Fear is a much discussed and debated topic in the entrepreneurial space.
Rightly so too.
It’s absolutely what separates those who succeed from those who do not.
Even moreso, a lack of fear – or having the ability to push past it – is the sole reason some are able to choose the entrepreneurial path and some are not (which is also a great thing from a self-awareness perspective, it’s not for everyone).
On a recent impromptu trip to the Gold Coast to visit some friends, I had the pleasure of meeting a rather special young lady – her name is Grace Gibson.
It came as no surprise to me that she was not only gorgeous, charming, bundles of fun and multi-talented given the gene pool that created her. But one thing I was NOT expecting from this 8year old was a level of wisdom which quite frankly blew my mind.
I’d heard on the parental grapevine that Grace had recently delivered a somewhat powerful speech as part of a school homework assignment. I’d also heard that she was saving for a new toy.
So, employing some gentle coercion (aka bribery), I asked her if she would be willing to share said speech with me in exchange for a ‘gold coin’ donation.
This quote was the opening line…
Once I had picked my jaw up off of the floor, I listened – gripped – to the rest. I won’t share the whole thing here but it prompted me to explore the topic more fully via a quick video.
Suffice to say if children ruled the world, we’d all be better off.
When do we learn this fear rubbish?
And when do we learn all the other crap that we CHOOSE to so drastically over complicate our lives with?!
So… THANK YOU Grace Gibson.
I am VERY excited to see how your wisdom impacts the world over the next 100years or so! ❤️
