He still has the talent, passion and leadership to show us the path… Get his new book (only 100 pages) Re-Awaken the Giant Within. AND he’s now feeding 4 million hungry and building prosthetics with a visionary 17 year-old… hard to believe he was once just a starving kid wishing he could eat a Thanksgiving meal…
MS: You have so many inspiring words of wisdom that you always share, but what’s the one piece of advice that you find right now really resonates with people, that people seem to be needing to hear, if you had to distill it?
The last one is, remember, it’s not your conditions that determine the quality of your life, it’s your vision that determines the quality of your life. So if you don’t like your life, change it. How would you change it? You decide. There’s no action without first decision. Decision is the mother or the father of action, and action is what changes your life. So, you don’t like your job? Change it. If you don’t like the relationship, change it. Change you first or you will just end up with the same problem with somebody else. If you’ve done that and it’s not the right one, change the relationship. If you don’t like your body, change it. It’s not a question of whether you can, it’s whether will you draw a line in the sand and say, “This is where I’m going. I’m not going back.” You want to stay in the islands, burn the boats. It’s amazing what people do when they have no way to back out.
So, what I would say to people is we live in a magnificent time where technology empowers us to have access to all the knowledge that exists in the world, but nothing is going to give that to you if you’re not hungry enough to step forward and educate yourself. Warren Buffett said, “The most important investment that you can make in your life is an investment in your own education, investment in yourself.” Forget any other investment, this is the one that no one can take from you and this is the one that will pay you dividends for the rest of your life.
So, I’m on a mission to help people grow and give. The more they grow the more they can give, the more life they build, the greater the quality of their life.
