I wanted to share a motivational speech for this evening’s article. Although this discussion has a specific audience, we can all learn from these inspiring words. The title of the article was fitting because time and time again, I hear a new generation emerging that wants to get handed success and not work for it. The generations before us worked hard for us to be able to work hard. Those generations did not work hard for us to send 1,000 plus texts every day to friends and play candy crush until we have to purchase more lives. I hope these lessons can inspire you to move towards your dreams.
1. You have to have heart. Most of you say you want to be successful, but you don’t want it that bad. When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, you will be successful.
2. Be able, at any moment, to sacrifice what you are for what you can become.
3. Pain is temporary.
