If you admit it or not. Starting a business, getting married, going to a job interview, trading, driving to work, and etc... Everything has a risk, and most things have a reward. There is a statistical odds factor's which can be calculated out pretty well for nearly everything. Even taking your next breath of air is a gamble because there might be some deadly pathogen or virus you breathe in. The risk of this gamble not paying off is very small, and if the gamble isn't taken you will die... When you go to sleep you are gambling that you will wake up. There is a slight odds factor that you won't wake up and will suffocate in your sleep from sleep apnea or something. Driving on a highway is one of the riskiest gambles Americans take every day. The rewards of the gamble are that they can get to work and get a paycheck after multiple of these gambles. The odds of this gamble resulting in a wrecked car and serious injuries are actually statistically high enough that this gamble goes bad for many people during their lifetimes. If the bet is lost badly enough all ends! The marriage gamble is an interesting one. The risk/reward ratio for this gamble isn't the best. So place your chips well and confidently... Many who gamble badly here end up taking care of someone elses kids without knowing it or losing half their capital. Anyway... I just took a big breath of fresh air! That gamble felt good! I am pretty confident it won't go bad. Food for thought. All is statistical odds gambling whether you admit it or not. Realize this and try to keep the odds in your favor!
