Take the Bull by the Horns

Take the Bull by the Horns

Julie had always felt that she was missing out on a lot of fun because of her clumsiness on the dance floor. She had been putting off taking lessons, but she finally took the bull by the horns and went to a professional dance studio for help. She was tired of feeling left out and acted decisively to correct the situation.

Take the bull by the horns = (take decisive action in a difficult situation)

I think take the bull by the horns mean to take actions with certainty.
