“The biggest risk is not taking a risk at all.” – Chip
Regrets of omission long-term are always more lasting and painful than the regrets of commission. Not taking the risk of asking out your crush will weigh on your heart into old age, the “what if I had…” always there, niggling away at your mind.
“Oh, I couldn’t do that” is a cop out, a risk avoidance technique to avoid challenge and pain and growth. Choosing easy over exceptional, average over awesome because it is less scary is what dooms us to mediocrity.
Take the risk. Fly the plane and go on the adventure. Yes, there will be danger and excitement but ultimately they person you are rescuing is yourself.
