Authenticity (New Currency)

What if we wished there were more of them in our life?

Crazy, nut-job misfits… wish there were more of them in our life?

The 2014 Winter Olympic video below is worth an encore. Only two minutes.

We get so busy on the treadmill of life. We poison our souls so slowly we never notice.

(it’s almost sickening to watch dreams waste away)

So here’s the question worth asking.

Are we satisfied with our trajectory?

Whatever it is that we dreamt about, does it still give us a tinge of excitement?

Or have we kissed it goodbye forever?

Either way, those really important younger people in our lives are watching us (non-Olympians that we are).

And we are telling them in advance how ‘The Herd’s’ story ends.

It always ends the same way…. “No, I had always wanted to, and really wished I had done _______. But I didn’t.”

But those crazy, lunatic misfits – the freaks who bucked tradition… they’re the ones we wished we had followed.

Take it from one who knows. There’s still hope for us.

A year from now we’ll wish we had started today.

This is stuff that cannot be made up.

It’s simply the cold hard, amazing truth.

Be well and remain amazed.

Pretty sure you know how to access the video…
