From Sef Scott – Unexpected
“I would imagine that to the seniors that know who I am that it is entirely unexpected that I would be standing here giving a speech,” is how this graduation speech begins.
The entire six minute speech is fantastic and worth a listen, but if you’re really crunched for time, then skip to the 4 minute mark for Sef’s advice about following your own path. This fits in perfectly with those of use that are bucking society’s traditional life path to create one of financial independence and early retirement.
“Don’t follow someone else’s dreams. Don’t waste time on something you never wanted. Do the unexpected. It is your life that you are living, not anyone else’s. So do what fulfills you. Don’t fear the future. Don’t fear the unknown. Will it be unexpected? Yes. Yes, it will. But that does not make it wrong,”
