'Take one's life in one's own hands' nghĩa là làm gì nguy hiểm đến tính mạng (risk being killed; to do something that is very dangerous, especially where you risk death).

Ví dụ
Every time you go parachuting you're taking your life in your hands.

Would you put your life in the hands of your Instagram followers?

I love adventure travel, so in each place there would need to be something iconic and adventure-related – like walking a chunk of the Great Wall of China, taking my life in my hands on a train ride in India or riding a bike in Siberia.

Speaking from the experience of biking hundreds of times from Madison’s east side to Centro Hispano, Urban League, Omega School, Penn Park, Genesis Center, Fountain of Life Church, Boys and Girls Club and other places on Madison’s south side, it’s not an exaggeration that you take your life in your hands every time you make your way around not particularly bike-friendly Park Street and Badger Road.
