An 87-Year-Old Graduate's Touching Reminder of What Really Matters

What stood-out to me were the four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success that the 87 year old graduate mentions during her speech at the graduation ceremony:

There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success:

1) You have to laugh and find humor every day.

2) You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it!

3) There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight. Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding the opportunity in change.

4) Have no regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets."
