I am scared

Not because I have witnessed the result of the decisions

Not because I know exactly how much it will take

Not because I have failed before and know what it feels like

Rather I have heard how it sounds

I have been told what failure is like

I have seen it from a distance. Not happen to me. But to others

And that isn’t a good feeling

We wouldn’t believe most things unless we see it for ourselves

Yet, we conveniently imagine failure of others as ours

Ask yourself

Are you scared because you have SEEN yourself as a loser? Or you have simply IMAGINED yourself as one?
