This is the old fashioned "if you never try, you'll never succeed" but put in the least efficient way, lol.

I like “You miss all of the shots you don’t take.” I think Wayne Gretzky said it, but people sometimes also credit Michael Jordan.

Another fun version is “You can’t win if you don’t play.” My friend said this in the course of slowly losing like $4,000 at a blackjack table. The context and outcome serve as sort of a counter argument to the statement.

Edit: He did manage to sleep with the blackjack dealer (who was fairly attractive), so perhaps he still won.

He lost $4000 and I'm assuming wasn't devastated. Attractiveness +2 right there.

I agree I just noticed it after reading the comments. I guess you can say I was really looking for some motivation this morning and when I found this I immediately liked it without reading it a second time. 😂
