Some talks to remember

If you haven't heard of Ted talks, you have been missing a lot! They are described as 'riveting talks by remarkable people' free to the world. I have enjoyed a lot of these amazing talks, the most recent one I watched being this amazing talk by David Blaine on how he held his breath for seventeen minutes under water.

Ted X are created in the spirit of Ted's mission and they are independently organised Ted event. They happen all over the world.You can find a Ted X event near you, and attend it. You could use this link to know more.

I have been invited as a Ted X speaker for an event happening on 9th June. All details  are here:

The talk I will be giving is called '5 lessons for growth or in other words, 5 important lessons life has taught me'.  I would be sharing 5 important rules one needs to follow if one has to grow. I would be peppering it with all that I have learnt in my life's journey --right from school, to where I am today, how I grew, the mistakes I made, the failures I faced, the defeats I had to accept and the sacrifices I had to make to reach where I am today. It would be a honest, straight from the heart talk.
Once the event is over, the talk would be freely available on the Internet. I am indeed looking forward to this as much as I am looking forward to hear what the other speakers have to say and share.

I think there is a LOT one can learn from talks like these. A talk which particularly impressed me was a recent one by Neil Gaiman.

If you haven't yet seen it, stop what you are doing right now and watch this:
