Have you ever felt like the world was against you? Most of us have, even though many of us live in one of the richest countries in the world. We feel like we have been short changed. We believe that if we were smarter, if our bodies were perfect, or if we had more money we could be successful. We believe we could accomplish great things, if only things were different..
I firmly believe that if we have a passion for something, if we are willing to put in the effort rather than sit back and look for someone to take care of us, we can do just about anything.
I watched two videos today, and I’m not quite sure which one moves me the most. The first was of a young girl playing the piano in concert. It was fascinating, and moved my heart. She had no fingers on her right hand. If you were just listening to her, you would not have known.
The second was a video of a young man who had lived on the streets since he was five. He survived by peddling gum and sodas and sleeping in public toilets. Just listen to him!
I feel I can only share one video with you, and I am choosing to share the video of the homeless boy. Please watch this in the privacy of your home. It would be too loud for you to watch at work, because I guarantee you will want to turn the volume up on your computer.
What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime?
What legacy will you leave?
