I've never been afraid to fail.
You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.
I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
The important thing is to realize that temporary setbacks are not permanent failures. Successful people recognize that we all experience temporary setbacks that require us to reevaluate our performance and take corrective action to achieve success.
They know that adversity is never permanent.
Correct your course, get your act together, put on your big girl panties and do everything it takes to win - that is how you succeed!
