There is a difference between not caring if you fail and not fearing failure. Failure is inevitable.
Apathy is not fearlessness. In competition, apathy is cowardice. Fearless determination is paramount to success. Fearless determination allows you to walk away from failure or defeat with your head held high, knowing that you did everything within your control to achieve your objective. Fearless determination allows you to take calculated risks, risks that may fail profoundly.
The fearlessly determined use failure as an opportunity to improve the approach in their next attempt. The apathetic are indifferent to failure, they allow it to happen without doing anything about it, or they use it as an excuse to quit.
Set your sights on greatness. Fix your eyes on the target outcome, and attack it with fearless determination. Succeed or fail, win or lose, you will be able to walk away with your pride and integrity intact.
Never give up.
