Being “safe” (in business, art, life) is an illusion.
One cannot possibly expect to be safe. The only thing one can expect from oneselves is to be metasafe. Metasafe: to be able to cope with danger/ failure/ death/ _________ (all the nasty stuff the world will inevitably throw).
Once metasafe, it no longer makes sense saying “I am failing because of the world“.
Instead, the encouraging conclusion is this:
I can succeed despite the world.
