Dale Carnegie, American writer and author of the celebrated novel How to Win Friends and Influence People, once said:
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
While easier said than done, it’s true that acting on our goals and dreams is what helps us grow into the people we are meant to be, people who are confident in their abilities and contributions in life.
But the space between inaction and action can be a scary place. You may want to go out and act but there’s something holding you back from taking that first step.
