Today I went down and spoke to the students at Utah Valley University. I really love speaking to the students at the colleges because as I stand on the stage and look out at their faces I can’t help but be humbled by the amazing things these young people are going to go on and accomplish with their lives…and the crazy thing is that they don’t even realize it yet! They have no idea just how incredible and talented and capable they already are let alone how much more they are going to become as they move forward with their lives. Ten years from now those young people will have changed this world in unbelievable ways. And I am just happy I will be able to say “I knew them back when…”
Each one of us, regardless of our age, has every reason to be happy, and excited, and passionate, and energetic, because every one of us are just as capable of changing the world for the better as those young people I spoke to today are. If we would simply set aside our insecurties and tell our fears to get out of the way, we would see that we have what it takes to accomplish incredible things. All we have to do is move forward with courage and do it!
“You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.” -E.O. Wilson
There is nothing that can make us incapable of doing great things. There is no physical or finanical or intellectual limitation that will ever be big enough to stop anyone from leaving a mark on this world. Every single person who is ever born has the capacity to touch lives for the better and to leave a legacy. The only thing that stands in our way of greatness is the limiting thoughts in our own minds, so tell them to kindly step aside because you have a world to leave an imprint on and IT IS TIME YOU GOT TO IT!
Have an amazing weekend everyone!
