“Post-match, it was a really cool moment. He just told me to enjoy this day and enjoy this moment. And literally, there was no stress that day whatsoever. I wasn’t nervous. I was, just everything that prepared me for that moment, everything that I had to, you know, go out there and perform, I felt like I had it. That was something really cool.
“But something that John says that, you know, you could say, a lot of people say, but it’s so true, is just stop being afraid to fail and, you know, betting on yourself and just going for it. And a lot of times that’s what holds a lot of us back from things is us just, you know, worried about this or that. And it might not even be you. You might believe in yourself and just because one person has an opinion, it bothers you and it sets you off. That’s the biggest thing. It’s just don’t be afraid to fail. It’s gonna be a ride. It’s gonna go up. It’s gonna go down. But just continue to press forward.”
