This is, hands-down, one of the best ‘addresses to graduates’ you will EVER hear.
He’s accomplished. (Big-time!)
He’s offering boatloads of really great advice… the kind of advice that actually changes lives.
And it’s the perfect antidote to the poison being fed to college students today.
These are the 3 rules Lou Holtz wished he knew when he was 21.

He talks about the silver spoon he had in his mouth, before describing the room he, his sister and his parents all shared for seven years.
That ‘silver spoon’ was that valuable lesson his parents gave him.
‘That life is a matter of making choices’. Whatever you are, good or bad, it’s because of the choices you’ve made.
It’s not about finding someone to ‘blame’.
Then he talked about regret. But even that story has a thought-provoking plot twist.
There was more:
Excellence. You don’t just owe it to yourself… but to everyone else, too.
Life doesn’t have to be complicated:
He tells his audience the four things a person needs in their life. (One is ‘something to do’.)
He gives great advice on who you should (and shouldn’t) tell your problems to.
And then he closes with three rules.
1 — Have fun.
2 — Be committed to excellence, for your own sake, and for those around you.
And then his third one will make a snowflake’s head spin.
