Have you ever “birthed” something?
A child, a business, a book … something that began with you? If you have, then you know the feeling when you see that “something” mature and grow. It’s amazing.
Well, that’s how I feel when I look at PPK these days. For those of you who don’t know, a couple of friends and I started PPK in a basement back in 2010. Fast forward seven years later and now we have 4 locations, a brand new sweet website, and a huge staff that grows weekly (it seems).
But more importantly, it’s something that never would have happened if we didn’t take a chance.
In fact, I think that’s one of the things I love so much about Parkour. Every day I get to see people (especially kids) push through their fears and physically challenge themselves only to discover that they have abilities they never thought possible.
Maybe you’ve experienced that type of thing yourself through your training?
Why am I sharing this? Because I want to encourage you to chase your dreams.
Try something new.
Take a chance.
Regardless of what that is, do it.
Because you’ll surprise yourself; and in the end, you’ll find that even though it’s uncomfortable, taking that chance was the safest thing you could do.
In fact, watch this video by Seth Godin. You may have never heard of this guy, but he’s a brilliant writer and entrepreneur. You’ll enjoy what he has to say.
