in Self Help
J K Rolling is the author of the Harry Potter series of books. Interesting that she's a BILLIONAIRE still gets nervous in front of people. In her talk she says:
There are benefits of failure. Imagination is very important in life. Her parents hoped she would get a "real job." J. K. Rolling pushed to live her dream. The moment you are old enough to take the wheel the responsibility is up to you. Poverty enails fear, struggle and depression. It means a thousand petty humiliations and hardships. Climbing out of poverty is difficult.
What she feared most was failure. Talent and intellegence is not always enough. In her twenties she was almost homeless and broke. She thought she was a huge failure. She had no idea how long she was going to be broke.
Failure is stripping away of what's not important. She began to direct all her energy to what she was meant to do...write books. She had a big idea. "Rock bottom was the solid foundation on which I built my life."
J. K. Rolling invested every waking hour developing her skills. She says," The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I ever earned."
Truly, a lady who didn't give up. Here is the text of her speech:

Pastor John K. Jenkins Sr. has been preaching the Good News since he was licensed as a minister at 15 years old. From an early age, he developed a love for the Lord and felt a call to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
His pastoral journey began in February 1987 when he was called to serve as the senior pastor at Union Bethel Church in King George, Va. Nearly three years of pastoring at Union Bethel proved to be the training ground for his upcoming assignment. In October of 1988, Pastor Jenkins learned of the passing of his pastor and mentor, Dr. John W. Johnson, from his home church at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden.
One year after Dr. Johnson's passing, Pastor Jenkins returned to First Baptist to become the seventh shepherd. The fruit of his biblically based teaching is evidenced in the growth of church membership from 500 to more than 10,000. Today, an average 11,000 people attend weekly Sunday services between two campuses located in Landover and Upper Marlboro, Md.
Can you see the things that God is doing? Listen, God is still supreme is his attitude. We who believe that our father is still the best for fallen mankind.
The challenge is "Now" remember the kingdom heaven suffer by force,but the violent take by force.by prayer; speaking the word;keeping the whole armour on;give no plade to darkness.
John 17: 1 Father the hour has come that you be glorified as it was in the beginning....Let's believe
