Failure Is Not An Option

Does your training challenge your body and your mind,
or does it stroke your ego?

If you never, ever miss,
if you never stumble,
if you never run out of gas,
can you honestly say you gave it your very best?

If you are afraid to be weak,
you will never truly be strong.

Failure is not an option, but mistakes are essential.

Nice quote Borris. This hits home as I have been struggling to reach my CMS snatch numbers. It wouldn't be so bad except my comp is in two weeks. Where did find the quote?

Thanks Matt. Actually, I made this one myself. "Failure is not an option" is from Apollo 13, but I added "but mistakes are essential".

You'll do great Matt. Get some rest and get after it! I'm looking forward, as always, to reading about your success.

Great quote!

If we're always achieving our goals, are we really achieving our potential or just stroking our egos?

This happens to often, the fear of failure breeds complacency and promotes mediocrity.
