Dear Son

We all mess up

Disney Keynote speaker jeff noel
Heading to Glacier National Park (2017) for a week with only two bags.

 

We all mess up.

It’s not a matter of will we mess up.

It’s a matter of when, and, how often.

Inflating your worth isn’t necessarily messing up.

Unless.

Unless your claims and your reality are diametrically opposed.

This author intrigues me because of the marketing hype. And for context, marketing hype is not an evil thing – it can be, but my focus is not on that right now.

In 30 days – when this goes live – i hope to have explored his thinking.

i also hope to have completed all the 2018 Glacier National Park travel arrangements.

Dear Son

Please fail more often

famous start up garages
From LinkedIn. For every story like these, there are thousands that never made it.

 

Dear son, please fail more often.

Fear and risk are inseparable.

Risk and failure are inseparable.

Failure and growth are inseparable.

To grow, fail.

Son, remember, i want you to do as much of this as possible before you leave home to start your own life.

Overcoming the failure to start because of fear

Overcoming the failure to start because of fear…

Maybe someday i’ll use this website…www.ExcuseWhisperer.com

Perhaps it could become the eighth book on my list of books to write.

Sure, someday, right?

That’s what we always say, “Someday”.

Humility (never enough)

Why did i fail so predictably in the past?

Rainy, cold night in Bethlehem, PA
From the rear driver’s side window, returning to Senior Living Facility from a party. i could see clearly, but the iPhone lens saw it differently.

 

Why did i fail so predictably in the past? And why i no longer do.

  1. Wasn’t willing to fight like hell for it
  2. Denied, unintentionally, that i was more comfortable not changing
  3. Didn’t feel guilty in failing because so many others failed too
  4. Subconsciously was afraid of what i’d have to commit to if i succeeded

The awakening came when i became a teacher and i saw so many teachers who only preached what should be done, but were too weak to practice it themselves.

i became disgusted with living a lie.

And that was the catalyst that changed everything.

It really comes down to overcoming the victim mentality, which proliferates and justifies excuses – it literally is like being a blind man and then, miraculously, having your eyesight restored.

Authenticity (New Currency)

Living seldom stops us. What stops us is our fear of living

Teppan Edo at Epcot's Japan
Let the memories begin right here, right now

 

Dear son, thank you for an amazing 36 hours. Perhaps the best evening and next day – back to back conversations ever.

Dear readers, thank you for your amazing support after all these years.

Living seldom stops us. What stops us is our fear of living.

Mistakes and failures are gifts.

Life altering gifts.

Embrace them.

Chase them.
