Motivation that doesn't come in a saccharine package

I've been meaning to write a review for Courage Makers for over a year now, since it got me through some really tough times. However, I'm recovering perfectionist, and wanted to make sure that I wrote something that *perfectly* captured their essence, but I decided to take some of Meg's advice and not let perfect get in the way of done. Part of what I love is that Meg's interviews usually cut to the heart of the matter--people share the good, the bad, the ugly, rather than a pretty narrative about how they became awesome. It's refreshing and approachable, and provides a sense of community that reminds you that you're not alone in your struggles. I come to these podcasts when I need to feel less alone, and motivated to muster up the courage and forge my own path.
