Try new things: Overcome the fear (i.e., fear of failure, rejection, or pain)! When you're learning or doing a new sport or hobby, you don't think about what's bothering you. Last year, I tried snow skiing for the first time, and now I am hooked! Believe me, when I let one of my daughters (who had taken lessons) talk me into going down a "blue" hill on my first day, I wasn't thinking about my "problems" while I was tumbling down half the mountain! My daughter later told the whole family how she had never seen anyone fall the way Daddy did.

All things are possible until they are proved impossible and even the impossible may only be so, as of now.-Pearl S. Buck
Each of us has much more hidden inside us than we have had a chance to explore. Unless we create an environment that enables us to discover the limits of our potential, we will never know what we have inside of us.-Muhammad Yunus

Better a Has-been than a Never-was. But better a Never-was than a Never-tried-to-be.-Anonymous
When the world says, "Give up," Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."- Author Unknown
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer.
