Inspirational Video Speech: The Fringe Benefits of Failure (Must Listen) by JK Rowlings

Dear All,

Below is the link to a video commencement speech by JK Rowlings, the author of Harry Potter series.

She was a dismal failure earlier in her life -- divorced, jobless & failed to achieve her dreams. But through her determination & imagination, she made it.

She speaks with clarity, sincerity and an unassuming humour too.

The video is a great motivational video for teachers & students. There's a complete transcript of her speech at the site as well.

It's brilliant - moving and inspiring.


Best regards,

Rodney Tan
