Diddy is a father , multi award winner, artist, producer, entrepreneur, actor, innovator and the list stretches for miles. As a highly successful business man , he's always shared motivational information to push you to excel and follow your dreams. In 2014 Diddy, a former student of Howard University attended the graduation ceremony and gave the Commencement Speech. During the speech Diddy thanked the staff and his mother for working hard to get him through school. He also told the graduates, that in order to be successful they have to be real with themselves , be honest , and to go out and get it. He said "It won't be easy but there's no rescue team coming". He wanted the class of 2014 to know that they have to get up earlier, stay later, and push pass doubters and haters to achieve greatness . He also informed them not to be afraid to fail, to be decisive, and to remember the power of you. That no matter how dark it gets, no matter how hard you fall, that you have to "Remember the power of you and that you are your own light". Wow! Those words are powerful words to live by! I attended college but didn't get to graduate college so I always find Commencement Speeches to be enlightening and exciting. If I was in attendance at that graduation, I would cherish those words forever. Diddy takes education seriously and wants the younger generation to be leaders and to dream big.
