The gist of this speech is to create awareness about what really matters day by day in your job and private life. There is no passion to be found playing small and settling for a life that’s less, than the one you are capable of living.” (Nelson Mandela). Nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks. If you want to proceed in life, you have to accept falling, although this means falling forward because you learn from your mistakes and come out of them even stronger.
He mentions: “If I am going to fall, I want to fall forward”. It’s about passion, taking chances and not being afraid of making mistakes, thinking out-side-the-box. Mistakes are unavoidable and the belief in yourself is very crucial.
Letting things be sometimes feels really good, too
