Making the first steps onto a new path are always the scariest.
The path is unknown, the consequences are unknown, and the outcomes are unknown.
That must not stop us from taking those first few steps. With each new step, the path becomes less treacherous, more familiar, and soon we gain confidence.
All great work starts with with one step onto an unknown path. The road traveled by many yields no new insights, no new secrets.
It is only when we have the courage to step outside the well-trodden path that we find treasures no one else found. When we explore new territory, we become rich in experience and knowledge.
Don’t deny the world your courage, for it is in that courage that you spark the hearts and minds of those around you, and that is where real change lies.
Do the great work, the hard work, the important work, for it is in the unknown that we truly get to know ourselves.
