"Whatever dream it is,
these are the four steps to success
This is the essence of what Ellison Onizuka shared with everyone:
1. We have to be good people.
That's something we completely have control over - how we treat each other, and how honest we are, how much our personal integrity is. It matters. It really does.
2. Study Hard!
The more you know, the more opportunity you have to do fun things.
3. Dream Big!
Ellison really was into this. You know, you're only limited by what your imagination is, so might as well dream big. Don't sell yourself short. The things that we're doing today were just imaginary things, dreams from the people int he past.
4. Never Give Up!
Along the way, the people that have been the most successful are the people that have failed the most sometimes."
