A huge obstacle to success is the fear of appearing foolish. (Tom Roy, sports coach)
Do you remember what it was like the first time you played in a piano recital? Or when you ran out on the field to play your first game before a crowd? Many of us feared the first oral report we had to give in school, whether in 5th grade or in college. We probably feared making mistakes, didn’t we? Working hard to get past those jitters is a big part of achieving success.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7).
