Pay the price now or pay the price later, either way you have to pay.
Starting a business is risky. Financial market is risky. Day trading is risky. But you know what? Life itself is risky. There is no guarantee that today is not your last. There is no guarantee that your degree will help you land your dream job. There is no guarantee that by listening in class you will get an A. There is no guarantee that you will not be fired when economy depresses. There is no guarantee that the company you work for will not go bust five years down the road and leave you on your own.
One question to leave you thinking today: Can you prove that life itself isn’t riskier than the risk of the leap of faith you are thinking of taking?
If you can’t, why not take the leap.
