I hesitate, and it's killing my dreams. You do it too. When I stop for that split second before a morning run, or before starting that paper I need to do, my brain recognizes the struggle that's about to happen. It tries everything in its power to keep me from that struggle cause that's it's job, to keep me alive and out of pain. The more I hesitate, the bigger the problem appears and the more I want to back out. One thing leads to another and I end up bailing on what I had set out to do. Risk avoided...but...nothing gained either.
Growth only happens through pain and hard work. Take the leap before you back out. You may not get another chance.
