YOU’VE BEEN ASKED TO SPEAK AT YOUR HIGH SCHOOL ALMA MATER- ABOUT THE PATH OF LIFE. (WHOA.) DRAFT THE SPEECH.
I have never given a speech bear with me. Here it goes:
Good evening students and alumni. I am humbled that you asked me to speak at my old alma mater. I have had some good times and some bad times. Just like in life there will be ups and downs. Things will happen that is out of your control. That’s life! Don’t stress over the things you cannot control. It is a waste of time and will make you miserable in the process.
The only advice I can give after many ups and downs is follow your bliss!
After many years of doing everything but what makes me happy. It all boils down to this. At 38 years old I found what was missing in my life! Don’t wait too long to find the thing that makes you happy. Follow your heart and everything else will fall into place.
Some people think they have the right to judge the things you do. Those people are deluded. The only way they have the power over you is if you give it to them. Don’t give it to them.
Don’t let other people try to tear you down because they will if you let them. Only you have control of your happiness! Don’t let jealousy and hatred from others ruin that for you!
Be strong and fight for what you want if you have to. Never give up on your dreams for anyone or anything! I was once told I would never be a writer that pays well. What he didn’t understand was that it was never about the money for me! It is about my bliss!
In conclusion follow your heart and it will lead you to your bliss! There you will find yourself and your happiness! You can never go wrong following your heart! Thank you! Have a great life so go out and conquer it!
