VIDEO: Motivation from The Last Lecture

An Inspirational Video Pick from SparkGuy
  -- By Chris ''SparkGuy'' Downie, SparkPeople founder and CEO
Hi Everyone,

I saw this video and thought it was powerful enough to share with all of our SparkPeople members. It's a 10-minute clip from “Oprah” where a college professor gives his last lecture because he's dying from pancreatic cancer soon. In addition to the great lessons he shares in the lecture, his passion and courage to do this inspires me to live every day to the fullest.

Sometimes it's hard to take a step back and realize what's most important to us in life. I hope you take something from this too that you can use to help reach your goals.

Chris “SparkGuy” Downie
