Actor Chris Pratt gave a stirring speech a few years ago, sharing rules for life. He addressed the next generation at the MTV Movie & TV Awards. While accepting the Generation Award, Pratt shared nine rules with young people.
“I accept the responsibility as your elder, so listen up,” Pratt started. He then shared the nine rules for life. Some are clearly serious, yet Pratt delivered them with quintessential jokester persona. He articulated other points with the express purpose of garnering a laugh.
9 Rules for Life, According to Chris Pratt
Never forget this key rule for life.
2. You have a soul.
Be careful with it.
3. Don’t be a turd.
If you’re strong, be a protector. And if you’re smart, be a humble influencer. Your intelligence can be used as a weapon. And if you’re smart, do not wield it against the weak.
4. When giving dog medicine, hide it in a piece of hamburger.
The dog will never know.
5. Doesn’t matter what it is—earn it.
Be of service. It feels good, and it’s good for your soul.
6. God is real.
God loves you. He wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.
