Being passive can lead to being tentative. An analogy for this would be laying up on a par 5. What you want to do is choose a conservative club and swing aggressively instead swinging conservatively with an aggressive club.
When it comes to your game, play aggressive, but within your capabilities. Choose your spots when you can attack and know when to ease back and play conservative. What that means is attack when you have a wedge in your hand or you're confident you can hit a good shot. Be conservative when you have a more difficult shot so you guarantee you make no more than a bogey.
