Article of Faith 1
Life is a never-ending stream of problems and opportunities. Lots of biographies will point out the one big problem the subject ran into, and this problem subsequently derailed their life. It's very important to see that there will always be another problem, and another opportunity. Getting hung up on one problem will derail life, and effectively occlude the opportunities now passing by.

The question at hand is how we reduce the risk of problems arising, while maintaining the risk of good things occurring. How we answer this question will determine much of our lives.
