Be inspired by the book behind the graduation speech by Dr. Rick Rigsbys now with 100+ million views on Facebook and YouTube.
After his wife died, Rick Rigsby was ready to give up. The bare minimum was good enough. Rigsby was content to go through the motions, living out his life as a shell of himself. But then he remembered the lessons his father taught him years before - something insanely simple, yet incredibly profound.
These lessons werent in advanced mathematics or the secrets of the stock market. They were quite straightforward, in fact, for Rigsbys father never made it through third grade. But if this uneducated mans instructions were powerful enough to produce a Ph.D. and a judge imagine what they can do for you.
Join Rigsby as he dusts off time-tested beliefs and finds brilliantly simple answers to modern societys questions. In a magnificent testament to the "Greatest Generation" which gave so much and asked so little in return, Lessons from a Third Grade Dropout will challenge you while reigniting your passion to lead a truly fulfilling life.
After all, its never too late to learn a little bit more about life just ask the third-grade dropout.
