Afraid To Challenge Yourself?

Why do we compete? Do we take on challenges that will be difficult or do we take the ones where the odds are in our favor. Do you want to be the best you can be? For me, I have always challenge myself by taking on the best opponents available. I have never sought out an easy fight. I've have never turned down a challenge either. A lot of people are afraid to lose. But how can you win if you don't play the game? Sometimes you have to play a lot to get the chance to win. I have won accolades in several different combat sports, but I have something to tell you. I have lost! I lost my first kickboxing fight. I've lost in Taekwondo, Judo, Boxing, and Kickboxing. In sports where athletes compete a lot (several matches in one day) in tournaments, I couldn't tell you how many times I've lost. So, don't be afraid to jump in the deep in.
