Advice for graduatesIt’s hard to believe that 35 years have passed since I graduated from Northwestern High School.

It’s hard to believe that 35 years have passed since I graduated from Northwestern High School. The excitement, happiness and uncertainty of the future are vivid memories I have and it seems just like yesterday.
Take time to thank your parents or people who have helped you to this point in your life. Even if you don’t believe it now your parents and teachers care deeply about you and want you to have success and happiness in your life. You will understand this when one day you become a parent.
Remember these simple rules. Tell The Truth … All The Time; The Golden Rule; be kind to everyone; what comes around, goes around; give to others less fortunate. And finally strive for a journey-driven lifestyle. This journey is different from a lifestyle driven journey as it holds the secret to financial success and satisfaction. I don’t care what career you choose because, in the end, it really doesn’t matter. Spend your life doing something you enjoy, something you are good at, and something that makes the most of your natural talents, and I can assure you, the money will follow. It is much more important for you to be happy than it is for you to be rich. Hopefully, now you understand how you can have both.
I wish you the best as you begin your next journey in life. I wish you a lifetime of happiness, health and dreams that come true. Congratulations Class of 2013!
