First let me express my heartfelt gratitude for the way so many of you spread the word on the Japan relief post this weekend. Please keep it up for a few more days, as you are really making a difference. Now I’d like to go back to our discussion from last week on how your self-preservation instinct can sabotage your success… Think about this:
If your self-preservation instinct can rationalize you out of trying something, it can guarantee you that you can’t fail. And after a while you convince yourself not that you’re not trying great things, but that you were smart enough not to chase after silly or impossible goals. Then you have a life with the herd, watching CSI and Law & Order, and playing Farmville every day.
Is that the life you really want?
