Product of Legends

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.
-Elanor Roosevelt-

It's said that the world was built on legends.
 And that legends are a way of understanding things greater than ourselves.
 Forces that shape our lives, events that defy explanation.
 Individuals whose lives soar to the heavens or fall to the earth.

This is how legends are born.

The Myth of Experience

People think, the more experience you have the better you'll be at something.
This is only sometimes true.

In the world of sales and marketing for example,
 it's easy to find people with twenty or more years of experience.
What if they have two decades of experience but only one of learning ?

I see this at martial arts camps all the time. 
Joe Lewis would often voice his disappointment to me
 about different practitioners who were like this.
On their resumes though, show they have alot of experience !

Some times the teacher, 
always the student

Many people go through their careers and lives doing the same thing the same way.
The people who get ahead are the innovators, trail blazers. 
Not, imitators who get by with repeating the old ways of doing things.   

Take responsibility for change within yourself, and your life.
If you fail, try harder in NEW WAYS.
When unforseen circumstances come into play,
embrace them and try something else.

You don't need more experience ........

You're ready NOW  !!

What you need is more COURAGE !!
