All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure. ~Mark Twain
Was it Michael Phelps who said he trained by doing what he knew others would be unwilling to do? That's one of my life philosophies. If I want to compete at something, the first thing I do is try to figure out what others are unwilling to do.
That space is the only place to find an edge, unless you've got tons of talent. I never bank on that, though.
When you want to "win," where do you look first for your edge? Where do you find inspiration? How do you plot your way? Any favorite quotes?
And sorry for the absence and late response to comments in the last post. The internet and electricity were out, and then I got hit with a major flu. Major yuck. I hope I'm feeling better today. I've got that post-fever headache. Ick.
Do you ever have certain fond memories connected to your illnesses? Like this flu: it had the same taste in my mouth as one I got when I was young. And that made me remember my daddy brought home this kit to cut out, fold, and make houses. I laid on the living room couch with that, hot Jello, and Campbell's chicken noodle soup.
I strangely found myself yearning for those things when I was in bed, this time.
Isn't that weird?
