Speaking at the University of Southern California, actor Will Ferrell gave a motivational speech.
“You are the graduating class of 2017. And from every statistical analysis you are collectively considered the strongest class to graduate from this university. You all have excelled in various courses of study.”
“No matter how ludicrous it may sound, you can’t really be successful until you learn to give beyond yourself. Empathy and kindness are true traits of emotional intelligence, and that’s what Viv and I try to teach our boys.” Do. Hey Matthias, take your hands of Axel right now! Stop it. I can see you. Okay? Dr. Ferrell is watching you,” he said.
He continued, “Congratulations to those of you sitting outside who have a pretty good idea of what you want to do with your life. Congratulations to many of you who probably have it all. No, that’s fine. This is the same chair I was sitting in. Enjoy the process of your discovery without succumbing to the pressure of the result. Trust your gut, keep throwing darts at the dartboard. Don’t listen to the critics and You will figure it out, ”the actor said in conclusion.
