The Thought We are surrounded with opportunities and a great University, at the same time there is a lot of competition in the real world. !
What are you going to do to stand out? !
Do it now.
The Script What does it take to get started on an idea? Brilliant thoughts flow through the mind, but become trapped by an inner struggle. Itâ€™s laziness and self-doubt that are the evils of the world â€“ forcing the idea into submission. How do we start the foundation for innovation? Is it passion? Dedication? Or a driving force that gets the idea out there? We need to set our minds free, to continuously push ourselves to create.
! We are the ball and chain imprisoning our thoughts; we are the gatekeepers guarding our potential. Who will stand above all, letting their genius show? The productive mind is the brilliant mind: one that works towards forming concepts into reality.
! We must imagine, we must self-inspire, we must do it now.

The Idea We asked University of Oregon students
What did you do today that you're proud of? ! !
What was something you didn't do today? !
Our goal is to see what types of goals people had, and also by thinking about what goals wereâ€™t achieved would help people want to start them now.

Surrounding yourself with hard working, inspired individuals is the key to accomplishing goals.
Be the Top 10% Whatever you put into it, is what you will get out of it. Hard work and perseverance beats luck. Curiosity outweighs fear. Surround yourself with the best. Where we are, shapes who we are. BE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SHIP.

Tips from Tracy 1) Ego hides opportunities. Don’t be an asshole, you ARE NOT your ideas. 2) A great idea: 99% strategy. 3) Knowledge talks, wisdom listens. 4) Embrace compromise. 5) WE>ME. Anything is possible as long as no one cares who gets the credit. 6) Listening creates trust, which kills fear.
