I didn’t finish any of my own music for 4 years, I didn’t finish any of my own apps for over 5 years… it’s so easy to think that life should go smooth when trying to do extraordinary things. Failure and adversity are permanent in the face of meaning and life. Thank you for this speech Peter, rolled a tear or two during this. Really needed this one!

Eire says: May 25, 2019 at 2:47 pm Was Dinklage not in that U2 song 'all I want is you' ? That would be 1989 Reply siggimund says: May 26, 2019 at 10:02 pm I'm out of words Mr. Dinklage – great speech! . I'm so impressed from your actor performance in the whole of GOT. That was more than Oscar worthy! Reply DavidtheWavid says: May 27, 2019 at 5:58 pm “The moments that define you have already happened. And they will already have happened again.” Recent graduate here. I needed to hear this. Reply Asad Sardar says: May 31, 2019 at 10:54 am He is the perfect example of " size doesnt matter ". Reply Parimal Bakrola says: June 1, 2019 at 9:26 am I got goosebumps towards the end. I love how he made all the sad part sound funny but it must have been hard. Reply Ben W says: June 1, 2019 at 7:18 pm This is good advice for anyone struggling to fulfill their dreams. Another video referred to this one, so I was lucky to find it again. I'd seen this a year or two ago, and it is just as awesome on a second viewing. Peter Dinklage rocks. — My path in life is nothing much like I'd imagined it would be when I was a skinny freshman entering college for the first time. Life can throw things at you that you never expected, good and bad. You can make mistakes, good and bad, and try to do better. Life is very seldom easy or lucky. But you still need to work towards your dreams. You'll be happier that way, even if it isn't turning out the way you thought, or at least not yet. Along the way, life happens anyway. Friends come and go. You have to keep at it and pick yourself up many times, and find what works for you, and move ahead, onward, upward. I am still getting the hang of this thing called life. For most of us, it's still a struggle, but it's ours. There is a trick called attitude and turning things around, which I am still learning too. Best wishes to any graduates. Real life in the real world is not what you think it is as a new graduate. Figure it out and keep improving, and be good to others, even when they are not, if for no other reason than to confuse the heck out of the ones who are not nice or who actively want to make life worse for others in order to gain for themselves.
