Risk taking is about living life to the fullest.

When you're hIgh in the mountains, your attention becomes so extremely focused on your purpose that you no longer notice the sore knees, the tired back, the strain of nonstop concentration, A trance-like state settles over you; the climb becomes a clear-eyed dream, Hours pass by like minutes. The routine of day-to-day existence - the unpaid bills, the lost opportunities, the dust under the sofa - all of it is forgotten, forced away from your thoughts by the absolute clarity of purpose, and by the seriousness of the task.

At such moments something like happiness actually stirs in your chest and you feel like you have the world In your hands.
