all you have control of is now - Daniel Ilabaca
Humans and Super humans a like share a fear…
The fear of falling.
It may be the fear of falling from a ledge or the fear of falling from grace but the fear is the same. We spend our lives struggling and striving to get to the top of what ever it is that we want to be on top of, only to find out It s harder to stay on top than it is to get there. We are constantly reminded that there can be only one at the top. The question is does it matter? should you be so focused on your position in life that you miss the big picture.

Was he afraid of falling from the top? no ,he never cared to be the best player in the world just to be the best player in his world.
