If You’ve Ever Found Yourself Wondering
Whether Or Not You Should Take A Chance,
Stop Wondering And Start!
In order to be successful in something, you first have to start doing it. There is a saying that goes, “You miss every shot that you don’t take.” When you don’t act, nothing ever happens to you. Fate is not going to come along and accomplish everything for you; you need to take action. You must take that first step, try something new, and then work towards your success.
It is natural to be afraid of something new and not want to begin it, but you cannot let that fear paralyze you. “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” Everyone has experienced nerves before they started something. They were jumping into the unknown, which can be terrifying! However, this is not a good enough reason to keep yourself from trying something for the first time. Everyone does things for the first time constantly throughout their lives. It could be something small, like thinking about learning a foreign language, or it could be something much bigger, like starting your own company. Whatever it might be that you are thinking about doing for the first time, you need to take the first step towards your goal in order to achieve it.
Pablo Picasso once said, “Action is the foundational key to all success.” You cannot persevere, much less succeed, if you never try. We all want to have success in the things that we do; it’s human to want that. In order to become good at something, we need to start doing it. Even if it seems difficult, we must persevere, because in the end it will be worth it. New experiences always bring some form of reward, for they teach us about ourselves if nothing else. We get to learn and grow in new and exciting ways when we begin something new. It is exciting to find out new things about ourselves, but in order to do this we must first step away from what is familiar and take the first step down a new path. Already you will be on your way to success, just for overcoming the fear and challenges that come with beginning something new.
