I want to do something interesting that speaks to me. I want to add something new to this world, something that will make me less sad, and hopefully make other people around me less miserable and anxious as well.
I want to be less afraid of failure and rejection. I want to be bold, to dray myself out of the monotony of daily life, to do something authentic. I will speak up. I will pursue this path rigorously and without hesitation, to dream something big, and to lift those up around me. As Jack Ma puts it: "Don't worry about the money, money follows the people, people should follow the dreams….money will come."
The world is more beautiful and positive than it looks, and beyond the tiredness, the mistrust, and the cynical nostalgia of the past, it will get better and move forward. I want to be part of that transformation.
The MFAA 2009 mantra is: "Don't let anger separate you from the beauties of life".
