What does this mean to you?
I started to listen to a podcast that talks about courageous leaders. That and life has me thinking about courage on a whole new level.
Watching a friend walk peacefully to his own end was courage like I didn't know possible. I wanted to kick and scream in that moment. He showed me what courage looked like.
My job scares me. Public speaking is always a little intimidating. Standing in front of a group of people and making up new ideas on the fly. Pre covid I would do this. Wait they could touch one another. Wait they would touch equipment. Wait thats not working on the skills I want to. Ahhhh everyone is looking at me for ideas. Then I throw ideas out and no one is brave enough to try. Everyone is comfortable. But comfortable doesn't foster learning. Our bodies and minds must fail. Then we learn. Thats how it goes. How do I inspire being courageous enough to try. I hope we can stop this idea of perfection. That you shouldn't try incase you fail. Fail a lot. Fail at everything. At least you tried. Teach your kids, your friends, your partners that its ok to really suck at something. Have the hard conversations. Call them out. Be a courageous leader. Climb up just to fall down. Lets all inspire one another to fail. Then try again.
I'll keep trying. I'll keep being inspired. Ill keep having the hard conversations. I get to live and that my friends is our greatest gift. Don't waste it in the comfort zone. Love the hard stuff too.
Wishing it was still this sunny. I will survive this weather too.
