Brad’s profile photo on Twitter. Sorry, I didn’t ask permission. If I need to take it down, I will.

Brad Montague is an author and artist and creator, and I found him online somewhere at some point in the past. He’s the guy behind Kid President, but that’s not how I discovered him.

I’ve read one of his recent books, Becoming Better Grownups: Rediscovering What Matters and Remembering How to Fly, which was good, but I felt I didn’t learn too much because I already do the things he says to do. Next I want to read his latest book, which is aimed at kids: The Fantastic Bureau of Imagination.

Regardless, Brad shared some videos on Instagram earlier this year, and I thought they were worth watching. They make slightly more sense if you’ve read Becoming Better Grownups, but they easily stand on their own.

In short, be the star of your own life. Your life is your chance to be amazing.
