There is nothing wrong with trying new things as long as it’s not triggering anxiety. If you’re trying something way out of your comfort zone. You might want to evaluate if it’s just the learning curve or if there financial risk that’s associated with it.
If you already have the foundation in place that’s one thing. If you don’t have any of the skill sets and its unfamiliar territory. Maybe its time to take a step back and not venture into this venture.
Trying new things should never cause severe anxiety attacks. If it does your not on the right track. Always listen to your inner guidance. It’s there for a reason. New things, should give you excitement or a calmness. These are internal gauges to know if your just spreading your wings a bit.
The advice from many books about, how if you don’t understand something. Don’t invest in it is a very wise one. If your going to try something out of your comfort zone, do it in baby steps. This way with each step you are building your confidence and not jumping off a cliff. There are so many ways we each can grow as a person each day. This growth can come in learning, reading or experiencing something new.
Make a list and mark it one through ten. One being easy or in your personal comfort zone. Ten being a bit of a stretch for you. The tenth one might be broken down into bite size pieces until can accomplish it with ease.
