This is a reminder that you need to grab opportunities. NEED. So many grand stories start that way:
Henry Rollins was a big fan of punk rock, attending shows and feeling the environment but still working a simple 9-5 job. While at a performance, one of his favorite bands, Black Flag, asked him to be their vocalist for the night. He seized the opportunity and played the show. Shortly after, he was offered the position to be their full-time vocalist. That is a crazy story, so fantastic. If he had gotten embarrassed or said something like "I'm too stressed...boo hoo" then he would have stayed that way, only wandering what would have happened if he got on stage.
So give this a thought and go for it!
