"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"--Mary Oliver
"Nobody can prevent you from choosing to be exceptional." --Mark Sanborn, The Fred Factor
We look at education as a way to certify We can get paid, instead of the never-ending building process it truly is.
We let society--usually our families--determine Our careers, muzzling Our desires under the fears they cower to.
We let The Fools strip away Our sense of nation, Our rightful claim to dignity, Our money and Our Future and allow these Fools to place absurdly narrow limits on Our development.
We can choose Our own education, without restrictions, aimed at developing Our skills instead of buckling under an unjustly-imposed "need" to be put in a box while still alive.
We can shun society's fears and accept that the only true path to developing Our fullest potential lies in acknowledging Our dreams as goals...and pursuing them relentlessly.
We can tear down The Fools' false walls of limitations as We tear them down from their gilded outhouses. Their time never was; their actions were never aimed at Our Future, only theirs.
Each of Us has a Life, a single moment in Time that will never be again. Why give it away to Fools, a box, a collection of fears, a paltry "reward" in exchange for a Life?
Look around you. Look at what accepting this "exchange" creates: mediocrity. The Fools wallow in the vaccuum mediocrity leaves, the collective yielding of will, hope and striving for excellence is the space The Fools need to harvest from Us to their piggish heart's content.
You have but a single Life. Don't give it up. Don't give away your irreplaceable Life for dirt clods. Nothing--nothing--can stand in the way of your excellence, if you choose to pursue it. But it won't happen by itself: you have to choose excellence. It is by far the harder road, but it is the only road that leads to Your--to Our--Best Future.
