One of my greatest pleasures is to watch my friends take a risk. Whatever it is –starting a business, writing a book, embarking on a new career — I want to be on their team. I love ambition and drive and there’s nothing better than seeing it take place.
Unfortunately not everyone wants to be on someone’s team. They wield extra long straight pins, long enough to pop the balloon of hopefulness. Instead of championing, they second-guess. They share stories of people who didn’t succeed. They don’t green-light someone’s dreams. Frankly, I don’t get it.
I’ve met those pin-wielding people and avoid them like the plague. I don’t need someone to sabotage my pursuit and neither do you.
