When you think you know everything, look around for what…

compass…it is that you are missing.

Some motivational speeches from some great people

Address by Jim Carrey, Maharishi University of Management:

“…I am here to plant a seed that will inspire you to move forward in life with enthusiastic hearts and a clear sense of wholeness. The question is, will that seed have a chance to take root…

…Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you…

…Fear is going to be a player in your life, but you get to decide how much. You can spend your whole life imagining ghosts, worrying about your pathway to the future, but all there will ever be is what’s happening here, and the decisions we make in this moment, which are based in either love or fear…

…So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it.”

David Foster Wallace’s 2005 Kenyon College commencement speech:

“Many of us are oblivious to our own close-mindedness. We picture ourselves as the centres of our own, individual universes, instead of seeing the bigger, more interconnected picture…

…If you’re automatically sure that you know what reality is and who and what is really important, if you want to operate on your default setting, then you, like me, probably won’t consider possibilities that aren’t annoying and miserable. But if you’ve really learned how to think, how to pay attention, then you’ll know you have other options. It will actually be within your power to experience a crowded, hot, slow, consumer hell-type situation as not only meaningful, but sacred — on fire with the same force that lit the stars: love, fellowship, the mystical oneness of all things deep down.”

J.K. Rowling’s 2008 Harvard commencement speech:

“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”

“Many prefer not to exercise their imaginations at all. They choose to remain comfortably within the bounds of their own experience, never troubling to wonder how it would feel to have been born other than they are.”
