Do you ever start doing something on a much bigger scale than you’re used to and you instantly start to panic because you have no idea how you’re going to go about it? I do this very often because I’m constantly trying to do bigger and better but, sometimes, it isn’t as easy as I’d like it to be. There’s always the fear of messing up something halfway through because it means having to start all over again and it annoys me more than it scares me, to be honest. I wouldn’t want to spend hours working on something only to realize that I made a mess out of it and that I’ll have to begin again. So, it’s a pleasant surprise when I actually end up doing a decent job of it. Because, in the end, it’s exactly what it seems like— a bigger version of what you have already achieved. Think of it as following your blueprint to the tee. You already know where to begin and you know the steps you need to follow. I know it’s easier said than done because I go through this way more often than I can tell, and it makes me wonder why I worry so much in the first place. Then again, I think that it’s a little healthy to be slightly nervous about taking on projects bigger than you’re used to because it shows that you want it to be successful; it’s a sign that you really are committed to what you’re doing. It’s never the easiest thing for any of us to be stepping out of our comfort zone. And as much as I would like to say that opportunities could just walk up to us, the truth is that they don’t really happen unless we’re ready to put ourselves out there to seek something better. And, sure, the fear of starting over from the bottom seems like the worst thing ever, but is it really as bad as never knowing why we aren’t making any progress? I guess we’ll never know unless we keep trying to get better. It’s nowhere near easy but it’s always worth a try.
