Skiing is a bit strange, if I think about it...
Go up a mountain and have faith you will arrive at the bottom safely, on a couple of 5 inch slabs.
"You've got this. You are fine!" I say to them. And though they may have a bit of fear, they have faith in me, and I know they can do this.
How many things in my life have presented themselves like this? On the precipice of something, with fear I leap, hearing "You are fine! You've got this" somewhere inside.
You have to have faith in something that loves you and a desire to accomplish something you are not sure you can do.
