“The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.”  Sven Goran Eriksson

As a boy I remember crawling on my hands and knees to the edge of a very scary diving board.  Why I was even there was on a dare from some smirky brat who wouldn’t leave me alone.  Trembling with fear, I peered over the edge with my skinny arms now wrapped around the board.  Voices were hollering dully from below, but I barely heard them over my prayer to God.  That was the first time I ever dived off a diving board–or should say fell off it.  But then after I realized the landing wasn’t so bad after all, my falls turned to real dives, and my dives to flips and cannonballs.
