History belongs to risk takers
Without risk takers we would not be here where we are now enjoying technology that would have been unthinkable not too long ago. I mean who could have imagined seeing photos of their grand kids, friends, and relatives in far off lands if it was not for the internet and the websites that are hosted there. We would not be enjoying television, radio, phones, refrigerators, cars, washing machines, air conditioners, trains, planes and the list goes on and on. If it was not for the brave and visionary people who took the steps to take risks and invented these things and much more, then human kind would never have been in this technological stage. And in taking risks, they made their name in history after considerable skepticism among people and societies in which they were born and lived in. I mean if all of us people do their daily work and go home and not think about improving the lives of their fellow beings where we would be if not for some few people who step outside their normal lives and took extra ordinary steps not before but also present and in the future too to make sure they are remembered in history by some name. Risk taking is as fundamental to human survival as water is and we should all be taking unknown risks not the known ones which we take everyday knowing the outcome but the ones where we don’t know the outcome.
