– Vince Lombardi
I was recently talking with a woman who has been in love with her best friend for years; she said that he is perfect for her in countless ways, and she was even recently told by a mutual acquaintance that it is obvious that he is attracted to her. She is still hesitant to broach the subject with him, however, lest he doesn’t share her feelings. If you’re holding back on going for what you know you want, you’re wasting your most precious commodity: Time. If you’re attracted to someone, flirt outrageously, write them poems, court them with all your charm and charisma. If you want a certain job, create a killer resume, portfolio or video presentation and go for it! So many people are walking around with dreams burning in their hearts that they’ll never even begin to reach for because they fear they’ll fail. Personally, I’d rather try my hardest and lose, than never get to play at all.
