Ruk Digest 7/31

Hello Fellow Rukkers!

1.  Spanx Founder Sara Blakely Shares Why It Is Important To Celebrate Failure

Watch the minute and a half long FB video to see how you can redefine failure to be more successful. 

I seriously encourage you to incorporate this into your daily lives. 

2.  A Super Practical Jacket Design

It can store your drink, it has a special pocket for your passport, your charger, your tablet, and even has a built in neck pillow that can inflate!

Watch the 3.5 minute video for more details.

So I love this concept of making an incredibly practical jacket, but I don't actually recommend getting the jacket as it has bad reviews. 

3. This Man Jumped Out Of A Plane With No Parachute and Survived

This is a great promotional campaign by Stride Gum. 

I'm not going to spoil how he did it so click the link to see his jump on Youtube (it's a 3 minute long video).

Thought of the Week

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small [people] who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.

Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing."

-Muhammad Ali
