“The next time something feels impossible, stay hungry.”: Chelsea Dinsmore at WDS

Next month we’ll release the first round of tickets for WDS 2017, a week-long gathering of creative, remarkable people—taking place next summer in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

But first, we’re rolling out a series of speaker videos from the 2016 event. Chelsea Dinsmore took to the stage as our third keynote speaker of the day. She’s the owner and Chief Inspiration Officer of Live Your Legend, a community whose mission is to change the world by helping people find their passion and build a career around the work that only they are capable of doing. Live Your Legend hosts monthly in person meetups in over 200 cities across nearly 60 countries, focused on creating in-person connections with like-minded living legends.

Check out the video below to hear her inspiring message about how you are limitless—no matter what tragedies you may have experienced in your life up till now.

“When you question not what you can do, but what it’s important to you, the how reveals itself, because hunger is the how. The next time something feels impossible, stay hungry. Instead of shutting down to your own limitations, open up to curiosity. Turn those statements into questions, because when you do, the unimaginable awaits.”

“Some might hear [my] story and call it a tragedy, but I actually wonder if the only real tragedy in this life is to let one loss lead to another—to lose someone that’s actually still here.”

“You are limitless. The only limits that you have are the limits you put on yourself. And when you shut down those limitations, you open up to possibility.”

“We’re only alone when we choose to be, because we really are all in this together. Every action that you take, somehow, some way, has an impact on someone else. There are no random acts.”
