“In the End, We Are Our Choices. Build Yourself a Great Story.”

Jeff Bezos, speaking to Princeton’s Baccalaureate Class of 2010:

I suspected I would always be haunted by a decision to not try at all. After much consideration, I took the less safe path to follow my passion, and I’m proud of that choice….

When you are 80 years old, and in a quiet moment of reflection narrating for only yourself the most personal version of your life story, the telling that will be most compact and meaningful will be the series of choices you have made. In the end, we are our choices. Build yourself a great story.''

I am waiting for my great story.


  1. This is so true. My greatest fear is not trying!

  2. my my greatest fear is i don't want to fail.. i did take the path of my dreams but what next is the big question....
