Life is not a gamble

gamble

Life is a play. Play it wisely and smartly. It is not for gambling with high hopes of success and treasure.

Life’s for living happily and it is in our own way of thinking what is happiness. Real happiness is in living a simple life and making others also feel happy with your acts. It is not in pursuing gamble and risking the very purpose of life to achieve greedy and unrealistic goals.

Life is to face problems and solve them. It is not to evade responsibilities and seek refuge from challenges. Life requires much perseverance, determination and endurance.

Know the purpose of your life, set some achievable goals and pursue them without indulging in gamble. Do not get discouraged by failures or distractions. Continue your efforts like the spider that spins a web inspite of so many falls. Success will be there waiting for you.

A senior citizen, retired accountant from the cement industry. Developed a passion for writing after retirement in 2010. Even though the writing is in his blood because of his father who has been a good writer and artist, Venkat started writing only from 2012 onwards (because of his busy workload during employment). His writings are mainly focussed on lifestyle tips, recipes, and Finance/Economics topics. Later, he started creative writing topics also at HubPages besides other online assignments. He loves art, music, reading books of different genres, expressing his views on various matters. Further, he self-published a book titled "Introduction to Economics" based on his own knowledge and experiences in a KDP book form as well as a Paperback at Amazon which is available only for $2 at this link: https://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Economics-Basic-Principles-Concepts/dp/1973207303/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1517381696&sr=1-1&keywords=Introduction+to+economics-+basic+concepts+and+principlesebook/dp/B01NBIF19C.

But don’t we all gamble with life? Just making a decision to go forward can often be a gamble. I agree that pursuing your purpose is the goal: creating happiness, sharing happiness, living in happiness…those are the things that make us human…but even that can be a gamble…to risk a lot to be happy.

I don’t think so. Pursuing something through your sincere efforts is not gambling. Gamble relates to greedy aspirations which are not achievable through normal and honest means. It is a lazy way of getting things without putting efforts. You might be betting something but it is not an effort.
