“The Million Dollar Man”, Ted DiBiase spoke to the students of MBAC about “Choices” during the Lunch and Learn Session. “Don’t do what everyone else is doing just because everyone else is doing it”, DiBiase said. He told the students the harder you work the better you’ll be. Also that champions are champions because they do ordinary things better than anyone else. Therefore, you should chase your dreams. Additionally, he told the students, “You can be and do anything you put your mind to if you are willing to work hard for it.” One of the things he stressed was to stay away from “naysayers”. Naysayers are negative because they can’t do it themselves.
Further pearls of wisdom, real friends will never trash your dreams, and that a real friend believes in you and he will encourage you; while a fair weather friend is only there when it is convenient for him, were imparted as well.
Mr. DiBiase said, “Don’t let pride and ego get in the way your dreams. The real measure of a man is not how much money you make, or the type of car you drive, or the house you live in. No, the real measure of a man is the strength of his character and the strength of his word. A real man is only as good as his word. If his word is no good, he is not a real man.” Mr. DiBiase ended the session by encouraging us to take the helm of the ship and be the leader of your home.
