This success keynote by Malcolm Gladwell offers insights on how to become successful by using details from his own life.
Gladwell begins by explaining that when he was a child, he didn't want to attend high school. While most parents would be resistant to this idea, his mother told him that as long as he was being productive, it was okay by her. This thought process encouraged him to do what he wanted. He states that if you live your life this way, then you'll eventually be rewarded, whether it be money or something else, it wont matter because you will be sincerely happy. Malcolm's success keynote inspires others to carry this positive mindset as well.
