Novak:
How much is gratitude a part of your life?
McIlroy:
It’s huge. I think everyone has to be thankful for what they have. I think to receive something, you first have to be thankful for it and I’ve been very thankful for everything that’s happened to me in my life. I’ve got a deep gratitude to my parents and what they’ve done for me. I’m thankful every day I can get up in the morning and do what I do and spend time with very special people and learn from these people.

Novak:
Any advice for up and coming leaders?
McIlroy:
Never be afraid to ask for advice, too proud or stubborn to take advice from people. Everyone is trying to help in some way. Lead by example, the way you want to be led. Be engaging and inspiring. Try to help others. Be selfless; if you help others, it will help you along the way as well. Keep a great perspective on things.
(32:36-33:43)
