My Journey with Jon Acuff - Inspiration & A Challenge

I don't intend for this to turn into a "My Journey with Jon Acuff" blog, but that's kind of where I'm at now.

Today's 'homework' is to post a video that inspires you. I chose one from Good Will Hunting for a couple reasons.
1 - I'm starting to realize the importance of having someone in your life that challenges you. Someone who will keep you accountable and push you when you're settling for less than being awesome.
2 - I can identify with Will. I'm a reader, but it stops there. I read a lot of blogs, books and articles, but seldom act on it "until the time is right". In a sense I'm overfed and out of shape intellectually.
3 - Like Will I tend to see the negatives.
4 - I get sarcastic and mean when I'm challenged.
5 - I don't know what I want to do, so I blow smoke and shovel it as a defense mechanism.

This clip (and the film) inspires me to live for more.
To do the work
To chase after awesome.
To drop the B.S. and really take a look inside and ask if I'm living true to myself.

Careful, there are a couple swears if that sort of stuff bothers you.

  1. Such a great clip. I love your honesty here too. It's tough when we don't know what exactly it is that we are shooting for. But, keep pushing forward and take steps. Experiment. Have fun with learning who you really are. Keep moving forward, even if it's small steps.
