Don’t know how cool my kids are going to think Ashton Kutcher is after I keep reminding them what he said about hard work. But this is a great message.
We all make big and small choices each day on how we look at what is in front of us.
For me, watching things like these allows and helps me to think a little bit bigger.
a pep talk from kid president, a 9-year-old who was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (or “Brittle Bone Syndrome”), but isn’t letting it keep him from being awesome…..
….stop being boring – boring is easy…..
….it’s time to do something……
…..the road less traveled – HURTS – not cool robert frost!!!!
…..i want to be on the path that leads to awesome…..
…….we have work to do – we can cry about it, or we can dance about it……..
……we were made to be awesome…..
….so get to it.

Cameron Crowe has some of the best movie scenes ever. Not that his movies aren’t great – but I seem to remember scenes from his movies more than I remember his movies.
Jerry Maguire:: Show me the money, and You had me at Hello
Almost Famous:: Singing Elton John on the Bus
Say Anything:: Holding the Boombox playing Peter Gabriel and “I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen”.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High – Sean Penn? fogetaboutit.
Anyway….Ran into someone yesterday that reminded me of this scene. Because they failed – NO. Because they were still smiling.
Failing, losing…..whatever you want to call it is not only inevitable but essential – essential when you are throwing your hat in the ring in any meaningful way. It’s just part of the journey.
What isn’t inevitable and absolutely essential for success and or peace? Smiling. 🙂
