The most important step to reaching any goals is simply trying, yet it is often the hardest one to do.
Embrace your dream, have the courage, and make the effort!
Sister Madonna Buder, was featured in a Nike commercial among many other videos and even wrote a book about her drive to do things others said she couldn't. Here is a short and inspiring video about her. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpjA1L1gSFA.
The Iron Nun isn't the only person who encourages us to just try.
Hockey's "The Great One", Wayne Gretzky, reminds us that "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"
Suzy Kassem, author, filmmaker, and philosopher, provides insight that "Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will"
The greatest athlete ever, Michael Jordan, shares that "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed."
Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light-bulb, states that "Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always just to try, one more time."
And of course Nike has the most memorable slogan of any brand, largely because it is the mantra of so many successful people. "Just do it!"
