Ashton Kutcher’s speech at the recent Teen Choice Awards was an awesome way to kick off the work week.
Inspiring Ashton Kutcher Speech
His speech was for the teens at the awards, but it touched this 30-something’s heart too. Watch and be inspired.
Ashton Kutcher Speech
This Ashton Kutcher speech was so motivating, so inspiring, so optimistic. It was a much-needed boost to a day that was wearing me out. So encouraging! Pass thing along to your kids, whether they’re kids, tweens, teens, twentysomethings, thirtysomethings… Pass this along to friends, especially those who need a picker upper this week and a refreshed perspective on life.
Three lessons to remember: Build a life. Find your opportunities. Always be sexy. I hope the kids of today (and whoever else is watching the video!) take his words to heart.
I like the last tip best of all. If you haven’t watched the video, sexy isn’t the perfect body or oozing with sex appeal. It’s being intelligent, being smart, and using this gift well. I believe this “always be sexy” is what will help you with the other tips — find your opportunities and build a life.
My favorite parts of his speech were the following:
I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work. I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. And every job I had was a steppingstone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job. And so opportunities look a lot like work.
The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart and being thoughtful, and being generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don’t buy it. Be smart, be thoughtful, and be generous.
Everything around us that we call life was made up by 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. Find your opportunities, and always be sexy.
One of the best parts, if not the best one, was when he pointed at his head and said “Always be sexy.” I’m taking this Ashton Kutcher speech to heart. It’s definitely one of the most inspiring, encouraging, one of the sexiest speeches I’ve ever heard.
