Achieving Success

 

Achieving success is often related to hard work and sacrifices. And when to some people success comes easy, to others it doesn’t. There are many factors which contribute to achieving our dreams and one of them is motivation. One of the best ways to stay motivated is by getting inspired by other people who managed to accomplish great things, especially entrepreneurs.

Watch the 4 motivational speeches thanks to which you will learn why there is nothing wrong with failing, why it’s important to do what you love but also never give up on your dreams.

 

1. Oprah Winfrey Harvard Commencement speech

In her extremely inspirational and smart, at moments funny, speech, the famous media entrepreneur shares her story, her struggles, but also tells what to do in order to be successful. She also gives a great advice on how to change the world.

“It doesn’t matter how far you might raise, at some point you’re about to stumble because if you’re constantly doing what we do – raising the bar, f you’re constantly pushing yourself higher, higher, the law of averages, not to mention the myth of Icarus, predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do, I want you to know this, remember this, there is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”

 

2. Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks – including death itself – at the university’s 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005. Steve Jobs also talks about finding the work you love and never giving up.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in yur future (…). Because believeing that the dots will connect dow the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path, and that will make all the difference.”
