So Live Your Life….

Im somewhat of a quote collector. Here is a poem from Tecumseh that inspired me. If you have not yet seen Act Of Valor, I encourage you to do so.

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”

~ Chief Tecumseh (Poem from Act of Valor the Movie)

    Great share buddy, so much truth to this quote. Live each day as an adventure, as a fleeting moment when we’re never promised another. Drink it all in. This is our theme for the upcoming Compete For Your Life tour, and I love seeing other people encourage folks to take life for all it’s worth. Keep encouraging, see you in Louisiana soon!

    Love this brother. It’s true, live each day to its fullest, taking on the adventure mindset and realizing to get everything you can in today because tomorrow may never come. It’s the mindset behind the upcoming Compete For Your Life tour and I love seeing you encourage others with this. Keep doing the great work, see you in Lafayette soon!
