I have been fortunate enough to have had a chance to be on stage numerous times .I have given speeches,anchored events and also trained students in public speaking.Because of this i have interacted with various people and observed various public speakers. And i can safely say that most of the GOOD stuff you hear is nothing but pure baloney.
Most OOHs and AAHs and awesome dialogs don’t really mean anything.
I hate it when people try to act philosophical and deep and amazing,and when they try to impress people with heavy words like LIFE,God and metaphysics.I don’t get it when they try to drive a point hoem by drawing nonsensical corollaries.and worst people start doing OOHs and AAHs at the drop of a hat without even getting it.I have struggled with this syndrome where when i don’t get it,i don’t get it.
Though i don’t mean to say that every deep thought is baloney,but many are and people who are speaking them mostly don’t get it themselves. Many times statements are made to sound DEEP and not really to add anything to the conversation…..
and So as an experiment i have tried here to compare mundane things to LIFE to sound DEEP…Use them at your own risk..You may sound intellectualts
Anything can be compared to Life BTW
1.Life is like a menu card—sometimes you have to share it
2.Why are you scared of dust—you yourself are made of dust—dust is life saying you are allergic to dust you mean you are allergic to life
3.Football is like Life—you keep trying to hit your goal(full fill your goals) and life throws some problems or the other.The goalie is like your obstacle.Enjoy it
4.Life is like a basket ball game,you need to keep trying from different angles and different points and one day you will achieve your aims
5.Life is like a train ride,you know your final destination so enjoy the journey
6. Life is nothing but everything
7.Dance is like Life…you need to learn the moves to succeed and survive
8.Life is like a test ..some people finish in a hurry and exit some slowly and steadily answer the questions .
9.Life is like an exam..if you are too fast..you leave early,if too slow you don’t complete the paper .
10.Life is like a car ,you need to start it and push the accelerator if you want to reach your satiation
11.Life is like a rope..every problem is a knot..you can try to solve the knots without breaking but sometimes you just have to leave it
Ok I am tired,so as you see not too much thought goes into creating a deep thought.What matters is how the speaker presents it,does he/she showcase the passion ,the belief and the thought behind it?
Words are misleading,hold on to your OOHS and AAHs on every seemingly good comment,look at how that really fits into the whole scene.
So what are your Life is Quotes…??
before i go.. here is the last food or thought..think before you call it DEEP meaning..
