You might as well go for your dreams…you’ll be dead soon.
(From Coach David: This video has been around for awhile, but I thought that it might be beneficial to my subscribers. My goal is to become the most watched Virtual Self Defense Expert in the world. I don’t know what will come of this goal. All I know is that I am moving forward and going for my dreams because “I might be dead soon”, so I might as well go for it!)
Steve Jobs talking about death.
“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ”
