Today’s message is keep moving forward. Over to you, Johnny Depp.
One of the greatest pieces of advice I’ve ever gotten in my life was from my mom. When I was a little kid, there was a kid who was bugging me in school. And she said, “Okay, I’m going to tell you what to do.” She said, “The kid’s bugging you, “he puts his hands on you, you pick up the nearest rock “or whatever you can get your hands on, “and you lay him out.” (audiences laughs)
“Keep moving forward and don’t give a what anybody thinks, just keep moving forward and what you have to do, for you.” – Johnny Depp
Audience Member: Yay mom!
Then I did. And I felt better. And it worked. So for me that was a great lesson because someone had invaded my space, invaded my being. And was doing something against me that I didn’t want to be done so I took control of the situation and I ran with it.
When years later after being turned into a product by a very huge corporation that had their hands all over me and I couldn’t escape it. I promised myself that I would continue to move forward, and do my best not to compromise in any way, whatsoever.
Not allow anyone to put their hands on me and affect me in that way. So that’s the best advise I think I could give is just to keep moving forward and don’t give a what anybody thinks, just keep moving forward and what you have to do, for you.
