The phrase "get the ball rolling" is much deeper than you'd initially think it to be. It refers to movement, momentum, action. See, you can talk about what you're going to do, your plans, your dreams, etc., but without movement your metaphorical ball will never move. You will never get anywhere in life by simply thinking about it. Even the law of attraction requires movement on your dreams. Most people aren't afraid of taking action. Their afraid of taking action with the possibility of failing. They waste years of their life in fear of wasting years of their life. Stop over thinking and start doing. Remember that a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. Start moving.
