If you were hit by a truck and had one song to sing, what would it be?
That’s the question a music producer asks a struggling door-to-door salesman who’s dreaming of being a musician in one of the most powerful movie scenes I’ve ever watched.
The movie — Walk the Line. The struggling musician — Johnny Cash.
Today I climb up the mountain to talk about this incredible movie scene, and a question I think we all wrestle with:
Why am I afraid to sing the song that I know I need to sing?
Why are we afraid to live the truth inside of us?
How do we become that breathe of fresh air for others and say the truth we’re all experiencing, yet are afraid to admit?
How do we live on purpose with purpose?
How do we live a little bit more like Johnny Cash?
