My main goal in life is to deliver a college commencement speech.
I dream about this. I journal about it every morning. My daily affirmation is, “I will give a commencement speech before I die.” And I pray for it every night.
It’s gonna happen. In fact, I’ve already written the speech:
When life gives you lemons, you don’t have to make lemonade. You can make whatever the hell you want. You can throw them out and ask for something else – something less sour.
Don’t waste your only life doing something you don’t enjoy. Instead, find what you love – what keeps you up at night – and do more of that.
And don’t stop looking until you find it.
The whole delivery takes 27 seconds in my animated, engaging, monotone voice. I can do it in 21 seconds if I strip out the emotion.
The point isn’t to make anyone second-guess their major or career choice. I just want people to realize they don’t have to play it safe and stick to the script.
Instead, they can write their own script. Read the Post about You Don’t Have to Make Lemonade
