I recently watched these remarkable videos on YouTube, and I’d love to share them with you:
1. Zach Sobiech‘s story is so inspiring and receives so much attention not because he was dying, but because of his attitude to LIVING.
2. Meg Jay’s message very powerfully reminds me that we get only one chance to live each day to the fullest!
3. Sir Ken Robinson’s views on education are such common sense – I cannot wait until our education system shifts dramatically in this direction! Our world will be amazing!
My lessons from these are:
1. Zach’s story inspires me to appreciate every second I am alive – life is a beautiful, fragile, canvas on which I create my reality
2. Meg’s point ‘Don’t be defined by what you didn’t know or didn’t do. You’re deciding your life right now.’
3. Sir Ken’s metaphor about a sterile desert and education: “Death Valley isn’t dead, it is only dormant – Right beneath the surface are seeds of possibility, waiting for the right conditions – a rare rain shower transforms the whole valley into a carpet of flowers. How does this relate to education: The real role of leadership in education is “climate control” – creating a climate of possibility for the students to flourish in.”
Enjoy being inspired by these, and I invite you to inspire others!
