The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination

This chat from J.K. Rowling is about two years old now. But as I watch several of my friends update their facebook statuses saying they’re done I can only hope that they’ve watched this video. The words of J.K. Rowling in this speech are not only insightful but also inspiring. I strongly suggest that you not only take  a few minutes to watch it but also share it when you’re done.

Who knows, it could change someones life.

Thank you very much for sharing this great video. It's really motivational, encouraging and brings back a little hope to keep on fighting, moving and growing.

And I hope too, that your friends have watched this video and change their mind.

As it was said in this speech: The moment you're old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you!” Everyone should take the responsibility for his life and make it the way he wants it to be.

Thanks for swinging by Mariam. I really appreciate your comment.

I couldn't agree with you more in saying that everyone should take responsibility for their own life and make it what they want it to be. In my opinion, when we are of age to make decisions on our own we must also take responsibility for our actions.. You get out of life what you put in…
