Why It Can Be So Useful to Give up Old Dreams

broken body

Autumn 2012. Statue on some historical building in Munich (Germany). We could not figure out if the net was meant as protection for the people walking beneath it – body falling apart? Or if instead it was protecting the statue from some unwanted bird dung. Anyway, do you see how the statue is trying to escape the net? (As you see – Michel has figured out a nice way to add comments on our photos, so be prepared to get a comment with each photo that he adds to the post. And well, who knows – maybe he will add the comments to some previous photos that are in already published posts…).

Cross-country skier Janine Shepherd was preparing for Olympic games, but then life changed her plans. She now shares her story about the human potential and insights about what happens when you give up your old dreams.

There are so many things we would like to add to this description, but it is the best that you watch it yourself – you will get inspired. (Again – we guarantee it!)

And again – thank you, Lauri, for bringing this talk to our attention! 🙂
