“We are food for worms, lads. Because believe it or not, each and everyone of us in this room, is one day going to stop breathing. Turn cold. And die.” – Robin Williams as John Keating in “Dead Poets Society.”
“Carpe Diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” – Robin Williams as John Keating in “Dead Poets Society.”
I don’t know about you, but I have wasted a lot of my life up to this point. I am not where I want to be in various areas of my life. I am also to the point where I have a choice. I have a choice of how I am going to live and what I will make of the rest of the life I do have.
I want to live an extraordinary life. I want to live a life without any regrets. I want to make real, lasting changes that affect every part of my life to make it more extraordinary.
No one said it was easy. No one said it would always be “fun.” But at the end, I think most people who live extraordinary lives would say, “It was worth it.”
I want to live a life that was worth it.
How about you?
