Why success is like a White Tuxedo


written by john c ashworth, ma

My son Carl graduated from 8th grade yesterday and during the ceremony, which was the best one I’ve ever been a part of, one of his teachers was chosen by the students to speak to them.  His words were some of the most inspiring of the day.  Later, I would like to spend a little more on camera talking about everything he shared.  For now, I wanted to share one important insight that helped me a great deal…

Success can be like a White Tuxedo in that once you have it on and it fits real nice, you can become paralyzed by working too hard to keep it clean.

Take risks.  Create Epic failures, and live in the moment.  This moment.  It’s the only one you really have…

Have a great Friday!
