I appreciated his idea of "failing forward." When experiencing "failure", I feel that often times I will get bogged down in the failure and really struggle with it. His idea of "failing forward" suggests that instead of letting the failure get me down, I should evaluate what I did in general, what I did wrong, and how I could make it better--just as he did after his $40 million mistake. In doing so, I would be allowing myself to experience failure from a completely different perspective--one where I'm almost guaranteed to benefit from. From this view, one could say that there is success in every failure.
Furthermore, I liked his father's definition of courage: the willingness to lean into the things that scare you most. As we all know, it takes a lot of self-motivation to do things that scare us but after we've gotten through them, we feel proud. I feel that the idea of doing what scares you is a really important one--though I will only be applying this to my education and professional careers because I have no interest in jumping out of a plane or going to a haunted house. After this, he mentioned being a champion for those who need a voice; this idea is very important to me, as I feel everyone should have a voice or at least have someone to stand up for them when times get rough. I know what it's like to be persecuted for small things, I know what it does to your mentality so I feel everyone should adopt the mentality of standing up for people who haven't quite found their voice yet.
