Have you ever been really hesitant about something you've been yearning to do? Do you feel like you're overwhelmed by fear, and you just can't seem to take that first step out to give it a try? 

Do you feel held back everytime you think of the setbacks you might encounter? Do you feel like you'd rather give it a miss than to experience failure? 

BUT has it ever occurred to you that failing might actually be better than living your life with regrets? 
Regretting the opportunities you've failed to seize? 

You know guys, I've been there before. There was a point of time when I just felt like there's no point trying no matter how much I wanted to, because there's always this little voice at the back of my head reminding me how tough it would be to face disappointments. And I really hate that heart-sinking feeling.

It was only after all those times I've hit rock-bottom that I've finally came to this realisation, and this has made me who I am today. 

Every failure is a new experience gained. 

You should all start to believe in yourselves and pursue your dreams! 

I mean if you are perpetually telling yourself, "I'm not gonna succeed", then you will definitely NOT be successful.

Break free and follow your passion to create a positive impact in the community!
