Sean Diddy Combs
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

Say what you will about Sean Combs, but for him, the sky really is the limit. Know why?  Because he makes it so!

This year, Combs has been tapped to deliver the commencement address at his alma mater, Howard University in Washington, DC.

Just how big of a deal is this?  Combs will join the likes of: President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and many more prominent Americans that have been bestowed such honor.

Howard University is one of the premiere HBCU’s, and has students from every race and color from all over the world.  It has long been considered an outstanding example of excellence in education for African-Americans.

Though the announcement comes with mixed reviews, what better person can speak on the value of hard-work?  He truly is self-made!  And though his career called him before he would complete his four years at the university, let’s not discount the knowledge and wisdom which comes from experience.

He believes it’s motivating to be a model of success.  Saying, “I think I’m an example of working for what you want,” and it’s that manifestation of drive and determination that has catapulted him to greatness.

His story is an inspirational one!  A true visionary at just 44, his accomplishments are vast.  And for the man who never sleeps; I’d be willing to bet this accomplishment ranks-high because deep down inside, everyone wants to be regarded as smart.

This gives him that validation.

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, a man who has garnered such comments as:

  • “He challenges you to go beyond what you thought possible.”

A man who coined the phrase, “Let me show you how to do this son.”  Indeed he has.
