“Throughout the centuries there were men who gave the first steps on unfamiliar roads, armed solely with a vision.” – Ayn Rand
Will you be one of those men or those women? Maybe, maybe not.
Anyway learn this: any path opened by someone else, is new to you. You can proceed with the psychological security that others have flattened it, the dangers were squashed by the pioneers, but even so, you need an extra dose of courage to venture into new worlds.
For this reason you will always be a pioneer. No matter who created the path, for you, for your experience, the path is always an adventure.
I’ll tell you another thing: Go for it. Throw yourself to it. I can assure you that you were not designed to rot before you produced your fruits. You weren’t made to give rotten fruit.
