The risk of doing nothing is the greatest risk you can take in your life!
Once in a kingdom lived a peasant who lived very hard. He was engaged in farming, and he lived very poorly. The earth was stingy, the earth was dry,it has not rained for years. He had almost nothing to eat.There was a sea near his house,and his king told him“In this sea you can hunt fish,because there are plenty of fish here,but if you catch the black fish I’ll cut your head off“.
And he was scared . Scared and hungry . Whether to try to catch fish,or not.Hamlet’s dilemma. To eat or not. He had a fear of death. The fear of death was so strong that he was much stronger than starvation.He chose never to try. “It’s better to have a sparrow in a hand,than a pigeon on a branch“, he thought.
He never tried to catch a fish, all his life, because of the fear that he will catch the very black fish.
The biggest risk in life
As you can see from the story above, people have a greater fear of failure than a wish to succeed.They are ready to live the whole life on the same way, in the way they learned them, instead of trying to change things.They have a fear that they will catch “the black fish”, and died,but they are not aware that they are already death without their dreams.Because, what is life without dreams ? Is it worth it to be lived ? Maybe it is , if you are an animal.But if you are human being, you must have dreams.And you have to give your best to make them real.
If you asking me what is the biggest risk in life. I will tell you this, it is the risk of doing nothing.You are raised on one way, according to one pattern which is roughly similar in all countries “finish school, find a decent job, work 8,9,10 hours per day, pay your taxes, get retired on time, and that is all what you need to do.”
But what about our dreams ? In that whole programmed life, when are we going to have time for our dreams.
When you’re ready to lose your life,only then you begin to live. Also, when you’re ready to lose your current way of life, you can be sure that you are ready for your dreams,because you will be free from fear.
Do not hesitate to try to make your dreams come true,even if you risk to fail,even if you risk to catch black fish,believe me, that risk is worth. Prove yourself that you think with your own head.That you are not average, that you are great. Defeat your fear because You Can Do It !!!
