Several months ago, someone sent me this incredible video of a commencement speech given at the University of Texas. I’m sure many of you have seen this as it went viral. Watch it again. Never seen it? Take 18:00 and get out a pen and paper. Two words: Game. Changer. No, it’s not gospel centered, but it will light a fire under you.

  • Start by making your bed. 
  • Find someone to help you paddle. 
  • Measure a person by the size of their heart, not by the size of their flippers. 
  • Get over being a sugar cookie and keep moving forward.
  • Don’t be afraid of the circuses. 
  • Sometimes you have to slide down the obstacles head first. 
  • If you hope to complete the swim, don’t back down from the sharks. 
  • Be your very best in the darkest moments.
  • Start singing when you’re up to your neck in mud.
  • Don’t ever ring the bell.
