Dr. Randy Pausch

Have you heard of this man named Randy Pausch? No? Yeah, neither did I till last night when I was searching for some interesting lectures on Youtube. I came across this video - Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams. This lecture is also called the Last Lecture. He delivered his 'Last Lecture' on the 18th of September 2007 in Carnegie Mellon University. He offered a lot of things in this lecture and one of them is inspirational life lessons.
This is the 'Last Lecture'. Have a look.

Aight, these are some of Randy Pausch's quotes:
When you see yourself doing something badly and nobody’s bothering to tell you anymore, that’s a very bad place to be. Your critics are your ones telling you they still love you and care.

Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.

The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

You can’t get there alone. People have to help you and I do believe in karma. I believe in paybacks. You get people to help you by telling the truth. Being earnest.

Apologise when you screw up and focus on other people, not on yourself.

Don’t complain. Just work harder.

It’s not about how to achieve your dreams. It’s about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you.

Dr. Randy Pausch was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on the 16th of September 2006. Pausch died from pancreatic cancer at his family's home in Chesapeake, Virginia on July 25, 2008 at the age of 47. He is survived by his wife, Jai, and their three children, Dylan, Logan, and Chloe.
