Every morning, you have two choices – continue to sleep with your dreams, or wake up and chase them.
You have the ability to reach your goals by taking one step at a time. It just takes hard work and staying focused to get there.
Do not be afraid of your own company. The walls that you have built for yourself only confine you. This is the time to break those walls down and find yourself.
This will allow you to have a sound mind, make good decisions, stay on task to complete what needs to be done, and the reward will be seeing your work pay off.
Life is not a chase only for money. Money will come eventually if you are in the right place at the right time with the right people, and doing the right thing.
The true meaning of “money” is love. Not the romantic type of love, but the love of learning, the love of networking, the love of building a relationship, the love of open-mindedness, and the love of gratitude.
The sign of a beautiful person is seeing the beauty in others. Whether you are young or old, you learn from all of your experiences. As a teenager, you don’t know where life is going to take you. You just have to be brave enough to stand your ground. Take advantage of the opportunities you are given.
There are many avenues that you can take to get a sense of what you want your future to hold. The best way is to listen to the elders as they share what they have gone through, how they dealt with their problems, and how the people in their time made a change. Their stories will touch your life.
The reason you are standing here today is because of the struggles that the elders endured in order to make a difference. They will pass on the knowledge that they have gained through their experiences.
You should always keep your eyes on the prize, the prize of happiness.
We all would like to live a life filled with integrity, kindness, bravery, curiosity, persistence, self-control, social intelligence, and humility. Believe that you can one day and you are already halfway there.
