POST 4 by Jessie Scanlon from the TED conference:
“In one of the most memorable moments of the conference, motivational speaker Tony Robbins was talking about failure, and how we fail when we lack resources or support. “Or the Supreme Court,” Al Gore yelled from his seat in the audience. This brought laughs and Robbins jumped off the stage to give Gore a high five.
But when Robbins returned to stage and continued the talk, he said “Those things we say we lack are excuses. If you had shown the passion that I saw in your talk on Wednesday night, you would have beaten him and won.”
