Are you on the edge?
Francis Mallmann is one of the biggest celebrity chefs in South America. He had an awakening when he was 13 years old, which is when he left home. He became a very accomplished French chef at one point, then turned his back on all of that.
He walked in his own path to develop his own style of cooking with fire.
I’ve had dinner with him twice at his restaurant, Los Fuegos, in Miami. He’s a very fascinating person, and he lives what I teach.
He has totally embraced this idea that I’ve been perpetuating now for a very long time — He totally lives it and embodies it in everything he does.
I’d recommend you check out the Netflix program, “Chef’s Table” (Season 1, Episode 3) to learn more about Francis Mallmann.
He has a quote I want to share with you that relates to the idea of personal freedom:
“You don’t grow on a secure path. All of us should conquer something in life… and it needs a lot of work and it needs lot of risk.”
“In order to grow and to improve, you have to be there ‘a bit on the edge of uncertainty.’”
When I heard him say that on the show, it rang a bell in the back of my head.
For years, my mentor basically said the same thing.
My mentor said: ”If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much room.”
Many authors I’ve studied have also talked about this idea of “living on the edge.”
What is the “edge” they’re referring to?
It’s the edge between success and failure.
Most people don’t live anywhere near that edge — because they’re raised with the idea of living safely.
But unless you’re living on that edge, no growth can take place in you.
Where is your “edge”?
Are you constantly challenging yourself to do things you’ve never done before?
You know you’re living on the edge when you do something that excites you but also makes you nervous. The fear is guiding you in the right direction.
