Playing it safe is a good way to protect your interests. It keeps you comfortable. It keeps you thinking you are in control.
It also limits your possibilities.
It confines you to what you know and who you are right now. It keeps you from knowing if you are capable of more.
Once in a while, you have to overstep. Erase the line. Stop seeing the box.
When you face what you are afraid of with determination, you realize that what stares back is simply a dare to experience something new. Playing it safe only gets you where you’ve been. And where you’ve been may feel safe, but you can’t grow if you don’t know.
