“I have twice tried to cycle my way to the Olympics and did not succeed on either attempt. And yet, I refuse to use the word “fail.” Not reaching a goal is one thing, but to attach failure to it would take away all I did achieve along the way. From seeing the world to meeting incredible competitors to improving as an athlete, I have only gained, not lost. To “fail” at any anything means one must first try something, so technically the failure cannot exist without trying; and if there is effort, then perhaps there is no such thing as failure.”
