Really Achieving Your Childhoold Dreams

Here are a few quotes from Randy Pausch about lessons he learned. This is good advice to share with students to encourage them to pursue their own career and personal goals.

  • “When you[‘re] screwing up and nobody is saying anything to you anymore that means they gave up.”
  • “Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.”
  • “You obviously don’t know where the bar should be and you’re only going to do them a disservice by putting it anywhere.”
  • “The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.”

    Thanks for sharing your story, Bethany. I left the above video comment for you.

  2. When I was kid all I wanted to be was an archeologist like Indian Jones. My Dad said I could do, but would have to pay for school myself. SO I went in another field. When I asked my Dad why years later he said, “Of course, we would have paid for you to go to college, I just wanted to see if you wanted it bad enough to do it on your own.”

    Sometimes I need a brick wall to show me what I really want.
