TED: Ideas Worth Spreading
TED: Ideas Worth Spreadinghttps://www.ted.com/
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

CONVERSATIONS

  1. If we are used to “throwing us down”, if we follow “inner voices” that diminish us, we will tend to be resigned and disheartened. We will see life with pessimism, and we will also approach possible relationships with fear, instead of trust.
    Above all, we will tend not to question our limits, to believe that they define us, and that we cannot escape them: but it is not so.
    Power and responsibility are closely linked: if I have no responsibility for a situation, I don’t even have the power to change it. Unfortunately, often we don’t realize this connection; nor of the fact that by refusing responsibility for our condition, we automatically put ourselves in a position of impotence. Thus, denying one’s responsibility inevitably puts us in a position of powerless passivity.
    What matters is having qualities to offer: the more qualities we have, the more results we will get. So if we want better results, we must devote ourselves to increasing our qualities.
    Life is continual change, and we ourselves continually change: therefore improvement is always possible.
    But we must be careful: improving does not mean “becoming another”, but becoming a better version of ourselves. In other words, improving means becoming what we are meant to be, expressing our full potential and don’t let us go, as many people who live only a small part of their potential.
