[Inspiring Video] You Don’t Have to Find Out You’re Dying to Start Living – A Tribute to Zach Sobiech

As many of you know, my dad died way too early from pancreatic cancer.

I know what it’s like to get “the call” from a loved one who has a horrific diagnosis.

But it’s really in the decisions that we make after such tragic news that define us, and how we choose to live the chapters ahead.

This story of Zach Sobiech really touched my heart.  

 

At the age of 14, he was diagnosed with a terminal bone cancer.  He chose to live out loud, instead of focusing on his impending death.

And because he did, Zach changed so many lives and left a huge legacy in his final chapters, including writing a #1 song.

Please take 20 minutes, get some tissues, and watch his story.  It changed my perspective on so many things.

Rest in peace, Zach.  You did a great job with the short life you lived.

Let’s face it – we’re all terminal.  Most of us just don’t have a diagnosis.  

Don’t wait to get one before you swing the bat and take a shot at every last one of your childhood dreams.

As Zach says in this video, “You don’t have to find out you’re dying to start living.”

Enjoy the Journey.

Sean

    I can’t find the words… My heart and soul are bursting with inspiration, sadness, motivation, LIFE, love, light. Touched by an angel…
