Prince Ea - Everybody Dies But Not Everybody Lives

English

Everybody Dies But Not Everybody Lives

It is not death most people are afraid of.
 
It is getting to the end of life, only to realize that you never truly lived.
 
NEVER TRULY LIVED
 
There was a study done, a hospital study on 100 elderly people. Facing death, close to their last breath they were asked to reflect about their life's biggest regret.
 
BIGGEST REGRET
 
Nearly all of them said they regretted not the things they did but the things they didn't do.
 
DIDN'T DO
 
The risks they never took. The dreams they didn’t pursue.
 
DIDN’T PURSUE
 
I ask you, will your last words be "If only I had..."?
Hey, you! Wake up!
 
HEY YOU
 
Why do you exist? Life is not meant to simply work, wait for the weekend and pay rent. No, no I don’t know much. But I know this: every person on this earth has a gift.
 
GIFT
 
And I apologize to the black community. But I can no longer pretend...
Martin Luther King?
 
MARTIN LUTHER KING
 
That man never had a dream. That dream had him.
 
PEOPLE DON'T CHOOSE DREAMS
DREAMS CHOOSE THEM
 
See people don't choose dreams, dreams choose them.
So the question I'm getting to is, do you have the courage to grab the dream that picked you?
 
COURAGE
 
That befits you and grips you? Or will you let it get away and... slip through?
 
You know, I learned a fact about airplanes the other day. Now this was, this was so surprising, see...
I was talking to a pilot and he told me that many of his passengers think planes are dangerous to fly in. But he said,"Actually, it is a lot more dangerous for a plane to stay on the ground." I said, "What? Like how does that sound?"
Well, he said, he said, "Because on the ground the plane starts to rust,
 
RUST
MALFUNCTION
WEAR
 
malfunction and wear, much faster than it ever would if it was in the air." As I walked away I thought, "Yeah, makes total sense." Because planes were built to live in the skies. And every person was built to live out the dream they have inside. So it is, perhaps, the saddest loss to live a life on the ground without ever taking off.
 
TAKING OFF
 
See, most of us are afraid of the thief that comes in the night to steal all of our things. But there is a thief in your mind who is after your dreams. His name is doubt.
 
DOUBT
 
If you see him, call the cops and keep him away from the kids because he is wanted for murder. For he has killed more dreams than failure ever did. He wears many disguises and like a virus will leave you blinded, divided and turn you into a... "kinda".
 
BLINDED
DIVIDED
 
“KINDA”
 
See kinda is lethal. You know what kinda is? There is a lot of kinda people, you kinda want a career change, you kinda want to get straight A’s, you kinda want to get in shape. Simple math, no numbers to crunch. If you kinda want something, then you will kinda get the results you want.
 
What is your dream? What ignites that spark? You can't kinda want that, you got to want it with every part of your whole heart. Will you struggle? Yeah, yeah… you will struggle, no way around it. You will fall many times, but who's counting? Just remember, there's no such thing as a smooth mountain.
 
SMOOTH MOUNTAIN
 
If you want to make it to the top then there are sharp ridges that have to be stepped over. There will be times you get stressed and things you get depressed over. But let me tell you something. Steven Spielberg was rejected from film school three times. Three times. But he kept going.
 
KEPT GOING
 
The television execs fired Oprah. Said she was unfit for TV. But she kept going.
Critics told Beyoncé that she couldn’t sing. She went through depression. But she kept going.
 
KEPT GOING
 
STRUGGLE & CRITICISM
 
Struggle and criticisms are prerequisites for greatness. That is the law of this universe and no one escapes it. Because pain is life but you can choose what type: Either the pain on the road to success. Or the pain of being haunted... with regret.
 
REGRET
 
You want my advice? Don't think twice.
 
DON'T THINK TWICE
 
We have been given a gift that we call life.
 
LIFE
 
So don't blow it. You are not defined by your past. Instead you are born anew in each moment. So own it. Now.
 
SO OWN IT
NOW
 
Sometimes you’ve got to leap and grow your wings on the way down. You better get the shot off before the clock runs out. Cuz ain't no over time in life. No do-over. And I know I sound like I'm preaching or speaking with force. But if you don't use your gift then you sell, not only yourself, but the whole world... short.
 
SHORT
 
So what invention do you have buried in your mind? What idea?
 
IDEA
CURE
SKILL
 
What cure? What skill did you have inside to bring out to this universe?
 
UNI = ONE VERSE = SONG
 
Uni meaning one, verse meaning song, you have a part to play in this song.
 
ONE SONG
 
So grab that microphone and be brave. Sing your heart out on life's stage. You cannot go back and make a brand new beginning. But you can start now and make a brand new ending.
 
A BRAND NEW ENDING.
