Why don’t you BRAG more?
I am inspired by people who do BIG things and live life on their own terms. We all are, that’s why we admire historical figures like Einstein, Edison and Ghandi. We quote those people because they were (and still are) so fucking amazing and their amazingness has stood the test of time.
We admire sports figures and celebrities for their entertainment and their art. Their self-expression is revered. They courageously share their talents with us.
But what about YOU?
Why aren’t you saying things that are quotable?
Why aren’t you doing more awesome shit and telling us about it?
Are you afraid that people will think you’re vain or too into yourself if you do those things?
I think humility is an essential character trait in a human being and it certainly has it’s place, but don’t let it overshadow the bold and daring things you want to do before you die. Stop being so modest. Stop holding back.
Show us what is possible. Be an example and an inspiration to the rest of us.
Be that person who always does what they’re scared to do in pursuit of growth and happiness. Pave a new path. One we’ve never been down before. Don’t leave it to other people to “shine,” while you sit on the sidelines and watch THEM. Fuck that.
Make everyone watch YOU. Loudly and proudly, sing your song, dance your dance, and share your gifts. This world needs you.
