A very special guest speaker gave the commencement address at Northwestern University Friday: world-renowned ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov.

During his speech, he told the graduating seniors to try better at what they do -- not necessarily the best -- saying that the word "best" is just a label and "better" is more personal.

He also told the graduates to think of success on its own terms.

Baryshnikov received his own honorary degree from the university.
