Fumbles Don’t Mean You’re Not A Winner


Maria is a friend of mine who is an obsessive perfectionist. She’s someone who doesn’t tolerate failure, who gags at the very thought of it. And when she has experienced failure, her way of dealing with it is to believe she’s a loser.

For certain things (anything that is repetivite and predictable), she’s right.
