Success and failure

If you try something old (or familiar, established, regular, comfortable, proven, standard) and you fail, people say you’re stupid.

If you try something old (or familiar, established, regular, comfortable, proven, standard) and you succeed, people say “Meh”. No special prize for you.

If you try something new (or unknown, reaching for the stars, unconventional, non-conforming, outside of comfort zone) and you fail, people say you’re stupid.

If you try something new (or unknown, reaching for the stars, unconventional, non-conforming, outside of comfort zone) and you succeed, people say you’re a genius.

If you’re going to be called stupid when you fail, why not venture into new territory and be a genius when you succeed?
