In every soccer field in the world, you'll hear coaches screaming, 

"Take your shot!"

My personal journey with this lesson:

While at the University of Texas, I was elected to run the STEP (Strategic Training on the European Program) Conference for our international student group called AIESEC

If I was going to take this conference world-wide, I needed backers, big time backers.  So I snuck into a speech for Grad students only (which I wasn't) where Jim Hayes the publisher at Fortune Magazine was speaking.

After he finished, I ran up to him (literally) before the Grad students got to him. I told him about STEP in 30 seconds and got his business card. He mentioned that I could give him a call, that he would be 'interested to hear more'. I called his office and finagled a meeting with him in his high rise office win New York.  Rockefeller Center, Baby!

My suit was so small that I had to turn sideways to shake his hand so my sleeve wouldn't rise up to my elbow!  He listened to my 15 minute pitch and he ended up giving us a full page ad in his magazine!  We sold space on that page to our next 5 biggest contributors. This single page that was the key to our fundraising efforts.  

And it never would have happened if I didn't take my shot!!!

Remember, as the great Wayne Gretky said,

"You miss 100% of the shots you never take"

Take your shot Today!
