If you don't risk anything in life, you'll never reap the rewards of being a master at life.
Go for it.
In fact, go for it a lot. Yeah, you won't always win. Won't always achieve your objective.
But you damn sure won't if you never try.
You simply can't get ahead and you won't ever be the best you can be without taking a chance.
Yeah, it's that 'life is too short' thing. Because you know, it really is.
Bet it all. Be your best. Risk it to make the reward that much sweeter.
