  • Yes that does translate to ancient Ireland. This is coming from my old Irish family. Named O'Cullen with slight spelling deviations. Which was a clan who ran the isle for a short duration. Good speaker Lily.

  • Its great to see your hair naturally curly – its beautiful! My Why? To help people of curl realize that your hair does not need to be 'fixed'….it needs to be EMBRACED! Most people are mistreated & misinformed and my goal is to treat your curls well and to inform you properly to help you embrace your curls. Great video!

  • Your why is: "To inspire others, to be extraordinary", that sounds like a what to me. WHY exactly do you want to inspire others? So that they can be extraordinary? That indicates that they are not extraordinary yet. How do you measure your succes, how can you tell someone became extraordinary, where is the threshold? Are you extraordinary? If not, how can you inspire others to be extraordinary, if yes, then if you fail to inspire, you become simply ordinary?

    Etalon Beats September 9, 2017 2:19 PM Reply
    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for the questions Etalon. I guess, it's not really about measuring success but providing value…people's threshold most probably depends on them. If a person fails to inspire…that doesn't mean he/she should stop trying to be extraordinary and to keep going…doing his/her best. 🙂 #Believe #BTA621 Shine

      Evan Carmichael September 13, 2017 3:50 PM Reply
    • Thanks for replying. Your Why Evan is questionable to me as well. "I believe that entrepreneurs will solve all the major problems in the world" well if you know human history, you should know that entrepreneurs created those major problems in the first place. Oceans full of plastic, disappeared forests, extint animals and I could go on and on. Don't get me wrong, I love most of your videos, but there are some BS on here as well. The only solution is in the customers hands, because if they stop buying products that are harmful for Mother Earth, then they would stop supporting these moneyhungry entrepreneurs. Why don't you tell your subscribers NOT to buy your book, because that would save forests, go ahead and download it instead! I know holding a book in the hand is much better, but people should realize that our comfort is why there are so many problems out there…

  • I'd been drawing and painting since I was a little kid, but I'd never thought about why I do it before I read Simon's book, other than that I like doing it. I don't expect to bring about world peace or end hunger with my art, so I thought because I don't have any lofty goals, I don't have any reason for doing what I'm doing, but I do. I'm going to copy and paste what I wrote under the "What Motivates Me' subheading of the "About Me" section of my website."…for me, art has always been about the joy of creating, of bringing something into existence that wasn't there before. I love knowing that I can bring a bit more beauty and joy into people's lives. Also, ever since I was a kid, I've loved setting challenges for myself and conquering them. Nothing lets me do all three of these things, creating, adding beauty, and conquering challenges, better than painting and drawing. I'm also fascinated by faces and figures, both human and animal, which is why I paint the subjects I do. The purpose of my art is to either capture a likeness or capture a moment and keep it forever."
