RISK is the title of the inspirational verse. I had faced, read, explained many times this word RISK in the last five years. Every time people heard this word during my seminars they were scared to hear this word and today I read this poem meaning was quite different, the approach was quite different.
As I was in the mutual fund industry 'Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risk. Please read the offer document carefully before investing' says the disclaimer in every advertisement of the mutual fund.
As last line of poem expresses that Only the person who risks is truly free. I just want to add that taking risk in investment in any asset class with calculation is makes that person financially free.
Hope I was able to connect ,if not please correct. I will be happy to correct my self.
