1. Opportunity looks a lot like hard work (Kutcher shared a story about working hard all is life and being grateful).
2. Be sexy - he related this to being smart, being thoughtful and being generous. He encouraged viewers to look past marketing, advertisements and what people/media were telling us 'sexy' was.
3. Build a life - don't just live it.
This speech for me is right up there with Ken Robinsons creativity speech, it moved me as a mother, as an educator, as a community member, as a wife. Yes!! Forget the stereotypes, forget what people say you should do and build your own life. This resonated with me in so many ways (I have discussed my thinking about building your own life before in another post).
My husband and I sat down with our four children and dissected and discussed what this meant for them. Our younger children hadn't quite picked up on the messages and giggled when the word 'sexy' was used. But we used this as an opportunity to explain to them the importance of hard work, goal setting and dreaming big.
