Randy Pausch

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They are there to stop the other people!”
~Randy Pausch
The Last Lecture
If you are not familiar with Randy Pausch, you should really aquaint yourself with him.
For simplicity, I have added the Last Lecture to this blog.
Yes, it is long, over an hour.
But it is a stunningly important message to hear.
I was introduced to The Last Lecture through a college class of mine. A communications class, actually.
I have never forgotten the impact of this lecture.
I think of Randy’s quotes often.
I have watched the video many times.
I have read his book many times.
Randy Pausch was a man who knew what living life was all about.
Randy Pausch was a dreamer, but more importantly, he was a doer!
Randy went after his dreams.
Even before his cancer diagnosis.
Randy knew how to dream and how important those dreams were.
Randy is another person who is the epitome of what Inspire the Light is all about.
Randy did not stop to worry about the brick walls in his way, he just figured out a way to achieve his childhood dreams, which were really his life’s dreams.
I cannot encourage you enough to view the video clip above.
Take the time, with an open heart and mind, to hear what Randy is telling you.
You can achieve your dreams.
You can have the life you want.
But start now, because:
“Time is all you have and you may find one day that you have less than you think.”
