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)
Thanks a lot for this video it was a pleasure to me watching it . Makes me feel so motivated , powerful and without limits . I have so much ideas and plans but sometimes I go down because of my thoughts that creep me out and make me fell confused but also I have times when I feel so enthusiastic , creative , full of life and that I can do everything that I want to do , I fell in this way when I am doing what I love to do and this motivates me to keep going on my way . Thanks again I will try somethings from the video;)))
Ah, programming the mind for success under which scale? Why? What for?
It's nice that you came to the realization of your own freedom, scary as it may be. There might be deep questions that do have to be paid attention to in order to think better about one's actions, and it involves a lot of effort and learning to get that perspective. And well, this includes one's definition of success.
Freedom ain't easy.
First three parts are relatively easy for me to get, and can be answered pretty quickly and clearly:
1. What do I want to achieve?
Put simply: To create video games, and then movies and animations and comics and toys, etc. too.
2. Why do I want to achieve it?
Put simply: Because video games are the things closest to my heart in the entire world. And I love all forms of entertainment too and have this great passion for creating things that other people can enjoy similarly.
3. What kind of person do I need to become in order to make it happen?
Not quite as simple: Someone who's actually willing to put in the time and effort required to learn how to make games and then actually make games, and a person who can encourage and get other people who are similarly passionate to work on my games too, so I don't have to do it all alone.
Forth part a little harder to nail down and figure out the best way to do this:
4. Program your mind to make it happen.
Not really simple at all: Tried a whole load of stuff, and in moments in my live I have moved towards my goals pretty well, but I've always fallen back and never quite gotten to where I truly want to be. And I've never got rid of those doubts and demons that keep holding me back and making me give up more quickly than I should and so on.
I've had the first two nailed since I was a teen. I've understood the third part mostly for a long time too, and I certainly intellectually understand it, even if I'm not fully living it day to day. But that forth part is the bit that has largely eluded me for most of my life.
Guess I'll keep trying with the mediation and affirmations and audio tapes and so on though, and see how it goes. . . .
Great example right at the start, but you maybe should have given him like a hundred pounds, or possibly even a thousand, to really hammer the point home. I think then people's inner voices would have really stopped talking and paid attention, even more so than I'm sure they already did to your well thought out talk.
Great speech, logical and clear, very convincing using an example from her past. She has the ability to describe something that is rather abstract to a powerful point. I'm going to re-watch this for the rest of my life hahaha
Well she is indeed an excellent speaker! But if I summarise this video it'd be smth like this:
- She started a business cause she needed money
- Her business went well for a year or two and she didn't feel satisfied
- After a long time, she finally started Female Entrepreneur Association to inspire women with her no real good experience in business for whatever reason.
The problems with motivating speakers nowadays are too young, they are not experienced enough, they just want to do something whether it ACTUALLY helps people or not. They don't really care about other people, in fact they wanna appear as if they made it themselves!
it seems to be the lady had money from the beginning... and born at the right place, not underdeveloped country, so success is not an accident? it helps to have some luck from the beginning.. is that right? and only the last 4 minutes to say how to be successful...
the problem isn't bcos of us its definitely bcos of the way the education system works. we're expected to know what we want to be in our teenage years without having no experience whatsoever! how the f are we supposed to know?
This experiment demonstrates the power of your mind. The fact that what's going on upon your head has such a huge impact on the actions that you take, on the decision you make, and the things that you experience. And it's not just in silly situations like this when people miss out an amazing opportunities. People are missing out incredible opportunities all of the time.
Really interesting & inspiring, thank you for sharing. I found using positive affirmations on a daily basis has transformed my life. Always be your own best friend and make sure you are telling yourself supportive and positive things. If not, change the channel!
i never understand how people with university degree are so so full of doubt i really think those people are lazy because if i had that degree i would have been sooo happy
you own the language skills you need. thats ONE important thing , make work of it. I really want to write those blogs and make video´s and go out there but people wont take me serious and i forget important words to express what i want to express
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.
