I believe that what Les Brown was saying is that if you have it in your mind that you are going to takerepparttar next step, don't wait for all things to be perfectly lined up, get out there and take that next step now!

When you stop to consider it, you and I are never really ready forrepparttar 124117 next step. We can always find reasons to put off takingrepparttar 124118 next step, or makingrepparttar 124119 next move. We are experts at procrastination!

The reality is that opportunity will only pass you by once. I procrastinated. I wasn't totally "ready" to take onrepparttar 124120 second floor of my building. Now, that opportunity has come and gone and it will cost me much more to move my entire organization to a new location in order to keep up with our rapid expansion.

It's sometimes a little daunting to make a move without really knowing what to expect on repparttar 124121 other side, but listen to this. All growth happens inrepparttar 124122 unknown!

It's not our place to know what's next. It is our place to stand up and be ready for that next step, wherever it may lead us. And, from what I have experienced in my life, it's exciting to see what happens!

It's interesting to note is that when you do make your move, things happen! For instance, had I moved intorepparttar 124123 second floor office, I would have seen an even faster increase inrepparttar 124124 size of my business. It's simply a matter of being brave, getting out of our comfort zones, and taking action onrepparttar 124125 things we already know will move us to where we want to be.

So, instead of fearingrepparttar 124126 unknown, be curious about it. Approach it with positive expectation and be ready to be surprised, thrilled, excited, and moved!

After all, life is an adventure and adventures are most fun when we show up excited, right? This is your life... and what you do with it is entirely up to you. Choose well.

1) Because they don't want to tackle modifying all pages on their site. And they are unwilling to deal withrepparttar uncertainty ofrepparttar 124116 impact onrepparttar 124117 overall site.

2) They simply refuse to change their convictions. Such a move is painful to many, and thus to be avoided at all costs.

3) If something as fundamental as this to a website has been demonstrated as "wrong," there's lots to be reconsidered. This leads to: "What else do I think I know that's wrong?"

The moment one comes to this last question, there is fear, and lots of uncertainty. Some will go to any lengths to avoid this state. They are simply unwilling to reexamine all other elements of their site and business and thus threaten their view of "rightness."

Stagnation Follows

The wise move in this hypothetical case is to come off your long held view of a navigation bar torepparttar 124118 left, and put it acrossrepparttar 124119 top. Just swallow hard, take a deep breath, and do it. At most you are risking time and a few sales. If you keep your previous pages, they can easily be restored if a major negative unexpectedly crops up.

To do otherwise, is to cling to what you have. Which is stagnation. And ultimately decline.

It's Easier Said Than Done

It may be that business people fear change more than others do. Face it. They have their necks out and their capital is onrepparttar 124120 line. Their net is generally their entire income. Make a blunder, and their family, home, and lifestyle may be suddenly at risk.

"If it ain't busted, don't fix it," is a commonly heard refrain. While likely so about many things, it's certainly not true of all. There is risk in change. Unavoidable risk. But without it, there will be no growth.

Put Fear To Work For You

Let fear urge caution as it must. And listen attentively. But let curiosity and creativity dominate. Let these powerful tools feed you new ideas. Explore all encountered. Then lock in those that work for you. Growth is impossible without this or an equivalent mindset.
