Get out there! As simple as this short saying is, those three little words have come to mean so much to all of us here in the 573. Not only do I support and promote this idea, but personally, I also live by it! It inspires me to be my best and chase my dreams. To change my surroundings and experience new things. It helps me burst from my self-bubble and thrusts me into the world unafraid.
Get Out There! There is no time to waste.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
We know it's not easy to make a dream a reality, but it's possible. Don't give up on your goal by thinking it's unrealistic. Be willing to put in the time and effort needed to work out the kinks and make it a reality. Do your homework, educate yourself, and push past the naysayers. It takes years to learn and accomplish anything of value. You gotta put in your 10,000 Hours of hard work to become an expert at anything–that is a hard truth. It's up to you to get yourself there. It's up to you to ignore all the naysayers who tell you it's impossible or say things like, "you can't do that." When you try, you will fail. Big Whoopdy do!–that's how we learn. Accept and understand the importance of failure—Don't let the fear of failure or past failures stop you. Feel the fear and do it anyway!
...ignore all the naysayers who tell you it's impossible or say things like, "you can't do that."
If you look for great things around you, you will find them. Wear rose-colored glasses. Refuse to surrender your destiny to negativity and self-doubt. Stay motivated.
We can't wait to see what you do this year.
Yup, I love it. Get out there!
