Refuse to be that person that, like so many others is still driving down the same road, years down the line, mournfully longing to go back in time to be given just one more chance to take the road that they know they should have taken because they dismissed all possible, extraordinary signs. It'll never get easier to make the leap and this is your chance, so make the change. Take the road now. - Victoria Erickson

Does this quote resonate with you? Is there a missed opportunity in your past that you regret? Was there a point in time, a small window, that you hesitated and lost? Are you still in the same place you started, driving down the same road? 

There are many reasons why people stay in the safety of their bubble, but it usually comes down to fear. If your safety net was whipped out from under you, what would you do? 

It is never easy to break long-standing patterns, familiarity feels safe. You depend more and more on the limits of your comfort zone as time goes on, which makes it even harder to think about extending your boundaries. 

"It will never get easier to make the leap and this is your chance."

"If you are mournfully longing to go back in time to be given just one more chance to take the road that you knew you should have taken," then it really is time to remedy the situation. No regrets! Face the fear and do it anyway. Fear is only temporary, regret lasts forever.

In the end, we only regret the chances we did not take.
Everything you want is on the other side of fear.
