One thing I’ve noticed is that stuff never happens the way you thought it would.
If you’re taking a risk and pursuing something important to you, chances are things will go wrong in ways you couldn’t have even envisioned.
The thing is that if you try and live your life as safe as possible, consciously trying to avoid any kind of danger things will go wrong anyway.
If this is the case then what excuse do you really have to not take a risk? One option will guarantee pain and failure, while the other option at least offers you a chance of something great.
