Because you’re “scared”
Now I understand how fear can keep you immobile. There have been a few things that I regret in life because I let my fear dictate my next moves. Well, no more!
I’m not going to skydive anytime soon, but if there’s something that I’m well capable of doing, I’m not going to just sit back in the sideline because I’m afraid, and you shouldn’t either. Apply to that college, ask for that raise, get that recommendation!
