Andy Albright Speaks at Western Alamance High
BURLINGTON, N.C. – National Agents Alliance President and Chief Executive Officer Andy Albright visited students at Western Alamance High School on Tuesday, talking about his life since graduating from the school, discussing what National Agents Alliance does and encouraging students to make wise decisions in life.
Albright, who played football, basketball and baseball for the Warriors before matriculating to North Carolina State University, urged the students not to let their high school days be the best times of their lives.
“Don’t get me wrong, high school is a fun time and it’s exciting, but there is so much more out there for you if you want to go for it,” Albright said. “It’s hard for many of you to realize that now, but the world is filled with opportunities if you are willing to work for your dreams.”
“Right now, things seem like major events in your life, but I want you to realize that down the road it’s probably not that big of a deal. The sooner you realize that most things are minor deals, and very few things are major events in your life, the better off you will be.”
After graduating from N.C. State, Albright and his wife, Jane lived outside of Fayetteville, N.C. for 10 years before moving back to the Burlington area in 1997. In 2002, Albright co-founded National Agents Alliance.
Albright encouraged students to ask questions, think about their surroundings and embrace that they do know things that others do not.
“It’s up to you what you pick, it’s not about doing what everybody else does,” Albright said. “Sometimes the little decisions we make are the biggest choices we make in life. At the time, it might not seem like a potential life-changing decision, but years later you realize you did the right thing when you could have easily done what would have been the wrong thing.”
Albright mixed in various stories from his time as a student at Western Alamance and had the students laughing for much of his visit. Near the end of his message, Albright fielded questions from several students. He gave each student a copy of the National Agents Alliance newsletter and copies of his book, The 8 Steps to Success, which he personally autographed for the students.
“Most people win in life just because they work more,” Albright said. “It’s not because they are more talented, it’s just because they work more. Some people are given special talents, but then if they also work hard at something they are going to be that much farther ahead. If you are smart and you work hard, then you cannot touch that.”
