Watch Out World, Here Comes FFA!

On Friday, the team had the chance to meet with one of MN FFA's Distinguished Star Partners and supporter of the Teach Ag Campaign.  CHS Inc. is a cooperative that works with transporting grains and energy.  We were able to tour the facilities in Savage, MN and the headquarters in Inver Grove Heights.  While at the Savage location, we were guided by Greg.  Greg told us about everything that CHS Inc. is involved in and he always had a couple words of wisdom to go along with it.  And this wisdom is just too good not to share....

"I wish I were in your positions.  At your age and being in FFA, you all have more opportunities than you could imagine and you have the whole world in front of you."

 How can you disagree with that?  Greg is as right as it gets.  We have the whole world in front of us--but this doesn't mean that we will find success just sitting around doing nothing, we have to go out there and do something.  Being in FFA gives you the opportunity to prepare for your future, develop your leadership skills, find your lifelong passion, and be the person you want to be, so don't let it pass you by!

"All we do here at CHS Inc is move grain, but the key is that we do it better than anyone else."
Take a moment to think of all the opportunities you have in your life--right here, right now.

Now decide which of these you are going to pursue.  What are you going to do with your life to make it purposeful?

 So how committed are you going to be to that opportunity, that way of life?  CHS Inc. is completely committed to what they do, which is why they are so good at it.  So are you going to push yourself to do your best?  Is your best better than anyone else's best?  Whatever you choose to do, do it whole-heartedly and truly invest yourself, because giving it anything less than what you are really capable of is a waste.  This is our world and it's up to us to make it better than how we found it, but we need YOU to do that.

Can't wait to see what you do :)
