“take risks in life”: an analysis of the quote

so, a cliche quote. Of course it has its merits. People often overestimate the costs of failure – the cost of failure is often unpleasant, but can result in intense self-development.

But, there are *some* times that the quote doesn’t apply. because the people who succeeded while taking *real* risks – are the only people who end up giving such advice. so they’re an unrepresentative sample. But we must also realize, that, of course, the people who failed might end up in another field and give the same advice, too => in a sense, almost everyone could succeed and still give that advice.
