-possible excuses for putting off responsibility?

If I Start...

...what if i fail
i'm not good enough
it's too hard after all
i'll not be understood
it will turn out wrong

i'll be committed
i can't finish it
i'll take the wrong turn
open the other door
can i go back
will i be alone

i'll make mistakes
i'll die if i'm laughed at
i might be found out
i'm not good enough

i won't make it - that's it
after i start
or what if i win the jackpot

Which which is which
...if i start?

Yes! It is better to get off to a start, than to sit back and wonder what if....

You will not fail your will finish things by surprising yourself. The wrong turn can be turned around to better turnings, You can always go back and fix your mistakes somehow. Noone laughs at you, they laugh with you, did you not know this? You are good enough in God's sight for whatever means you do things. If you win the jackpot you will be so happy and shout it out. Could you start right now to be positive?

Fears must be overcome through participation. Nothing comes of nothing.

Go on...just start.
take out your pen and open your heart.
Let your mind go and catch its views
Then write it down and post it in "News"
