Ever made plans to strike out in a new direction? Maybe get a better education, a different career, or life in some far away place where life seems to come alive. You've researched the possibilities, made your plans and told your family.
Then just after beginning your quest, you realized this wasn't for you. Embarrassment sets in and now you aren't sure what to do. After all, you already told everyone about your plans and now what would they think of you for changing directions in midstream?
John Greenleaf Whittier wrote, "For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: It might have been!" The message? Take a risk! Strike out if that is your desire. Give it a try! Don't be afraid! In other words, don't let fear rob you of the opportunity to learn what "might have been."
Better to take the chance and have no regrets, than to fear giving it a try. If you later find, that the new direction is not right for you, try looking, as Dorothy in The Wizard Of Oz did, in your own backyard! Very often, everything you need to be totally fulfilled already existed before you started.
All The Best,
