Students from Harrow College have attended a motivational talk given by renowned public speaker Jackson Ogunyemi, better known as Action Jackson.
Jackson held talks at the college’s Harrow on the Hill campus on Monday 12 March 2018. In front of packed audiences, Jackson spoke about the importance of dreaming big, acting now and never giving up. He encouraged students to work hard, form good habits and to limit activities which could be holding you back.
Clearly separating social time from class time, reducing the use of social media on smart phones for entertainment purposes and learning from past experiences were some of the key messages. Jackson spoke about his own experiences and engaged with the students a number of times in group activities to demonstrate the power of the mind in completing tasks which initially seemed un-achievable. One example included the students recalling 30 random items in order after many initially claimed to only be able to recall no more half that total.
Action Jackson founded Fix Up Seminars in 2001, which delivers workshops focused on motivating students, teachers and parents. When asked about a key message that students should take away from the day, Jackson said:
“Don’t be afraid to fail because failure is part of success. And if you do fail, learn from the experience and try again”.
