The streets of Lahti, Finland, 2009.
Are you getting this? The whole notion that excuses abound, and courage does not? It often makes me sick to my stomach when people write self-help blogs and we never hear their story?
Tell us your story man. Don’t tell us about some amazing person doing some incredibly inspiring endeavor. That’s everywhere. We need those, and love those.
But if you’re like me, you want to hear it from a different angle. Someplace with a real person, ordinary and average, whose story will never be on the evening news. And whose story sounds like a friend we know.
