“Now if you are anything like I was on graduation day maybe you are not feeling so fearless. maybe you are thinking about the job you are going to get, where you are going to live or how to repay that student loan. These I know are real concerns. I had them too.
But don’t let those worries stop you from making a difference. Fearlessness means taking the first step even if you don’t know where it will take you. It means being driven by a higher purpose rather than by applause. It means you reveal your character when you stand apart more than when you stand with the crowd.
If you step up without fear of failure If you talk and listen to each other without fear of rejection if you act with decency and kindness even when no one is looking even when it seems small or inconsequential – Trust me, the rest will fall into place.”
