If the title of this post sounds backwards to you, it is precisely that shift of paradigm that is brought to the forefront in the video
, "Celebrate What's Right in the World" by Dewitt Jones.
While the video itself is visually stunning, it's the message beneath the images that tugs inside the mind and heart. Dewitt talks about his photographic assignments with National Geographic, their philosophy, and the imprint it made on his life. He shares impactful
, stirring vignettes that will warm your heart and make you think.
For example, how would your life be different, if rather than trying to compete to be the best IN the world, you strove to be the best FOR the world?
Or, if you wanted to keep your competitive edge in a fast-paced environment, how might you balance the best of what you DO, with the best of who you ARE?
Imagine for a moment what could happen if you were truly open to all possibilities, and if what you gleaned from those possibilities you gave back, all of it, to share with the world?
Dewitt sums up this philosophy in the video's six-word title, which reminded me of something else I had read recently. Ernest Hemingway, when challenged by friends at a pub to write a six-word life story, wrote, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." (There are hundreds of websites with examples of other six-word life stories).
I'll be thinking about my life's six word story; pondering what in my life I've learned to see because I believe in it; and watching the video again in the near future, because it rings true to me.
