There is no safe mode. You think you are playing it safe. You tell yourself that to fully commit to a path is too risky. So instead you take the safe route. You play it safe. The problem?
Well the greater risk is that you never achieve what you ultimately want to do. You never achieve what you could do, what you are destined to do. The great achievement of your life could hang in the balance!
So what is more risky? Putting off and delaying your destiny or playing it safe for a little while longer?
