There is just as much risk involved in action as there is in inaction. Sometimes it is in our best interest to strike while iron is hot, and take full advantage of a window that may not always be open.
Other times our highest good requires that we be still and wait until conditions are more favorable.
The hard part is knowing the difference between the two. It’s impossible to be right every time, but the fact is that the biggest risk will always be to not take any.
Swami Vivekananda said “Take the risk. If you win you will be happy, if you lose, you will be wiser.”
In the long run, most of us would rather be filled with the knowledge that comes from multiple attempts, than the regret that comes with never having tried.
