Change is part of life. So are set-backs. So are re-directions, mis-directions, and forgetting to ask for directions. No matter what your pursuit, you will, at times, feel like your legs are being swept out from under you or you’re being kicked in the gut.
That’s why it’s so important to embrace your passion and do you what you love.
When you’re standing at the bottom of the hill, looking at the boulder rolling your way…
When you’re laying on the floor, watching the boot come down…
When you’re just sitting alone at a table in the corner of a dark room, staring into your eighth cup of coffee with a squirt of lime juice and a pinch of salt…
You want to be able to look back and say…
“Yeah, but it’s been worth it.”
“You can knock me down, but you can’t knock me out.”
“I’ll be fighting my way right back.”
“Wow, was that worth this?”
“Why did I invest so much of my self?”
“So now what?”
You will fail. You will be set back. You will get knocked around.
Make sure you fail doing what you love, so that when it happens, it’s all worth while.
