From Life as a Classroom to Successfully Seizing Potential

— July 17, 2013 — Eco
These curated speeches focus on the importance of seizing opportunity in one's professional and personal life. The world today is extremely hectic and chaotic, constantly pulling an individual in many directions; these speeches offer strategies for navigating one's way through all that noise and making smart decisions.

The speech by Sheryl Sandberg features an amazing quote that really summarizes seizing opportunity in the world today, particularly for young people: "If you're asked to take a seat on a rocket ship, don't ask what seat, just get on." According to Sandberg, the landscape of employment is significantly different to what it was thirty and forty years ago and it is important take all chances as they come. Much of the future is unknown and it is important to not be left behind.

The speech by Oprah Winfrey discusses each day in life as a unique opportunity to learn something new about ourselves and the world around us. According to Winfrey, seizing opportunity means being open minded and dedicated to improving one's self in every stage of life.

President Barack Obama sees seizing opportunity as a collective act, and that to make the most out of each day requires a collective effort.

These speeches will inspire you, whether it be for personal or professional matters.
