You will never win if you never begin.

-Helen Rowland

"You will never win if you don't begin" is a quote that speaks to the importance of taking the first step towards achieving a goal. It reminds us that inaction will always lead to failure, but with a little bit of courage and determination, we can accomplish anything we set our minds to.

One of the biggest obstacles to achieving success is fear. It's easy to talk ourselves out of taking action, especially if we're not sure we'll be successful. We might think that we're not ready, or that we don't have the right skills or resources. But the truth is, we'll never be 100% ready. There will always be some uncertainty and unknowns, and that's okay. What's important is that we start, and that we do our best to learn and grow along the way.

Starting a business wasn't easy and continues to be challenging. But I knew that if I let fear dictate how I live my life then I wouldn't ever reach my potential. And ironically, not reaching my potential is a fear of mine as well. So instead of waiting for the perfect moment, we have to create it by taking the first step.

The next time you're faced with a goal or challenge, remember the quote "you will never win if you don't begin." Take a deep breath, gather your courage, and take that first step. You'll be surprised at how far you can go.

I'm curious to hear about the times you didn't let fear get the best of you and you started something out of your comfort zone. Share them in the comment section!
