Abu-Ghazaleh to Students of Baptist School in Amman: True Happiness Lies in Giving
During a visit to Amman Baptist School, HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh told students that happiness is a discretionary choice that is not granted or offered, but a voluntary decision made by an individual towards himself and others.
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh was invited by the school management, as an influential and inspirational figure and prominent role model, to meet and share his motivational and inspirational success story with students and to offer encouragement.
Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh was received by Rev. Suheil Madanat, head of the Jordan Baptist Community, Principal of the School Ms. Yara Gossous, teachers and the School Parent Council.
During his meeting with students of Amman Baptist School, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh underlined every human being's core mission of setting a practicable goal in life, which the individual should seek to achieve regardless of circumstances. He continued to say that power and strength stems from determination, clear vision, challenge and commitment to work as opposed to power and money, noting that our ability to excel increases with the growth of love and tolerance towards others adding that love is the most contagious condition in the world and that love and contentment were amongst the most valuable notions he learned at the Christian Schools he attended.
Talking to students, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh highlighted the importance of the decisions young people make and their responsibility that will shape their personalities and prepare them for the future. He also pointed out that talent doesn’t need to be discovered, as the age of knowledge enables it to emerge automatically without requiring any assistance. He went on to state that the establishment of global giant corporations were based on simple ideas that emerged from the most difficult circumstances by entrepreneurs and innovators who went on to expand globally.
Moreover, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh pointed out that 'Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University College for Applied Business and IT' which he recently established and will open its doors to students from September, is the first university college of its kind that aims at serving society by requiring graduating students to create a new feasible invention as a graduation requirement.
In her speech, Gossous welcomed Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh and praised his great achievements as a personality with extraordinary influence and expressed appreciation for his efforts in developing knowledge capacities and quality of education at the national level and building Arab knowledge societies. She extended her gratitude for his visit and for providing students with great motivation by meeting with such an inspirational personality who succeeded in achieving success through suffering, patience and perseverance; the values that role models such as Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh should instill in the students.
At the beginning of the gathering with the students, student Marian Bandek delivered a welcome speech on behalf of the students and recited some of her poetry which was admired by all.
At the end of the meeting, Rev. Madanat presented an honorary shield to Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh in recognition of his outstanding efforts and achievements at the national, Arab and international levels.
Moreover, ‘Talal Ibn Adeebah’ story was distributed to students. The story, written by author Areej Younis, chronicles the story of Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh from his childhood during which he was forced to leave his homeland to the achievement of great success. The story serves as an example of achieving success against obstacles and challenges.
It is noteworthy to mention that Talal Ibn Adeebah received Ministry of Education approval to be available and displayed at all public and private school libraries, since it serves as an educational tool incorporating positive values and messages for children.
