If you want things you change, action must be taken. It doesn’t matter if things don’t work out. It doesn’t matter if you might fail. It doesn’t matter if you’ll be laughed at or ridiculed. What matters is you move in the direction of your goals.
The person who decides to participate in the race will be further ahead of the person who chooses to sit on the sidelines even if he gets last place. Taking that first step is typically the hardest because there are so many reasons for standing still but if you don’t move, you won’t go anywhere in life.
Once you’ve graduated from inaction to action, it’s time to move on to consistent action. Starting is nice, but finishing what you started is even better.
