Nothing in life is worth while unless you take risks. Fail BIG. You will fail at some point in your life, accept it, you will lose, you will suck at something. No doubt about it. Its what you do with this failure. You don't quit. You keep trying. EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. And when you Fall, Fall Forward. It will be scary to fail, but rewarding, I promise, because the chances you take is what defines you.
You want to get better, you want to self improve, stop looking for a short cut, find your alarm clock, find your discipline, find your guts, your passion, your drive and your will.
