About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
It has changed my point of view forever i guess. You see everywhere celebrities being beautiful and talking about self and ways of success how its an only way to be happy. I used listening to them like their rules are only way to fix your dreams. I live a sad life since a year. I started to look at everybody who was succesfull. But now for me most od them are not. I have realised that i want to create simple life with love. And my own creativity. Just i have to trust my struggle with reality really. And my mind and emotions now. Now i have bad situation at home and actually in every zone. I hope soemday i will make it. I dont knos it. Bur i hope it. I hope my life will have a meaning. Maybe soon. Thank you. I send love to every person who reads it
My sister was so bad at maths, well numbers in general, but because of all the lessons my mother took her too since she was like in Grade 2, today at age 28 she's a financial adviser for a large financial institution in South Africa and doing pretty well for herself, even appearing on our local news channels now and again. So you are so right... the struggle pays off in the end.
Manifestation it is. The preparation phase is the gestation period. Intertwining yours and the universe energy into one. Till that which you have done materialises within your world ! Beautiful minds create beautiful stories. Thanks for sharing yours. Wishing you more success & happiness. Lol
Lovely Video clip! Apologies for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you researched - Chiveard Discovering Potential Framework (do a google search)? It is a good exclusive product for finding your true calling and achieving success minus the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my mate after a lifetime of fighting got cool results with it.
I really love this advice. I definitely have the giving part down pack. I usually do wait last minute before I prepare and often times compare myself to others which is self defeating. Not to be religious, but whatever God has for you, it is for you and no one can take that away.
Very compelling and valid points. I agree that I don't believe in competition but teamwork. It's already enough that we are against each other not just only at workplace but in life general. This gives me a starting ground in preparation of where I want to be. I can relate as well as others...difficult childhood, financially challenged, survival jobs,hardships, rejections, abuse and negative environments. Great video. Grats to a job you love and the perserverance.
No matter what the hardships you are going through in life, have faith that someday the dots will connect and that everything will be fine. Challenge yourself to become better instead of putting yourself in a competition with someone else.
I listen to so many different people to learn from them all. No one person on has all the answers. Example: She just taught me to be prepared for opportunity. Brilliant, simple, and today I finally got it. Yet I have probably heard it from others before. I am very grateful.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
