10 of 40 Day 11

I start my 10 days of Mind with three of my favorite TED talks.  If you haven't been exposed to TED Talks I am hopeful that you will begin your journey now. A group of people from T(Technology) E(Entertainment) & D(Design) started what is now known as TED talks at a conference in 1984 where these areas converged.  The talks welcome people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. As said in their mission statement "We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world."

I am particularly fond of three talks in no specific order 

Jill Bolte Taylor  A Stroke of Insight https://www.ted.com/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight

Shawn Achor  The Happy Secret to Better Work https://www.ted.com/talks/shawn_achor_the_happy_secret_to_better_work

Brene Brown  The Power of Vulnerability https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability

Each of these "teachers" show us the vast complexity and opportunities our minds provide for us and the world around us. Jill Bolte Taylor shows us that we are capable of oneness and peace, Shawn Achor gives us guidelines to finding happiness and Brene Brown opens up and shares the idea that being vulnerable can release us to an entirely new life. 

Allowing our minds to flourish and expand with new concepts and ideas can be exciting and energizing. Cry with Jill Bolte Taylor, laugh with Shawn Achor and find joy and authenticity with Brene Brown.  I hope you watch them and open up to the possibilities.

Wishing you Grace, Peace & Healthy Living,
