In our lives, it really is vital that you exercise self-command. However,
we should not be so worried about the future that people stifle today's.
The question becomes what equilibrium should we hit between self-command
and risks? What varieties of risks are appropriate or unacceptable? In this
essay, we will use two types of risks showing the distinction between
the two and reach a conclusion regarding the balance you need to have
between risk and self control. The first case in point we use is of a
person who spends his life cost savings on a lottery ticket and will not win
the lottery. The second reason is of someone who spends his life cost savings on a
hunch regarding an end to AIDS, a hunch that's false. Before we make
this distinction, however, it's important to define the conditions acceptableThere are several ways that you can define which risks are
acceptable. One could say, for instance, that the only appropriate risk is
one for which the chances of success are higher than the chances of failure.
