From homeless to Harvard
the story of Liz Murray
Completing a 4-year program in only 77 years--the oldest college graduate ever
Know what you want
Speak or write your goals
Be direct, articulate, assertive, confident
Develop a plan
Consult with others
But do not cave to negativity
Work your plan
Adjust or modify if needed
But don’t quit!
You know you tried your best
Recognition, raises, promotions
Admiration and inspiration
Unremarkable, below average
Unattractive to the successful
What if you LACK diligence and persistence?
Believe in yourself
Celebrate your successes, and learn from your failures.
When you get up after a fall, which direction do you face?
Decide what you want
…and go for it!
Don’t stop till you’ve reached your full potential.
