Whatever you do in life, the first step is always the hardest way to go, the most difficult of any step to take, and it will take the most effort to accomplish. Why? Because that first step will set you down a path that you might not understand, and you certainly can’t predict. No matter how much you plan, how much you prepare, that first step is going to take you in a direction that you may or may not be ready for, and it will broaden your horizons in a way that you never expected.
It just takes that first step to be off and moving towards a life that you might want, or at the very least, an experience that will help you to grow in one way or another.
Fear will happen, and it’s quite natural.
There’s nothing wrong with being afraid of something new. There’s no point in trying to not be afraid of a new experience in life. But it’s important that the fear not be allowed to rule your decision to take that first step towards something that could help define the direction you’ll take from that moment forward.
Fear is nothing new, but it’s a cloak waiting to be shed so that you can feel the winds of change as they welcome you into their embrace.
