If you expect to move yourself forward in your career, relationships, education, etc. but you’re not willing to take a risk, be prepared to go nowhere.
You will never be loved if you never open yourself to the possibility of rejection. You will never launch a successful product if you’re not prepared to risk launching a failing product.
The path of least resistance offers the least reward.
You know this, right? But when did you last take a risk?
You will never be anything if you aren’t willing to fail. And trying doesn’t count if you’ve ventured nothing.
