I recently came across the story of Carnegie Mellon Professor, Randy Pausch, who gave his last lecture before students on September 18th to inspire them to continue to embrace life to the fullest. Although he has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and only has a few months to live, he intends to live every day to the fullest with joy in his heart.
He mentions in his talk about looking at your perspective on life, and to choose whether you're going to be a "Tigger" or an "Eoyore". Our perception of the world is based upon our choices. When viewing the world, think about how you are perceiving it.
Here is the short clip from the Wall Street Journal:
Carnegie Mellon is providing Randy Pausch's entire lecture called "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" in the public domain as his legacy to the world. The 1 hour and 25 minute lecture is an inspiration. We should all look with hope within our lives and remember the blessing we have on this earth.
When you look at your life, do you consider yourself a "Tigger" or an "Eoyore"?
What can you do differently everyday to look at your life with hope and promise?
Can you recapture your childhood dreams and make them a reality today?
