Oh, the Places You’ll Go is a brilliant book. It’s about ups and downs of life, it’s about the beginning, about making good decisions, about optimism and the good thing in our lives! The author doesn’t say life will be a joyride all the time. He mentioned the bad moments too but the whole point of the book is that even when you don’t like what life gives you, even if you make mistakes, you still control what you do with your life.This book is all about one of the greatest truths of life: you cannot always have it your way; you cannot change other people, or the weather, or disease or famine or foreign war. But you can choose your thoughts, your words, and your actions, and if you set your sights on something you want more than anything else, no one can stop you.
This is a story about life’s ups and downs, told by the people of Burning Man 2011.
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
