“A journey of a thousand miles starts with that first step. if you look ahead to the end, and all the weary miles between, with all the dangers you might face, you might never take that first step. And whatever it is you want to achieve in your life, if you don’t make the effort. You won’t reach your goal. So take the first step.”- Sir Richard Branson

When it comes to success, the first step is very important. If you have the courage to take the first step, success is yours. The first step is always scary to take. But if you can take it, you can win. Don’t let it stop you from going after your dreams. People don’t take the first step because they don’t want to fail. They don’t want to fall. They don’t want to fail. They don’t want to look stupid. They don’t want to look weak. People don’t take the first step because they don’t want other people to blame them.

It doesn’t matter what you want to achieve in your life. To achieve it, you must take the first step. The baby step. The scary step. The weak step. You must take it to grow yourself. It is scary, but you can do it. You can change yourself. You can transform yourself, your life. So just take the first step. And you will succeed.

If You Want To Grow, You Must Do What You Are Scared Of Doing

Before you tell yourself what you can do, before you tell yourself what you can’t do, try it. Don’t just walk away. Don’t just give it up. Because you don’t even know what you can do. We think we know what we are good at, but we don’t.

When you are asked to do something, to learn something, don’t just say, “I can’t do it.” Because you don’t even know anything about what you are rejecting. The best thing to do is to think about it, study it. Don’t be scared. You can it. You can do it if you face it.

Yes, you can do it if you face it. Sometimes what we think we are not good at is really what we can do really well. Whatever it is that is chasing you, you must embrace it. Don’t ignore your opportunity to move to the next level. The things you don’t want to do are the things that can change your life. Why not do them?

Your life depends upon what you are doing right now. If you want to live a better life, a happier life, you must do what you are scared of doing. Do you have the courage to do it?
