Is Life A Gamble?

Is Life A Gamble?

Demon playing cards

Gamblers beware! Is Life a Gamble?

What ‘hand’ were you dealt?

Do you know how to play the game?

What are the rules?

Who is the dealer?

Who is the banker?

How much do you have in your kitty?


In the game of life these are the questions that you have to ask yourself from the very beginning, although in reality as a baby you do not have the choice.

Do we get an even chance at birth or is it destiny from the beginning depending on your ancestors? Because if your parents were not knowledgeable for whatever reason it stands to reason that they would be at the behest of the informed.

Well, where are you in life and what can you do about it?

I might add; not only for yourself but if you have any or are planning for your offspring!

Gambling is the wagering of money or something of value (referred to as “the stakes”) on an event with an uncertain outcome with the primary intent of winning additional money and/or material goods. Gambling thus requires three elements be present: consideration, chance and prize. The outcome of the wager is often immediate, such as a single roll of dice or a spin of a roulette wheel, but longer time frames are also common, allowing wagers on the outcome of a future sports contest or even business success. (Wikipedia)

In this modern-day and age the common denominator is ‘Trade’, we all do it!

So what do you have that others want? Is the question which you have to find an answer to; as you should know your purpose in life by now?

Furthermore can anything be done to change your circumstances from being dependant on your inherited social status, to being fully independent?

I am sure by now you are expecting us to give you answers; but that is not our remit it’s yours, if you want to change?

In this day and age the majority live from credit whether you are in debt personally or your government is borrowing so as to tax your labour just to pay back the loan.

Many of us are paying back the debt of our ancestors and are born in usury and under this practice it stands to reason that the rich will get richer and those in debts will forever be paying back.

One of the ways people change their circumstances is to borrow and invest so as to increase their earnings and assets.

Another is to produce something that is unique and in-demand, so much so that it has an unlimited earning potential.

The option that most poor people take is to gamble on the lottery even though your chances of winning are very slim.

Whichever option you take is going to be a gamble, although some are more lucrative than others with varying amounts of risk and time factors.

When we gamble we look at the prize and then the cost; then depending on our desires and circumstances we evaluate our chances of achieving a result as quickly as possible.

As far as I am concerned I like to look at the ‘playing-field’ to see if it is something that I am comfortable with and would I enjoy the process as well as the benefits.

If so; I am not bothered whether I win or lose because I enjoyed it.

Studies done by Associate Professor Natasha Schull in MIT’s Program in Science, Technology and Society (STS) found that people have many different motivations for gambling…

One subject ‘Mollie’, a mother and hotel worker who compulsively gambled; exhausting her pay cheque in regular two-day binges, even cashing in her life insurance to get more funds to feed the habit, told Professor Schull  “The thing people never understand is that I’m not playing to win”. Mollie just wanted to immerse herself in the ‘Machine Zone’ where nothing else matters.

This is to say; we should not gamble to feed ourselves or family because the risks outweigh the need of a regular income, but you can see that to most of us; life is a gamble which has its rewards, we discussed this in our Post: “Why take the risk?”

Based on this way of thinking, we are prepared to take a gamble with our knowledge and experience to gain the benefits of a change in lifestyle, as long as it is not addictive or fatal.

At Finance Magnate UK we help you to evaluate your situation and reduce the risks of failure by supporting you with whichever resources you require at the time when you require it; to secure and establish your investment in you…

We help you to build the foundations that will make your investment grow and provide a shelter, security and a constant income stream for the future. This is done by eliminating the fear of the unknown in business, management and marketing; by creating the platform for you to deliver your goods and services.

Firstly you must have the commitment and desire to help yourself!

Without the will you cannot achieve anything for your offspring or yourself for that matter.

But by using the skills, assets and time available to you, it is possible to start changing your circumstances.

No one is going to take a gamble if they feel it is too risky…

Some of our frequently asked questions are:

Q) What if I don’t make enough to live on?

A) We help you to build your business on what you are doing already, without giving up your job until you want to spend all your time doing what you love.

Q) What if I have never done business before?

A) You already take care of your business everyday by surviving in this 21st century, but we have the facilities and resources to help you where/when you need it.

Q) What if I don’t have the time to spare?

A) Who do you give your time to and at what cost; we will show you how to find time to invest in yourself.

Q) What if I cannot afford it?

A) We show you how to utilize the resources you have already plus many free tools, which will enable you to gradually build your online presence.

Q) What if I don’t have a niche or idea that the public wants?

A) We will match your skills to the relevant niche with our expert marketing tools and experience.

Q) Why should we trust your organization?

A) Because all we are doing is supporting you in the areas that you require and consent to. (Many of them are Free!)

These are just some of the obstacles we create for ourselves before we will even take the gamble.

I look at it this way; there is a river that I want to cross and it is very deep and turbulent in some sections (Gamble), so first I look at the materials/resources that I have available and shallowest path to make the crossing.

At Finance magnate UK, we do not have a speed boat; but we do have a canoe in which we can row across, if we are willing to work in tandem and reap the rewards and fulfilment of completing the task together. (Forgive the analogy if you are afraid of water :))

We guarantee that you will gain from the experience.
