I have said, that you can! That is all that matters. You were created to be smart and clever, use it. Use all that you are and all that you are capable of, to stretch towards the mark.
The winning is not exclusively in the outcomes, the winning is in competing and facing the enemy head on, despite the odds against you.
Set your face like flint and fight for your very life. The competition is not in them, but in you facing the fear, in you. The enemy is defeated, because you showed up.
To the victor go the spoils, the spoils are confidence, clarity and the consistency. These are the tools, that give you an advantage in facing both fear and foe. The enemy is fear, whether internal or external, foreign or friend, you must control fear or it will control you.
2 Timothy 1:7
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”
