You Miss 100% of the Shots You Don’t Take – Wayne Gretzky

Life can be slippery, treacherous. We can’t always know what lies ahead; what kind of outcomes await us. Still, we must soldier on and never give up.

It’s only natural to have fears and to worry about the unknown. We want to be happy, and bumpy roads are never easy to navigate. It’s normal to worry about failing, not reaching our potential, or even getting hurt.

There will always be people who try to get in the way of our progress. There will be situations that are tricky to power through and there will be times when we feel unease. We cannot allow our fears to prevent us from doing what is best.  

Though no one likes to disappoint others or themselves by trying to achieve their goals and then not accomplishing said task, it’s even worse to not try at all. Without putting in the necessary effort, nothing good can happen.

If next time you’re faced with a difficult job, you feel like turning away, remember that you can’t be successful if you don’t try to put your best foot forward. Just as in sports, if you never take the shot, you can’t possibly make it.

About B.G.

Hi. I enjoy writing and sharing my experiences with others. For many years, I have struggled with anxiety and know how difficult it is to deal with something so seemingly limiting. My hobbies include: writing, reading, watching TV, and working hard to get through my anxiety. I hope that through my writing I can help others realize that they are not alone in their struggles and that they can overcome their obstacles! I currently have blogs at www.gettingthroughanxiety.wordpress.com and www.restinpieceblog.wordpress.com - In addition, I am the author of the fantasy-horror novel, Rest in Piece and short story collection, Abstract Clarity.
