Three Must Read College Speeches

Zig Ziglar says - "Motivation doesn’t last, but neither does taking a bath. That’s why we recommend it DAILY"

Everyone could use a little motivation. Here are three speeches given for college students which gems of wisdom and a lot of motivation.. 

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish - This speech was given by Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple Computers. A must read speech. Read it here. If I have to take one line of it, this is it - "
Your time is limited, so dont waste it by living somebody else's life.

Fringe Benefits of Failure & Importance of Imagination - This speech was given by the JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter series. "
Failure meant the stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was something other than what I was and began to work on finishing the only work that mattered to me.

Keep the Spark Alive - This speech was given by Chetan Bhagat, the author of Five Point Someone and other famous novels. Biggest take from this speech is "
As you grow older you will realize you are unique. When you are little, all kids want Ice cream and Spiderman. As you grow older to college, you still are a lot like your friends. But ten years later and you realize you are unique. What you want, what you believe in, what makes you feel, may be different from even the people closest to you."
