To do something is better than to do nothing, provided you aren’t reckless. Action brings its own challenges, because when you take the action you face your fear. But facing the fear makes you wiser and courageous.
We stop ourselves from taking actions because we build such a scary picture of the outcome that no matter how much we suffer, we don’t prefer taking action. This worsen the situation and more we delay, more we are scared.
Why not to give it a try, scare yourself while taking the action and you will know that taking the action bring you immense joy, happiness and self respect.
