Clemens von Stengel, a student at The City of London School, introduces his talk on fulfillment by considering how many people hold themselves back by saying "no."
He says that the first step in reaching one's true potential is taking the initiative to get a plan started, rather than coming up with excuses as to why it can't be done. Next, goals have to be set to ensure that progress is made at a reasonable rate. Although staying committed to a difficult project can sometimes be difficult, von Stengel states that it can be helpful to collaborate with another person so that everyone is more motivated to keep going so that they don't let each other down. In addition, he says that telling friends and family members about a project can increase success rates. Throughout von Stengel's talk on fulfillment, he shows that not saying no can yield amazing results, and can enable someone to learn much more in the process.
With this, von Stengle inspires his audience to carry their ideas through so that they can achieve success.
