Ok I will say up front that this is NOT the manifesto I was planning for this week! And also, the below breaks my rules of being original content either from myself, or someone who has gifted me with their words.
HOWEVER, I saw the words below doing the rounds on facebook and I thought they were too powerful not to share. And also, they were just very simply typed out so I thought I could dress them up a bit and make them even MORE shareable!
I also don’t like to come across as even a little bit preachy or judgmental and I realise the below could be interpreted that way, but if you look through to the the underlying message I think you will agree that it applies to pretty much everyone: the world doesn’t owe us a thing, it is up to us to make something of ourselves, no matter what challenges we face along the way.
The words are credited to an unnamed judge as told by the principal of Northland College in New Zealand – John Tapene.
