“A big part of success is failure. Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case, you fail by default.” – JK Rowling
Sometimes, the best way to feel inspired is by listening to what others have to say—listening to people’s experiences, their insecurities and their successes.
Although you will never truly learn through the mistakes of others, because you can’t gain the necessary experience, listening to what others learned from their mistakes can inspire you.
In this video, five prestigious artists, Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Gaiman, Barack Obama, JK Rowling and Steve Jobs teach you that failure is the only way to really push forward.
They explain what good work means, they teach you to be yourself, they guide you to follow your passions, they implore you to ignore money, and they remind you to follow your intuition.
