I was at Jack Canfield's BTS training last month in Scottsdale, Arizona and this music video was shown (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-QfLJbEN3k). Whatever your views about the specific content and the people involved, I was reminded that whoever we are, wherever we're from and whatever our background, anybody can literally change the world if we choose to.
Making a stand can take courage. Some people may attempt to discredit us or what we have to say and ultimately, in some cases, physically or mentally abuse us, incarcerate us or worse!
When something is really important to us, we can choose to take a stand for what we believe, or we can choose to hide our true feelings. Would we prefer to be a wallflower or remembered for what we believed in? A question I ask myself often.
At the end of the day, we take nothing out of this world, regardless of the material things we have accumulated in life. So, wouldn't it be great if we could leave a legacy and be remembered for having stood for something we were passionate about?
Check out the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-QfLJbEN3k. It really is inspiring!
