Make your life an exclamation, not an explanation

It’s funny how much wisdom you’ll find trapped inside a fortune cookie. Usually, it’s not very much. But this time around, I was very intrigued by the comment and decided to keep the slip.

“Make your life an exclamation, not an explanation”

I can’t stress how important this is. There are 6 billion people in the world. And it is the duty of every single one to live their life to the fullest to the best of their abilities. So that years from now, you sit back on that old rocking chair with the feeling that you had truly accomplished something in your life.

I would like to shed the light on two wonderful individuals I have met at Drake University. These young gentlemen are truly out there to make an exclamation of their lives.

Steve Amos
With the help of his brother and a couple of close friends, Steven saw a vision and created it. Out of his vision spawned Student Films Across America, a student film festival that is travelling across the country, showcasing movies that have been sent in for judging. He has spent a year of time and effort putting this event together. I attended today’s screenings in New York, and I was impressed. Here is Steve, between his sophomore and junior years in college, travelling in a van across the United States, screening films for a festival he organized. Talk about an exclamation with a capital !.

Check out Student Films Across America and see if you can catch any dates in your city.

Andy Drish

If you know this person, you will understand that there isn’t a complete set of words to describe how inspirational he is to others. Andy has not only set up a group which helps underclassmen with their business image, but currently writes a blog. His vision is to write a book and travel around the country and the world, speaking the wise words he preaches on his page.

People like Andy are remarkable. He will definitely make his life an exclamation. Check him out at Connecting in College

These young gentlemen are fine examples.

So how are you going to make your life an exclamation?
