Everyone knows J.K. Rowling as the author of the best-selling series Harry Potter. Most do not realize the path she walked to get where she is today. In her 2008 Harvard Commencement speech, she details just how difficult her life became before she allowed herself to be loyal to her divine identity and follow her passions. In hindsight, she says it is clear that her “failure meant a stripping away of the in-essential….” This allowed her to truly awaken. In her words:
“I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was. Had I really succeeded in anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one arena where I believed I truly belonged. I was set free. Because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive…”
“…and so ‘rock-bottom’ became a sold foundation on which I rebuilt my life…”
A truly powerful perspective.
