  • Tomorrow, in a very real sense, your life - the life you author from scratch on your own - begins.

  • How will you use your gifts? What choices will you make?

  • Will inertia be your guide, or will you follow your passions?

  • Will you follow dogma, or will you be original?

  • Will you choose a life of ease, or a life of service and adventure?

  • Will you wilt under criticism, or will you follow your convictions?

  • Will you bluff it out when you're wrong, or will you apologize?

  • Will you guard your heart against rejection, or will you act when you fall in love?

  • Will you play it safe, or will you be a little bit swashbuckling?

  • When it's tough, will you give up, or will you be relentless?

  • Will you be a cynic, or will you be a builder?

  • Will you be clever at the expense of others, or will you be kind?

  • I will hazard a prediction.

  • When you are 80 years old,

  • and in a quiet moment of reflection

  • narrating for only yourself the most personal version of your life story,

  • the telling that will be most compact and meaningful

  • will be the series of choices you have made.

  • In the end, we are our choices.

  • Build yourself a great story.

  • Thank you and good luck!

Tomorrow, in a very real sense, your life - the life you author from scratch on your own - begins.
