In 2013, Chris “Ashton” Kutcher’s acceptance speech at the Teen Choice Awards was not what most people would have considered traditional.
He had three things to say, and speaks out about what our teens need to know in order to be successful in life. Our Superstars aren’t just lucky, and it takes hard work to reach your dreams. Through his own story, he reminds them that he didn’t just become an actor overnight.
But how did he get from sweeping cheerios off of a warehouse floor to finally getting a chance to be noticed?
Instead of just saying “Thank You,” he took this moment to inspire them with the tools that would help them become their own Superstar. What did he say that was so powerful to reveal at an awards ceremony to our next generation?
Ashton’s message isn’t just for teens, this applies to all of us no matter where we are in our lives. Make it happen for yourself too!
