This morning I stood in a sea of thousands (more on that to come) and listened to these words….
And wow, I felt like they were being spoken just to me. Like I was wearing a big sign around my neck right there in the third row of the Compaq Center that said “Quitter,” “Giver Up-er,” “Doubter of Destiny.” What can I say….it was a really big sign.
But at the same time I know that we all feel this way from time to time. And sometimes we just need to be reminded that it is exactly when we feel like giving up, exactly those moments when we doubt it the most, that it is in those times when we are standing within finger tips reach of everything we ever dreamed for. Today if you’re in that place where you feel like giving up, where you feel like the world is stacked against you….I hope you’ll just take that as proof that you dared to dream big dreams. That you were brave enough to wish for un-ordinary. That you chose to do more with your one wild and precious life.
And that everything you’re fighting for is close enough to touch… if you’ll just keep pressing on.
