VIDEO: The Failurist: Markus Zusak At TEDxSydney 2014

YouTube Channel: TEDx Talks

From the Description:

If you’re looking for inspiration, don’t turn to a writer — they thrive on misery. Writing a book is all about struggling with inadequate prose, false starts and discarded drafts.

Yet, in this surprising talk, author Markus Zusak explains how failure can often motivate us towards our greatest successes. Learning from our failed efforts and overcoming our insecurities is what makes us stronger and better, and gives success much greater meaning.

Despite his affinity with failure, Markus Zusak is the author of five books, including the international bestseller, The Book Thief, which has now been translated into more than 40 languages.
