Courage.

November 4, 2015

I took a temporary retreat yesterday with a group of strangers.  Honestly, it came at a good time even though it’s the middle of the week and I never leave the lair during the week unless it’s work related.  However, for me to sit down and be forced to interact and speak personally with a group of strangers is one of the things I need to work on the most.  Because I hate it.  But I do value how that situation forces you to organize your thoughts into words in real time; organically, not written such as on here.

One subject that came up was courage.

To me, one of the most courageous things one can do is to look introspectively.  Taking a good look at yourself and seeing all of your flaws, seeing all the room for improvement isn’t fun and certainly doesn’t feel rewarding.  However in my opinion, the pay off when applying what you find to whatever it is you do with your time (whether its lifting, or coaching or being in a long term relationship or being a father) is the only true path towards personal development.

I’m inspired to be more courageous every day by seeing people do this themselves.  Go forth and keep being courageous because it inspires the rest of us to do the same.

Trust the process.
