This should be etched in stone on every wall, of every nation in every language.

Life is choice.
Instead of blame... think about what you can do to make your life better.

I know many of you on this board are super-smart. Smarter than any other person on the planet. Your clever, witty comments are evidence of this.

Obviously you have perfect lives, and deserve it.
But for the rest of us beneath you, we all could use a reminder that we have a say in our life... and much of what our lives become is up to us.

And we will get much farther embracing an idea than we ever will picking it apart.

"If these people can make it, why not you?"

Theres a corrupt system in my way.

here's some real motivation.

"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."

I love Henry Rollins. I believe he is one of the more important voices of our generation.

YES I AM CONSERVATIVE AND STILL THINK THIS!


I'm stunned. Gladdened, but stunned.

If you ever find yourself in a position where people will pay you to give talks, you might discover how good you suddenly become at filling the air with your own voice.

NOCASH: "@bataleon27, coming from a family like that if you ever have kids of your own you will now realize the importance of saving money for their educations because you now know how hard it is to fund an education as a student these days. My parents never spoiled me or were super well off but they did put money aside for me to go to college and i think that is the best thing parents can do with their money for their kids"


This.

I'm not sure Barack Obama or Mitt Romney would agree with you.

Nope. I posted this......and then went to work. Others who commented may have done the same. What's your point?

I understand what he's saying and it's something I've often followed by even before this video. One thing I disagree with though is that, school is the only way of getting where you want. No he didn't say that you MUST have a degree but you'd find that schools and education facilities are sometimes the reason why people are put off their goals in life because it's to overbearing or teachers don't give them any motivation. You really need a degree or amazing qualification to achieve anything (as long as it's realistic).

When I posted this, I wasn't even thinking about political ideology, but now it warms my heart that I see that Conservatives and Liberals can agree on at least some issues.

@DavidStevens you sir don't know poo. You are the young person Mr. Rollins is speaking to, and you should really listen long and hard to the words he said.

Great video. I love Henry Rollins.

Anyone see the irony that this is posted on IAB, one of the biggest time-wasting, procrastination sites? Keep reaching for it IABers!

First of all Roosevelt came from meager beginnings?

@ antagonizer - Mr. Smally, that was wonderful.


@ Rawrbot You have the right to aspire to whatever you wish - not the right to succeed.
