  1. I ran into +Scott Dinsmore from reading something on +Michael Hyatt’s blog.

    The video is 17 minutes. But well worth the listening too.

    *Take Aways*

    -Become an expert in yourself; find out what you are good at

    -Do the impossible; push beyond your limits for you to grow
    –most importance thing is your physical health

    -Write down the things that inspire you about others

    -Surround yourself with passionate people

    -You are the average of the 5 people you surround your self with

    -You don’t need to change your goals; you just need to change your
    environment

    -Everything is impossible until you achieve it

    -Be intentional….

  2. Yeah, I’d love to hear detailed info on how these people who quit their
    jobs fed their families. I’m all for living your life with meaning, I just
    think we’re not asking some of the most important questions to pull this
    off.

    What do you think of that quote “You’re the average of the 5 people you
    spend the most time with”?

  3. Whoa. This is the best TED talk I’ve seen in a long time, and I found it
    accidentally. Please, watch this.

    (There is a TEDxGoldenGatePark???)

  4. *This TedTalk Can Also Be Applied To Entrepreneurship And Business!*

    Finding the work you love so you can help change the world and inspire
    others to do the same!

  5. I found this very inspiring. It’s about finding your passion and making it
    your career. I hope it inspires you too

  6. Passionate, inspiring presentation.

    A summary:

    1. Become an expert about these aspects of yourself:

    Unique strengths
    Values (what you care most about)
    Experiences (that reveal what you want & don’t want to do)

    …and by doing so, you are essentially defining what #success means to you.

    2. Experience activities that stretch your self-limits, because truly you
    are far more capable than you can imagine.

    3. Manage your influences: choose carefully whom you hang around. Be
    around people (and read / watch their content) who are living / doing what
    you would love to be / do.

  7. Loved this! Scott’s passion and enthusiasm is so inspiring. I can totally
    relate to his story about the advice he heard about building his resume.
    When I was 20, many moons ago, I heard the same ridiculous nonsense. It’s
    worth spending 17+ minutes to watch…you won’t regret it!! Thanks.

  8. Great Ted talk, maybe one of the best I’ve seen so far. I would like to
    thank the presenter for this, I’m someone who is struggling to find a
    career path to go down, and this really helped. Thank you! A lot of great
    things to take from this.

  9. So if you imagine, Scott, a future world where 80% or more of the people
    enjoy the work they do, who is going to do the more than 80% of the work in
    the world (factory jobs, fast food industry,,ditch-diggers, miners,
    farm-workers, dishwashers, store clerks etc.) that is by nature boring,
    uninspiring, monotonous, and sometimes down-right exploitative!!??

  10. This man is making so much sense and what he is saying is speaking to me.
    I am right now studying in South Dakota for “mining engineering”. I am
    from fucking NJ and the only reason I am here is so that I can have a damn
    job..? I am cynically depressed and I feel that I am stuck in my position
    because of the pressure from my father. FUCK this. I hate it and it is so
    unnecessary. I am seriously moving back to NJ this next fall for school
    whether he likes it or not. I took out all my funds in loans anyway so he
    didnt even pay for shit! Why do I feel that I have to stay in my
    position. I mean I am 19 years old, I should be waking up every morning
    and have the feeling of utter emptyness. Every day i contemplate leaving.
    I cant focus on my studies here and I have to man up and tell my father to
    suck a donkey dick.

  11. If i could rewind the years I would do what I had to do for work, not what
    I wanted to do. I have failed over and over again because I never took the
    safe route and getting a degree and job in demand

  12. Experiments with both adults and children consistently show that when they
    are excited by an activity – they are much more efficient at it than when
    they are being rewarded for performing the same activity, regardless of how
    high the reward is. We can enormously benefit our economy and living
    standards by putting this observation into practice through more research
    into determining ideal occupation preferences for given individual and more
    consistent tailoring of our education systems to market trends.

  13. Ever wonder why you are doing what you are doing? This is a great
    presentation from Scott Dinsmore about finding your passion in work and
    life.
