Wipeout

What would you think about someone who wanted to become a world-class skateboarder BUT! without ever having an epic wipeout that shredded the skin off their knees or elbows or palms or whatever else...?

That’d be unrealistic, right?

Part of the deal with becoming a world-class skateboarder is that you’re absolutely definitely for sure going to massively wipeout.

Repeatedly.

So...

Scars all over your body are part of the deal.

Expecting otherwise would be asinine.

Here’s the thing...

If you want to be world class or make a difference or really matter much at all, you DEFINITELY ARE going to wipeout.

Repeatedly.

There’s no reason to worry that it MIGHT happen once you realize that it MUST happen for you to get where you want to go.

Sure it’s going to hurt.

But that’s part of the deal.

Expecting otherwise would be asinine.

Yours,

—J
