Fear of Failure will keep you up at night, planing, rehearsing, going over contingencies.
Fear of failure will keep you training hard.
Fear of failure will stop you from cutting corners.
Fear of failure will keep you working, thinking striving, and relentlessly trying to be more prepared for battle.
So I want you to be afraid of failing. I fear failure

James Pollard Espy, was shown in a chance encounter as a young man. Unable to read and write until he was eighteen, Espy attended a rousing speech by the famous orator Henry Clay. After the talk, a spellbound Espy tried to make his way toward Clay, but he couldn't form the words to speak to his idol. One of his friends shouted out for him: "He wants to be like you, even though he can't read."
Clay grabbed one of his posters, which had the word CLAY written in big letters. He looked at Espy and said, You see that, boy?" pointing to a letter.
"That's an A. Now, you've only got twenty -five more letters to go."
