"Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game."
Yes, there is a chance you could fail, but are you are going to focus your energy and attention on potentially failing? The reality is, the inherent part of anything good is that it has it is associated with bad. To add, good is relative to bad, just as happiness is relative to sadness. It’s all a given in life.
Without taking the chance, and putting yourself in a position to fail, you won’t be able to experience joy. With love comes the fear of heartbreak, and with a promotion comes the fear of sudden underachievement. Life is a series of contrast. It’s how we respond to these situations that dictates what will happen in our life.
So, step up and swing for the fences, because we only have one at bat in life. When you let the existence of that joy you are seeking pull stronger than the fear of not reaching your goal, a very interesting thing happens. The positive outcome becomes more probable, and the joy creeps that much closer, because the energy you exude is the energy you attract.
Reject fear with action. Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.
