The secret is to start walking

The secret is to start walking before you see a clear path. [...] Start walking, and as you become accustomed to walking, watch your fear of dark places disappear. Start walking because, as Newton's first law goes, objects in motion tend to stay in motion - once you get going, you will keep going. Start walking because your small steps will eventually become giant leaps. Start walking, not because it's easy, but because it's hard. Start walking because it's the only way forward.
