Choose the Adventure

Sara Blakely

“If you focus more on the adventure of trying, the outcome doesn’t hold so much power. Growing up my dad would encourage me to fail, to take risks, and try new things. After a perceived failure (because the only real failure is not trying), he would ask me what I got from the experience. I didn’t understand at the time why he was “forcing” me to recap failures. I eventually learned that there were always hidden blessings. Always some beautiful nugget that made my life more interesting and richer. Failure can either traumatize and immobilize us, or it can be seen as brave, daring and full of juicy nuggets that make us far more interesting than sitting on the couch. To think more like the latter takes practice and discipline, but it’s so worth it. Throughout my life, in reflection, I realized if given the choice, I would always choose the adventure over the outcome.” @sarablakely

“Please, please, please be brave with your life! I often think about the end of my life, sitting in a rocking chair talking to my friend Christina (I’ve known since I was 3). I don’t want to be saying, “well, I wanted to try this, and that, and this, and that, but I didn’t because I was scared.” No way! #Goals be the one in the nursing home with the best stories! 👍😉 #BeBraveWithYourLife #NoRegrets”
