I think we all need a pep talk.
The world needs you to stop being boring. Yeah, you. Boring is easy, everybody can be boring. But you’re “gooder” _____ that. Life is not a game people. Life isn’t a cereal either. Well, it is a cereal. And if life is a game, aren’t we all on the same team. I mean, really, right? I’m on your team, be _____ my team.
This is life people, you’ve got air coming _____ your nose! You’ve got a heartbeat! That means it’s time to do something!
A poem. “Two roads diverged in the woods, and I took the road less traveled…” AND IT HURT MAN!Really bad. ROCKS! THORNS! And GLASS! My pants broke. NOT COOL ROBERT FROST. But what if there really were two paths? I want to be on the one that leads _____ awesome.
It’s like the dude, Journey said: “Don’t stop believing.” unless your dream is stupid. Then you should get a better dream. I think that’s how it goes. Get a better dream and keep going, keep going, keep going and keep going.
What if Michael Jordan had quit? Well he did quit. But he retired, yeah, that’s it, he retired. But before that, _____ high school, what if he quit when he didn’t make the team? He would have never made Space Jam and I love Space Jam. What would be your Space Jam? What will you create to make the world awesome?
Nothing if you keep sitting there. That’s why I’m talking to you today. This is your time. This is my time. It’s our time. We can make everyday better _____ each other. If we’re all on the same team, let’s start acting like it
We’ve got work to do. We can cry _____ it or we can dance about it. We were made to be awesome. Let’s get _____ there. I don’t know everything, I’m just a kid. But I do know this, it’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance. So get _____ it.
You’ve just been pep talked. Create something that will make the world awesome. Play ball.
Now, write your own version of a pep talk to give to someone.
