Peter Dinklage | This is Why Only 1% SUCCEED and What 99% Are Not DOING

One of the Most Inspiring Speeches I've ever heard. Watch this until the end. Incredible Motivational Speech from the Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage aka Tyrion Lannister.

Motivational Speech by Peter Dinklage.

Peter Dinklage initially struggled to find work as an actor, partially because he refused to take the roles typically offered to actors with his condition, such as "elves or leprechauns.'

He worked at a data processing company for SIX YEARS after being unable to pay rent with a failed business attempt starting a theater company.

As of 2018, he has won 11 awards from 58 nominations for his success as an actor. Don't give up on your dreams!

"Don't search for defining moments, they will never come." - Peter Dinklage

He never once mentioned that he had to suffer because of his physical appearance. We all know he must have had hard time with it. But such a positive man he is.

Too much dramatic editing. His speech alone was strong enough to stand on its own.

Why is it that so many of these speeches get re-edited with inspiring music in the background? It's as if their words aren't enough. It really takes away from the speech imo

Great speech, but the sappy song and clips get in the way.
For those wondering why this speech is edited so much. It isn't because of him at all. Bennington College Class of 2012 had no self control. Every 5 seconds the crowd goes woooooo. He couldn't finish a line without the crowd being extremely disruptive.

What does Peter's speech have to do with millennial hipsters hiking and riding in cabs? I liked the speech.

Inspiring man. The dude is so talented. Motivation... I hate that word, that idea. It means you become excited about something unpleasant you need to do. That usually doesn’t happen. Waiting for that... That’s called procrastination. It’s bullshit. Don’t think. Don’t feel. Just DO!!! Just get your work done. Comfort is a distraction.

I would prefer to just watch the performer speaking , with lowered music and no distracting film footage, I'm listening with ear buds and the up and down sounding music is making me lose the words he's speaking ...
I am not anyone who is famous. I don't have a job that i think people would swoon over but well here is my little story.

I tried to end my life a couple of times. Depression and those impulses overpowering me. I tried to do college because it was what was expected of me and got into debt as a result with nothing to show for it. I spent way to long accomplishing nothing and really getting nothing. I tried nothing so i gained nothing. Eventually through help i found a small part time job. 18 hours a week and it helped me not feel like as much of a leech, but it was still hard but i kept going with it even though the job wasn't great. I called people on the phone to do surveys. Hell I did it during the 2016 presidential election asking question on behalf of small and big media. I got a lot of hate and sometimes I had to stop. Nobody wanted to talk to me while I was working they all hated me and I hated myself enough I didn't want to have everyone hate me, but i stayed mostly so i wouldn't feel as worthless about myself because i knew if i quit i would quit everything again.

Eventually I took a small class for computer tech stuff. I was going to get A+ certified with the 800 series. I took the class and then started to take the tests, although i delayed a bit on it. I passed the first of two tests on the 2nd try and then the second test I took the last day it was allowed because the 800 series was retiring and being replaced with the 900. If i didn't pass now I would never pass the 800 series test. I took that test and I failed.

The place i took the class was a sort of charity aid for people with troubles in my case my depression and such got me in but they said it was a one time class and with the 900 series having stuff i never learned i was behind. I asked the teachers what i should do and me and a few others were allowed to take the test because we were so close and only ran out of time.

So I took that class, all while doing this survey job. I knew a lot but there was a lot i learned new and stuff i knew that wasn't needed anymore. But i finished it. I took the first test. the 901 and passed it on the first try. So when i took the second test feeling good I failed. I tried again and again and failed two more times. Now at this point the place only gave us freebies 4 times so while there was a discount I had to pay for any other attempts so I did basically nothing but study and work with a few minor things for relaxing because the doctors basically said I had to.

I took the test every chance i could within my budget and i kept failing. I failed probably eight or so times. I lost track. Eventually however I passed. I got certified and I now have a full time job. I have beneifits and will probably be out of debt around april and then getting my first apartment. My younger brother is married and looking for his first house though. I had a slow start but I finally am moving forward.

Not as flashy of a story as some but it is mine.

I got to meet Peter at an industry event- and yes, he is very nice. it is so reassuring that he is a good person
I love this man. It's easy to forget sometimes that the people who inspire you didn't just arrive that way. They had to learn and struggle and fail and get back up again and again and again...

Loved Peter Dinklage since the Station Agent. You know a great actor when they can convey emotion without much dialogue. I also loved Bobby Cannevale and how they played off each other.

The speech (full version is 28 mins long) is inspirational enough without the God-awful music.

" I drink and I know things " tyrion lannister
First we have to determine that getting on the inside in Hollywood is indeed success. From what I've seen most of them sold their sole, which I consider the ultimate failure, money or no (not say I,g he did). Id rather be blessed than self made.

I hate motivation videos.
Just, do something that you enjoy, explore it, get obsessed become good af. You don't have to kill yourself working 24/7. Just learn smart, practice smart. Wtf do you wanna do? What are the road blocks? List them and one by one break them. Rinse and repeat. Do it because you enjoy it. You will fail multiple times and be angry af. But keep going, obviously with a healthy sense of balance so you won't burnout and get depressed, self care is upmost important. No one matters. This is your life. Be selfish of course but always a balance. Most of all , wing it, everyone's doing the same. But keep going and making better strategies.

I still dislike motivation videos lol
Here let me put it in one phrase: The 99% just want the "success" but they are not willing to make the sacrifices!

Naturally a good speech maker. Remember his speech to Tywin Lannister?
Everyone that has had a rough start and who eventually makes it feels they have some inspirational words of wisdom for the rest of us. We never hear from the ones that never gave up but never made it anyways. The secret ingredient to success is not talent although having some does not hurt. The real ingredient is luck without which nothing happens no matter how much talent you have.
"Please don't ever stop, show it do it"! Every try, ever fail, no matter try again, fail again, fail better! The world is yours!
