Graduates and guests at the Spring 2012 Globe University-Madison graduation ceremony at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center were treated to a great motivational keynote speech by Attorney Krystal Williams-Oby. This was Krystal’s second time speaking to Globe University graduates and that night, she inspired, motivated and reached the crowd with great enthusiasm, strength and spunk.
In her speech, Krystal set out to challenge college graduates telling them to go beyond their current academic achievements and continue on the path to lifelong learning.
“Success can only be defined for you, by you. No one else can determine what success is for you. Yes you have your degree, but I want to challenge you to further. There’s more to life than what you’ve obtained today. You should never stop learning, earning and achieving your goals that are deep down inside of you.” She declared. “Success really is relative; it is what you say it is for you. Success is not an event, so it doesn’t stop here. It is not you obtaining your degree. Tonight is the first step of the next phase of your life. Success is not an event, it is a journey; taking one step after another to achieve a specific goal.”
Krystal continued to share the 3 simple strategies in becoming successful in your own right and used a mountain climber as an analogy.
So what are the three simple strategies in becoming successful in your own right? Watch and learn.
Share with us what you think. Did it move you? Motivate you to go further? What is your definition of being successful in your own right? We want to hear about it!
