You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. ~Wayne Gretzky
For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.”
We may never know how many times we have failed because we didn’t try. We sat on the bleachers and only watched others. None of us can win the game of life if we aren’t involved in it.
If we try something and it doesn’t work out, we can learn and try again. We can keep adjusting and learning and getting better, and eventually we will succeed if we don’t give up.
Don’t be afraid of failure. It is part of success. The best hitters (batters) who play baseball don’t get on base much more than they do. They fail over two thirds of the time. Successful business people have many marketing campaigns that lose money but they know if they have the right ones work they will win more times than they lose.
Don’t be foolish and take random actions and expect great results. Seek good council and learn from others with more experience and take good calculated risks. Don’t be paralyzed by fear and do nothing. That is a sure fire way to fail permanently.
