“Never miss a good chance to shut up.”
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

Don’t Make This Mistake on Pinterest

Happy Memorial Day. Thank you for your service!
I found this image at CuratedQuotes.com and completely agree with this quote from Henry Ford. Whether it’s on the athletic field, in the classroom, or at a faculty meeting, leaders don’t have to have a title.
With the end of the school year approaching that means graduation season is upon us. Graduation season means graduation speeches on the internet and in all honesty – I’m a sucker for an entertaining graduation speech.
I think I enjoy graduation season so much because I think giving a memorable and meaningful graduation speech is one of the hardest public speaking challenges there is.
Can you remember your high school or college graduation speaker?
Can you remember what they said?
To begin graduation season I wanted to share this clip from actress Sandra Bullock. While I have enjoyed many of her movies in the past I really enjoyed her memorable advice to these graduates. I especially enjoyed her challenge to stop worrying!
Go found your joy!
