When I started graduate school I did not know anyone at the school and felt a little lost. I had decided to go back to school and get my MBA to (hopefully) boost my struggling career. I was “starting over”. I knew that I was signing up for a mountain of student loans but, for some reason, the study of business just “felt right” to me.
Dream Big !
If there were ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,
it is now.
Not for any grand causes, necessarily –
but for something that tugs at your heart,
something that’s your aspiration,
something that is your dream.
You owe it to yourself
to make your days here count.
Know, though, that things worth doing
seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around,
pack it up,
and call it quits.
Those times tell you
that you are pushing yourself,
that you are not afraid to learn by trying.
Because with an idea,
and the right tools,
you can do great things.
Let your instincts,
and your heart
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new
brings the hope of something great.
Anything is possible.
There is only one you.
And you will pass this way only once.
Do it right.
