You’ll Stand Or Fall But You’ve Got To Test Your Legs

You can talk about it. You can think about it. You can read about it. 

But eventually, you’re either going to do it (or you’re not). 

It’s as true for the easy things as it is for the hard things. 

And it’s as true for us as it is for our competition (or the ones who won’t ever attempt to compete). 

h/t this quote from Dr. Julie Gurner (@drgurner, aka the real life Wendy Rhoades):

You’ll stand or fall, but you’ve got to test your legs.

Bonus: RTJ deep cut that I still think of and love on pretty regularly (that synthy bass, good lord). The Killer Mike spin on the Dr. Gurner quote – where you’re finally comfortable with the crazy and your sea legs give you confidence. Harness some of this energy:

Real shit, I came for the jewels

I’m the killer of kings and fools

I’m the reason the season for treason starts this evening

And this evening the odds ain’t even

People praying to the gods but the gods ain’t even listening

Don’t matter if you’re Muslim, Hebrew, Christian

When death runs in the distance, there will be no “mercy me’s”

There will be no reprieve for the thieves

There will be no respect for The Thrones

No master mastered these bones

Your idols all are my rivals

I rival all of your idols

I stand on towers like Eiffel, I rifle down all your idols
