The spirit has a need to gamble but your being might not survive the call; place your bets anyways.

The minutes pass by, be timely now. From night until now what have you done to increase the good in the world? Put yourself out there, take a chance on yourself, take a chance on something that you want or need, take a chance on others, on love or work or a fistfight. Go where the foolhardy go. Be flung into the world with your lucky limbs and crash into the suspense. Do something out of your norm today.

Exposing your body and being to danger, harm, or loss doesn’t seem very palatable. The issue with risk is this: people tend to focus more on what might go wrong – what might be lost or sacrificed – rather than what might go right or gained. Yes, it takes courage to face some kind of uncertainty but know that most people exaggerate the harm to them and underestimate their ability to handle the consequences. Whether we succeed or fail, we get experience and knowledge after taking a risk, and in turn have a better sense of the path we should be on, and how to handle similar risks. So, what are you waiting for? Our spirit, the seat of our sentiments, desires more than some kind of plain, vanilla satisfaction or enjoyment; it wants more of life. Wager on some uncertain outcome and see if you were correct. Your confidence will grow.

 Don’t live fearfully. Don’t condition yourself to live inside a meat box. Take more risks in life.

About Hannibal

Hannibal Barca (Punic language: Between 183 and 181 BC), was a Carthaginian general, considered one of the greatest military commanders in history. His father Hamilcar Barca was the leading Carthaginian commander during the First Punic War. His younger brothers were Mago and Hasdrubal, and he was brother-in-law to Hasdrubal the Fair.

Hannibal lived during a period of great tension in the Mediterranean Basin, when the Roman Republic established its supremacy over other great powers such as ancient Carthage and the Greek kingdoms of Macedonia, Syracuse, and the Seleucid Empire. One of his most famous achievements was at the outbreak of the Second Punic War, when he marched an army which included war elephants from Iberia over the Pyrenees and the Alps into Italy. In his first few years in Italy, he won three dramatic victories—the Trebia, Lake Trasimene, and Cannae, in which he distinguished himself for his ability to determine his and his opponent’s strengths and weaknesses, and to play the battle to his strengths and the enemy’s weaknesses—and won over many allies of Rome.

Hannibal is often regarded as one of the greatest military strategists in history and one of the greatest generals of Mediterranean antiquity, together with Philip of Macedon, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Scipio Africanus. Plutarch states that Hannibal was questioned by Scipio as to who was the greatest general, and Hannibal replied either Alexander or Pyrrhus, then himself, or, according to another version of the event, Pyrrhus, Scipio, then himself.  Military historian Theodore Ayrault Dodge called Hannibal the “father of strategy”,  because his greatest enemy, Rome, came to adopt elements of his military tactics in its own strategic arsenal. This praise has earned him a strong reputation in the modern world, and he was regarded as a great strategist by Napoleon and others.

Aut inveniam viam aut faciam” (or “Aut viam inveniam aut faciam”) is Latin for “I shall either find a way or make one.”  The phrase has been attributed to Hannibal; when his generals told him it was impossible to cross the Alps by elephant, this was supposedly his response.
