You just can't go through life scared to fail. Life is just too precious and it goes by so fast. I cant think of anything more depressing than lying on your death bed thinking of all the things you 'should' have done. Just imagine being in that spot and thinking "I should have lost some weight," "I should have spent more time with my family," ...the list goes on and on. That is what we do, we SHOULD all over ourselves. Honestly, how many second chances and near death experiences do we need to wake up?
This video is a classic commercial of a man who was not afraid to fail.
"I’ve missed more than 9,000 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.” – Michael Jordan
