       We are tough, right? Ironpeople are actually fragile people who dare to push themselves too long, too hard, and too far. We have the courage to keep on going because we know anything is possible. Of course, the possibilities also include failure.

Audaciously Vulnerable

The possibility of failure makes us vulnerable. Yet we have the audacity to keep going and keep trying. We keep putting one foot in front of the other regardless of the circumstances or the challenges that confront us.

Likewise, Ironpeople continue with these same attributes in their lifestyles, their values, and their character. Further this is then combined with the perseverance to relentlessly pursue these characteristics and ideals. We have the audacity to do what’s right, what’s good, and what’s “in us” even when we face our most difficult circumstances. We know anything is possible

What do we pursue? We pursue fairness and excellence. We believe in being honest and true to ourselves and to others. And we all know that it all begins with us. When we have difficulties and are vulnerable,  we continue to see clear trails and bright sunshine. Moreover, we have the vision and the heart, to pursue our goals despite the bumps in the road. Perhaps the bumps are where our vulnerability and weaknesses are revealed, while at the same time allowing us to rise to new levels of excellence.

Our pursuit of fairness and excellence is not sometimes – it is daily, weekly, yearly … and we keep on going. This is us. This is what we are made of. And yet, this is also what makes us vulnerable. But, we know that this is okay because this is what it takes to be who we are and what we want to be. We believe, and as long as we believe with honor and integrity, we keep going.

Let us continue on the path of our goals and beliefs – let us be audacious and let us be vulnerable. Thankfully, our audacity to pursue our values and beliefs keep us going. We won’t give up because we know anything is possible!

Audaciously vulnerable,
