Elder Huntsman: 'God did not put us here to fail'

"God did not put us here to fail," Elder Jon M. Huntsman Sr., an Area Seventy in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, prominent businessman and philanthropist, told BYU students during the university's weekly devotional Nov. 10, in the Marriott Center.

"I would say to you, have faith in yourself — believe in what you are doing and most importantly, be a person of integrity," said Elder Huntsman. "It is totally up to you and no one else how your life evolves."

Elder Huntsman spoke of the personal responsibility each individual has in shaping his or her own future, and the importance of goal setting and hard work.

"What we become, who we are and the footprint we will leave in life is based entirely on our own determination, hard work, education and sacrifice," he said. "Our Heavenly Father expects the best from each of us. We must believe in ourselves."
