Some may laugh at Drake for obtaining his high school diploma at the age of 26, but I commend him for reaching his goal. His uncle taught him the importance of following through and it is what motivated him to go back and do something that most wouldn’t have the courage to do. His speech is an example of why I built my site; to motivate others to follow their dreams and to EXPERIENCE their journey to the fullest. Drake explains,
I had left a gaping whole in my story of following through…we figured out how I could close my chapter of following through. Sometimes it’s about going there, not getting there. Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination. And sometimes when you get there, you’ll look back and you’ll realize that you wish you could go there again because all of the experiences that you went through are the reason that you are who you are today.
