Gordon B. Hinckley's Six B's: A Prophet's Counsel and Prayer for Youth
The Prophet’s Counsel:
I think there never before was a meeting anything like this in this Church. There are so many of you here tonight. How good you look. Some of you have come with doubts. Some have come with high expectations. I want you to know that I have been on my knees asking the Lord to bless me with the power and the capacity and the language to reach into your hearts.
Have a look…. In Gordon B. How great, then, is your responsibility so to live that the Spirit of the Lord may dwell in you and that the Holy Ghost may speak through you. I would that I had the capacity, the gift of the Spirit, to speak with such power that your hearts would burn with a resolution so to live as to grow in favor with both God and man. The wonderful thing is that this is not beyond your capacity. The course of our lives is not determined by great, awesome decisions. Our direction is set by the little day-to-day choices which chart the track on which we run.

I also knew that if I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father to help me make improvements in my life then He could make my weaknesses become my strengths see Ether If I had a negative thing to say, I would replace it with something positive. This took a lot of effort at first, and then I noticed that it got easier to be more positive. I felt better — even happier about myself, my friends, and everything in my life. The more I acted, the more I noticed a change in my attitude, and my family and friends could tell that I was happier and wanted to be around me.
