The first step is in your head. So don’t think about it, buy a flight ticket tomorrow and then worry about it on the plane. This is the hardest step.
This philosophy applies to almost everything in life. We often hesitate to take that extra step, walk that extra mile, step outside our comfort zone. But taking risks is quite essential for any form of exploration – social, professional or personal. Conquring the first step is a mere change of how one thinks, and it is the only step.
