A week after I arrived at home my neighbour and a close friend of mine asked me to talk to her class about the road to success. She had recently graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand. She figured out that the teenagers needed some form of motivation either than from her. I gladly accepted the offer and themed my talk with the first group as “every day is a good day”
We met around the university; I was looking for the IT department to fix the problem with my student password. “Please hold the lift” I yelled as I registered the good looking person standing alone in the lift. I quickly made my way in as the lift as it automatically shut its doors. “What will you give me as a reward for holding the lift for you?” you probably asking yourself if this had happened, honestly, it actually did happen. “Anything but not money” I replied. With my strength being able to create conversations that would arouse engagement, I found myself talking on my own leaving no room for B to tell me anything about b’s world.
What is your cliché? Do you even have one? Well as people, most of us do not take the time to think of a motto, and motivate ourselves as we live life. Why do I need to have a motto? Well Mr, Miss or Mrs Try a cliché. It is important for humans to be highly motivated and have some encouragement in life. Whether your cliché is about love, music, talent at a certain point you will need it to get by.
A cliché assists us in sticking on track and getting through life. As Rihanna would say in her song “Life is too short to be sitting around being miserable” my motto in life was born. Now here comes the big question. What is your motto?

"Make sure that you smile when you get on stage, right through to the second you get off, and look at the cameras.” My cousin’s advice popped in my head, Khanyi who had recently graduated in Transport economics in the past two months.
