It’s Friday and I needed some words of inspiration this morning — have you seen Chris Ashton Kutcher’s speech at the 2013 Teen Choice awards?
“Opportunities look a lot like work.”
“The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart… be smart, be thoughtful and be generous.”
“Everything around us that we call life was made up of people that are no smarter than you. And you can build your own things, you can build your own life that other people can live in. So build a life — don’t live one, build one.”
I’ve never thought of Ashton Kutcher as anything more than Kelso from That 70’s Show (unfair, I know) but this speech is one of the best things I’ve heard in a while. It’s honest, it’s real, and I think it’s says something when the sexiest man ever tells kids that the sexiest thing in the world is BEING SMART. I think statements like the ones above can give a teenager (or twenty-something trying to find their way) a lot to think about. It can give them the little push they need to start their life, to build their life.
So, on this lovely Friday, do like Ashton does :
“Find your opportunity and always be sexy.”
