How to find inspiration when short on time? TED!
When I am looking for inspiration but also would like to sit down and rest, I turn to TED talks for constructive, nurturing and informative me-time learning.
The good news is I feel TED talks are presented in a way that makes them both easy to follow but also life-changing. It digs it for me.
Since I was asked earlier today what do I do for inspiration, I have decided to share five of my favourite TED talks
- Talk 1- gives me hope, inspiration and hope of change all in one! It reminds me of how import it is to connect with each other and act as community, and how we can all work together to help each other.
- Talk 2 is about not getting what we want and why that is. This talk I can relate with a lot. I’m so into going for dreams and manifesting; yet for me why doesn’t it always work? Or worst take so long! I know surrender, patience and perhaps fate are involved. However, I have often felt there is a big gap between what I wish to achieve and what I get in reality. Gratitude, of course, goes a long way and I have plenty of that. So what is the missing magic ingredient? I don’t want to spoil it, so check out the talk!
3.Talk 3- inspires me to go for what I want and stop procrastinating. This talk I stumbled across by accident as I like to play something in the background when I am doing my housework. Peter’s talk had me captivated. So much so that my housework took twice the time! In one of the lines, he reminds us of how some of our ancestors gave their life so that we could be here today so we should make the most of our gifts. It also reminds me of the frailtiy of our existance.
4. One to remember about getting old and what a blessing it can be.Jane Fonda for me has been a great influence on my life since my early teenage years when I used to play my mother’s Jane Fonda fitness tapes. In hindsight Jane Fonda set me on my first steps into fitness. Regardless of this, Jane Fonda I feel is a deeply inspiring woman. Her ted talk blew me away. I want her attitude if I am lucky enough to ever reach her age.
I feel it is important not to view getting old as a bad thing but a chance to keep growing as a person.
Her deeply inspiring talk says it all. Love this woman! She rocks! Attitude goes along way in life. Since old age comes to us all, I think this talk is good for all ages!
