Failure is one of the most crippling concepts in life. Everyone fears it, and yet after you experience it you realise that it doesn’t really exist–that it is only a concept in your head. It is no real barrier. And as J.K. notes here, passing through it leads to a very particular and wonderful type of freedom.
Scott McPherson is an Edmonton-based writer, public speaker, and mindfulness facilitator who works with individuals, companies and non-profit organizations locally and around the world.
A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them. When he realized people were confused by their own over-thinking, Scott began teaching others to understand reality. He is currently CBC Radio Active’s Wellness Columnist, as well as a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB where he still finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
