“Every once in a while — often when we least expect it — we encounter someone more courageous, someone who chooses to strive for that which (to us) seemed unrealistically unattainable, even elusive. And we marvel. We swoon. We gape. Often, we are in awe.”
“I think we look at these people as lucky, when in fact, luck has nothing to do with it.”
“It is really about the strength of their imagination; it is about how they constructed the possibilities for their Life. In short, unlike me, they didn’t determine what was impossible before it was even possible.”
That is just one bit of insight from a wonderful book: Look Both Ways by Debbie Millman.
Every great air talent I’ve ever known — and I’ve had the privilege to know many — is not afraid to blaze new ground.
Their aren’t afraid to sound different.
They aren’t afraid to test the margins.
They aren’t afraid to fail in their pursuit of connection.
I don’t know if you can will this into your personality or if it’s in-born.
I just know it’s worth trying because once you reveal this courage, your impact on everyone becomes immense.
