No matter how hard I try, and how many reasons that I come up with that I was successful. I still have to admit to failure before I can move on. I set a goal and failed to reach that goal. I don't like to fail, but that is part of the game. If there was no risk of failure, it would not be a challenge and possibly not worthy of completing.
Even a 3 mile loop around the neighborhood can end in failure. But the potential reward is worth the risk, every time!
