Dare Mighty Things
“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs Even though checkered by failure, Than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much ...
“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs
Even though checkered by failure,
Than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much
Because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”
– Theodore Roosevelt.
Have you ever failed magnificently?
Have you ever dared, tremendously?
Have you ever toiled, tirelessly?
Have you ever triumphed, completely?
Those of us who allow ourselves these type of moments
Are truly LIVING.
Not just existing. But LIVING.
The inaugural Nocrastinator’s 7-Day Challenge was as daunting for me…
as it was for the rest of our brave challengers.
I took on the INSANITY Workout DVD that had been sitting on my mantle for over two weeks. Gathering cobwebs.
I ended up working out 4 days in a row, before my resolve succumbed to a combination of fatigue and an unexpectedly very busy weekend.
But unlike before, I can accept and declare that I am responsible for not hitting the 7 days in a row.
But also, no regrets.
I didn’t hit 7 out of 7 days.
As the Organizer, You Could Say That Was An EPIC FAIL.
But I did work out 4-days straight. Often despite the urge to procrastinate, quit, or do the job with mediocrity.
Without the challenge, I would have worked out 0 days out of 7.
A difficult lesson I’ve learned over the years, is to try my hardest, then celebrate what I did accomplish.
And then try again.
The most inspired story I read last year was that of Nick Vujicic.
“We are put in situations to build our character.
Not to destroy us.
You only live once.
So GO FOR IT.”
Even if you don’t have the money, the connections, the time, the energy, the know-how, the discipline…
You can still succeed. As long as you don’t give up.
Did you finish strong?
If not, will you try again?

It was an honor and a privilege to have you as part of the challenge.
