The only person we are doing any damage to by not showing up - is ourselves. If we let our fear - of being embarrassed, of worrying about what someone else will think, of being disappointed (again), of not being good enough, of wondering if we're worth it or from the right side of the tracks, of worrying whether or not we'll be noticed, acknowledged or rewarded - prevent us from showing up, how can we ever hope for the opportunity to actually get what we want, let alone excel and win the game.
