Choose your own adventure

Do you want the kind of friends who say what you want to hear, or friends who say the things that you need to hear?

Is your career optimized for maximum safety and stability, or do you proactively seek out responsibility and opportunities to create meaningful art?

Do you show up to play your heart out every day, grateful that you’re in the game rather than watching from the sidelines (regardless of the score when the whistle blows)?

And are you internalizing a limiting narrative about the heights you can reach in your lifetime and how likely you are to reach your goals?

I don’t want to know your answers, but you should have them.
