You-miss-100-of-theIt was ice hockey great, Wayne Gretzky who said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

It’s true in sport and it’s true in life.

You won’t make a sale if you don’t make a pitch.

You won’t get published if you don’t start typing.

You won’t buy a house if you don’t make a bid.

You won’t get the girl if you don’t ask her out.

You won’t get your business up and running if you don’t put your “Open” sign out the front.

You won’t get your dream job if you don’t apply for it.

I don’t know if your dreams and aspirations will work or not.

There’s a chance that you’ll miss, that it doesn’t work and that they’ll say no.

But I can guarantee that if you don’t try you’ll never get there.
