James Schramko here, and a few months ago, I ordered a special board, which was to be shaped by John Pyzel, who shapes the boards for the two-time World Champion, John John Florence. And I was very excited about this board.
I selected a particular color, my exact measurements. And today is the day the board arrived. But the board was wrong. Even though the measurements were right, the board was not as per the measurements. It was actually an inch and a half too narrow and I can’t use it, and I was really sad about it.
And it’s just a reminder that there will be setbacks in life. You probably look forward to things, you anticipate stuff, and sometimes it won’t go your way. Now, you can either beat yourself up about it, you could get angry. Or, you just use that experience to power through something else. I’m making a video from it, that’s my catalyst. And hopefully I can get another replacement for it sometime in the future. But that’s my attitude.
So I hope you’ve taken some inspiration from this. Things won’t always run smoothly, and when they don’t, just use that experience to find some good in it and move forward.
