You Wanna Be Starting Something

I read somewhere recently that  “you will never know if you can walk on water till you step out of the boat”. I find that quote inspiring , and this picture below, which I saw on two friends DP this morning got me thinking about how things always seem so difficult or even  outright impossible when we are looking at it from a certain perspective.

Growing up I was one of those perfect grade kids, I did pretty well at school if I dare say so myself. No! I am not talking like most parents who lie about being tops in class just to encourage their kids to do well at school ( I have my results from kindergarten till Uni as evidence to show my kids!) Despite being a good student,I was always nervous about new subjects and classes.With each  move from one class or grade to the next, I would wonder if I was ever going to understand the new stuff we would have to learn. However, once we settled in, it just became a walk in the park. 
I know my childhood fear of little uncertainties is nothing compared to the stark reality we have to deal with each day, but it does kinda explain how the unknown always unnerves us no matter how little or insignificant it may seem to others. What we have to realize is that you will never know unless you try, you will not know success if you do not take a plunge, try something new, or do something old in a new way.
