Forgive yourself.

Forgive yourself for not being the richest, the thinnest, the tallest, the one with the best hair. Forgive yourself for not being the most successful, the cutest or the one with the fastest time. Forgive yourself for not winning every round.

Forgive yourself for being afraid.

But don’t let yourself off the hook, never forgive yourself, for not caring or not trying.”

I want to put one hand on your right shoulder, one on your left, and move you back and forth really fast. I want to shake the fear out of you and reinforce Seth’s message: You are not allowed to not try.

Stop over-analyzing it. Stop googling it. Stop asking your friends what they think about it! Just try it – whatever it is. If you don’t try it, you will never know. Do you want to live with that???

If you are not following Seth Godin, what ARE you doing.
