I would risk everything. I have risked already by going off the beaten path and it turned out to be way better than I had expected. Was the choice easy? Absolutely not; but realising that I was already naked and that there is no quaranteed safe road helped me go after my dream.

In pursuit of a course, one has to sacrifice another. Infact, each and everyday we have to way options and pick the one that fits our needs and desires. Sometimes it's not easy to forgo one thing for another. It some times causes pain even as one take decisions. Difficult decisions for that matter. Personally, if the course is worthy dying for, I would.

Yes I have, it depends on if it is worth it. When it becomes risky not to risk it all. Sometimes your life depends upon those risks, it becomes a risk reversal situation. Especially when the risk promises safety and is salvation. But for lesser values and greater matter, I will not risk.

I don't think its necessary to risk everything. Money is not the answer to everything.

My driving force has always been my ambition. In my opinion, some things are built over time and because of that, they become valuable. As i will not give my time to anything unless it is part of my drive. Now for the case of a fiancee, considering the time i took to nurture the relationship, if this new opportunity is not in line with it, then its not worth pursuing it.

It all depends on the situation, but in some cases, yes, I think I would.

I have never been in such a situation, and most probably I will not like to be in that position either.

However materialistic elements aside, if a relation is at risk of being lost, then it is not worth preserving altogether. Even if everything is on the line and eventually lost, relationships should prevail, that is where it becomes different from materialistic pleasures.

I wouldn't risk everything for what I have. If you have the support of your loved one then its easier but if it's for personal gain, no.

Despite the opportunity and how promising it could be, I would not give up everything just to pursue it. Unless of course it benefits my soul. In that case, I would give every other thing up just to save my soul. For anything physically speaking it's a No.

I may risk some things but not everything. There are things which success, money or power can not buy like my family.

If in any case I have to, two key factors have to chip in; courage and the final result.

It honestly would depend on the situation and if I feel it is a good or bad idea. Being a Christian, I would have to pray about any difficult situation and see what God tells me.

No, but it depends on situation. Sometimes gain is much bigger and precious than what you lose.in this case I would prefer to take risk.but not for common reasons.
Make your ideals high enough to inspire you and low enough to encourage you.
