Students Told "People Make People Successful"

GREENVILLE – “Look at your neighbor… how many do you think will be president of the United States?” Three students raised their hands. “How many will be on the 10 Most Wanted list?” Students laughed as 25 or 30 raised their hands…

Motivational speaker Chad Foster, during the first of two sessions at Memorial Hall, part of Manufacturing Day Oct. 3, gave several hundred Greenville and Versailles High School 10th graders three keys to success… communication, education and “pursue your dreams.”

“This is a journey,” he said. “Where you start is nothing like where you’ll end up. However… when you start does!”

Foster talked about his education. He said the school told him they’d give him a plan for success. “They didn’t tell me the truth,” he continued. “They didn’t give me a plan. All they did was educate me.” The author and former ESPN host told the students he drove around the country for two years, looking for those who are most successful. From his observations he developed his keys to success.

“Nobody succeeds without knowledge; get your education! Get that degree, but remember it’s just a piece of paper. It’s the knowledge you gained… what you learned.”

Foster told them they should be talking to strangers. “I know that’s strange to hear today,” he said, “but you have to communicate.” He talked about being on an elevator with two teens, adding they looked down the entire time. Counting their feet. Then they counted their feet again.

“Communicating, talking to people is critically important,” he said. “You never know what will come of that. People make people successful.”

He told the students to follow their dreams. “Sometimes dreams come true, but not always,” noting however they are a “big deal for your future.” He talked about his sister-in-law who always wanted to be a professional basketball player. “She was 4’ 11” tall. She grew two more inches…” She worked at it, practiced and upon graduation was among the top five female players in the country. In college she was an All-American. “She was invited to the U.S. Olympic team… and came home with a gold medal.” He told them they should be doing “a little something” every day to pursue their dreams.
