There’s No Gain Without Risk

There’s No Gain Without Risk

“To try is to risk failure. But risk must be taken because the

greatest hazard of life is risk nothing. The person who risks

nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may

avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot

 learn, feel, change, grow, live and love.”

Leo Bucaglia 1924 - 1998, Self-Help Author, Motivational

Speaker, Forward Thinker



As I see it. . . . . . . .

There’s no gain without risk


Every opportunity has an element of risk attached to it . . . . and element for gain.


Risk has to be evaluated not by the element of fear . . . . but in the possibility of success.


Be willing to take a calculated risk . . . . to open the doors of opportunity that will move you in the direction of successfully achieving your goals.


Your biggest risk in life comes in not in trying . . . . but in procrastination and in taking no action.


Avoiding risks may keep you in your comfort zone . . . . but that comfort zone will continue to shrink . . . . and opportunities will be missed.


Everything in life has elements of risk; unless you venture out of your comfort zone and risk failure no progress will be made.


Moving out of your comfort zone . . . . and taking calculated risks opens the doors to personal growth . . . .  learning . . . .  becoming a stronger person . . . .  unlimited opportunity . . . . and success.


There’s no gain without risk . . . . and you will continue to walk the same path that you have been on . . . . experiencing the same results that you have been getting. Broaden your view and expand your horizon for greater success and achievement.

Hi Lou, 

Every definition of the word "risk" has something negatively associated with it. Yet there is no reward with out it.

Lou, I've always lived by no risk, no reward. I think a lot of people associate risk as a bad thing but, it's a must in order to grow.

I am lucky to have a practical wife who does not like risks as much as certainty. One the other hand I live for pusing the envelope but one always needs a counterbalance.

They say no pain, no gain, but it often takes risks for one to gain the most, but make sure you don't lose, haha.

I was just having a conversation with a friend the other day about standing still and waiting for change rather than taking the risk and making a change.
