My wife hates taking unfamiliar routes when driving. If she is not fully confident of the route, she simply will not drive. Fortunately, her “thing” stops with driving.

Keep doing what you have always done, and you will get the results you’ve always gotten.
Go on – do something that makes you uneasy. Something that you feel guilty for not doing. Something that you’ve always feared. Something you were always terrified to do.
Grab the mike in front of that crowd.
Try a new dish at that restaurant.
Try a new restaurant.
Ask your boss for a raise.
Tell that nasty SOB what you really think about him.
Get a better job.
Get a better life.
Propose to your girlfriend.
Say you love him.
Write the first chapter of your book.
Ask your bank if they’ll give you that loan to start your business.
Call another bank if yours won’t.
Smell the roses.
Go for a walk with your kids.
Buy a house.
Follow your dream.
If you don’t have one, make one up.
Follow that rainbow.
Even if you don’t see it – yet.
Whatever it was that you’ve always wanted to do, just go do it.
If you’ve just been waiting for someone’s permission till now, go ahead – you now have mine.
Go on, be a winner.
