Safety is not a choice

Refuse to live as the one who never pursues their heart’s desires because they’re are afraid of losing. Because they are afraid of getting hurt so they always make safe choices. Desire to go after everything that makes you happy and when you achieve it, live within that moment. It hurts more to live everyday feeling like you missed your train. Feeling like you missed your flight to greatness. Hate to live with the label of the one who wallows in regret. Always wondering what your life would have been like if you hadn’t chosen to ‘be safe’. If what you pursued happens to crumble in the future, find yourself again, pick yourself up and rebuild. In the process, a better version of yourself is birthed. That is how you ought to be remembered. Live your life in such a way that when your story is being told, inspiration is what others draw from it.

Dreams are meant to be pursued, that is their sole purpose. Fears, they are meant to be conquered. And boundaries, they are meant to be pushed, that is why they are there in the first place.

By choosing to be safe, you can never tap the greatness within. By choosing not to explore it, you can never know how high you can soar.

Average is always a safe choice, it is the most dangerous choice we can make. It protects us from the risk of failure, it also separates us from future greatness~ Erwin Raphael McManus.
