JK Inspiration - Failure & Imaginnation

Now i am a HUGE Potter fan, so of course i was going to be drawn straight away to this clip of JK on TED! Don't worry though, if you're not 'Potty' about Potter the jokes and puns are kept to a minimum and it truly an awe inspiring speech about the importance of failure and imagination.

'...Expiry date for blaming your parents for steering you in the wrong direction...'J.K.Rowling, 2008

'...Ultimately we all have to decide for ourselves what constitutes failure...'J.K.Rowling, 2008

JK explains that failure enables you to 'strip away' the inessential, you are set free because your greatest fear has been realised and that rock bottom is a solid platform for the future.

'Imagination is not only the unique human capacity to envision that which is not and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation, in its arguably most trans formative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathise with humans, whose experiences we have never shared' J.K.Rowling, 2008
