In order for people to be successful in life, they must take risks. Although some risks might be hazardous, they are very important to reach accomplishments. Many people would rather live a safe life, and refrain from taking a risk with an unknown outcome. But, the results of risks can change someone’s future, and even impact the world.
The outcome of a risk doesn’t have to affect a group of people, it can just have an influence on an individual’s life. One case of risk-taking is investing in the stock market. A person takes a chance by investing large sums of money in companies that they think will do well. Sometimes this risk can end badly but other times it can be extremely helpful and earn someone a lot of money. This risk only affects one person, unlike the risky chance Steve Jobs made when creating his company, Apple, Inc.
Steve Jobs is a great example of risk taking. He dropped out of college after just one semester, which led to the creation of the first Apple computer. At age 25, Jobs’ net worth was over $200 million. This risk led to what the world knows now as Apple, Inc., a very successful technology company. This risk changed the technology world forever.
Taking chances is important for people to be successful and for the world to make progress. The outcome of a risk may be unknown and even hazardous, but it can greatly impact people across the globe in a positive way.
