Pyramid of Success; 2nd Teir

"You must not be afraid to fail. Initiative is having the courage to make decisions and take action. Keep in mind that we all are going to fail at times. This you must know. None of us is perfect. But if you're afraid of failure, you will never do the things you are capable of doing... Never fear failure. It is something to learn from. You have conquered fear when you have initiative." ~Coach John Wooden

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” ~Albert Einstein

“For an athlete to function properly, he must be intent. There has to be a definite purpose and goal if you are to progress. If you are not intent about what you are doing, you aren't able to resist the temptation to do something else that might be more fun at the moment." ~John Wooden

You don't have to be a Vulcan or a robot, emotions can be valid and its certainly healthy to be in touch with your emotions- HOWEVER, emotions can cloud your judgement and lead to mistakes or worse, injury- not to mention hurt others and damage relationships. If you're going to base your actions on what needs to be done and what's best for everyone in stead of reacting or over-reacting to situations, you need to keep your feelings in check.
