Hello to everyone!
Video taken from YouTube
This video has been suggested me by a group of Facebook called "English Gathering" on Wednesday, 9 January 2013.
The subject of our conversation was:
"J.K. Rowling's Speech at Harvard Commencement".
Rowling's speech has been very inspiring.One
of the main topic was focused on the importance of failures, mistakes
and in the other hand, how tough can be for teenagers being able to
handle and get through expectations of her/his parents and society.
my life, I made a lot of mistakes as well as dealt with some
also think that it's crucial to make a mistake or a failure because
this is the main and direct way to face with your capacity and
ability to stand up and keep going with your ordinary life of an
many circumstances, my mother has been helpful. When I'm in a bad
mood because for example, I'm not be able to achieve a goal she
always tells me to try to calm down and then looking at that moment
in another perspective.
of all, might be useful to try to focus on negative and positive
aspects. Secondly, try to understand big mistakes which could have
made a huge difference between failure and success. The most
important advice is that, I have to keep concentrate on my daily
life, taking care of people who are really important for me and at
last, giving all the best I can day by day.
have to be honest! I was a lucky child because of work of my father I
travelled a lot! I met lots of people coming from many different
countries and it was great to compare myself with their habits and
I became quickly aware that every action produces consequences followed by responsibilities so, I think carefully before making a choice. Nevertheless, I keep going on making mistakes which are one of the most important part of my life!
Now, I'd be really curious to know what failures, success, and mistakes mean in your life!
lost more challenges than I won!This
it's been amazing otherwise, I couldn't become the "imperfect
person" who I am today!
