The 3 A’s of Awesome
A TED Talk by Neil Pasricha 17:33 minutes
The 3 A’s of Awesome is probably my favorite TED Talk! I figured it would make a perfect first blog post. Neil Pasricha has a great sense of humor and is so genuinely moved by life that I felt an instant connection the first time I watched it. He made me feel so much and made me laugh out loud which is always a bonus. Plus, his speech made me feel hopeful for a better tomorrow. I’ve watched this talk multiple times. Neil is doing what I dream about doing, motivating others by writing and speaking.
After a nice and fairly normal childhood Neil suffered some great losses and he knew he was headed down a dark path. Needing to focus on the good things that life has to offer, he started a blog called 1000 Awesome Things. In this talk, he teaches us about the three things to focus on to help you live an awesome life; attitude, authenticity, and awareness.
Check it out for yourself.
This is what I learned from The 3 A’s of Awesome:
- To allow myself to grieve my losses and then keep looking for the good.
- That I want to embrace my inner three-year-old.
- That I’m going to strive to be the real me and to share my heart on this blog and hope that it helps others along the way.
- That I want to be more like Neil’s dad. I’m going to share the wonders of the world with my children as we explore mangoes from Mexico and dates from Morocco and all of the other amazing things that cross our paths.
Here’s more to help you get your awesome fix:
Neil has written multiple books and he has another great TED talk under his belt which I will feature in a future blog post.
