Summary, etc.:
How will you know what's possible if you don't try? This is a story for anyone who has ever felt like a beginner, or had doubts, or worried they weren't good enough. It's a story for those who have experienced the pain of trying something new and not having it turn out as they had hoped. So, in many ways, it is a sotry for every one of us. Because at some point in our lives, we will all fail. Failure can be disappointing, and even heartbreaking, but the story doesn't end there. Because failure has so much to offer. It's a necessary step to learning, to growing, to getting better. It can show us how badly we want something--and how hard we are willing to get it. It challenges us to be brave, to take heart, and to try again. And yes, there will be times when you'll question yourself. You may want to give up. But if you believe--if you practice and press on--you can do amazing things.
