Quote on risk and resilience 

 quote from “The Start-up of You: Adapt to the Future, Invest in Yourself, and Transform Your Career” by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha –

“Pretending you can avoid risk causes you to miss opportunities that can change your life. It also lulls you into a dangerously fragile life pattern, leaving you exposed to a huge blow-up in the future. What’s more, you can never perfectly anticipate when inflection points or any other career-threatening event will occur. When you’re resilient, you can play for big opportunities with less worry about the possible consequences of unanticipated hiccups. For the start-up of you, the only long-term answer to risk is resilience. Remember: If you don’t find risk, risk will find you.”
