This is one of our favorite arguments, especially because we spend so much money on alcohol and drugs and cigarettes. We further spend money on the things that come with this lifestyle - hangover food, cab rides, entry fees, etc., and we also spend money on cleaning it up.
There's also the insidious cost of things money can't buy - missed life experiences. There is no way to buy more time or a new life.
Please hear us on this: whether it this school, the massage, on the yoga class, the juice, the therapist, the coaching - invest in your recovery. The return on investment is the best thing you’ll ever discover.
Everyone is terrified of trying and failing—we’ve been conditioned to believe that failure is something to be avoided at all costs, and proof of our inability to accomplish goals. The only real failure is not trying something in the first place, or giving up after a few failed attempts. Those that are successful—at anything —are the ones who dare to try despite their fear, and the ones who stand up after the fall. Success is built through failure—not through avoidance of risk of failure.
