Typically, this is a blog about ag stuff. Farmers, consumers, ag issues, regulation — the list goes on and on.
But this post has nothing to do with agriculture.
Recently, actor Ashton Kutcher received the “Ultimate Choice Award” at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. And rather than giving a traditional acceptance speech, Kutcher surprised everyone by delivering his road map to success.
He began by telling the audience his real name — which is Chris — and then listed three things he learned while he was still known as Chris that he felt were important to his success:
- Opportunity looks a lot like hard work
- Being sexy is being smart, generous and giving
- Building a life is better than just living a life
If you haven’t seen the video (if you haven’t, you’re one of the few considering nearly 2 million people have watched it on YouTube), catch it here.
Trust me, it’s totally worth the four and a half minutes.
Ag related or not, Kutcher’s message is a message we should all be able to get behind.
