John shares a personal story.
When I left the school district as a teacher in 1987 to begin traveling and videotaping in schools throughout the land, I withdrew my retirement funds to buy a professional video camera and other production equipment. One of the district administrators who held a high position, prestige and a good salary said to me:
"I'm envious of you."
"Why?" I asked.
"It's because you have the courage to go out on your own. I don't have that kind of courage. How could I leave the security of working for the school district?"
"I don't know." I puzzled.
Walking away I wondered, how could I not do what I am doing? How could I ever feel good about myself hunkered under the security of the status quo, missing the opportunity of doing what I knew I could do , risky though it was.
That camera paid big dividends. Bought from retirement funds, it is now on display in my studio. The video camera paid for itself thousands of times over. I am inspired by the words of Theodore Roosevelt:
Far better to dare mighty things than to
take rank with those poor timid spirits
who know neither victory or defeat.
