The Stanford alum finished off the caption with tree emojis and the hashtag #FearTheTree, referencing the school's mascot. 

Witherspoon, who apart from her Oscar-winning acting career has forged a successful name for herself as a businesswoman and entrepreneur, gave a talk at Stanford for its View From The Top speaker series.

Stanford Graduate School of Business also shared a snap via Instagram, along with a snippet of her talk.

"During her View From The Top talk yesterday, @ReeseWitherspoon advised us to seek out new challenges -- especially those that terrify us. 'You’re the one responsible for your own path, so throw yourself at it,'" they wrote.
