Is Starting Over Worth It?

It’s hard to start over from scratch. It’s hard to go into the unknown when you have everything against you.

It’s hard, it really is.

It’s one of those decisions in life where it could change the outcome — good or bad. And what’s worse is that you don’t know until you do it.

I’ve taken many risks in my life and the outcomes have been good and bad but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t take risks.

Successful people take risks all the time. They built large companies and changed the world by taking risks. They didn’t listen to the naysayers when they said that they wouldn’t succeed.

They didn’t want to be comfortable because it wouldn’t have got them anywhere.

We only get one life but that doesn’t mean we have one shot at everything. We have a long road ahead of us so why shouldn’t we take different paths?

It wouldn’t hurt to try especially if it means leading a better life and doing something that will make us happy.
