Take 3 minutes and watch this cute video. There are so many good quotes in here I can’t even begin to write them all down:
“I think we all need a pep talk.
The world needs you to stop being boring. Yeah, you. Boring is easy. Everybody can be boring. But you’re gooder than that. Life is not a game, people. Life isn’t a cereal either. Well, it is a cereal. And if life is a game, are we on the same team? I mean really, right? I’m on your team, be 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 roads diverged in the woods and I took the road less traveled and it hurt man! Really bad! Rocks, thorns, and glass… My pants broke! Why? Not cool Robert Frost!
But what if there really were two paths? I want to be on the one that leads to awesome. Just like that 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 then keep going, keep going, keep going, and keep going.
What if Michael Jordan had quit? Well, he did quit. No he retired. Yeah, that’s right, he retired. But before that, in high school, what if he quit when he didn’t make the team? He would’ve never made Space Jam and I love Space Jam.
What will be your Space Jam? What will you create that will make the world awesome? Nothing if you keep sitting there, that’s why I’m talking to you today. This is your time, this is my time, this is our time. We can make every day better for each other. But if we’re all on the same team let’s start acting like it. We got work to do. We can cry about it or we can 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 do 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.
Oh hi everybody. We’re all working hard to make this an awesome year for other people. And you guys are doing it! You’ve been super encouraging to me so I wanted to return the favor? Who do you know who needs some encouragement. Pass this pep talk along and let’s get the whole world to dance.
I’m dedicating this video today to my friend Gabby. She’s a cool kid, she likes pancakes, and she’s fighting cancer like a boss! And to all you watching, who encourages you? Send them this video and let them know. So get to it!
