If I could take my own advice, I’m convinced I would be the most bloody brilliant person in the world.
I wouldn’t give a darn when someone blows me off. Their loss.
I wouldn’t get upset when somone says something hurtful or decieving. They’re wrong.
I wouldn’t stress about the future as much and live in the future more…after all, doens’t the present determine the future?
I wouldn’t be scared of sky diving because fear is always wrong.
I wouldn’t worry about what the scale says…because it’s just a number…because living a healthy life style and eating a healthy diet is way more important that being a size 10 or weighing 170 lbs.
I would strive for peace like Gandhi.
I would love like Mother Theresa.
I would believe in the power of dreams like MLK Jr.
I would fight for something I believe in like Sean Carasso (Falling Whistles).
I would take more chances. Do something impossible.
I just typed “Who did something impossible?” into Google and came across this Website: Start Here: Live Your Legend
The header of the site also said: “CHANGE THE WORLD BY DOING WORK YOU LOVE!”
So with that, I’ve pieced it all together.
A huge part about taking my own advice, finding peace, becoming a better – stronger – wiser person…is comes by doing work I love. It doens’t matter if you are a mother, a politican, a journalist, a personal trainer, a writer, a teacher, a sky diving instructor, an accountant, a waitress, a contruction worker…no matter what you do…do it with love. Do it with ambition. Do it with purpose. Do it with hopes of a better future, not just a better future for YOU, but for a more positive future for those who come after you…those who are looking up to you…those who are counting on you to make this world a better place.
Steve Jobs obviously said this before I did…what an amazing and inspiring person. I won’t try to say it better than him…To the 2005 Stanford graduating class, Jobs said, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.” Watch his complete speech here.
Now, go live your legend.
Go change the world.
