Don’t be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated.  You can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps.

Is it better to take any step and have a possibility of failing?  Or is it better to stay in one place and never take a risk?  Me?  I’d rather take that one step.  I decided a log time ago that I wasn’t going to wake up one morning, look back at my life and say:
Shoulda!  Woulda!  Coulda!

It’s more important for me to take a risk.  If there’s a step to take and I’m not quite sure where I’ll land, I’d rather take any step then stand still.  You might not land exactly where you planned, but at least you’ll end up somewhere different.  Who knows it might even wind up being a place you were supposed to be anyway.  You may have simply arrived sooner.  I don’t want to stand still.  Do you?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to Everyone.
