My husband was the person who first introduced me to TED Talks. I was instantly hooked to the amazing topics and incredible speaks that held my attention to the screen. They talked on subjects that hit me deeply and have changed the way I think.

I honestly feel that TED Talks are some of the best ways to educated people on how to better themselves or change their outlook on life and others.

And if you haven’t heard of them, TED Talks are nonprofit events devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short talks.

Down below I found some amazing talks that can help you in almost every area of your life. So whether you’re dealing with problems of motivation or confidence, these speakers will definitely give you food for thought.

The Power Of Believing That You Can Improve

Who says’s there’s no room for improvement? Motivational researcher, Carol Dweck, puts forward a case for the “not yet” approach to self-belief that provides room to grow and adapt. She makes the case specifically for children and their life choices, but the same can be applied to everyone, no matter their age.

If your body aches or hurts in some way, the first thing you’d do is take care of what’s causing the pain. But when you feel emotional pain or psychological-health issues, you might fail to treat it.
