Suggestions to find happiness and achievement

Brigham Young University President Cecil O. Samuelson, who is also a member of the Seventy, welcomed students and faculty back to campus during the first campus devotional of the new year on Jan. 4 in the Marriott Center. His wife, Sister Sharon G. Samuelson, also spoke to students.

In his address, he shared seven suggestions, gleaned from personal experiences and observing others, that help students find happiness and achievement during their college experience.

"None should be surprising and all might be self-evident," he said. "All are significant and deserve our attention."

1. Self-awareness.

"All of us need to have a clear awareness of who we are, what we represent, and how we affect and influence other," he said. "At BYU, virtually all of us understand that we are literally spirit children of our Heavenly Father. This insight should and must color all decisions and choices we make in our lives, including and especially how we treat others in our families, classes, Church groups, neighborhoods and certainly strangers as well."
