I'm here to plant a seed today.
A seed that will inspire you to move forward in life
with enthusiastic hearts and a clearer sense of wholeness.
The question is will that seed have a chance to take root.
Or will I be sued by Monsanto, and forced to use their seed.
Now fear is going to be a player in your life.
But you get to decide how much.
You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts worrying about the pathway to the future.
But all there will ever be is what's happening here.
In the decisions we make in this moment which are based in either love or fear.
My father could have been a great comedian, but he didn't believe that that was possible for him.
And so he made a conservative choice instead he got a safe job as an accountant.
And when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job.
And our family had to do whatever we could to survive.
I learned many great lessons from my father,
not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don't want.
So you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.
How will you serve the world ?
What do they need that your talent can provide ?
That's all you have to figure out.
As someone who's done what you're about to go and do,
I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is.
Because ultimately we're not the avatars we create.
We're not the pictures on the film stock.
We are the light that shines through.
All else is just smoke and mirrors distracting, but not truly compelling.
As far as I can tell it's just about letting the universe know what you and working toward it
while letting go of how it comes to pass.
Your job is not to figure out how it's gonna happen for you, but to open the door in your head.
And when the door opens in real life, just walk through it.
You'll come up with your own style, that's part of the fun.
Oh, and why not take a chance on faith as well.
Not religion but faith. Not hope but faith.
I don't believe in hope, hope is a beggar.
Hope walks through the fire, and faith leaps over it.
You are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world.
And after you walk through those doors today,
you will only ever have two choices. Love or fear.
Choose love, and don't ever let fear turn you against your playful heart.
Thank you so much.
