WHAT IS YOUR GOAL IN LIFE THEY ASK: MY REPLY? TO INSPIRE.

  • Mood:

 

 

Life is short.

We dance on this great stage for a mere moment and the moment is gone. Ask yourself: What is my life about? What is the purpose, the goal? What mark will I leave? If any at all...

I have been asked that question many times by many people: What are your goals in life?

Some might reply: To become rich. Others will say: To be famous. While others will say:  I want to buy a resort in Costa Rica and retire by the time I am 45.

I have no such goals. My future is floating out there, in the great unknown. I trust God will lead my path where He wants it to go. And that is good enough for me.

But if there is one thing I know, is that my goal in life is to INSPIRE.

So when I get emails from people who say: "You've inspired me to finally sit down and write that book I have been talking about writing for the past 8 years" or even "After seeing your teaser, I went in my garage and finally got the motivation to finish building my roadster. I just took it for it's first spin"

Or even: "It's snowing here but after watching your teaser, I put the wheels back on my model A hotrod, got it off the jacks and just HAD TO DRIVE IT. Snow or not, I was in heaven".

Others have emailed: "You have inspired me to finally go into production with my film. I didn't think it could be done, you know, making a film by yourself without financial backing. But after reading yor story I decided that I too, will take the leap of faith. I am going to dedicate my film to you"

 (yop, he said that).

Today I got this very very cute email from a fan in Northern Europe. I thought I'd share it with you. Which goes to show that inpiration comes in many shapes, and one of them is.......

LEGOS?????

Check it out (it's way cool)

"Hi Faith,
 
I just recently saw the trailers of your movie Deuce Of Spades. And can't wait to see the whole movie.
It inspired me to build a hot rod out of Lego; http://www.flickr.com/photos/_zenn/4811826883/
