“Mr. Duncan, this is crazy! My biochemistry book costs $120!”
“Didn’t you just spend $125 getting your hair done?”
“So, it’s cool to spend that kind of cash on the outside of your head, but not on the inside?”
“I never looked at it like that, but real talk, Mr. Duncan, I gotta get my hair done.”
—conversation between Al Duncan and a college student
What’s in your head (and heart) determines what’s in your life.
Nice hats, expensive sunglasses, earrings, haircuts, and hairdos cost you thousands of dollars. A book on personal or professional development might cost you $25 and could help you make thousands, maybe millions, of dollars.
There’s nothing wrong with taking care of the outside of your head, but take care of the inside too.
Million-Dollar Question:[break]Do you spend more time, money, and energy[break]on the outside or inside of your head?
1. If beauty starts on the inside, why do so many people only work on the outside instead of developing what’s on the inside?
2. In professions where people get paid to be outwardly attractive (ex. modeling, acting, etc.), do you think it is still important to work on personal development? Why?
3. What is your definition of attractive? How did you come up with this definition?
4. What is your definition of unattractive? How did you come up with this definition?
5. What are 3-5 “inner” qualities or characteristics you admire most in a person? Why?
