Hell no…that would just be stupid! So why is this even a question that a parent would ask their child. What? Like some kid is going to go, YEP! (If so, you have bigger issues than just surviving a fall off of a bridge) Here is what your mother or father meant when they asked that question.
Are you a leader or a follower?
If you are a leader, Great! You obviously have it all figured out. I won’t even try to teach you anything.
If you are a follower, not so great. Let me clarify…I am not talking about taking orders at work, following rules or following the law for god sake. No…I am talking about you as a person. Answer these questions for me.
Please think about the questions above. Answer them for yourself and no one else. Be honest! If you are not passionate about anything, don’t have a cause, think like everyone else and follow the trends…you may be missing out on life!
“A life without passion, is a life not worth living.” Find your passion. Follow your dreams, no matter how ridiculous. Be yourself! Take on a cause and make a difference.
Not everyone can lead at everything, but everyone can lead something. Rethink what you are doing and forget about following your friends off of that bridge. Just jump first! (Figuratively, of course)
