This post is a continuation of the post on crossroads. Most of the time when we reach a crossroad we are left with many options. While we might have vague ideas on what to expect at the other end of the road, there might be unexpected instances ahead. Perhaps obstruction, detour or maybe accidents. Perhaps we might just pass the accident... perhaps we would be IN that accident. We never know. However, what ever happens always have a reasoning behind it, for better or worst. They say every cloud has a silver lining. Remember that.
In our journey through life, we have goals to achieve. Some are easily achieveable. Others are impossible. Perhaps in our journey we might come a cross rainbows and we strive to get to that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Of course there are risks involved. There could be so much obstacles on our way. Perhaps when we get to the end the rainbow would have disappeared... washed away by the rain. Perhaps the rainbow was just a mirage. Perhaps someone else would have reached it first and bag the pot of gold for themselves (and anger the leprechauns in the process!). But we would never know if we did not take that risk in the first place.
Aizuddin wrote an inspiring piece about taking risk... a true story about a man who risked everything and found that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
We should not look at risk as a deterent to to our dreams but look at it as an obstacle that we could overcome.
