The Secret is out
, you're an idiot, because
there is no secret to life, there is only useful knowledge. And to acquire
all the valuable knowledge that you need, takes time, skill and commitment. To fully understand
yourself and the world around you, takes a lot of deliberate learning. There's no
easy breakthroughs, there's no tearing down the walls, there's no quick
fix, there's no short answers, there's no simple sayings, there's no
spontaneous enlightenment, there's only deliberate learning, which takes time and lots of valuable knowledge and information.
So one of your most valuable commitments that you should have in life, is
a commitment to learning. No one

"You can offer advice. You can show what has worked for
others. You can inspire through the demonstration of what people
can overcome. But then you must let go of the expectation of
change and leave it in the hands of the individual."

Be aware of your
options, choices and logical directions.
There is a calculated life and there is a uncalculated life. To
follow your heart, or to live your life, or to live a life of
purpose, does not say that you calculated the the effects of your life. If the
calculations prove that your actions provided a positive
outcome, then your heart was right, and your purpose in life is
now scientifically proven to be good. I'm not living a selfish
life, I'm giving more then I receive, and my reward is having
the freedom to enjoy my life and doing the things that I like
doing. "Math is awesome, you can
calculate everything. And when we have

that we will have more

Everyone says find something that you're
passionate about doing, but that is not as simple as it sounds.
You should definitely have something to be excited about, like a
kid who's excited about going to Disney world. If you don't have
that reason to be excited when you wake up every day, then
you'll most likely be living a life that's random and
meaningless. You need to be actively involved in creation, or
providing a service that helps support creation, if not, than
you're most likely killing creation, killing life, and that's
not what humans are for. Humans are protectors of life. But when
people are misinformed, they can easily become killers without
even knowing it. And the keyword here is
, and the opposite of misinformed is informed,
meaning, having much knowledge or education, fully understanding
the world and fully understanding yourself.
Motivation is made up of many things. It is a series of steps.
You want to do something, so you want the most effective and
efficient way possible for accomplishing your goal, a way that
would provide the best results. Being motived is not always
enough. Even though being excited and passionate about your goal
is important, you also have to be organized and
being organized and focused is a task in itself. If you makes
, just learn from those mistakes and keep
progressing towards your goal. Remember this is also a learning
journey, and obstacles are part of the journey. They will be
challenging, but they will not stop you, because every problem
can be solved.

drives. A drive is an "excitatory state produced by a homeostatic
disturbance", an instinctual need that has the power of driving the
behaviour of an individual. Drive theory is based on the principle that
organisms are born with certain psychological needs and that a negative
state of tension is created when these needs are not satisfied. When a
need is satisfied, drive is reduced and the organism returns to a state of
homeostasis and relaxation. According to the theory, drive tends to
increase over time and operates on a feedback control system, much like a

defined by Forsyth as "a descriptive model of leadership which maintains

achieve a certain performance standard. Relationship-oriented (or

enhance the motivation, morale, and job performance of followers through a
variety of mechanisms; these include connecting the follower's sense of

you are only misleading. Good leadership is measured by how well you
inform your followers so that they are totally aware that they are also
responsible for the success of the desired goals, and that the followers
must fully understand the implications of these goals. So one of these
responsibilities is making sure that you have a good plan and not just a
good leader. You can't be dependent on leadership, it's just illogical for
a human to be dependent on anything.
So what's more important, Leadership
This is not to say that
leadership is not important or that leadership is not effective,
because It got us this far. But being dependent on leaders is
not sustainable. Leadership is a sign of weakness and ignorance,
which are two things you can't have if you plan to survive and
thrive as a species. So as a leader, if you are not taking the
necessary steps to rid your organization of ignorance and
dependency, you are just ignoring the fact that failure and
decay are imminent. Then most likely you are not a leader, you
are most likely to be a very ignorant criminal and a liar.

