GLS 2b: Mayor Cory Booker “Stand Up”

cory_bookerGlobal Leadership Summit Session Two B: Cory Booker Mayor of Newark, New Jersey.

What does it mean to standup for something?  You will always face adversaries.  The world will try to reduce you to meritocracy.  But you are original.  Don’t let the world tell you who you are.  Rise.  We are here because people before us had vision and courage to stand up.

The only way to make change in the world is to start with oneself.  Right now in this moment, in any given set of circumstances, you can change the world.

[I bet this guy is going to run for president some day. You heard it here first.  He was really rockin’ the US constitution there at the end.]
