The Fringe Benefits of Failure

I started watching this clip because I like Harry Potter but mostly because I've been feeling like a big failure lately and I was interested in finding some fringe benefits to my current state of affairs. I have to say though this speech turned out to be so much more in every way. It's just so good. It's long, but I promise entirely worth it.

TED Talks: At her Harvard University commencement speech, "Harry Potter" author JK Rowling offers some powerful, heartening advice to dreamers and overachievers, including one hard-won lesson that she deems "worth more than any qualification I ever earned."
