Why are we so scared of taking risks?
What makes us so fearful?

What if we could simply turn risks into opportunities,
and just listen to their messages?

Don't be afraid of change.

Replace the fear with imagination that will make you foresee the future.

Engage with friends, create bonds that connect the world,

build wisdom that will protect us, and sustain a beautiful future we can’t yet see.
