We talk frequently about accepting reality and accepting ourselves. But how do we do those things while also doing what it takes to make the contribution we’re here to make?

Do we risk becoming complacent to the point of failure?

How do we navigate being kind toward ourselves and still find the motivation we need in order to do what life requires?

We’re grappling with some deep questions, but they aren’t purely philosophical. How you think about these things has a big impact on your day-to-day life… and on your big-picture outcomes.
