The brick walls are there for a reason…

This is one of my favorite Ted Talks. This was a series of talks where each person had to give a lecture as if it was their last one.


In 2007, Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch, who was dying of pancreatic cancer, delivered a one-of-a-kind last lecture that made the world stop and pay attention. This moving talk will teach you how to really achieve your childhood dreams. Unmissable.

The Link to the lecture is here, it is worth taking the time to look at it – Enjoy

My favorite quote from this is the following

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”
