Stinky Pete

There are few things more liberating in this life than having your worst fear realized.

It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique. It’s not easy, but if you accept your misfortune and handle it right, your perceived failure can become a catalyst for profound reinvention.

Whether you fear it or not, disappointment will come. The beauty is through disappointment you gain clarity and with clarity comes conviction and true originality.

Work hard, be kind, and amazing things will happen.

— Conan O’Brien, Dartmouth College Commencement Address, 2011
