Ok so if you have been around the blog for a while then you know that I am a huge fan of podcasts, reading, and basically any form of digestible personal development content. BUT!! Having said that there is one form of content that I have yet to get on the train of, and that is TED Talks. I honestly don’t know why, but for some reason I have just never really taken the time to deep dive into them, which is a shame because there truly is a TED Talk for everyone. So to fill the void, I have started binging TED Talks, which I may or may not be a good thing but I am a content junkie. But as I have been absorbing and learning more and more through these talks, I have definitely developed a few favorites, and those are what I want to talk to you about today.
The Power Of Vulnerability – Brene Brown
Whew! Y’all may not know but Brene Brown is like my new go to personal development guru, even though I hate that word. I legitimately haven’t read or listening to anything of her’s that isn’t pure mind altering brilliance, and that is saying something. This TED Talk is just that! She breaks down the importance of being vulnerable, which for someone like me is hard, and how it is truly what creates and breaks everything.
Programming Your Mind For Success – Carrie Green
This TED Talk is a shorter one, but that doesn’t make it any less powerful. If you need someone to remind you that ideas come out of the weirdest places, and that sometimes the best business idea is the one that comes to you when you least expect it. I am a huge Carrie Green fan, and highly recommend her book She Means Business if you haven’t already read it.
How To Stop Screwing Yourself Over – Mel Robbins
Oh Mel Robbins! Is this woman one smart cookie or what. I swear this TED Talk is like an audiovisual kick in the butt, that we all so desperately need. She really stresses the importance of actually living your life, and stopping the “I’m fine” cycle that so much of society seems to be living in because after all your life is a miracle, and you deserve to live it.
Ok so suffice it to say I have joined the TED Talk bandwagon, I know I know it is about time, but I genuinely cannot say enough good things about the three above TED Talks. These talks are all truly life changing, and serve as a great reminder that we have this one life to live, and we sure as hell better start living it.
