[Lemmy] said that Sid Vicious would throw himself at guys much bigger than he was and they backed off because they could tell that Sid had no fear
That’s a story that Lemmy told Henry Rollins. It was just a passing comment in this article (which is about music elitism, an interesting article in its own right), but it stood out to me.
Sid Vicious was a tall but skinny dude. From a purely physical standpoint, there wasn’t much intimidating about him. But that he threw himself at bigger guys and they backed off because they could tell Sid had no fear? What might that tell you about the importance of mindset in being successful?
