Today’s Inspiration – Success, Failure, and the Drive to Keep Creating

From TED: “Elizabeth Gilbert was once an “unpublished diner waitress,” devastated by rejection letters. And yet, in the wake of the success of ‘Eat, Pray, Love,’ she found herself identifying strongly with her former self. With beautiful insight, Gilbert reflects on why success can be as disorienting as failure and offers a simple — though hard — way to carry on, regardless of outcomes.”

Enjoy this lovely seven minute TED Talk today as we explore what success, failure, and the drive of creativity have meant to our writing.

“Rape is a shame!
Not for the victim, but for the rapist,
Who played it as a game!
How could some cruelly crush someone’s innocent soul?
Than proudly not only shame blame
But flame the fire they have set for themselves in both of the worlds!
Heaven they think they got, which all know is actually hell!
I tell you Allah will never spare you!
For this act worse than even the word shame!
Because you did this heinous crime
And I assure you that you have gotten a visa for hell!
Without any passport
Any visa
Or even without any stamp!”
