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)
I wish I had parents who would encourage me. Even if her mother was really strict, at least she didn't tell her she was irresponsible all the time. My mother doesn't believe in me. Not that I want her to, but I would wish to have a parent who would encourage me and build my self esteem at least a little.
Kaepora Gaebora I know how you feel my mom never encourages me more like say negative things to prevent me from doing good . I stopped listening to her and decided to just do me and do what I want in my life . People won’t believe in you so you have to believe in yourself ❤️❤️ you got this
Repetition, trusting in yourself and your struggles, and believing in yourself and your capabilities. If you stay ready for whats to come, you will never have to be ready for whats to come. Great talk. Learned a lot from Ms. Asher.
The MOST inspiring, straight to heart TEDx talk I’ve watched so far!!!
Hits exactly on the spot, thank you!
Your words in which you gave are more of a motive than anything I heard in the last 5 months!
8:10 compétitive Spirit brings out fears and insecurities who ca. Bring you back , we create what we want instead of competitions with what have already been done ! this is what works and most importantly matter ! Very great talk .
Why does the world seem to orbit around success?? And why is success linked to a job? People shouldn't have jobs. They should have love in their hearts. If you can love yourself after years of being bullied in school. If you can love your mother after years of abuse. If you can love your partner after countless arguements. If you can love life through all obstacles. This is you succeeding.
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.
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.
