Being Your Best You

My next piece of advice for the upcoming generations is to accept failure. I grew up being so discouraged about not succeeding in everything I do and let it get me down. I have quit sports that I loved because I was embarrassed about not being as good as those around me. As I get older I realize you need to fail in order to learn and get stronger at something. It isn’t something to be ashamed of but proud to practice and overcome.

I strongly urge those who come across this to let your curiosity take over and explore new things. Try to think differently and don’t stick to a basic routine. It takes more effort and you may find out you hate some of them but it opens so many doors which you may have never had the change if not willing to be a beginner. I came across this viral video that as really hit home on how to be your best you…through failure! If you haven’t seen it already here is Will Smith’s opinion on the topic:

There are a few different reasons I believe this video has grabbed the attention of so many people. As Mendelson said in “How to Really Make it on the Web”, having a legitimate celebrity alone can capture the audience of fans who already like them and care about what they have to say. Mendelson also stated that what you need to make it on the web is to have the media more than just the audience. I found this video on Facebook as it keeps popping up consistently. Media can help connect the message you want to get out and spread as fast as a disease. Mendelson recommends Twitter more than other social media sites but currently they all can help you keep intact with your audience if that is the platforms you use. The people you want to reach will dictate everything you do.

I'm from South Dakota so I drive back quite often to visit friends and family.
