It was my first day of my sophomore year of college – the day my life was forever changed. That was the day that I wandered into Darren’s class and heard this story for the very first time. You may wonder how a little story can have such a tremendous impact on someone’s life; but prepare yourself (yes I’m talking to YOU) because today is your day.
It has been five years since I first heard this story, and I have heard it many times since, but the effect it has is always the same. It’s funny how five minutes can change everything you’ve ever thought you knew about yourself and about your life. This story forces you to evaluate – and I mean *really* evaluate – every choice, big or small, that you make. I think that it is absolutely necessary that everyone has the opportunity to experience the impact that this story can have.
If you want to live a life that you are proud of, a life you’ll be proud to tell your future children (or maybe not) of, then you MUST read this story. It is NEVER too late to become the person you have always wanted to be. The only person who is holding you back from your dreams is you – and after hearing this story those excuses won’t be quite as convincing as they once were.
Thank you *SO* much for posting this story Darren, it will most definitely have an impact on each and every one of its readers. And YOU (yes you!) you should thank him too! This is your story after all! Now don’t make the same mistake twice, read this story and read it well… this is your last chance!
