The Uncertainty

The real risk in life is the risk of inaction.

Ironically, the riskiest thing a person can do is to play it safe.

“If you do what everyone else is doing, you will get what everyone else has.”

We are living in an unpredictable future, where it’s impossible to play safe and thrive.

You can choose to postpone the act of taking risks, but at some point in life, you cannot avoid pushing the boundaries.

It’s easy to get intimidated by the uncertainty of the unknown.

It’s easy to stick with what you know because you are sure that you wouldn’t go wrong. 

It won’t scare you.

It won’t hurt you.

It won’t make you look bad if you fail.

But if you never fail and you’re never scared, you might not give yourself a chance to grow. 

You think you know yourself, but you only really know what you’ve always known.

When you start trying new things, you’ll discover the reason you get out of bed each morning.

You’ll learn what you want from your precious life.

You’ll learn what makes you tick. 

You’ll learn what you wish you could change. 

You’ll no longer be afraid of the unknown anymore.
