Playing it safe means staying in the shadows.
Laziness is allowing yourself to rely on excuses of contentment.
Humans are built to challenge themselves. We are designed to grow because of the skills we refine, the courage we gain, and the experience we turn into knowledge.
We sometimes forget this. The feeling of security is emblazoned in our DNA from our ancestors. Seek it out and once you have it keep it because it signifies that you have survived.
Do you want to just survive? Survival is maintenance. Risks turns into adventures that turn into experiences that push your life in directions even you could never determine.
Stick with the Navy SEALS saying, "The only easy day was yesterday."
