NO FEAR - PLAY FREE!

"Missed more than 9000 shots. 26 potential game-winners. Lost 300 games. “Failed” over and over. THAT is why I succeed!"

– Michael Jordan

NO FEAR (of failure)

  •  Play free! Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo.
  •  Learn from your mistakes (embrace them, don't endorse them)
  •  Grow, grow, grow - Always learn, always improve, always push ahead.
