It’s ok to Jump! You will Fly.
When I speak with groups I always close with, “Every Opportunity, good, bad or indifferent is an opportunity worth having. It is from these opportunities we gain some of life’s greatest experiences and we become better humans for it.” So jump! Take the opportunities, take the challenges, meet the people, praise the highest, seek the insight, explore this world and love every minute of its experiences and the people you meet along the way. It is an amazing world we live in.
I have stood on 5 of the 7 continents, watched the sunrise from the roof of Africa’s highest peak. I have met the Dalai Llama, Presidents, Vice Presidents, Nobel Laureates, Governors, Actors, Authors, Pioneers, Prime Ministers, World class Athletes, extraordinary photographers, inspirational speakers, poets, Popes, and the everyday human. In each of these interactions, I have found kindness, compassion, drive, respect. I say all this too you, simply because, every person I have met, every person I call a friend, every interaction and every leap and bound we make as we work to make a better tomorrow, to be better humans, there is undoubtedly the existence of the common thread. We are all human and we all put our pants on the same way. It is your choices, your ambitions, your drive and your dreams that make you extraordinary. So, go live your dreams. It’s ok to Jump! You will fly!
