Risk Vs. Reward

Life is ultimately a game of risk vs. reward, isn't it? You take risks, sometimes good and sometimes bad and hope that the reward allows you to either continue taking the risk or pays off in some spectacular way. Sometimes the risks fail and smack you dead in the face, no reward for you. But, if you're made of stronger stuff – you pick yourself up out of the failure pile, dust off your shoulders and try again. After all, there are rewards to be had.
