Is Playing it safe the most dangerous move?

by Ian Begg Marketer, Engineer

A very short, but every important message today.

When I ask people why they haven’t started their own business, their main response is…

“I just want to play it safe, right now.”

And I shake my head in disbelief every time I hear it, that's fear talking!

How can you believe working a “regular” job is safe after what happened in 2008?

How can you believe putting your security in someone else hands is safe?

How can you believe that an income that could be eliminated overnight is safe?

How can you believe that a job that a young person is willing to do for half the salary is safe?

How can you believe that a job that could be outsourced to someone oversees for one-tenth the salary is safe?

I prefer to go with Helen Keller.

Helen said…

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.

In other words, you’re just as likely to fail “playing it safe” as you are “playing it bold.”

But one offers great rewards.
One offers freedom.
One offers great wealth.
One offers adventure.
One offers pride and accomplishment beyond measure.
One offers a life of luxury.

Nobody ever achieved anything great playing it safe.


Which way will you play it?
