Avoiding risks will prevent further development of your mental and physical abilities.
First and most importantly you have to practice the necessary technical skills based on your mental and physical capabilities.
By doing so you not only learn your limits, but at the same time can analyze the risks of what you are doing now or in the future.
Then you will be able to jump off cliffs as I do, or simply walk away, because you know when something is too dangerous for you.
…even the smallest steps are important in pursuit of a certain goal, as they will make you grow.
I am afraid of heights and therefore I only concentrate on what I have control over: safety measures and my technique.
By doing so and blocking out all the bad things which could happen, my brain responds with positive reinforcement.
