Misfit's Myth

A Fierce Practice 10 2 17

A Week of Questions
What is your beautiful failure? How can you reinvent yourself endlessly?

Here's the full quote:

There is a myth in most cultures about following your dreams. It's called the hero's journey. But I prefer a different myth that's slightly to the side of that or underneath it. It's called the misfit's myth. And it goes like this - even at the moment of your failure, right then you are beautiful. You don't know it yet, but you have the ability to reinvent yourself endlessly. That's your beauty. Your story deserves to be heard because you - you are rare and phenomenal misfit - you new species are the only one in the room who can tell the story the way only you would. And I'd be listening. Thank you.
