Table of contents

Written with wisdom and wit, her latest book Brave outlines the steps to pursue our most deeply held goals and turn dreams into reality. This book will help you to build the courage needed to do the right thing rather than the easy thing — to go out on limb, have tough conversations, challenge the norm, and risk failing.

It should be read widely. Nothing worthwhile is achieved living timidly and avoiding all risk. Brave will help you build the confidence to dare more boldly and live more bravely.

This is not an article telling anyone how to live; this is not an article advocating the wisdom or foolishness of different paths. It is simply an article in which a diverse group of creative people articulate how their own lives veered off course, and about some of the ways they each found to correct that, and about what they believe they have learned about themselves and about living in the process.

Even for those interviewees who chose to pepper their accounts with wry humor and funny stories, these were not lighthearted interviews. Invariably these were intense and often painful discussions about something each clearly considered a hugely important and central part of who they now are; as they communicated their experiences, they were prepared to dig deeply, and often unsparingly. Twelve years, if I keep going till January. My sobriety date is February 25, , so I guess a couple months shy of two years. Ben Harper 49, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter : I would describe myself as 19 months in.

I have 25 years of sobriety. So I grew up in the woods listening to the wind. It was just the silence and Mother Nature, no one around—it was an awful lot of magic there. In my teen years, I discovered alcohol, and that made me feel really good—I really relaxed and settled down and paid more attention to things. In my early 20s, I discovered cocaine, and that was it—my problem was solved.

I could write and finish a song.

I felt like Superman onstage, and I played that way. I thought cocaine and alcohol was the combination, and it was just a kid trying to feel better. And I chased that initial solution to my problems for 30 years or so. Baker: I started smoking cigarettes when I was 12 years old, because the older kids at my bus stop smoked cigarettes. They got older and I would drink with them and smoke weed with them. Soko: I started going out to bars with my stepbrother when I was 13, living in a very small town in southwest of France, escaping the house every weekend. Then when I was 16, I started going out three, four times a week and then every night.

Baker: I feel like many people struggled with the abuse of substances when they were adults, and I think that lends a gravity to them that is easily dismissed or obscured when you use substances as a child. That sort of falls into the paradigm of a debaucherous adolescent, sort of an irresponsible teenager. Anastasio: Well, in the year , somebody gave me an OxyContin. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was at a club—I was about to go onstage. As I often did at that time, I did a shot of tequila, and then I did another shot of tequila, because I really liked tequila.

This guy had a pill, and he crushed it up and gave me a little bit in the form of a line. By my band was gone. It was horrible. So when I was arrested, December 15, , my car was full of various opiate substances—oxycodone, Percocets, heroin. Walsh: Vodka was what worked for me. I would have to say that my higher power was vodka. Vodka and cocaine and Camel Light cigarettes was a great triangle for me, because the cocaine made it so you could drink more vodka, and of course the cocaine made it such that you had to have a cigarette, and of course with cigarettes you have to have a drink…and round and round you go.

You see how that works? I think people know the gist, or they can find out. Tyler: Well, we would do cocaine to go up, quaaludes to come down. We would drink and then snort some coke until we thought we were straight.

Selected statistics

Harper: Alcohol. I never did drugs. Isbell: I was drinking a lot—that was my main problem. And yeah, I did some drugs, but usually that was just to keep drinking.

I would do a little bit of cocaine or some painkillers to sober myself up so I could drink some more. But my main problem was whiskey.

14 Inspirational Quotes to Conquer Event Planning Stress

More than the specific drugs, what is more significant for me to identify is that I never liked things that were stimulating. When I sought substances, I sought things that would put a blanket over my feelings. Numb them down, turn it all off. Things that would bring me down and things that would make me feel less. Tyler: It was more or less the thing to do, back then as well. Tyler: I was the kind of guy who would hate to be the guy who never came down because he never went up, if you can understand that. So I played with everything.

Walsh: I had friends who were pretty much the same way. Keith Moon was a very good friend, and it was so much fun hanging out with him—we just did whatever his alcoholic mind said was a good idea. For a long time. At least hard drugs, you have to have a dealer. All I know is, I could feel its presence in an ominous, daunting way that was preventing me from being my higher self.

I can dance on a bar on fire! I can do that! Then I realized I threw up wine. Baker: I do have a little bit of trouble with candor around the things that I used to do. Walsh: I used to throw stuff out of the window, and trash hotel rooms, and superglue all the drawers shut, and superglue the toilet seat down, and superglue the phone to the nightstand, and all kinds of stuff. I had a chain saw for a while. Just having it, usually you get your point across. Tyler: Oh, hell yeah.

How to make compassion thrive

Of course! Or Yahtzee, you know? You go and rock the fuck out. Maybe I guess I thought I was. For a short window. Baker: No, I was not having fun. I was very scared and uncomfortable and sad. It was more like a numbing agent, or an escape mechanism, I suppose. Soko: I was definitely having fun, and I felt like I was living life. Isbell: Sometimes. For every hour of fun, I had a week of misery that I put on myself. Anastasio: Oh God, yeah. Tons of fun. Mountains of fun. Nothing but fun.
