The movie Rocky IV turned Dolph Lundgren aka Soviet boxer Ivan Drago into a Hollywood star. Exactly 30 years later the Fulbrighter Dolph Lundgren shares his personal fight worth fighting with a live audience at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. “If you heal yourself you can heal others” is the message of this surprising TEDxFulbright talk about a fighter who became a social activist.
Best known for his performance in Rocky IV as Ivan Drago, Dolph has starred in over 50 films. He was awarded a Fulbright to MIT after graduating at the head of his class in chemical engineering at the Royal Inst. of Technology in Stockholm. He also completed an exchange program with the University of Sydney.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
We don't usually know famous people, we only think we do. All the info about them are mostly gossip & straight up lies made up by tabloids for money. But in reality many of them had a hard childhood and that's what pushed them towards success - famous actors, artists, athletes etc. In the end, we are all human beings with complex stories. At the age of 30, I'm just starting to live, after years of vegetation and suffering from bipolar depression. So glad I clicked on this video. Dolph Lundgren is very articulate, intelligent, charming, with a great sense of humor, he is very good storyteller and I absolutely adore his voice - so soothing ! Remember that it is never too late to bounce back and change your life, as Dolph said. Love & all the best, for all of You, from Poland <3
Fight, flight and freeze! How true that life throws interesting curve balls at us and it is our early years that seem to set up a path of bliss or destruction via exposure, environment and abuse.. Thank you Dolph Lundgren and Ted X for sharing
All true, humanity is slowly waking up to what makes us human, our feelings. Dolph contribute is much appreciated, hopefully more will come forward, those roles models are people with much greater chance to be heard and should use that power. I was not a fan before but I am a fan now, for the right reason.
Thank you Dolph! I have been trying to convey this same message in my own videos over the past couple of months, but you have done so much better in your explanation! I have reached this level of Ascension quite some time ago and it doesn't end there. Keep on making the Awesome videos! Your Friend, Doug Chandler
The Earth is dying and so are we so let's begin to heal everything with love God bless you Dolf this is the true meaning of life
love nothing more nothing less The Tide is changing we are all brothers and sisters we're only separated if we believe we are and even then we are not.
When we can remember to treat each other like brothers and sisters again we can remember our responsibility to each other again and more hatred and horribleness can be a thing of the past and love can be the thing of the future
Life is only ever what you believe it to be and I believe the tide is changing and even if we don't make it on this Earth at least we can leave evidence of having at least tried and on the way out have the happy lives we all dream of and the Utopia we hope we can create without robots or iPhones just us and the food we grow and the people we love.
Really pleased to have stumbled on this, have always liked him anyway but this has elevated my thoughts about him, well done him for sharing, well done Ted for supplying the platform for him to share, 100% inspirational. LOVE this
So, what happens if you go too far and you fall in love with yourself? Then, all you want to do is talk about yourself, become completely self-consumed, want to be the center of attention, and take “Selfies” all the time? “Look at me!” “Look what I can do!” Oh,....then you can fit right in and be an average/typical self-centered spoiled “American”. Is there an “American’s” Anonymous help group available yet? We can certainly use it.
After the first couple of minutes of this video I pressed pause. I went to my 5-year-old little boy, gave him a big hug and a couple of kisses on his head. And I'm afraid I got a cold.
I'm so sorry for that little Swedish kid.
The journey Dolph is on is great, he has been given a perspective that compels him to attempt to help other. I can only pray that Jesus is in his life and if not soon will be. For those who read this who are Christians Please send a pray towards Dolph. All praise and glory is to God our Father and our Kinsmen redeemer and lord and King Christ Jesus.
Most people have no idea how smart Lundgren is, which is understandable if you've just seen him in movies :P He was a great student at a esteemed Swedish university, and if not for the Rockymovies, he would most likely be a doctor (phd) in one of the sciences.
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.
