The story of Dr. Randy Pausch's life is very powerful. Here is a man that never gave up on achieving his childhood dreams -- regardless of how old he became or where he was at in his life. He is inspiring to everyone that hears his story. He continued to live life even as he learned that the cancer inside his body would be ending his life.
Here are a few of my personal quotes / lessons that Dr. Pausch shared:
"If you don't achieve your dreams you still get a lot by trying for them."
"Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want."
"The brick walls that are in our way are there for a reason. They are not there to keep us out. They are there to give us a way to show how much we want it."
"The importance of people verus things."
"You need to decide early on if you are a Tigger or an Eeyore."
"I am choosing to have fun."
"Live with integrity."
"Just tell the truth."
"When you screw up, apologize." "I'm sorry. It was my fault. How do I make it right?"
"No one is pure evil. If you wait long enough, they will show you their good side."
"You can choose to take your finite time, energy and effort complaining or you can spend it playing the game hard."
This video is so inspiring that I wanted to add it to my channel. I'm posting this video as a fan of a man that never gave up. In my opinion, you may not have a heart beat if you are not motivated to go after your goals / dreams after watching this video.