If people are drawn to you because you are open to others
You offer advice and counsel. If you find yourself advising
your colleagues, and your friends are asking you to counsel
them--if people seem to seek out and value what you say--then
your empathy is strong and your perspective has real-world
usefulness to those around you. If you often help those around
you navigate their rough patches.
People count on you. If people rely on you, it follows that

You're a good listener and people confide in you. Being able

knowledge against them, are signs of strong leadership--not to

is more important than speaking, and if people know they can

You insist on excellence. As Aristotle said, we are what we

show rather than say, deliver rather than promise. If you are
not making excuses or blaming others but holding up the standard
of excellence and quality.
You have a positive attitude. Positive, optimistic people
make people around them happy. A positive outlook doesn't blind
you to problems or issues but allows you to seek out something
good in almost every situation and to know that eventually
things will be all right. It's the kind of spirit that keeps

How do you convince someone to have more faith in
People have faith in only certain people. People have faith in
certain leaders, but not other people who could benefit them more. They
don't look to you for advice, but they would listen to advice from
strangers. The ways that people choose where they get their information
from is not even good reasoning. People listen more to the TV then they
listen to people with extensive knowledge. People believe that a person
with a degree, or a license, or a diploma are more trust worthy and more
knowledgeable, this is a false assumption, and a very dangerous one. But
the opposite is also true, not listening to a professional can also be
dangerous. People need to focus on the information and learn how to

