“Normal is expensive.” – Hugh MacLeod
You can be safe, and comfortably normal. You can avoid risk and live in a cozy, prevention mindset – focused on not losing rather than sticking your neck out and trying to win, to move far beyond mediocrity.
But choosing normal, choosing comfort and safety over more radical ideas that involve risk, is a costly choice. You give up the notion of an incredible life. You give up living on your unique terms. You give up the joy of uncommon achievement. And you become stuck watching someone else’s life on reality TV instead of creating your own wonderful reality.
