On Being Awesome

I know this has been circulating around your Facebook and other social media.  If you haven’t seen it, take the time to watch it.  It’s adorable and extremely motivational.  And if you don’t have time to watch it, read it below.

I think we all need a pep talk.

The world needs you to stop being boring. Ya- you!

Boring is easy.  Everybody can be boring. You’re good or not. Life is not a game people. Life isn’t a cereal either. Well, it is a cereal. And if life is a game aren’t we all on the same team? I mean really, right? I’m on your team, you’re on my team.

This is life people, you got air coming through your nose, you got a heartbeat. That means it’s time to do something.

A poem:
“Two road diverged in the woods…” “… and I took the road less traveled.”
“AND IT HURT, MAN!” Really bad. ROCKS! THORNS! And GLASS!”
NOT COOL ROBERT FROST.

But what if there really were two paths? I want the one that leads to awesome.

It’s like the dude, Journey said: “Don’t stop believing. Unless your dream is stupid. Then you should get a better dream.”  I think that’s how it goes. Get a better dream and keep going, keep going, keep going and keep going.

What if Michael Jordan had quit? Well he didn’t quit, he retired, ya yes, he retired. Before that, in high school, what if he quit and didn’t make the team?  He would have never made Space-jam.  And I love Space Jam.

What would be your space-jam?  What will you create to make the world awesome? Nothing if you keep siting there. That’s why I’m talking to you today.

This is your time. This is my time. It’s our time.  If we can make everyday better for each other, if we’re all in the same team, lets start acting like it. We got work to do.

We can cry about it or dance about it. We were made to be awesome. Let’s get out there. I don’t know everything, I’m just a kid. But I know this, it’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance. So get to it. You’ve just been pep talked. Create something that will make the world awesome. Play ball.

So much wisdom in all of this.  It has me pondering:  What is my Space Jam? Do I cry, or do I dance?  Do I act like I’m on the same team as the word?  Or am I only thinking about myself?  Am I on the thorny road to Awesome?

I feel like I should watch this video at least once a week to remind me of my true goals, and remind me why I’m really Here.

Did this video have the same effect on you?
