It’s hard, and that’s ok

Life is so wonderfully amazingly hard and beautiful all the same time. Some days I feel the energy and passion to conquer the world; other days I feel overwhelmed and full of doubt. 

Both of these can be true at the same time. People are so full of conflicting emotions, thoughts, and abilities. Today I was reminded of a friend who, in running a startup, freely shared his uncertainties and shortcomings, while at the same time committing to learn and improve and become better.

The confidence that you have it in you to figure something out, combined with the humility of admitting you don’t know yet, are a powerful combination. I love meeting people who have both, and I strive each day to improve in both areas.
