Dreams, risk, failure, growth

Mid Life Celebration art 2008
Circa 2008. First business logo sketch. Originally, only four themes were created: mind, body, spirit, work. The colors; grey matter, brown as median skin color, red for blood, and green for USA dollars.

Dreams require risks. Risks require failure. Failure enables growth. Growth enables dreams.

Fail your way to this place?

Lead guitarist for The Rolling Stones. From Saturday’s library tour, this magazine cover caught my eye. Why? Is Keith still a drug addict?

Fail your way to this place?

Failure?

No, don’t fail your way to failure.

Success?

Yes.

Fail your way to success.

Taking risks is risky, so is playing it safe.

Who’s stopping you?

Yesterday. The shortcut to the grocery store. These obstacles were easy to overcome.

The long way is the short cut.

Stumbled upon this video last night while on LinkedIn.

 

Arnold Schwarzenegger speech
The scary question is, “How hard is hard enough?”

 

Who’s stopping you?

More precisely, “Who’s stopping you from becoming what you want to become?”

7 Reasons why failure and excellence don’t like each other

Disney Keynote Speakers
Imagine Disney being Disney without a fanatical approach to excellence.

 

Reasons why failure and excellence don’t like each other:

  1. Excellence is a habit
  2. It’s challenging to do the right thing (habits) all the time
  3. You have to do the right thing all the time
  4. Excellence can’t be sustained without 100% commitment
  5. 100% commitment is challenging in a stressful, busy world
  6. Excellence shuns excuses
  7. Humans like excuses because the person making one believes it’s legit

Remember, very good and excellent aren’t the same things, just as good and very good aren’t the same things.

And the difference between good and excellent is staggering.

My mindset determines my goal, how well i strive for the goal, and how determined i am to always have the highest goals.

Note: One of my high goals is to be a minimalist. High goals are not about status and wealth (although for some they are).

High goals are about living (and dying) with peace and contentment.
