Blog Quote #486

Here's Blog Quote #486...
"The person who is afraid to risk failure seldom has to face success."
-Coach John Wooden-

Ok-- we are on a roll here with the Coach.
Isn't this so true? Easy to stay in our comfort zone. Not do anything wild, out of the ordinary. Not risk some potential failure, disappointment, and of course, the critics. Sadly, the critics are usually in the stands, not risking anything either. Always simple to comment and find fault on the trials and tribulations of others.

But where is the fun in not trying something new? Something of a challenge. As the old saying goes.. "Don't be afraid to go out on a limb-- as that's where the fruit lies."

Always remember trying and failing-- 100% of the time-- trumps not trying and succeeding. For what has the non try-er succeeded at--other than Doing Nothing. The person who attempts is sure to learn something from the experience, and might just succeed. In actuality, with persistence, the tryer will very likely succeed. And what a wonderous feeling THAT is!

That's my view... what say you?
