This may be somewhat outside my normal postings, but giving out gold stars for telling it like it is falls squarely in my wheelhouse. Motivation is contagious, like giving hugs or youtube videos of cats. But what people don’t like to talk about is failure.
Enter Jason Jaksetic (also known as the Barn Beast): Trainer; athlete; oracle. From time to time I dust off and revisit his posting from 2011 to remind myself to turn down the volume on life’s cacophony of the irrelevant, to embrace my failures and fears and then keep running forward.
So get out there! Do something you might fail at, get outside your comfort zone and see what happens… you might be surprised and in the end you’ll know yourself a little bit better than you did yesterday.
