JONATHAN CAIN'S LIVE INSPIRED 7
1. What is the best book you’ve ever read? The Power of Now by Eckhart Toehl. It took me awhile to get into, but it changed my life. I woke up the next morning looking at the world differently.
2. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? Hopeful. I was very hopeful.
3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? My computer with my lyrics on it.
4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? Abraham Lincoln. I'd ask him 'How do you write like that?' His wisdom and words resonate so strong.
5. What is the best advice you've ever received? Pay attention. Stay in the moment. I've seen a lot of people having a conversation that aren't in the conversation. My father would say, 'Are you really connecting with everyone you meet?' There is probably some wisdom you need to take. People don't meet by accident but for a reason.
6. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? You are not always who they say you are. You are uniquely unique, so don't be afraid.
7. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read? Never stop believin' in who you are. You are uniquely you.
