Life and Choices
Posted by djafan on Friday, September 19, 2014
I recently came across this interview of Ashton Kutcher on Ellen, talking about his speech at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. He won the Teen Choice Award for “Ultimate Choice.”
Here is the actual speech he gave.
In 2008, David won the Teen Choice Award for “Most Fanatic Fans” and “Best Smile.” In 2009, he won the Teen Choice Award for “Breakout Artist of the Year,” “Best Love Song (Crush)” and “Best Tour (with Demi Lovato).” In 2010, he won “Best American Idol Alum.”
Now it is 2014 and David is no longer a teen. He is a grown man making choices that will affect the rest of his life. I find it interesting that while listening to Ashton’s views on life and the decisions/attitudes young people should adopt to be successful, I thought of David. Listen as Ashton elaborates the three talking points of his speech:
“The first thing is about opportunity. The second thing is about being sexy. And the third thing is about living life.”
In what ways do you think this view reflects/deviates from the path David is on now?
