    This morning I read a post by one of the members on this forum suffering from a "burn out" and I came across this phenomenal TED Talk that truly provides you with motivation to have a more positive attitude towards your work and reaching your goals.

    The talk is really refreshing and it works on the basis of improving some of the minor ways we deal with success and how that contributes to our happiness and self satisfaction.



    I hope you guys find this video inspiring because I sure did.

    You all rock and best of luck IMing!! :)

    I just listened this while playing darts. Relaxing.


    I loved it. I can actually say that I knew some things that he said in there, but he definitely cracked the code, even if it's somewhat a combo of uniqueness and rehash, but that sounds too harsh to say rehash.


    Here's the top comment of this video, on YouTube. It actually explains and sums it up pretty well:

    Great stuff, I've worked with an NLP coach and its amazing what a positive outlook on life will do for you. The Law of Attraction is no joke, the more you feel like something is going to go wrong, the more likely something will go wrong. But keep thinking of success and happiness, and it will find you!

    Video didn't play all the way through for some reason but I agree positive thinking is beyond helpful but hard to practice sometimes

    He who laughs last, laughs longest.
    He sure has some excellent communication skills and could probably out talk most people he encounters on a daily basis whether he's right or wrong.

    I'm glad you guys found it helpful. I took a screenshot of the 21 day process he spoke about to positively rewire your brain and I attached it here for any of you that would like to go through with it.

    You have to do this procedure once a day for 21 days. Enjoy :)

    Great presentation. Humor and education go together like peanut butter and jelly. This guy doesn't lecture. He spits like a highly educated NLP rapper.
