It is the thoughtful quote by contemporary American poet and author, Suzy Kassem:
“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will”
This quote resonates with the MTQ48 model of mental toughness about the importance of both the 4C’s of Challenge and Confidence;
- Challenge, recognizing that failure is a part of success
- Confidence in your own ability to spot and seize opportunities.
