And most of them require a significant amount of energy and guts to make a decision and put it in the act. Too many people out there are stuck in their monotonous, empty and wrong lives solely due to being too scared to risk and change try to change things to better.

They are afraid of the unknown, of failing, of ending up alone, of losing even what they got now and many more disturbing thoughts.
