Everybody dreams of being financially independent. Some wake up and work on it, while others stay in the comfort of la-la-land. I have been the epitome of the second group. I have always dreamed of being on a yacht, with a drink on hand and looking far beyond. At the same time, I also am too scared to get out of my comfort zone.
I have tried to get into businesses that I believe can bring financial success. However, at the first sign of inconvenience, I retreat back to my cocoon. This has been a vicious cycle that chained me to where I am right now…. exactly the same spot where I was five years ago.
After being scared for too long, you will reach a point where your dreams become bigger than your fears. When that time comes, do not be afraid to take the first step. It may move slow, but keep on taking another step forward, then another, and then another. Before you know it, the finish line will be within your reach.
And it all starts with the first step.
