1. Your parents don’t want what is best for you. They want what is good for you, which isn’t always the same thing. There is a natural instinct to protect our children from risk and discomfort, and therefore to urge safe choices. Theodore Roosevelt—soldier, explorer, president—once remarked, ‘It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.’ Great quote, but I am willing to bet that Teddy’s mother wanted him to be a doctor or a lawyer.
