We're all afraid: of what might or might not happen, of what we can't
change, or what we won't be able to do, or how other people might
So it's easier to hesitate, to wait for the right moment, to decide
we need to think a little longer or do some more research or explore a
few more alternatives.
Meanwhile days, weeks, months, and even years pass us by.
And so do our dreams.
Don't let your fears hold you back. Whatever you've been planning,
whatever you've imagined, whatever you've dreamed of, get started on it
If you want to start a business, take the first step. If you want to
change careers, take the first step. If you want to expand or enter a
new market or offer new products or services, take the first step.
Put your fears aside and get started. Do something. Do anything.
Otherwise, today is gone. Once tomorrow comes, today is lost forever.
Today is the most precious asset you own--and is the one thing you should truly fear wasting.
Yeah, you're more educated.
Yeah, you're more experienced.
you've been around more blocks and climbed more mountains and slayed
That doesn't make you smarter, or better, or more insightful.
That just makes you you: unique, matchless, one of a kind, but in the end, just you.
Just like everyone else - including your employees.
Everyone is different: not better, not worse, just different.
Appreciate the differences instead of the shortcomings and you'll see
people--and yourself--in a better light.
