Several years ago Australian author Matthew Kelly was invited to speak to a class of high school seniors.  He found himself more interested in what they had to say than what their teacher’s thought they needed to hear.  There were eighty-four students before him and he was curious to know what they yearned for.  He began by asking, “What do you want from life?

Initially silence filled the auditorium until finally a young man called out, “I want to be rich.”  Matthew asked him why he wanted to be rich.  “So I can do whatever I want,” was his reply.

Then Matthew raised the question again.  A young woman said she wanted to be a doctor.

Again Matthew asked: “what else do you want from life?”  A young man toward the back called out, “I want a beautiful wife.”  His friends giggled, and Matthew asked him if he had been successful in locating one yet.  The young man said he hadn’t, and Matthew sympathized with him, explaining he had not, either.”

Finally, Matthew asked the question one more time: “what do you want from life?” But the crowd was quiet, and exhausted, and still…  “In less than twenty minutes, eighty-four high school seniors had become exhausted of their hopes, dreams, plans, and ambitions for the future.  If was not completely true, then whatever they had failed to share was either not worth sharing or they lacked the confidence to share it.  [A handful of] students had been able to summarize the dreams of all eighty-four.” – Matthew Kelly, The Rhythm Of Life
