thanks for the article
why not in the Japanese :I ?
THANK GOD FOR YOUR WORDS JARED!
Wow. Moving words. Words full of truth. Thank you
This is Jared Joseph Leto … We pushed for LIFE.
I know what I want to be. I do not mind to be in the crowd. I just want a job as a PA, I love it but in Spain these days we only have a few opportunities… F**** politicians, F**** corruption! I will have to leave my country because here I do not have a future!
<3 powerful words <3
the truth about this is than some of us want to be on the other side of the pulpit directing our attention and service to anyone who can help. giving support to the disadvantaged masses and bringing happiness to many souls desdichadas with love and surrender. I think that this would be the best way to love and be loved. Thank you < 3
to be in the audience because I love to learn. To be the audience it’s the possibility to critisise what the leader says! You can choose to follow or not the spokerman’s way. Le LIBRE ARBITRE
I agree with thing written but there are so many things missing. You see, you are only striving for wild survival, just like beasts. I think we have evolved enough that your post is missing at least two things.
1st one would be the importance of human touch. I met many people in my life and I am smart enough to learn from others. Just work and momental fulfillment are not enough for a really full life. With more stress (being lonely is a stress itself), it impacts health in a big way. Yay pharma!
Also, there is absolutely nothing wrong in being on the other side of the hall, to be a listener. We can learn a lot from each other and collaborate. The feeling of superiority means way too much to 90% of population.
I think past experiences should teach us, that we do not have to fight for everything, we can achieve a lot more (in many ways such as a happy life and bigger productivity) by helping each other and being honest. Sadly from what I see in younger generations, money and a good position mean more to people than feeling okay with themselves. When people reach their thirties their priorities change (or at least they want to change them).
There is no right way to live in this world so maybe all thoughts are pointless.
It’s easy to feel lost in this world. Change of perspective? I hope so.
I really like what you said. I also find that there are more than these two sides. Therefore, I try to combine both. It’s not easy, but not impossible.
The first one is me by nature. But sometimes I become partly the second one because I can be so diplomatic that I don’t want too hurt someone’s feelings. Firing someone becomes so hard for me too do. Because I know how hard someone works too acheive things. Plus I don’t like conflict :/ if I say and do the right things with tact. I tend too be ok. I’m a natural born leader and I feel it Abd I’ve been told I’m a good boss because I see the two sides of things and I handle pressure well. But I do isolate myself allot because I do have shy tendencies which makes me come across like a bitch but I’m far from that. I’m no follower at all never have been never will be. I don’t like the back seat. I like the front. Bless u ur such a sweet man honestly. As I’ve said your heart is bigger than your existance. Yes your weird and odd but you are a beautiful man. That’s why I don’t ever mind saying the things I do too you. Because my gut instincts tell me you desreve it. have a great day and week yay vid week. Gook luck with it all XO hugs&XOXO yeah I do like U I appreciate you always&forever . Kick some major ass with that vid BC come out of your cage my friend. Your so easy too talk too.
It’s true. I agree with that.
Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it.
Entanglement increases in direct proportion to the attainment of “more”. Be careful what you wish for. Keep it simple and in balance.
You’re talking as pastor @ChrisDuranMCD. I think I should never have followed that person on twitter.The pastor Chris Duran speaks with his mouth full he was born rich. Do not know what it is to have needs. You do not know. I have everything I need just the air I breathe. Just that!!
You were at that conference. Isaiah 55:3 and 7
thank you! its really inspirig! i ♥! i’ll do my best.
Who has what he really wanted in life? I think the most people wish always precisely what they have not.
I only can speak for me, but I always try to be a good person, I try to be polite and I encounter others with respect because I want that they treat me with respect. I believe this is the basic requirement for the coexistence with others. I do not care whether I am a leader or not. That’s not important to me. I think it is important to value the little things in everyday life and not just think of myself.
“Meine Freiheit hört dort auf, wo die des anderen beginnt” Immanuel Kant

