Some people know what they want to be from a very young age. For instance, Bobby Orr first skated at age three. He never stopped skating, and became arguably the greatest hockey player ever to lace up skates.
Growing up in Parry Sound, Ontario, there was plenty of ice and other players to egg him on. If he’d grown up in Southern California, who knows, he may have become a surfer!
My daughter Jordana is 14, and wants to be an actress on broadway. Since she was two, she was clowning around, singing her song, and creating entertainment for family and friends. She’s now well on her way, having won leading roles, several awards, and writing songs and shooting movies.
On the other hand, I have always been more of a dreamer than a doer. Astronaut, baseball player, rock star, and media mogul have always been just out of reach, and I still don’t know what my legacy will be.
