My favorite quote (so far) from Eric Greitens new book Resilience
As time passes, some people become especially fearful of failure. Thet seek to protect what they've accumulated. They lose the hunger and daring of their early days. Comfortable in a cocoon, they experiment less. They try fewer new things. They embrace fewer adventures.
As we become older, it is comforting to know that we have earned a certain measure of proficiency and mastery through years of practice. It is fine and fitting to be proud of what we've done. But adults can come to stake their identity on the success they have attained, while losing the very spirit and character that made success possible in the first place.
Good advice for me at 50. I'm getting complacent.
