0:00
I know that right now is a difficult
00:03
time for you you haven’t done well in
00:06
your metric whilst others are
00:09
celebrating that they are now going to
00:11
university you are wondering what the
00:15
future holds for you because you haven’t
00:16
done well in your high school you feel
00:19
that you’ve wasted 12 years of your life
00:23
going to school and nothing has come out
00:26
of it it’s normal failure is hard
00:33
failure is difficult not everybody can
00:38
handle it but the most important thing
00:41
is that as long as you’re alive
00:45
you have an opportunity to change the
00:47
situation as long as you’re still
00:50
breathing you have a chance to rectify
00:54
the mistakes you made maybe it was the
01:00
friends you were hanging around maybe it
01:03
was how you studied maybe it was your
01:06
circumstance maybe it was your teacher
01:08
your parents it could have been anything
01:14
but you’re here now it’s not the end of
01:20
the world
01:21
it never is because if you ask if you go
01:25
around and ask you’ll find that
01:26
everybody was successful has failed in
01:29
his fealty simile I’d bigger things than
01:33
metric but they are where they are right
01:38
now because they did not give up they
01:40
stood up and said I will try again oh I
01:44
will try it differently but I’m not
01:46
gonna give up I’m gonna push and be the
01:50
best I can be and bring out the best
01:52
version of me I will not surrender to
01:57
failure because failure sake shall come
02:00
but failure shall not keep me down
02:03
failure shall push me to the corner but
02:07
I will fight my way back as long as I’m
02:13
breathing as long as I’m alive I am
02:17
gonna go back to school even if it means
02:20
going two years back three years back to
02:23
grade 10 or 11 and starting again and
02:27
doing what we have to do in order to
02:30
succeed it’s hard I know how you’re
02:38
feeling right now and I mean seeing your
02:41
friends going preparing for varsity and
02:44
and all and you have no plans that is
02:51
difficult but I urge you today to say
02:55
take this failure as the best lesson
02:59
that ever happened to you take this as
03:01
an opportunity to reconfigure your life
03:03
and move forward from now on
03:06
you know that you have it within you to
03:10
be able to turn around any situation so
03:13
use that because everybody is that
03:16
ability metric is not big it’s not the
03:21
end of the world in some they pass
03:28
metric but they do nothing meaningful
03:30
afterwards so it’s up to you to say I
03:34
have a path that I’m trading and it’s
03:38
different from the others but I’m gonna
03:41
make it work and also University is not
03:45
the only way to success in life there
03:49
are so many avenues out there that are
03:52
open for you to be able to explore and
03:55
find happiness and find joy and find
04:00
fulfillment the most important thing is
04:06
do not give up because a man or woman
04:10
who does not have hope cannot be helped
04:17
that person is as good as dead hold on
04:22
to your hope and say yes I can and yes I
04:27
will and change your life for the better
04:30
I know you can pray hard work hard and
04:39
be the best version of you
