Greetings! This is the voice of Nickantony Quach,

15
00:01:21,619 –> 00:01:25,599
coming to you from the capitol of Rhode Island.

16
00:01:33,056 –> 00:01:35,309
Here, follow me,

17
00:01:35,309 –> 00:01:38,435
and check out Providence and Rhode Island

18
00:01:38,448 –> 00:01:41,468
while looking for a better way to build your ideal self.

19
00:02:14,290 –> 00:02:22,093
In 1925, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature is

20
00:02:22,093 –> 00:02:24,928
George Bernard Shaw.

21
00:02:27,221 –> 00:02:29,801
Here is what he said.

22
00:02:30,700 –> 00:02:34,386
Life is not about finding yourself.

23
00:02:35,035 –> 00:02:39,508
Life is about creating yourself.

24
00:02:41,222 –> 00:02:48,585
80 years later, in 2005, at Stanford University,

25
00:02:50,569 –> 00:02:54,340
Steve Jobs said, we should focus on,

26
00:02:54,393 –> 00:02:57,393
what you truly want to become.

27
00:02:59,917 –> 00:03:02,613
Everything else is secondary.

28
00:03:02,846 –> 00:03:11,634
Guess what, what you truly want to become is your ideal self.

29
00:03:12,212 –> 00:03:16,262
So Steve Jobs is saying that

30
00:03:16,262 –> 00:03:19,605
we should focus on our ideal self.

31
00:03:19,923 –> 00:03:23,542
What’s the difference between “creating yourself”…

32
00:03:23,542 –> 00:03:26,003
and “focusing on your ideal self”?

33
00:03:27,132 –> 00:03:32,556
We can’t talk about the difference if we don’t know what the self is.

34
00:03:34,599 –> 00:03:37,171
What is life?

35
00:03:38,088 –> 00:03:43,474
What’s the difference between life and the self?

36
00:03:45,477 –> 00:03:50,123
Quality; that means, level of excellence.

37
00:03:52,293 –> 00:03:56,740
Assessment; that means, a quality snapshot.

38
00:03:58,750 –> 00:04:03,001
Lifespan; that means, between birth and death.

39
00:04:04,826 –> 00:04:10,367
Life; that means, the assessment of lifespan activities.

40
00:04:12,170 –> 00:04:14,319
When you talk about my life

41
00:04:14,319 –> 00:04:17,430
you take a snapshot of excellence

42
00:04:17,430 –> 00:04:20,670
on my lifespan activities.

43
00:04:22,712 –> 00:04:25,544
When you look at my life,

44
00:04:25,715 –> 00:04:29,442
you make an assessment of my lifespan activities.

45
00:04:34,112 –> 00:04:38,635
When you talk about the life of President John F Kennedy

46
00:04:38,635 –> 00:04:43,335
you make an assessment of his lifespan activities.

47
00:04:44,139 –> 00:04:48,974
When you make an assessment of your lifespan activities,

48
00:04:48,974 –> 00:04:52,715
you focus on what you become after death.

49
00:04:55,570 –> 00:04:59,739
When you make an assessment of your lifespan activities,

50
00:04:59,739 –> 00:05:02,921
you’re not adding more to your life.

51
00:05:06,530 –> 00:05:09,502
When you focus on your life,

52
00:05:09,502 –> 00:05:12,492
you’re not adding more to your life.

53
00:05:12,649 –> 00:05:15,649
You’re not living your life.

54
00:05:17,130 –> 00:05:20,637
If you want to live your life,

55
00:05:20,637 –> 00:05:24,656
focus on the self of your life.

56
00:05:26,562 –> 00:05:30,353
To focus on the self of your life,

57
00:05:30,353 –> 00:05:35,001
you must first understand what the self is.

58
00:05:37,245 –> 00:05:41,720
What is the self?

59
00:05:59,104 –> 00:06:02,104
Can you hear me now?

60
00:06:02,430 –> 00:06:06,240
That’s right. That’s my voice.

61
00:06:06,941 –> 00:06:09,941
Can you see me now?

62
00:06:10,952 –> 00:06:15,415
No, you are not seeing me.

63
00:06:17,637 –> 00:06:20,577
I am NOT myself.

64
00:06:21,623 –> 00:06:24,623
I’m going to prove it.

65
00:06:25,897 –> 00:06:29,915
I’m going to prove to you that I am NOT myself.

66
00:06:37,260 –> 00:06:40,761
You see, there’s honey on my face.

67
00:06:43,933 –> 00:06:49,843
I’m not a person that walks around with honey on my face.

68
00:06:50,367 –> 00:06:55,426
Clearly, you are looking at someone else.

69
00:06:55,658 –> 00:06:57,916
I never do this before.

70
00:07:05,730 –> 00:07:13,214
Here’s another way to give you a demonstration that I am NOT myself.

71
00:07:14,052 –> 00:07:21,636
I don’t walk around like this, inside or outside.

72
00:07:22,313 –> 00:07:26,653
You are not seeing me as…

73
00:07:26,653 –> 00:07:30,667
I am NOT myself right now.

74
00:07:36,057 –> 00:07:40,397
Okay, the reason why you’re not seeing me is because…

75
00:07:40,397 –> 00:07:43,917
I’m wearing an undershirt.

76
00:07:45,970 –> 00:07:49,906
I do not go outside with an undershirt.

77
00:08:13,580 –> 00:08:21,350
Let me put on this red sweater.

78
00:08:25,970 –> 00:08:28,630
Now,

79
00:08:34,258 –> 00:08:39,994
you are seeing the self of my life.

80
00:08:43,089 –> 00:08:47,697
If I do nothing today, I will tomorrow have…

81
00:08:47,697 –> 00:08:51,132
…a default version of the self

82
00:08:51,132 –> 00:08:53,992
which is not ideal for me.

83
00:08:54,859 –> 00:08:59,382
I cannot show you my present self if yesterday…

84
00:08:59,382 –> 00:09:03,239
I did not take all the necessary steps

85
00:09:03,256 –> 00:09:06,256
to create this version of the self.

86
00:09:44,770 –> 00:09:48,551
Life is not about finding yourself.

87
00:09:51,901 –> 00:09:56,003
Life is not about creating yourself either.

88
00:09:58,960 –> 00:10:01,659
Even if you did nothing today,

89
00:10:01,659 –> 00:10:06,342
you will create a default version of the self on the next day.

90
00:10:09,079 –> 00:10:11,879
If you don’t like what you have,

91
00:10:11,879 –> 00:10:14,039
change what you do.

92
00:10:16,990 –> 00:10:20,434
If you don’t like your default version,

93
00:10:20,434 –> 00:10:23,843
create the version you truly want to become.

94
00:10:26,870 –> 00:10:31,150
If you don’t like your default version of the self,

95
00:10:31,258 –> 00:10:33,467
create your ideal self.

96
00:10:35,889 –> 00:10:41,879
Life is about creating your ideal self,

97
00:10:43,259 –> 00:10:47,515
“what you truly want to become”

98
00:10:49,740 –> 00:10:53,303
“Everything else is secondary.”

99
00:12:05,842 –> 00:12:08,842

101
