Great Advice From A Terrific Woman...
Eat Pray Love was introduced to the world by none other than Oprah. She featured the longtime writer on her show, hailed the book a must-read, and ultimately propelled Elizabeth Gilbert to worldwide success. Not long after the release of the book, Julia Roberts was cast in the movie, taking viewers on an international journey to discover the true meaning of life.
You might think that given the opportunity to speak to a Ted Talk audience, Ms. Gilbert would speak about the importance of digging deep through the practice of yoga, striving for success at all cost, or some cool backstage moment with Ms. Winfrey. Nope! After a period of massive success, she talks about her subsequent failure. It is a great reminder that failing should never be the end of the story (pun intended)!
