Last Saturday, Sean “Diddy” Combs proved many critics wrong and delivered a well-received commencement speech at Howard University. Here are some quotes that we found especially inspirational for pre-medical students:

“Take the craziest dream you ever had and go after it. Make it a reality. I don’t want you to dream, I want you to do.”

“For a lot of people, the distance between their dreams and their reality is intimidating, and they get stuck. They get paralyzed just like how I was in that marathon. And the only way forward is to be real about what it’s going to take for you to achieve those dreams.”

“You have to be honest with yourself. You have to tell yourself the truth. You have to tell yourself the truth about what it’s going to take for your to be successful. It doesn’t come easy, you’re going to have to go out there and get it.”

“Nobody is going to give you anything. There’s no rescue team coming, no National Guard, no aid coming. Nothing. You’re going to have to go out there and get it. And the only way forward is to decide you want that dream so bad that you are going to work harder, you’re going to get up earlier, you’re going to stay later, you’re going to push passed the people who doubted you, laughed at you, hated on you.”

“As you face obstacles that I’m telling you about in your life, if you ever think about stopping, I just want you to think about me singing in your ear “I thought I told you that we won’t stop, I thought I told you that we won’t stop.”
