Take a minute and watch the short Youtube clip. Go ahead, explore your inner geek.
Okay, so this is how it works: you don't get the elation of victory without first stepping into the uncertainty of defeat. In geek: you don't get to experience the thrill of blowing up the Death Star until you first have to courage to almost die trying.
Everyone longs for the victory, for the elated moment when you get the girl, make the winning shot, overcome the obstacles and...yes...blow up the Death Star. But those moments are unavailable to those of us who don't ask her out, take the shot, fight the odds or...yes...fly into the heart of the Death Star.
So what's worth trying for? Go for it.
