The braver I am, the luckier I get.
This is the first quote I posted in The Foundation Project.
So often we compare ourselves to where our idols are now and not where they started.
And the strong likelihood is that they also weren’t very good when they started.
They will also have had a lot of self doubt along the way.
I think it feels comforting to put people on a pedestal because it confirms our inner belief that what they have is out of reach.
It’s easier to see them as some all mighty being because seeing them as a normal person who was brave and worked really hard would break that illusion.
It feels safer to believe that they got where they are out of luck and talent instead of years of trying and failing before they started to get good at something.
Because that would mean it could be possible for us too. And then we’d have to question what’s really stopping us.
You can’t fall flat on your face if you don’t even try, right?
If you wait for luck to find you, you run a high risk of never being found.
But if you can first search for some bravery, I bet you’ll get lucky every time. 🍀
What do you want to be braver at this year?
How can I help?
Big love, Meg 💛✨
