During a recent trip to Zakynthos (or Zante), I was invited by a friend of mine to give a speech on occupational orientation in a local secondary school. I came up with the following set of principles:

  1. There is no ‘I can’t’. There is only ‘I want’. Talent and financial background are far less critical factors than determination and willingness to achieve.
  2. The sky is the limit. There is no supremum to your goals and dreams.
  3. Our most valuable asset is time.
  4. We are all equal. (corollary of #3)
