG (Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization). The implementation of this reform changed the scenario of the entire Indian economy and now the Indian economy became the world's fastest and 5th largest economy.
“Ignorance is the mother of all the evil and all the misery we see. Let men have light, let them be pure and spiritually strong and educated, then alone will misery cease in the world, not before. We may convert every house in the country into a charity asylum, we may fill the land with hospitals, but the misery of man will still continue to exist until man's character changes.”
