My young brothers, today I will give you the secret to success so that you can go out and conquer the world. The secret is very simple. It’s no certain formula, pattern or specific series of events. Joining a particular organization won’t guarantee it. Neither will the school you attend or the degree you obtain. The secret is nothing more than to try. Quite simply, you can’t succeed at a thing if you don’t try. I can’t say it’ll be the first, second, third, fourth or fifth try. But you must know TRYING, isn’t all about success or lack of it. Some give minimal effort and find huge success. You might try your entire life at a particular thing and never succeed, but if you quit you’ll never know if you could have succeeded. Life occurs and things happen, so simply trying can be hard at times, especially fir a young black male. No matter what you have to do or go through to succeed in life, always try to be the smoothest brother in the room.”
