Every successful fighter I've ever coached hated losing. They would do anything to avoid that feeling. But, they never let the fear of losing stop them trying. The inevitable slip, fail, loss did not make them quit. Did not make them sit back and blame those around them, rather it inspired them to honestly evaluate their skills and training to make the necessary adjustments.
You will 100% not win
the competition you don't enter, not get the job you don't apply for
and not get the girl you don't ask out. Losing sucks, don't let anyone
tell you otherwise....but a life spent not trying, not putting your ego
at risk is much worse. Be bold, be brave, step into the arena.
Arc de Triomphe seems a suitable setting
