Starting something new for many people is really hard. And I must admit that this is not a notion but a reality. It is relatively easier to continue an agenda started by someone else than to start on your own. The hardest part of any endeavor is the beginning. Everyone has an opportunity to start something of their own but very few people actually take the step. This is because of the fear of uncertainty and the risk of loss.
The fear of uncertainty is the anxiety that is associated with not knowing a future outcome. Chances are things may go horribly wrong or your expectations may not be met. Also, the risk of loss has to do with the possibility of losing valuables. Looking at the stakes you may not want to venture. Unknown to many people these challenges can be overcome by one element-faith.
Faith is one of the most powerful resources in the world that is heavily underated. The faith of a man lights his path in darkness. Have that strong belief that at the end of whatever it is you choose to start is success. This is not to brush aside all the challenges associated with your endeavors but rather encourage a strong attitude in the face of these challenges.
All you have to do is start.
