ABSTRACT
The article discusses risk takings and rewards. Taking big risks would lead to big rewards and benefits while small risks lead result to small rewards and benefits. If the risks taken resulted to small reward, there is a need to re-evaluate the options. Larger rewards and more confidence depend on the willingness to take risks while taking smaller risks would build up to taking larger risks. Successful people who are satisfied with their careers are the ones who are willing to take risks.
