Short clip from Oprah's 2013 Harvard Commencement Speech. To find true success and happiness, ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that.
Real meaning, purpose, and fulfillment takes time.
Lady Gaga: “Cry, then go kick some ass.”
Call "Success" whatever you like.
Call it happiness, call it love, contribution, purpose, meaning, call it achievement or fulfillment.
No matter what words you use to express it, and regardless...
Life is short, and your time here is sacred. So LIVE!! your life, to the fullest - with meaning, purpose, passion, and fulfillment! You can realize your dreams and become your best self! That's why you're here. Do more of what you love, and be more of who you love. Seize Your Passion!
The debate is still out on how people can find success in life. The problem, of course, remains that success looks different to everyone.
Jay Shetty sits down with Tom Bilyeu to discuss passion, purpose, and everything in between. He breaks down key steps in building your ideal life, bridging practical studies with spiritual insight, gaining self-awareness, and shares his answers to the 3 questions he gets asked the most [HINT: #1 has to do with Passion]. Eloquent, enlightened, inspiring, wise beyond his years, (and easy on the eyes), Jay shares his story and his insights in such a powerful way!
"Our purpose ignites our passion and drives us to get to the next level in life...We’re here to learn and grow, and this talk on connecting with our passion is a great tool."
Walt Disney is one of the enduring cultural icons of the past few generations, and much of both his success and his level of fulfillment can be traced back to his craftsmanship at work. Most of us have careers that last between 30 to 50 years. That’s a significant part of life, and the only way to ensure they mean something is to treat what you do with the right intention. There’s an artisan in all of us. Whether or not it shows through depends on our daily choices.
"The question we've got to ask ourselves is what success is to us, what success is to you...Continue to ask yourself that question. Now, your answer may change over time and that's fine. But do yourself this favor: Whatever your answer is, don't choose anything that will jeopardize your soul. Prioritize who you are, who you want to be, and don't spend time with anything that antagonizes your character....Be discerning. Choose it because you want it. Do it because you want to....Guilt and regret kills many a man before their time....You are the author of the book of your life."
