One of the primary reasons leaders do not act is FEAR.
Bryan Miles, co-founder of MAG Bookkeeping, discussed this topic in detail recently. I found his thoughts to be very interesting and very applicable to difference makers of any kind.
Here is what he says:
“Feeling great about a new idea is awesome. Dealing with the feeling of impossibility about your new idea … well, that isn’t so great. And that is where a lot of great people with great ideas get hung up and never jump (aka take the leap).
If you’ve ever balked at an idea that you felt passionate about … you won’t like what I am about to tell you.
