We all need to become The Most Interesting (Wo)Men in the World. Why? Because ordinary is boring. Peeling away the hilarity of these commercials, the reason this guy is so damn interesting is because he does wild & crazy things.
The line, "The last time he flirted with danger, danger got clingy", is where we all need to be in creating our craft and taking risks. Whether its Seth Godin telling us we all need to be artists, Brené Brown telling us to Dare Greatly, or Facebook telling its own people, ‘fail harder’, they are all beckoning us to take a risk; to challenge the status quo.
Flirting with danger repeatedly is the only way to begin to get comfortable with it being around. The more you look for danger and run towards it, the more it will find you, becoming clingy.
Case in point, some guy friends of mine a while back created a group focused on self-improvement with the underlying goal of, keeping their lives interesting and moving forward. Its easy for each day to look and feel like the last and the next.
You know in your gut you don’t want a life that is monotonous, routine, and uneventful. We don’t hero worship the benign and color-between-the-lines individuals. We all deserve to be unique and remarkable. But you have to make yourself that way.
Go track down some danger and be rewarded. Do it enough and we just might make a commercial about you.
