Kris Bryant attempting to dunk is a perfect example of 'if at first you don't succeed, try, try again'

Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant makes a lot of hard things look easy. He hits mammoth home runs off some of the greatest pitchers in baseball history, he won an NL MVP at the age of 24, heck, he brought a World Series to a team that hadn't won one in more than 100 years.

But, if you happened to be watching his Instagram story on Monday, you saw that, yes, even Kristopher Lee Bryant has one flaw: Dunking. He just couldn't do it.

Finally, though, after many exhaustive attempts and jokes at his expense and pep talks into the camera, he did it.

Learn from Kris Bryant, failing humans. Go out and conquer the world. Don't let a few unfortunate attempts get you down. As a now-probably-broken-up, mid-90s band once said, you are your own worst enemy.
