Their highest value appears to be avoiding confrontation, or the slightest possibility of controversy.  In Oz, they call this the tall poppy syndrome, based on the philosophy that the tallest flowers are the ones that get cut first.  So millions go through their lives, intent on keeping their heads below the cubicle.

They lose sales because they are afraid someone will tell them ‘no.’  They squander the chance at prosperity because they’re afraid to fail.  And they miss a chance at love, for fear of being rejected.

Yes, ships are safe in the harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.

What risk should you be taking, right now?
