As I’m sure many of you have, I’ve been watching Ted Talks (on Technology, Entertainment, and Design) for years and have been fascinated by many of the moving speakers. Needless to say, giving my own first Ted Talk was a little intimidating and definitely brought out my fight-or-flight response. It’s a good thing I meditate (to see why you should too, read this )! I have spoken in front of over 1,000 people before – but never without slides or notes – at least some prompt or outline. For this, I had nothing – just me and my adrenaline-flooded brain. Making it even more exciting and scary was the fact that it was in front of my very own community of Manhattan Beach – with an audience full of friends and family.
I hope I was able to communicate effectively how passionately I feel about every single person’s ability to make powerful, impactful change if they focus on what is important to them. While preparing for this talk, I came across stunning statistics (like these) about the power of purpose in fostering healthy behavior change and how much that can make a difference in how long you live. It’s evidence like this that inspired me to provide people with the practical, research-driven tools to go beyond their annual physical and finally turn their lifelong health goals into a reality. So, if you want to add 7 more years to your life, listen to this talk.
