There is a quote that I almost use in the Harry Potter book. "In magic, man has to trust himself." But that is the perennial appeal of magic, the idea that we ourselves have power and can shape our world. I come from a place where I was with one, I was a single mother and really went in person at one time. He was as literally as poor as you can get in Britain without being homeless at one point. If you've ever been there, you'll never assume that you shouldn't worry. Never. I had a very very small baby, and then I walked straight to poverty and depression. Clinical depression is a terrible place because it is not sadness. Sadness is not a bad thing. You know, cry and feel, but it's that cold absence of feeling. It is even the absence of hope that you can feel better. That feeling really emptied, that's what the dementors are. Poverty implies fear and stress and sometimes depression. It means a thousand insignificant humiliations and hardships. Getting out of poverty by your own efforts is something to be proud of. But poverty itself is idealized only by fools. What I was most afraid of at your age was not poverty but failure. Ultimately, we all have to decide for ourselves what constitutes a failure, but the world is eager to give it a set of criteria if it allows it. So I think it's fair to say that, by any conventional measure, just 7 years after my graduation day, I had failed on an epic scale. An exceptionally ephemeral marriage had imploded, and I was unemployed, I was a lonely father and as poor as it was possible to be in modern Britain without being homeless. The fears that my parents had had for me, and that I had had for myself, had been fulfilled. And by all the usual standards, it was the biggest failure I knew. Then I had no idea how far the tunnel extended and for a long time any light at the end was a hope rather than a reality. So why do I talk about the benefits of failure? Simply because failure meant stripping the non-essential. I stopped pretending to myself that it was something different from what I was and began to direct all my energy, to finish the only job that mattered to me. If he had really succeeded in something else, he could never have found the determination to succeed in the only field where he believed he really belonged. I was released. Because my greatest fear had come true, and I was still alive, and still had a daughter I adored, and had an old typewriter, and a great idea. And so, the rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. You may never fail on the scale that I did, but some failures in life are inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing something, unless you have lived so cautiously, that you might not have lived at all, in which case, you have failed by default. Then, given a change of time, I would tell my 21-year-old self that personal happiness lies in knowing that life is not an acquisition or achievement checklist. Your qualifications, your CV, are not your life. Although you will meet many people my age and older who confuse the two. Life is difficult and complicated and is beyond anyone's total control. And the humility of knowing that will allow you to survive their vicissitudes. Unlike any other creature on this planet, human beings can learn and understand, without having experienced. They can think of other people's places. Written by the Greek author Plutarch, "what we achieve internally will change the external reality." That is a surprising statement and yet it has been proven a thousand times every day of our lives. It expresses in part our inescapable connection with the outside world. The fact that we touch other people's lives simply by existing. But how much more is it likely to touch other people's lives? We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need within ourselves. We have the power to imagine better. In the first Harry Potter book, Dumbledore tells Harry "the happiest man in the world would look in the mirror and look exactly as he is." Then I would have to say that I am quite close. As it is a story, so is life. It is not how long it is, but how good it is is what matters. I wish you all very good lives.

  1. For those that are broke, depressed, and feel there's nowhere to turn to, hold on. Your current situation isn't your destination.

  2. To all my Niggas in the ghetto living in poverty head up ! We gonna be fine and one day we will be successful

  3. Such gorgeous words from such an elegant human being. She is one of a few of my idols/ mentor. With all my love thank you. Rowling. My work I believe will be coming shortly and you were my hope when I wanted to give up.

  4. For those who have desires of commiting sucicide
    As for best advice i can give you
    Is to go at the top of the parking structure and jump from it
    Or go in the front of the train
    Or go jump off from the bridge of fresh water
    And
    Rip
    To your soul
    ๐Ÿ˜น

  5. The truth is that we all have to be humble. Whether rich or poor at the end we all go to the same place. Some are remembered others forgotten but the goal is to live and to have left a good footprint in someone's heart who will remember you for who you were.

  6. Magic is Demonic, this life is depressive because it's evil…

    This world means nothing but your eternity does…

    Hell is real and most people are headed there ๐Ÿ˜ž

    Please seek the Lord while he may be found…

    Only Jesus saves, yes Oprah only Jesus saves everything else will lead you to Hell for eternity….

  7. I been in a rough batch in my life. I've been homeless and down on my luck. Until a old friend reached out and took me off the streets and in a safe place. Thank to her and praying alot I'm okay now.

  8. No matter what has happened to you in the past or what is going on in your life right now, it has no power to keep you from having an amazingly good future if you will walk by faith in God. God loves you! He wants you to live with victory over sin so you can possess His promises for your life today

  9. like everyone else in the world I'm trying to write a book I remember when you were sleeping in the car with your little girl never gave up 77 years old living in Guadalajara by choice trying to write my memoirs as a women I'm at a stalemate to proof read what I have already writtenif your people read this can you make a suggestion that's all I am asking love your material

  10. In depression how can you write a book … then expect it to become so big … ๐Ÿค” luck or magic …

  11. Beautiful woman and this is what Neville Goddard talked of. Imagination does create reality ๐Ÿงก As within so without. The magic is within us to create anything we want ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

  12. I've experienced certain degrees of failure most of my life and recently, I've failed so many times in the last 8 months (Unable to find a job, financial issues, picking up driving licenses again) until I finally manage to find a job after being jobless for that whole duration. I've even been more demoralised having a driving license in my home country but I have failed 3 times in this current country I live in and have yet to have passed in this new country I am in now. It's draining me financially but at least now I have a job. But I will keep going even as these are testing times. God bless all of you who are suffering out there. Everything will be alright soon!
