Last post we talked about becoming a co-creator in your life. Let's go deeper. When is the last time you attempted something really great? Something so bold, daring, and imaginative – that if you failed at it you would face a potentially strong degree of risk?
There are millions of people who go their entire adult life and never try this once. Probably because they tried some brave things as a child or teen and failed. And likely faced criticism, ridicule, or even condemnation. So they learned to lay low, blend in, and become average. And what a crime against humanity that really is...
We live in a society that attempts to inoculate us against fear and indoctrinate us into fitting in with the herd. Which is another way to say mediocre.
The difference between mediocrity and greatness is your willingness to attempt, and be willing to fail at, bold accomplishments. For it is in striving and sometimes failing at greatness, that great character and ultimate victory are won. So how are you doing on that?
