Cool messages I've heard recently/read sometime in my life that I wanted to share:
Martin Luther King Jr. didn't need Facebook, Twitter or email to have thousands show up to his "I have a dream" speech. (Simon Sinek- check him out in the video below)
Picasso painted thousands of paintings. You can probably only think of three of his very famous ones. (Seth Godin)
Anne Frank was 13 when she began her diary. Bill Gates was 19 when he cofounded Microsoft. Shakespeare was (probably) 31 when he wrote Romeo and Juliet. Mother Teresa was 40 years old when she founded the Missionaries of Charity. Jack Nicklaus was 46 when he shot 65 to win the Masters. Nelson Mandela was 71 when he was released from prison and went on to become president of South Africa. Michelangelo was 72 when he designed the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. (Matthew Kelly)
What does this all mean?
You don't need the internet or 700 Facebook friends to really touch someone's life.
You won't create something great on your first try.
You don't need to be a certain age to do something great. You aren't too old or too young.
Go forth, my children, and do good things!! Or just get off the internet and do SOMETHING.
*On that note: check out this girl's technology ban video. Hilarious and a great idea.
