Life is full of risk and everybody does take risk even though some people fail to notice that they often do it unknowingly. Taking risk isn't only about a certain stipulated time when you get faced with making a decision for that particular moment, no, risk is literally an everyday life option.
During the west African Ebola outbreak in 2013-2016 which led to a widespread of highly infectious and acutely lethal viral disease, hundreds of people were afflicted. It was later gathered that the widespread was made possible through physical contact and consumption of wild animals which were primarily the carriers of the deadly disease. This reference is aimed at giving you an instance on how we take risk everyday without even knowing or thinking about it.
Most Africans consume bush meat which is a form of dried animal meat caught and slaughtered from the wild. In most cases, you can buy them from hawkers by the road side. And at hangouts, they get served with drinks for leisure. Now, the majority of people who consume these meat do not have any idea where it came from, or the condition of the animal before it was caught and even the hygiene of those serving the meat for your consumption. Some do not even know what type of animal it was. After the outbreak, people then began to realize how much risk they were taking by eating meat from unknown sources.
Drawing from the above, this same act of neglegience can be associated with other daily activities we engage in. Hence, risk is something that is present in almost every part of our daily lives. So the question shouldn't be whether am willing to take risk in accomplishing something. It should be how much more risk am I willing to take in order to get accomplished?
