I was flunking out of college. I had a 1.7 grade point average. I hope none of you can relate At A 1.7 grade point average. I was sitting in my mother’s beauty shop They still call it beauty shops now what they call it. Yeah, I’ll sit in the beauty parlor I was sitting in my mother’s beauty parlor and I’m looking in the mirror and I see behind me this woman under the dryer And every time she looked up she every time I looked up. She was looking at me Just look at me in the eye I don’t know who she was and I said you know she said somebody give me a pen give me a pencil I have a prophecy March 27 1975 she said boy you were going to travel the world and speak to millions of people Now mind you I’ll flunked out of college I’m thinking about joining. The army. I didn’t know what I was going to do and she’s telling me I’m going to travel the world and Speak to millions of people Well, I have traveled the world And I have spoke to millions people But that’s not the most important thing success that I had the most important thing is that what she taught me? And what she told me that day has stayed with me since I’ve been protected. I’ve been directed. I’ve been corrected. FAIL BIG That’s right Fail big you only live once so Do what you feel passionate about passionate about? Take chances professionally Don’t be afraid to fail There’s an old IQ test was nine dots And you had to draw five lines with a pencil within these nine dots Without lifting the pencil the only way to do it was to go outside the box So don’t be afraid to go outside the box Don’t be afraid to Think outside the box don’t be afraid to fail big to dream big but remember dreams without goals Are just dreams and they ultimately fuel disappointment. So have dreams but have goals life goals yearly goals Monthly go daily goals. I try to get my cell phone every day and understand That to achieve these goals You must apply discipline and consistency You have to work at it every Day you have to plan Every day, we’re just saying we don’t plan to fail we fail to plan hard work works Working really hard Is what successful people do and in this? Text tweet Twerk world that you’ve grown up in Remember just because you’re doing a lot more Doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more done Remember that just because you’re doing a lot more Doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot more? done don’t confuse movement with progress My mother told me yeah, yeah. Oh you’ve been running plays all the time and never get anywhere, so Continue to strive to have goals continue to progress And anything you want good? you can have Go claim it Work hard to get it When you get it reach back hold someone else up each one teach one Don’t just aspire to make a living Aspire to make a difference
