The human spirit finds itself when pushed, catches fire in the dark, and multiplies under pressure. 
Maybe that steaming pile of manure dumped on you is just the right conditions for your next stage of growth.  #onward #quote

Could the biggest thing holding you back be you?  There's every excuse in the world & then there's the simple decision to take ownership and move forward - what'll it be?

I got this from @matthewluhnstory of @Pixar yesterday.  He was referring to brands and storytelling, but I think it also applies to people. 
Clever is easy, safe, and fun.  It's great for drawing attention, deflection, and easing tension.  I've certainly hidden behind clever myself.  Vulnerability is messy and scary and yet, the only path to a life well lived.  I still find it a battle, but I'm trying each day to show up fully and push into deeper places.
