Play it BIG

This is an image I took from a plane 6 years ago when I left home at 17 and flew to Hong Kong. I wanted to go somewhere different, to expand my horizons and to push myself out of my comfort zone. I bought a one way ticket, found a job and had the time of my life.

This picture remains for me an inspirational photo, something to remind me that there is still so much I don't know and that there is always a new opportunity awaiting discovery. Above all I think it represents boyish excitement.

Today I found a TED talk entitled "Abundance is our future", given by Peter Diamandis, founder of the X-Prize foundation. He gives such a refreshing perspective on the state of the world. Encourages us to be smarter, to strive for better and think bigger. It gives me the same boost in hope and excitement as the photo above does. I found it exceptionally motivational and thought it needed sharing, it's 16mins long but it's worth taking the time out of your busy day to watch.