perfect timing for this message for me as usual..thank you for posting this..
beurk. manipulation. disgusting merchandising. so we shouldfight our little tiny way to expect TO BE… what about TO DO ?
what about coop ?
i often go to lessons where the leader makes less money than me. and as the manager i am, i found noyhing more important than to know and pay attention to each personn i meet.
don’t you agree jared?
Thank u very much, I just turned 40 years old and am in a deep existential crisis. Do you think anything is possible? I think now start again…Marshugs
Sorry, can’t get past the beach, hammock, palm trees, white sand, aqua surf, vivid blue sky in one direction, lush tropical mountains and waterfalls in the other. No matter what way I look at it, it looks pretty good to me.
I want to do nothing but impossible, money money…
This is so timely,major crisis of confidence ,I only wish I had half the bravery I had as a five year old.I went to source to read the rest and pictures three and five produced a visceral feeling in me of fear and a definite feeling of that is not what I want,I can’t help it ,letting life happen to me,having every day the same it would bore and frustrate me.Ever since I was little in a situation I have to take over,I hate when things are out of control,in my life or my loved ones lives,even in wider terms of social justice.Right now I know I’m not where I want to be,no doing what I should be doing,I know I”m shirking from what I could and should be and I know I could take what people have said to me as ” The easy road”,but it wouldn’t be the easy road for me,because I would only be feigning happiness and I would feel I wasted my life.Different things and lives make people happy and whatever that is for each different person I think you know it deep down inside of you since you were born.It’s like lately the things I want the most terrify me the most because they are the only things I care about failing at or messing up but that is a stupid attitude because I will never get what I want if frozen by fear of failure.I would feel like I was drowning if I stay doing what I ‘m doing.In fact I have put things to do in front of me this week that will involve me swallowing my pride somewhat but it has to be done.This is rambling,these are not even the right words but ya it is time to be braver and face up to things I have to change.
It’s amazing of you to even take the time out of your busy day to help others achieve their dreams as you have,very unselfish and the mark of a true leader.
Such a great article. Thank you for sharing.
ok, everyone needs to be a fighter in life, try to change your life for the better, but many factors affect individual, there is no definition, it’s a risk, but the persistence of some much more powerful,There are a lot of unhappy and powerless to achieve their dreams
i can only go off what i know is fact so many strive for power with no thought of who they stand on to the point we create the lost and forgotten. i just wanna have their back because some people need help creating a dream and that just brakes my heart…
Thank you for sharing!
sometimes a man knows what he wants out of life, sometimes he all the time (life) looking for answers hmm maybe easier;) Sometimes man has a vocation, sometimes not …;)
I know that I will be a great man (this means woman) I been a STAR ), because I have “everything”, people loves me and etc
p.s. but i must waiting for a good moment;))
Thank You thank You;))
When I was in college I wrote that poem. It wasnt any good, had the easy rhymes and all, but that’s beside the point. It was about how I wanted my life to be. Well, I wanted it to be an adventure. Loads and loads of adventures. And the most important thing was the ending: nothing is impossible-it became my motto.If you think Im gonna say now that it was just childish and naive- you’re wrong. I actually stayed true to my manifesto and life was so wonderful, so exciting. Like a reward for believing that it can be so. Went to places I wanted to see, did things I wanted to do. And no-my parents didnt sponsor me, my father never forgave me for leaving, so everything I did I did without anyone’s help. Wasnt easy but I wouldnt have it anyother way.
If you want to live like this its not always fun and games. It gets really scary. Like”I dont know how I survived” kind of scary. Not a metaphor, either. So you learn things about yourself. And you dont feel like you have to prove anything to yourself or to the world. Sometimes you are the leader. Dont like it much but sb has to do it, its about responsibility. Sometimes you follow sb’s lead. It doesnt really matter.
One thing for sure: if you only think about it in the context of how it translates into your positoin in the world, into what people think of you,how much money you earn you can forget one important point – you’re human. And the most basic of human needs is to love and be loved.
Today was the first day of my career change,it’s taken 20yrs to believe in my dream.Don’t wait 20yrs to follow your dream,it’s Heavenly on this side
mmm…somebody is feeling well today
Thanks for sharing! All my life I’ve been told I’m thick and stupid and i wished. I got rid of you before you were born from the person who is supposed to love you the most my mother! Always wanted to travel the world, go to see gigs and photograph things. All things I would’ve loved to have done when younger also learnt to drive. But basically even at my age I’m still under the thumb. Sorry for the hot of a rant. But I say to people go out and do things, travel etc.
In love perception is everything. I was madly in love with someone
whom I perceived to be everything he’s NOT. Now the reality shows
me, & I perceive him to be the most un-loving person I’ve ever encountered and I’m left to wonder ‘how could my original perception
be so far off’ as it was. There is a correct perception, and false ones.
A truly wise person perceives the truth first.
I’m always in love. principle. just so. why not. to me it does not hurt. hate harms, not love.
Okay…. Thanks… I will choose / have chosen that free quite near the nature thing… =O)
My comment is a short version of a long story – and written in my not-so-good English… And propably sounds very stupid… =’OD
Not propaply… probably… and actually I’m SURE it sounds…
Oh my goodness… XOO
Jared or someone. Could you please delete my comments, so I could write a brand new one…
I sound like an idiot……
velcome in my life :

Hope can do nothing for you! Be as perseverant as a spider! A spider never gives up its rapid climbing up again after being knocked down!!
mmm interesting..:D… hugs .JS
I just need to be loved for eternity.
You can make dew into diamonds
Or pacify the lions
But you know you can never make me love you more!
You can make me dance to order
I love how I’m drawn and quartered
But you know you can never make me love you more!
How much water is in the ocean?
How many plants are there on earth?
How many birds are in the sky?
That is just how much I love ya then

“Tonight when you look up at the stars, try and count them all. I miss you that much. When you go to the beach, try to count every grain of sand. I trust you that much. When you go in the water, try and count each drop of water in the ocean. I need you that much. When your heart beats, try and count each and every beat for a day. I love you that much.”
How to let go our old beliefs it’s sometimes the hardest part .. but when I ve begin to listen to myself I felt much better .. I m on my way ..thank’s for sharing
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. -Henry David Thoreau
you can and should do both…..gain knowlegde and share it.you could be a speaker today,and in the crowd tommorow……but as far as the money thing is concerned thats just luck and because of the way the monetary system works.its doesnt mean the rich work harder……the hardest working people in the world are most often the poorest doing the worst jobs,the backbone of society….whos gonna do these jobs if we all have our dream careers??…we’d all need to do a bit of them each as well as our dream job…. and the poor of this world dont have the luxury or opportunity that most middle class do.most people are born into money and certain lifestyles and career opportunitys.very few poor and working class escape into the middle class….even fewer into the upper…..the system is delibaretly designed in this manner so that only a few(in relation to the human population)ever will be rich and feel powerful……break down class divides,ban cheap labour globally and you’ll see the potential of all humanity in it truest forms…..people wont be hindered by money anymore,or value thier or others worth on how much money your making,the clothes you wear,car you drive blah blah blah….changing your perspective is always good but peoples circumstances have to be taken into account too,personal,political,physical,financial etc….in all honestly this text is a little patronising and pretentious.
I totally agree.
mmm…David singing Respect
Ha hahahaha Your fun that was wow a certain kind of blast.:)
it is a number, u see
what you want!
baybe, I got!
just a little bit!

The one thing I’ve learnt in life, is if you wait for the perfect time to do something, it will never happen. That perfect time doesn’t exist, don’t wait, just do it.
