Never let off the pressure.
"Pressure can bust pipes, but it also can make diamonds." -- Robert Horry
Most people can handle pressure in small doses. But when left to their own devices, they let off the pressure and relax.
Not you. You never take the pressure off yourself. Instead, you continuously turn up the pressure. It's what keeps you alert and active.
Don't be afraid of the consequences of failure.
Most people stay close to the ground, where it's safe. If they fall, it won't hurt that much.
But when you choose to fly high, the fall may kill you.
And you're OK with that. To you, there is no ceiling and there is no floor. It's all in your head.
If something goes wrong -- if you "fail" -- you adjust and keep going.
