Happy Monday morning!
So one of my favourite things to do is binge watch TED talks (don’t judge me) because there are so many good ones that can really get you to start thinking differently. Since it’s Monday and we all need a little motivation boost I have selected one of my all time favourite Ted talks by Mel Robbins called: “How To Stop Screwing Yourself Over”, Harsh title… right?
Ok, let’s have a moment of truth about TED talks before I go any further. The thing is that a lot of the TED talks videos you watch are well… exaggerated and a bit over the top with the theatrics of their presentation. For this reason, many people have critiqued TED talks as being fake or just there for the speakers to promote and push their own agenda. Here is my two cents on that critique; as long as we can weave through the theatrics there is still a message there to benefit from.
In the same breath when you weave through the theatrics of Mel Robbin’s TED talk video there is a clear and useful message to take away; Don’t sit around and wait till you feel like it because guess what? You are never going to “Feel like it”.
It’s very very simple to get what you want BUT it’s not easy. You have to force yourself to do it and a lot of force is required!
Let me know what you guys think of the video OR TED Talks in general 🙂
