Businessman and hip-hop mogul Master P told local students at the
Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center Friday night that success doesn’t come
without hard work.
“Never say you can’t do anything,” he said. “You’ve got to do whatever
you’ve got to do to get that foot in the door. Successful people don’t make
excuses. Unsuccessful people make excuses.”
The students were honored at the Terrebonne Parish NAACP’s 36th Annual
Freedom Fund Banquet. The students each received scholarship to
continue their education and pursue their dreams.
However, fulfilling dreams doesn’t come without a fight, Master P said
during his keynote address.
“My grandmother used to always tell me if they shut the door you go open a
window,” he said. “You’ve got to find a way in. Successful people get in.
Successful people find a way to make it happen. You’ve got to dream big and
you’ve got to tell yourself you can do it.”
