Most of us don’t try to reach our goals because we are afraid of failure. You are afraid that if you try out, you won’t make the team. But you aren’t on the team right now. You are afraid to start a new business because it might fail. But you don’t have a business right now. You are afraid to make a friend because maybe they won’t like you. But you don’t have that friend right now. You are already living what you imagine is “failure”. Team-less, business-less, friend-less. Maybe you’ll try and end up right back where you started. So what? You already know you can handle it.
