WISE WORDS TO FUTURE LEADERS: LIFE'S BLUEPRINT

This is the most important and crucial period of your lives, for what you do now and what you decide at this age may well determine which way your life shall go. And the question is whether you have a proper, a solid and sound blueprint. And I want to suggest some of the things that should be in your life's blueprint.

BELIEF IN YOUR SELF-WORTH

Number one in your life's blueprint should be a deep belief in your own dignity, your own worth and your own somebodiness. Don't allow anybody to make you feel like you are nobody. Always feel that you count. Always feel that you have worth, and always feel that your life has ultimate significance.

EXCEL IN YOUR OWN WAY

Secondly in your life's blueprint, you must have as a basic principle the determination to achieve excellence in your various fields of endeavor. You're going to be deciding as the days and the years unfold what you will do in life, what your life's work will be. Once you discover what it will be, set out to do it and to do it well. Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a highway, just be a trail.

If you can't be the sun, be a star, for isn't by size whether you win or you fail, be the best of whatever you are.

KEEP IN PROGRESSIVE MOTION

Finally in your life's blueprint, must be a commitment to the eternal principles of beauty, love, and justice. Well, life for none of us has been a crystal stair. But we must keep moving, we must keep going. If you can't fly, run. If you can't run, walk. If you can't walk, crawl but by all means keep moving.
