When you win nothing hurts.
To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going.
You learn you can do your best even when it's hard, even when you're tired and maybe hurting a little bit. It feels good to show some courage.
What I do is prepare myself until I know I can do what I have to do.
I think that at some point in your life you realize you don't have to worry if you do everything you're supposed to do right. Or if not right, if you do it the best you can... what can worry do for you? You are already doing the best you can.
You learn how to be a gracious winner and an outstanding loser.
