Todd McFarlane did an episode of Blueprints with Complex where he credited a lot of his artistic and entrepreneurial success to his immaturity. He said in that interview with Complex that when he meets people like Steven Spielberg, he picks up on a boyish charm and enthusiasm in their personalities that he credits to their success as well.
It’s the mischievous twinkle in their eye. The excitability in their smile. The optimistic reaction to adversity.
No matter what day and age you look at or where you’re from the most curious and enthusiastic people in the world are children.
We’ve all been in that headspace where everything is new and awe inspiring. Where you are happy to fail hundreds of times to finally learn how to walk or talk. Where you become obsessed with story characters that teach you how to be noble. Where you’re not afraid to fall and get up again. Where you want nothing more but to ask questions and search for answers...
That level of excitability, enthusiasm, and curiosity...hold onto that as you age because trust me, it will serve you well for the rest of your life 😉
PS this week’s podcast ep is going to be fucking 🔥
These guys 😍😍😍 they positioned themselves like this. So. Cute. #turcotteboys
Okay so. "In short" Just about everyone in my family knows I was the biggest rock & shell collector as a kid and pretty much still am. Theyve always interested me and seeing a volcano one day was definitely something I only dreamed of doing when I was a child.
On Wednesday. Not only did I see two Volcanos but I climbed one at 1,394 metres. When we got to the very top, we hiked down into the crater where there was a lagoon🌋 You better believe I got right in that water planted my feet firmly into the mud for as long as I could & breathed in as much of that pure air as possible. I touched every tree, leaf,stone and branch I could. Which, at times we had no choice as the terrain was extremely muddy and difficult so we grabbed whatever we could to not fall. We fell anyway. I bumped my head 3 times , I slipped , I cut myself on rocks and branches and who knows what else. My feet were completely soaked and I was covered in mud from head to toe. It was amazing. I was in tears by the end of it because my hips,knees & feet hurt so bad and we were moving fast. In 6 hours we hiked 19km. It was physically one the hardest things Ive ever done. But every bit of suffering was worth it because👉We saw tons of monkeys, Ancient drawings on Rocks, stood in the clouds, filled our lungs with some of the cleanest air, got an incredible view and made it to the very top of a volcano and went inside of it. To top it off there were pigs at the bottom🐷 When we finished, we drove to Ojo de Agua. A a natural spring pool that comes from the volcano and swam in it to clean off the mud. Which Im still finding on me 😂To finish off the day we stood in the black lava sand formed by the volcanos to watch a breathtaking sunset. More & nicer photos to come when I return home❤➡
Auch wenn ich den Geteilten Dienst nicht gerne mag, bringt er Vorteile😊 So kann ich in der Pause für den EMS üben und dann mit einem beruhigtem Gewissen nach Hause fahren ohne daran denken zu müssen.😊Obwohl ich eher der "Ich lerne lieber am morgen Typ bin", schneide ich besser ab, als wenn ich nach der Arbeit zu Hause übe... Momentan übe ich die Tests ohne Zeitdruck, dies ist wichtig damit man seine persönliche Strategie verfestigen kann😊Ausserdem halte ich die Lösungsstrategien auf einem Lernposter fest, das Bild dazu folgt noch😄
