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 want people to realize they don’t have to play it safe and stick to the script.
Instead, they can write the script.
