Must we take risks in order to achieve happiness? Must we take risks in order to achieve happiness?


If you are asking about the book, I think that Ponyboy did have to take risks to achieve happiness.  He had to do something risky when he became more friendly with Cherry and Randy, for example.  He had to risk failure and being laughed at when he decided to write his story for his English theme.  Going forward, he will have to risk losing his friends if he goes to college and becomes successful.

I think that we also generally have to take some risks to be happy.  You have to risk (for example) rejection and pain in order to find love.  You have to risk having problems with your kids in order to experience the joy of watching them grow.  You have to risk failing if you are to do anything that is really creative and different in your job.
