Lately, I’ve been listening to TED talks and they’re so motivational and educational at the same time. I love it. I like that they’re short because let’s face it, we don’t always have the time or patience to listen to long talks, so these are perfect.
I’ve gathered my 5 favorites in a random order that I want to share with you guys.
1. CELESTE HEADLEE – 10 WAYS TO HAVE A BETTER CONVERSATION
This is such an amazing talk. I love how she easily and short tells us how to have a decent conversation with people, and there’s a lot to learn from it. I found myself thinking about how I talk and engage with other people. And a lot of the points that she made, our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wa Salaam thought us: Be present, give full attention to whoever speaks to you, and listen. Such a motivational speech.
2. SCOTT GELLER – THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SELF-MOTIVATION
This one really makes you think what self-motivation actually is. How much we need each other and learn from each other. Take a look and listen.
3. SUZANNE BARAKAT – ISLAMOPHOBIA KILLED MY BROTHER. LET’S END THE HATE.
This is the sister and sister-in-law of the three young Muslims who lost their lives to a hate crime by their neighbor. Such a powerful speech and oh wow so many feelings at the same time… This is both sad and an eye-opener.
4. CARRIE GREEN – PROGRAMMING YOUR MIND FOR SUCCESS
This speech is making you understand how your decision in your mind affects you, both negatively and positively. God gave us a brain to have control over, so how do we use it?
5. AMAL KASSIR – THE MUSLIM ON THE AIRPLANE
Wow, such an amazing speech! I found my self in tears while listening to her. This is worth listening to.
I hope you liked this post and I would love to read some of your thoughts or other recommendations that you may have.
