Non-Fabulous Risks Link

Yuvi is a smart and honest guy that does some good stick figure art and better thinking:

You know, I mostly hear one narrative about taking risks, and it’s the story where you take a big risk and you succeed beyond your wildest dreams…but what’s on my mind right now are those stories where you take a big risk and fall on your ass and maybe there’s nobody there to pick you.

Isn’t it strange how easy it is to find phony inspirational stuff when the world seems so much more full of failure? I’d like to see more of the hard and unsatisfying realities. Stories of mistakes, frustrations and failures are far better lessons to me than the Cinderella stories so easily trawled from the self-help aisle.
