There’s a fantastic message in this commencement speech. You might want to scroll forward to 2m 57s which is where the real message begins in this commencement speech.
These are definitely words of wisdom and it reminds me of this quote which I have always loved and kept near to me.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
The above quote has been attributed to Calvin Coolidge but I’ve heard conflicting stories on that. Either way, it’s irrelevant. Watch the video and get down to it 🙂
