Don’t be stopped by the possibility that something can go wrong. Something can always go wrong, and you can always deal with it.
Take good precautions, plan well, prepare for the likely eventualities. Then go ahead, take action.
You can imagine all sorts of negative scenarios, most of which will never happen. It’s good to be aware of what could happen, of problems that could arise, but don’t let that awareness stop you from moving ahead.
You can’t be guaranteed of a smooth path or a perfect outcome. What you can do is your best, with a commitment to your purpose, with confidence in your ability.
Yes, there will be difficulties. Yes, you can succeed anyway.
Step forward now, aware of the possible problems and ready to work through whatever comes. You have great things to do.
