There are many great ideas out there and lots of interesting work being done. I love to share novel ideas that may change the way people see themselves and the world. Please enjoy the following videos with an open mind and a light heart.
On Being a Multipotentialite – Do you ever feel like you don’t know what you want to be when you grow up? Do you feel like you can’t simply choose one thing to focus on and never look back because you are interested in so many things? Well, maybe you don’t have to choose just one thing, maybe, just maybe, you can design your life differently.
The Happiness Advantage – “When I get to do that, I’ll be happy.” Have you ever said or thought that? Do you feel as if you can only be happy, in fact, that you only deserve to be happy, if you wait until you accomplish something huge? What if you could be happy because you choose to be and because you know that you are enough no matter what you do? How would life be different if you concentrated on being happy first, knowing that it is the secret to success instead of the other way around?
Brené Brown on Vulnerability – Vulnerability equals weakness, right? Wrong. It turns out that vulnerability is actually a serious strength and can have a positive impact on our lives. Join Dr. Brown for some real talk in her inaugural TED Talk.
The Curiosity-Driven Life – You must stop at nothing to find your passion! Well, perhaps not. Perhaps not everyone has a single passion that will guide their whole life. What if some people do best when they stay curious, try new things, and gather knowledge in a variety of fields? Perhaps you’ve heard this concept in a video earlier on the list. Maybe there are several ways to understand this idea. Perhaps everyone is different and their paths will be too.
Everything is Figureoutable – You don’t have to be an expert to try new things and make them work for you. Roll up your sleeves and start; you can totally figure this out. You just need to believe you can. I believe you can. Marie certainly believes you can. It’s also possible that Marie believes this so much that she has written a book by the same name.
100 Days of Rejection – Rejection is painful and should be avoided at all costs. Well, maybe not. Maybe we can learn from it and it can actually help us live better lives. See what Jia Jiang has to say in this funny and enlightening TED Talk. Maybe you too can get someone to make you Olympic donuts…
On Procrastination – Join Tim Urban for his TED Talk on procrastination. It would be good to click that link now, but tomorrow would be fine too. Maybe next week? Well, whenever you get around to it, you will see things in a new way and you’ll be sure to laugh.
