The thing that frightens people is the new experience, the fear of facing what is different for the first time. And it’s a universal fear.
Do it anyway.
But it won’t be an easy path. It takes guts to live a life that is always evolving, to live a life that willfully goes to those places that are new and unknown, and to test our limits.
Strive to live that life and to hell with the risks. If you are true to your mission you will find that the risk that it takes to remain safe and unchallenged is more painful and costly than the risk you took to grow as a human being.
