Thanks To Those Who Helped Me
Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2011
It's here, Iíve finally made it,
Graduation is finally here.
I would have never made it,
Without my three musketeers.
The first is my parents who always,
Made me believe in all I could be.
You were always such an inspiration,
And showed me what I couldn't see.
The second is the great teachers,
Who wanted nothing than me to succeed.
You've helped and been so patient,
And were always around when I need.
And last, but very not least,
Were my friends who kept me afloat.
Whenever I felt I was drowning,
You always came to me by boat.
Without my three inspirations,
I don't know if I'd have made it through.
Now that graduation is near us,
I don't have to wonder what's true.
But what I do want to say to you all,
Is thank you for being you.
I'm so lucky to have you all with me,
You've held me together like glue.
So here I am about to embark,
In a new journey all on my own.
I hope I remember your teachings,
And find my way as youíve shown.
Today is the day that I graduate,
A day unlike any I've owned.
I know I like to procrastinate,
But this time I definitely won't postpone.
We don't know one millionth of one percent about anything.
Believing in yourself is what gives you the confidence and resilience to deal with the rejections and doubts.
Cameron Johnson, You Call the Shots
Many successful people arrived at their niche in life through exposure and experimentation in areas that interested them.
Seymour Schulich, Get Smarter Life and Business Lessons
Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.
Success may have more to do with effectively balancing demands and priorities than simply winning.
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Honor your commitments with integrity.
If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters.
Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.
Charles R. Swindoll
Don't strive to be perfect. Strive for excellence.
