Four Awesome TED Talks That Will Inspire You

Thursday, January 24, 2019

What inspires you? What do you do when you are not feeling motivated? I love to read and listen to podcasts, but when I need to feel inspired and motivated  I turn to Ted Talks.
There four talks (which I have watched multiple times) always leave me inspired to take on the day.

Author Isabel Allende is 71. Yes, she has a few wrinkles—but she has incredible perspective too. In this candid talk, meant for viewers of all ages, she talks about her fears as she gets older and shares how she plans to keep on living passionately.

Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership -- starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?"

We believe we should work hard in order to be happy, but could we be thinking about things backwards? In this fast-moving and very funny talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that, actually, happiness inspires us to be more productive.

Dan Gilbert, author of "Stumbling on Happiness," challenges the idea that we'll be miserable if we don't get what we want. Our "psychological immune system" lets us feel truly happy even when things don't go as planned.
