How do you get high reward and low risk?

Every morning, and evening, I ask myself the following question in my Five Minute Journal:

How do I get a high reward and minimal risk?

“But that’s impossible?!”

No! If high risk guaranteed high reward, it wouldn’t be high risk.

So, there is a way to get high rewards with minimal risk.

But to see these opportunities, you must first ask yourself this question.

To learn more about the relationship between risk and reward, read Howard Mark’s book The Most Important Thing.

PS: A variety of this question was originally asked by Tony Robbins in Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss.
