Another one!? Yes! John Legend is without a doubt one of my favourite singers, his lyricism and vocal delivery is second to none. If anyone has his contact details, swing them my way – I want him to sing at my wedding next year haha. Alas, I digress – John headed back to his university to give the speech at Penn’s 258th Commencement. Utterly brilliant speech taking a different angle to the usual: “The key to success, the key to happiness is to open your heart to love.” A R&B singer talking about love, corny right? Nope, not even close. Watch the full speech on the reverse, maybe just before you head off to work this morning. Good morning inspiration.

He shares a little about his personal life and upbringing to his big career break but mainly focuses on love. Not just loving what you do, loving your family, friends and mankind.
So love your self, love your work, love the people around you. Dare to love those who are different from you, no matter where they’re from, what they look like, and who they love. Pursue this life of love with focus and passion and ambition and courage. Give it your all. And that will be your path to true success.
