J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement: “What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.”

The Benefits of Failure

Fail your way to success.”

Albert Einstein famously said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

In other words, what we can see in our imagination today we may experience in life tomorrow. He also said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” He knew that we humans are limited by how much we can learn, but we are never limited by how much we can imagine.

I have come to realize that I am held back far more by my lack of imagination than by my circumstances. When I believe nothing can be done, I search for a way OUT of the difficulty when I OUGHT to be searching for solutions.

“What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.”

― J.K. Rowling

“Together, one mind, one soul, one life, one small step at a time, let’s see how many people we can encourage, impact, enrich, empower… and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials.”
