Imagine

So Wednesday morning at 10.00 I was leaving my house to give 1 of 4 workshops I had to give that day at the ROC school of Amsterdam. I had been invited to be part of their entrepreneurship week and speak about Personal Branding. But I was a real mess. I was very upset about the US elections, had not slept at all and did not know how I was going to make it through the day.

But I got lucky. I had asked one of the students to explain to me why he wanted to become a musician.
He said, “Because I like it.”
I said, “But why do you like it?”

The answer that followed made my day.

“My grandmother does not speak any Dutch and the language we communicate in is music. I want to become a musician, because music connects people and I feel that we need more of that.”

Needless to say I agree with him. So let me leave you with this.

“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
No religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one”

This picture here is not the student I was talking about, but just a student that wanted to take a picture with me because he thought I was cool. It worked wonders on my ego ;-)!
