I believe 100% that you need to take chances in life if you are to grow as a person or become a better person.
I know it’s easy for me to say this behind a keyboard, but get out there, apply for that college you don’t think you’ll get into, apply for that job you think you’re under qualified for, ask that person out you think you have ZERO chance with, start a business;
you may fail, but that’s how we learn, that’s how we adapt.
So get out there and do something new/take that chance. Take that leap that you felt you shouldn’t take.
You don’t know how it might turn out; it may change your life in a good way for years to come.
