Seth Ariens is the Indiana State FFA President. Amazingly, he is also the Indiana State Star Farmer. In a great FFA state like Indiana, either one of those accomplishments puts you among the elite to ever have worn the blue jacket in the Hoosier State, but to be selected to both of those coveted positions, on the same night no less, puts you in rare air indeed!

In today's episode Seth describes his pathway to becoming a state officer. In describing this his says something that is a real key to the success that he is currently experiencing. He never looked at any of the officer positions that he held as a stepping stone. He went into all of them determined to serve as best as possible in that position, and the rest kind of took care of itself.

On the side of being the State Star Farmer, Seth has had some "happy accidents". I wouldn't call it luck however. We always say on this show that luck is preparation meets opportunity. Well, Seth looked at some things that happened as accidents and turned them into opportunities. For example, when his Australian Shepherd was unintentionally bred by another Australian Shepherd, Seth took advantage of the moment to sell the puppies and add this to his record book. His SAE was diversified agriculture, and her was another opportunity to diversify. It is this outlook on looking for opportunity that has helped to propel him to such great heights.
