Back yourself

"Back yourself" is a phrase I learned from a British rugby announcer in college. A guy broke free from the line and headed for the try line (translation: end zone). With the defense bearing down on him, his decision was to either take the safe route and look for support from his teammates. Or he could race down the sideline for glory. On this day, the player gambled on himself and headed for the corner. His risk was rewarded with a score. The phrase has stuck with me ever since. Are you going to play it safe or pin your ears back and head for your goal? Its either 100% or you are not going to make it.
