“If failure is not an option, neither is success.”
We fear the man who is willing to lose it all. Who is willing to play full out. No reserves. The one who swings for the fences.
He’s a dangerous person.
Dangerous enough, to accomplish something great.
We all have a comfort zone. A status quo. It’s warm, cozy, and familiar. But it’s a box, with a ceiling that we can see and touch. It’s a world that cannot grow further than what it’s already grown to.
If we want to grow, we have to face the terror of failure. Face that chance that we may fail. Yet, as much as a “swing and a miss” may hurt, there’s something worse. Worse than any failure, embarrassment, or loss. It’s the pain of knowing that we didn’t give our very best.
Life is too short to bunt.
Let’s swing for the fences.
