The first step. Sometimes that’s all it takes; sometimes it doesn’t make an inkling of a difference. Either way, one thing’s certain—you’ll never know until you take it! If you do, and get nowhere, at the very least you know that you did not let the chance go by.
The thing is, people do not like to take chances; they’re afraid of change, and of failure. When that happens, I reckon the best thing to do is ask yourself “what’s the worst that can happen?” If the answer doesn’t look too grim, go ahead and take that chance. You may not be able to figure out what all strange new possibilities arise due to that one small step!
