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.
Following a serious childhood brain injury Scott McPherson unwittingly spent his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and the self. This made him as strange to others as they were to him. Seeing the self-harm people created with their own overthinking, Scott dedicated part of his life to helping others live with greater awareness. He is currently a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB, where he finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
