I wouldn't know where to start describing what makes this book such a wonderful read. Its such a refreshing and honest account of Phil Knight's entrepreneurial journey. The book itself evokes all sort of emotions, at times I was jut laughing my lungs out and others crying my eyes out. I will never look at a pair of Nike's the or the listed Fortune500 stock the same🙌. This is such a beautiful gift to the world from Phil Knight,the creator of Nike. There are way too many quotables. I think one of my favourites is: "Beating the competition is relatively easy. Beating yourself is a never ending commitment." "The cowards never started and the weak died along the way. That leaves us, ladies and gentlemen. Us." #shoedog#2018ymreads # admiration #journey#onwards&upwards buy
Fun times: Squats 240 x 1, 220 x 3 Bench 167.5 x 1, 155 x 3 x 3 . Not the fastest I've moved the above, but given I didn't get close to completing this last week (horrible day), I'm very happy to have done so today.
Been a rough couple of weeks recently but slowly coming out of the gloom and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Skins on the mend, mood is restoring, energy is slipping back, i'd say im 70% back to my usual self... Lets keep moving upwards! #nearlylivinthedream#onwards#upwards
It's oddly appropriate that I found this right before leaving the apartment one last time. I set it on top of my fridge and noticed it as I was walking toward the door. It's sad to leave another nice apartment behind. #onwards#adventureawaits#goodbyeapartment
booking it to the library . sitting next to a stranger and reading my book next to them is the closest I'll get to being an extrovert, cause who even needs friends /s... just kidding i love all of you very much so, you guys are the best! not kidding about the book part though, stranger danger is real . (also guess I've failed at taking a breather from posting as well)
Depression is waking up feeling like shit and giving yourself a headache because you feel so conflicted and guilty that you feel this way when pretty much everything in your life is finally going well and you just have this endless spiral of thought until all you can do is crawl into bed and just feel pain and hope that you wake up feeling a little less like this tomorrow. I don’t know, sometimes it helps to know you aren’t the only one... . . . . . #depression#anxiety#mentalhealth#recovery#lowmood#happiness#onwards#mindfulness#tired#mind#uni#life#stress
