Jim Henson, famed primarily for his creation of the Muppets, has influenced the lives of millions of people across the world, whether they realise it or not. Until his death in 1990, he never stopped creating quality shows for children and adults alike, and his work has never waned in popularity.
Even now, his characters and creations are iconic. They connect to people in a rare and valuable way that encourages the finest qualities in all people.
“THE MOST SOPHISTICATED PEOPLE I KNOW – INSIDE THEY ARE ALL CHILDREN”
There is a special kind of joy in children that comes from freedom and imagination and complete ignorance of the restrictions imposed on the adult world. They truly, deeply believe that the whole world is theirs to play with and that they can do whatever they set their mind to. The people who are destined to succeed are the people to hang on that dedication, to that creativity, to that belief in beauty and purity and joy.
“LIFE’S LIKE A MOVIE, WRITE YOUR OWN ENDING. KEEP BELIEVING, KEEP PRETENDING”
Even when things seem difficult, you have more control than you might imagine, if only you go out and look for it. Make the most of every opportunity. Believe in yourself and your abilities. Keep the things you want in mind at all times and play out your path in your mind as often and differently as you need to until you get to live your dreams for real.
“WATCH OUT FOR EACH OTHER AND LOVE AND FORGIVE EVERYBODY. IT’S A GOOD LIFE, ENJOY IT”
Your approach to life is your choice. You can look for the positives in a situation or you can focus on the negative. You can seek out opportunity or you can let the tide drag you along. You can push people aside or you can embrace them. Choosing to enjoy life will always be one of the greatest decisions a person can make. Choosing to make life equally positive for other people will forever be one of the noblest.
“MY AMBITION WAS TO BE ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD. MY HOPE IS TO LEAVE THE WORLD A LITTLE BETTER FOR HAVING BEEN THERE”
You have a relatively short amount of time in the world and a limited amount of influence. What you choose to do with your resources is entirely up to you. Jim Henson chose to spread joy wherever he could. He chose to teach the world, through his art, about love and laughter. Is there any more honourable ambition to have?
