Oh, how I love my TED talks. With countless topics and categories to explore, it’s easy to spend hours watching them. Here are a couple of TED talks that stayed with me and inspire me.
1. Isolation is the dream-killer, not your attitude – Barbara Sher
Such a fun talk to listen to, while so meaningful at the same time. While we are focused on developing and improving ourselves on our own, we forget that there may be others that can get us further than we can ever go alone.
2. My No Spend Year – Michelle McGagh
This talk made me more aware of how I spend my money and that fun doesn’t have to be expensive. The way Michelle McGagh executed her no spend year was extreme, but realistic. It’s not just about not spending your money, but also having the discipline to stick to it and being creative.
3. How to stop screwing yourself over – Mel Robbins
Mel Robbins is best know for her 5-second rule, which is the rule that when you don’t immediately act upon your goal and physically move towards that goal you won’t change. Such an inspiring story of how she went to the bottom and got up to rise higher than ever before.
4. Enter the cult of extreme productivity – Mark Adams
Procrastination is probably the number one reason why we don’t reach goals. In our heads we have the best ideas, but implementing them is one step too far. Mark Adams changed his life around in an inspiring way, showing it’s possible to reach for the top.
5. The power of introverts – Susan Cain
Being an introvert myself, there’s something so inspiring about hearing and reading about introverts. There is so much recognition when I reflect the characteristics, that I can’t recommend it enough to watch this, especially when you’re an introvert as well.
Many of these TED speakers have written a book or articles about the subject they are talking about, which makes TED a great resource to find new books to read as well.
Here are some more TED book suggestions to check out:
