I love TED talks and since I got the TED App from a friend last year, I have always preferred to spend my data on downloading TED Talks than any other kind of videos online.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
The world is ruled by ideas. When you are able to conceive an idea, you get a chance to rule your world. Every big movement in history started with an idea, so does every big or small achievements. Everyday, ideas pop in and out of our minds. What we do with them is what determines our place in history.
Your purpose is God’s idea rooted in the bigger idea of making the world look and operate like Heaven. The discovery of your purpose is actually a realization of an idea God has kept inside you since you were born and when you find purpose, you get the chance to leave a mark in the sands of time.
How you have evolved into the person fit for your life assignment is a story and it is awesome when you can share it. There are at least three reasons why you should deliberately learn to share your life message.
One, you grow as you share your message because as you share your message you are exposed to what other people think about your thoughts and in the process, you get better by virtue of the exchange of knowledge.
Two, you get to be able to genuinely reach out to the heart of people. You are an expert of your own story. No one can tell it better and more passionately. When you share your message, people can buy into you and the vision your ideas convey.
Three, you have a duty to share your message. Making the world a better place is a duty we all owe to humanity. Your life message puts you at a strategic advantage as you can share how you are making life better in the pursuit of your purpose and how the world can join you by finding their own spot in the overall plan.
Earlier this year, my team and I started an eBook project called Echoes of Discovery. We are compiling stories of how people found purpose. We want to raise a cloud of witnesses for folks still finding purpose. The idea is to have people share the stories of how they found purpose. We believe other people will be helped to understand theirs too.
I will love to hear your life message shared on the #EchoesofDiscovery Platform. To participate, simply send your story by mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No mater what, always remember that you are deeply significant!
