Risk and Reward

On April 5, 2014, in English, General | Discussion, General | Ideas, My work, by Kok mING

Often, people trying to avoid risks by giving up rewards. Think wise, by giving up rewards, it doesn’t eliminate the risk entirely. Likewise, rewards are always come with risks. How many times you want to give up?

If one doesn’t take risk, he/she can no longer grab any opportunities. He/she is waiting for opportunity to deliver reward to his/her doorstep which that almost close to zero possibilities and would need lots of luck.

There are many ways to minimize risk or manage it correctly, possibly it turn into another force of support / help to gain your more rewards. Things that contain no risk, isn’t an opportunity. Even you drink water, there are slightly risk for you to choke dead. So, risk are every where, sometimes, we ignore it because everyone is doing the same, that create an illusion that the risk is no longer exists when too many success events happened. For example, we can always say, the possibility of choke dead by drinking water is close to zero but it is never zero.

I am a risk taker and always will be!

Many people ask, why am I take risk since I’ve owned stability by doing what I am are good at. Reason is simple, I want a rewarding life. Not something can be comprehend enough by words but in term of satisfaction (could be sense of accomplishment or monetary compensation).

I do investment and trading the financial markets. Some said, I am a gambling addict by putting too much effort and money into something that I never good at. Frankly, I may have “donated” a lot into the market, that is the risks I’ve anticipated before I decide to go into this field. I tried to manage my risks, I failed. I admit failure, I keep on trying. Simply because, I believe the rewards are not far away. One does not have the view of future and focus on the short term result, is difficult to understand some rewards are earn by both time and effort you spent into it. Unlike you think you have done this and that, fulfilling this and that, then you will claim the rewards. I do not have skills nor the resources to run a multi-millions company. So I invested into multi-million company as a investor and I trade opportunities. That is how I getting closer and closer to my goals, of course, there are many paths to own a multi-millions company, different people different choices.

Another realistic example, I am being crowned with “Job Hopping King” title amongst friends. I couldn’t recall on how often I switch, why I change job, is it Money? Career Advancement? Role? Relationship? I believe there are mixed reasons behind. Having said that, on every changes, I am being rewarded better. Be it Money, Career Advancement, Role or Relationship. So, changes happen for good and that is proven by historical results of mine! Many asked me, “Given more opportunities going your way, are you willing to risk your current career and make a switch?”. Frankly, I do not have answer for nothing concrete and without the real opportunity. I don’t take risk blindly. I have to access the risks of change, rewards of making a change, after that, I can tell you an answer.

The risk and reward ratio is different for everyone. Once you found yours golden ratio, you will find yourself better in decision making too!
