The theme of this conference is “Young, Gifted and Striving For Excellence: Fulfilling the Legacy”. But what does that mean? More importantly, what is Excellence and what is Legacy ?
We usually define excellence as “better than good” or “ better than the standard”. The word “ Excellence ” comes from a word that means “to excel” and it happens to be present tense. What about legacy? Originally, legacy meant “a body of persons sent on a mission”. Now we define it as “anything handed down from the past”
Somewhere along the way we stopped handing our men a mission and started concentrating on owning one another’s stuff. Somewhere in the generational race we dropped the baton.
If we look at a legacy as a baton, then we can see that there is only one of two things that can happen: we either pass it or drop it. When you make a good pass you are passing on a legacy that propels the next person forward. And when we drop the baton, it causes us and the next man to stumble.
So what cycle would you like to begin? Or, what cycle are you willing to break in order to create one? Fail to Break= Drop Baton Break and Re-create= Pass The Baton, Create a Legacy Tardiness, Inconsistency=Reliability, Professionalism Manipulation, Selfishness=Loyalty, Motivation
#1) Define Your Victory #2) Find Fuel For Your Rocket
By creating a cycle you establish a link or connection to the next wave of leaders. Everyone creates cycles, but will yours be a legacy worth receiving?
Exposure is the influence that forms the “future-you”. You are the future of someone else. When you do not become a “future-you” that advances society, but instead delays it or destroys it, you are dropping the baton.
"What manner of man is this grim figure who has performed these superb toils and loosed these frightful evils?" – Winston Churchill in Great Contemporaries (1935)
systematic murder of 17 million civilians, six million Jews in the Holocaust. family moved to Lambach in There, Hitler attended a Catholic school located in an 11th-century Benedictine cloister whose walls were engraved in a number of places with crests containing the symbol of the swastika had a troubled relationship with father, who frequently beat him Hitler was expelled, never to return to school again
His father wanted his son to follow in his footsteps as an Austrian customs official, and this became a huge source of conflict between them lived in a shelter for the homeless Vienna at that time was a hotbed of traditional religious prejudice and 19th century racism

Exposure is the revealing of life’s plans. If you are exposed to the secrets, and you do not share them, then you are dropping the baton. Everyone is exposed to something that someone needs to know.
So what will you be worth? What is your self-price? How profitable will you be to this world? What will you change? Everyone exists as a solution to a problem. The more problems you solve, the higher your value will become.
At age of 12, created Super Nintendo games that he sold for $10 each Soon he built a Web site for a vitamin supplement retailer, which earned him $3,800 Discovered that a company made $800,000 from the Web site he'd built. Created GoFerretGo.com, a job-posting Web site for high school and college students that eventually was valued at $3.5 million.
By never establishing what you are worth, your self-price, you can be easily bought and easily sold. People who are invested are called Gifts. People who are bought are called slaves. When you never realize your worth, you set a standard of slavery—we never move forward, and we drop the baton.
"The bill is not simply a momentary pause on the part of busy men engaged in the conduct of the war, to do honor to one of the truly great Americans of this country, but it is in essence a blow against the Axis, it is in essence a war measure in the sense that it will further unleash and release the energies of roughly 15,000,000 Negro people in this country for full support of our war effort.”
