Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish!

You may have already seen this speech but it’s worth seeing a second time.  This is one of those inspiring video’s that leaves you feeling lifted!  I think it’s fitting being that Graduation is in the air!  I will attend my son’s Grade 5 farewell today, knowing that in a blink of an eye, it will be my Son setting out in the world to chase down his dreams!  All I can hope for is that he Dream Big ! Dreams are meant to be touched.

Graduation to me was a new beginning, an adventure.  Your life was about to begin.  You had been training for this moment for 12 years and the day has finally come.  Freedom!  Responsibility!  A chance to prove that you have what it takes to make a difference in the World.

Congratulations to all of you who have completed a goal in life that will stay with you forever, Education!

    Oh My Goodness ! Thank – You Tracy ! At first I had a moment of what I thought was going to be disappointment when I didn’t see a lot of writing on your post today…. But, I was overwhelmed with with Steve’s inspiring speech ! I never finished my education until much later in life. Also, I took a multitude of courses pertaining to the Industry I work in as I was employed full time. This is not an easy way to acquire your education…. full time work, children and school. So, for those of you who can ( Stay in School ) while the opportunity is there ! On the other hand we can continue to educate ourselves in all kinds of ways….. the simple education of life itself ! Living and learning, making good choices, and being alert enough to learn quickly from our mistakes. Living in the moment and realizing how perishes each moment is. I can’t say I love what I do for a living….. but I can say I love being there for the people that work under me. It’s huge for me to know that I can make a difference the lives of the people around me at work…. even if it is only one person, it’s all worth it.

    For example I am educating myself right now by knowing that what I got out of this mans speech. I will add more changes to how I look at my life in general, and that alone in my opinion is a good example of continuing to educate myself every day.

    Continued Education Is Paying Attention Each Day Of Our Lives !

    Excellent ! Thanks Tracy !

    Thanks for sharing this Tracy. I had never seen it before. I was very moved. Almost like Steve was talking to me at some points.

    And Rick, I couldn’t agree more with what you said. I have obtained most of my training through Continued Ed. It’s certainly a hard and long way to go about it, but I know it will be worth it in the end.

    Wow great comments !! I hoped that you would find this as inspiring as I did. Self education is as important as any schooling. You have to be a very motivated person to seek out school on your own. My Dad is a brilliant man who educated himself by simply having the desire to do so. Not everything in life is taught in school but it certainly gives us the tools to continue outside of the school system. Trayc
