|Actor: Hey, i don't care who you are... what age, what race, what gender... I don't care about any of that stuff, but what I do know is that... you have a dream inside of you. Now "that dream" you have kept hidden from the world, you made excuses for it, you delayed it. You've listen to people telling you to be realistic, but deep down in your heart you know that you're not living up to your potential and life is now something you just getting on with...I want to listen some reality on you real quick where is the wealthiest place in the world? Do you know? It's not LLondon, it's not Washington, it's the graveyard. (Beat) Because in the graveyard you will find inventions never invented, business is never erected. Songs never sung, books never written ideas never lectured people never realized, because they were scared.. to take a risk. SCARED like you. But you wanna know something else? You're not in a graveyard. YET. We get one life, and every passing moment we will never get back again! You will never look at me with the same prespective you had,,, when I said hey.You will never brush your teeth the same way twice in your life. Ain't no rewind button on life! *Breath* I would never get that breath back, ever again. See this present moment is so precious, we have to be here... and we have to make the most of it. To live or dreams now because they all possible. 6000 years ago man created the wheel. Only six thousand years ago, first written language was created , SIX thats it! And if I may remind you the airplane is only a little over 100 years old...there was no internet 50 years ago no cell phone so don't sit here and tell me that everything that CAN be done HAS been done when we haven't been here for very long. There are dreams, there are ideas and accomplishments, that are WAITING to be DISCOVERED. That are waiting for YOU! Helen Keller was once asked: What on earth would be worse than being born blind? She Said: It would be so much worse, to be born with sight... But no vision... Why cant we have cures for every disease know to man? Why can't we have food, clean water, education for every person on this planet? Why do we have to SLAUGHTER each other to go to heaven!? The earth is already in space. (Slight Smile) We can have heaven right here right now. Just a shift in this *Indicate Brain*.. Why not? Because somebody is it was impossible? it can't be done? I'll tell you this, there's never been a statue erected for a critic. Everybody telling you how to do it, when they never did it. MORAL of the story is: Do you.be.you? And BE here NOW. They say, the average person... dies at 25 but is buried at 75. Know what that means? I'll let you figre it out. Don't let the negative in this world, get to you don't let it win... Do not go where the path may lead, but go where there is no path and leave, a trail.|
