COLD SWEAT 😅

LEVEL: ADVANCED

Fear of losing or desire to win?

July 7, 2019


(Liverpool Football Club manager Jürgen Klopp)

“I do not believe that it’s the fear of losing, that makes you a winner. It’s rather the desire to win. That desire lets you grow beyond your own possibilities. It makes you strong.”

Jürgen Klopp, German football manager and former player (1967-)
