We all have dream projects that we'd like to work on or goals we hope to achieve in the future. But self-doubt and fears of rejection or failure can prevent us from taking the steps necessary to make those dreams reality.
Tebow is more than familiar with the scrutiny that accompanies both successes and failures when playing sports at the college and professional level. But he hasn't let that stop him from continuing to push towards his goals.
"Guess what?" he tells Welch. "Even if you flop, you live. And you're wiser, too."
When it comes to your career, Welch says you should start each day by asking yourself what you're waiting for. Stop making excuses, and focus on what steps you can take towards your goals that day.
"Going for it, even when the going's tough, is the only way to play — in life, and at work," adds Tebow.
