I have always taken this particular quote as a reference to a person’s fear of failure. Walking our life path is never easy and is filled with obstacles. (it’s filled with a lot of good things too). Sometimes we need to do something and just don’t know where to start. It feels overwhelming, so we put it off and hope it will go away. The thing is that it never does. The key is to take that first step, even if it’s a baby step. The first step is always the most difficult because it requires us to acknowledge our fears. By taking that first step we are inviting new doors to open, which lead to a second step and then third. Before you know it you have tackled this “journey” and discovered that it wasn’t so bad after all. You’ve totally got this!
