To do something great and remarkable with your life, you must be prepared to lose.

There are risks involved.

You will make mistakes.

There will be critics.

There will be obstacles.

You will sprain your ankle.

You will lose sight of what’s important.

You will occasionally be afraid.

You will often be terrified.

Of course, you could live an ordinary life, with nothing to lose, no risk, no mistakes, no critics, no pain.

But that’s not why you’re here.

You’re here to make a positive difference in the world.

And that means losing.

But thankfully, it doesn’t mean defeat.
