ON HIS PRESENT STATE OF MIND
"My consistent state of mind is one of gratitude, of having as much appreciation for all I do, am, and have -- while also being excited and eager for more."
"I think happiness is such a unique and personal pursuit for everyone, and it constantly shifts and changes. I've come to understand that, for me, it is so much easier to find happiness when I get clear on my values and what I want."
ON AN INFLUENTIAL MOVIE
"I remember going to see Braveheart at the theater, with my uncle -- and it just blew me away. I was totally absorbed. It forever changed me and is still my favorite movie to this day."
"... anyone who has chosen to be happy and radiate that energy outwards - these people, to me, are the most admirable because I know how powerful and inspiring it is to be in the contagious presence of such energy."
