“Woah, hold up Josh. I didn’t come here to be shot down. My wings are delicate, you know.”
Well now hang on, who ever said that failing at something was a bad thing? Sure, it doesn’t feel good when you miss the last shot (by the way, the great Michael Jordan did this) or when you can’t lift your PB in the squat rack, or fell short of your fastest 5k run time by 10 seconds. A lot of people get down hearted by failing, even though they’re chasing their very best efforts.
