Failure is possible.

Success is possible.

No matter what we do, there’s a chance of failure and a chance of success.

Do we want success more than we fear failure?

Do we want glory more than we fear disappointment, devastation, and heartbreak?

Is our self-belief, self-confidence, and conviction greater than our doubt?

Competitors, winners, and champions are scared.

But they’re also brave and courageous.

They face their fear.

They proceed in spite of their fear.

It’s safer not to try.

It’s easier to play it safe.

But where’s the glory in that?
