Most people do more to avoid pain than they do to gain pleasure.
Take a moment to imagine yourself at 90 years old, sitting in a rocking chair, looking back at your life. You recall encountering a wall which separated yourself from the life you desired and deciding to walk in the opposite direction. You imagine what your life would have been like if you took the leap.
Come back to the present and decide between – the possibility of failure or the inevitable regret.
