We’ve all been there. Someone in your life says, “you’ll never ride a headboard bicycle! You’ll only ride normal bicycles.”
But if you work hard and believe in the power of your dreams, you will ride that headboard bicycle.
The Kevin Costner sports movie writes itself.
I pride myself on being mostly confident.
And this is a real point of pride for me because there was once a point in my life where I was aggressively lacking in confidence. My insecurity raged with the fire of a thousand Flaming Hot Cheetos, but because of the insecurity’s inherent insecurity, that rage mostly just looked like bad allergies.
I’ve come a long way and accomplished a lot of things, but it always astonishes me how that insecurity can all come storming back when life decides to pivot.
I don’t think you can even call what happened today a pivot. More like a glance slightly to your left.
We’ll get back to that.
