“Don’t resist chances. Take them like vitamins”

"Don’t resist chances. Take them like vitamins” is a motivational saying that has been printed on many images. The saying—the start of a longer paragraph—was a Nike advertisement that was printed in Rolling Stone magazine on May 4, 1995.

DO NOT RESIST CHANCES. Take them like vitamins. Let go of the brakes. See what happens if you go five more miles. Footbridges be damned, find your own way across. Don’t worry about the bumps and bruises. Your body can take them. Don’t steer around the bits that scare you, go over them, go through them. Do something the guys in the bowling league would be terrified of. You feel your chin rise up from your chest, and you’ll be able to see what’s around you. What’s ahead of you. And there will be one less thing you cannot do. JUST DO IT. -September 1995

Don’t resist taking chances. Take them like vitamins. Let go of the brakes. Don’t worry about the bumps and bruises. You can take them. Don’t steer around what scares you. Go over. Go under. Go around or go through. Do something others would be terrified to do. You will feel your chin rise up from your chest and there will be one less thing you can’t do. Just freaking do it!
