excerpt of Nike ad
As a kid I struggled with finding my own identity. It wasn't until my six grade teacher gave the class an excerpt from a Nike's ad that i would forever see things differently.
I find myself reading this whenever i need guidance, I hope this can be a gift for you as much as it was for me...
Life isn’t about keeping score.
It’s not a competition.
Life is not about how many people you’ve dated or who you’ve kissed.
It’s not a popularity contest.
Life is an about your shoes, your hair, the shade of your skin, or where you
go to school.
In fact, it’s not about grades, clothes, money, cars, or houses.
It’s not even about which colleges upset you or which do not.
Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends or if you are alone.
It’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are.
Life just isn’t about all that.
But life is about who you love and who you hurt.
It's not about how you feel about yourself.
Life is about the trust people place in you, the happiness you live with, and
the compassion you show others.
It's about sticking up for your friends and replacing
inner hate with true love.
Life is about avoiding jealousy overcoming ignorance and
It's about what you say and what you mean.
It's about seeing people for who they really are and not what they have.
The same way you want to be seen.
Most of all, it is about choosing to use your life to teach someone else in a
way that could never have been achieved by anyone else.
What is your life about?
You have to choose.
It's your life.
