The chance of not winning is not an excuse for a failure to start; however, the failure to start is the reason you will never win!
Individuals and leaders must be willing to take a chance if they ever hope to be successful in their roles. Too often, I find that many grow to a certain level or position, then freeze in their efforts and growth. Is it because they are afraid to take a chance; are they fearful of failure? Without risk, there is no reward. Without motion, there is stagnation. You must start if you want to succeed – You must take a chance if you want to continue to win!
