“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.
