I came across a YouTube video of Ashton Kutcher accepting an award at the 2013 Teen Choice Award, and his speech was too inspiring not to share with all of you.
Here’s the Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuBSRC1zpHw
Ashton was telling the audience about what he learned from his role as Steve Jobs in the new movie ‘Jobs.’
He said that the 3 most important things in the world are:
2. Being Sexy
3. Building a Life
He defined opportunity as hard work. If something is difficult then most likely it’s an opportunity you shouldn’t pass up.
Being sexy, doesn’t have to do with looks. Ashton stated that the sexiest thing in the world is being “smart, thoughtful, caring, and generous.” When you have these qualities you can do, be, and create anything you set your mind to.
And finally building a life. We are programmed to follow the rules, to go to college, get a job, get married, and have kids. Sure you can play it safe and go by what we are raised to know, but Ashton went on to say that “everything around us that we call life was made up by people no smarter than you.” So why not step outside the box and create your own life, create your own world. “Build a life, don’t live one.”
When it comes to social media it’s encouraged to step outside the box.
My tip for you today, is to be different.
Show the world who you are, and why you are special.
People in the social world see thousands of profiles, and pages, and blogs, and websites, everyday.
Give them a reason to stop and look at yours.
Have a unique cover photo, or profile picture that doesn’t just show who or what you are, but paints a picture.
Share an inspiring video.
Post a quote every once in awhile that speaks to you.
Engage in conversation with people that have similar interests.
But most importantly find out what it is that makes you special, and share it with the world.
Thanks for reading!
Look forward to your comments!