His Holiness Pope Francis: Why the only future worth building includes
(video and interactive text - Filmed Apr 2017, 17:52)
Good evening – or, good morning, I am not sure what
it is there. Regardless of the hour, I am thrilled to be
participating in your conference. I very much like its title – "The Future
You" – because, while looking at tomorrow, it invites us to open a
dialogue today, to look at the future through a "you." "The Future You:"
the future is made of yous, it is made of encounters, because life flows
through our relations with others
Quite a few years of life have strengthened my conviction that each and
everyone's existence is deeply tied to that of others: life is not time
merely passing by, life is about interactions. As I meet, or lend an
ear to those who are sick, to the
terrible hardships in search of a brighter future, to prison inmates who
carry a hell of pain inside their hearts, and to those, many of them
young, who cannot find a
, I often find myself wondering: "Why
them and not me
?" I, myself, was born in a family of migrants; my
father, my grandparents, like many other Italians, left for Argentina and
met the fate of those who are left with nothing. I could have very well
ended up among today's "discarded" people. And that's why I always ask
myself, deep in my heart: "Why them and not me?" First and foremost, I
would love it if this meeting could help to remind us that we all need
each other, none of us is an
, an autonomous and independent "I," separated from the other,
and we can only build the future by standing together, including everyone.
We don’t think about it often, but
everything is connected
and we need to restore our connections to a healthy state. Even the
in my heart against my brother or my sister, the open wound that was never
cured, the offense that was never
, the rancor that is only going to hurt me, are all instances
of a fight that I carry within me, a flare deep in my heart that needs to
be extinguished before it goes up in flames, leaving only ashes behind.
Many of us, nowadays, seem to believe that a happy future is something
impossible to achieve. While such concerns must be taken very seriously,
they are not invincible. They can be overcome when we don't lock our door
to the outside world. Happiness
can only be discovered as a gift of harmony
between the whole and each single component. Even
– and you know it better than I do – points to an
understanding of reality as a place where every element connects and
interacts with everything else. And this brings me to my second
message. How wonderful would it be if the growth of
would come along with more equality and
social inclusion. How wonderful would it be, while we discover faraway
planets, to rediscover the needs of the brothers and sisters orbiting
around us. How wonderful would it be if solidarity, this beautiful and, at
times, inconvenient word, were not simply reduced to
, and became, instead, the
default attitude in political, economic and scientific choices, as well as
in the relationships
peoples and countries. Only by educating
to a true solidarity will we be able to overcome the "culture
," which doesn't concern only food and goods but, first and
foremost, the people who are cast aside by our
even realizing it, are now putting products at their core, instead of
term that many wish to erase from the dictionary. Solidarity, however, is
not an automatic mechanism. It cannot be
programmed or controlled
. It is a free response born from the heart of
each and everyone. Yes, a free response
When one realizes that life, even in the middle of so many
, is a gift, that
is the source and
the meaning of life
, how can they
withhold their urge to do good to another fellow being? In order to do
good, we need memory
we need courage and we need creativity
I know that TED gathers many creative minds. Yes, love does require a
creative, concrete and ingenious attitude. Good intentions and
conventional formulas, so often used to appease our conscience, are not
enough. Let us help each other
all together, to remember that the other is not a statistic or a number.
The other has a face. The "you" is always a real presence, a person to
take care of. There is a parable Jesus told to help us understand the
difference between those who'd rather not be bothered and those who take
care of the other. I am sure you have heard it before. It is the Parable
of the Good Samaritan
. When Jesus was
asked: "Who is my neighbor?" - namely, "Who
should I take care of
?" - he told this story, the story of a man who
had been assaulted, robbed, beaten and abandoned along a dirt road. Upon
seeing him, a priest and a Levite, two very influential people of the
time, walked past him without stopping to help. After a while, a
Samaritan, a very much despised ethnicity at the time, walked by. Seeing
the injured man lying on the ground, he did not ignore him as if he
weren't even there. Instead, he felt compassion for this man, which
compelled him to act in a very concrete manner. He poured oil and wine on
the wounds of the helpless man, brought him to a hostel and paid out of
his pocket for him to be assisted. The story of the Good Samaritan is
the story of today’s humanity
. People's paths
are riddled with suffering, as everything is centered
, and things, instead of people. And often there is this
habit, by people who call themselves "respectable," of not taking care of
the others, thus leaving behind thousands
human beings, or entire populations, on the side of the road. Fortunately,
there are also those who are creating a new world by taking care of the
other, even out of their own pockets. Mother Teresa actually said: "One
cannot love, unless it is at their own expense." We have so much to do,
and we must do it together. But how can we do that with all the evil we
breathe every day? Thank God, no system can nullify our desire to open up
to the good, to
and to our capacity to react
, all of which
stem from deep within our hearts. Now you might tell me, "Sure, these are
beautiful words, but I am not the Good Samaritan, nor Mother Teresa of
Calcutta." On the contrary: we are precious, each and every one of us.
Each and every one of us is irreplaceable in the eyes of God. Through the
darkness of today's conflicts, each and every one of us can become a
bright candle, a reminder that light will overcome darkness, and never the
other way around. To Christians, the future does have a name, and its
name is Hope
. Feeling hopeful does
not mean to be optimistically naïve and ignore the tragedy humanity is
facing. Hope is the virtue of a heart that doesn't lock itself into
darkness, that doesn't dwell on the
, does not simply get by in the present, but is able to see a
tomorrow. Hope is the door
that opens onto the future
. Hope is a humble,
hidden seed of life
time, will develop into a large tree. It is like some invisible yeast that
allows the whole dough to grow, that brings flavor to all aspects of life.
And it can do so much, because a tiny flicker
that feeds on hope is enough to shatter the shield of
darkness. A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that
individual can be you. And then there will be another "you," and another
"you," and it turns into an "us." And so, does hope begin when we have an
"us?" No. Hope began with one "you." When there is an "us
there begins a revolution. The third message I would like to share
today is, indeed, about revolution
revolution of tenderness
And what is tenderness? It is the love that comes close and becomes real.
It is a movement that starts from our heart and reaches the eyes, the ears
and the hands. Tenderness means to use our eyes to see the other, our ears
to hear the other, to listen to the children, the poor, those who are
afraid of the future. To listen also to the silent cry of our common home,
of our sick and polluted
. Tenderness means to use our hands and our heart to comfort the
other, to take care of those in need. Tenderness is the language of the
young children, of those who need the other. A child’s love for mom and
dad grows through their touch, their gaze, their voice, their tenderness.
I like when I hear parents
talk to their babies
, adapting to the little child, sharing the same
level of communication
. This is
tenderness: being on the same level as the other. God himself descended
into Jesus to be on our level. This is the same path the Good Samaritan
took. This is the path that Jesus himself took. He lowered himself, he
lived his entire human existence practicing the real, concrete
language of love
. Yes, tenderness
is the path of choice for the strongest, most courageous men and women.
Tenderness is not weakness; it is fortitude. It is the path of solidarity,
the path of humility. Please, allow me to say it loud and clear:
the more powerful you are
, the more
your actions will have an impact on people, the
more responsible you are
humbly. If you don’t, your power will ruin you, and you will ruin the
other. There is a saying in Argentina: "Power is like drinking gin on an
empty stomach." You feel dizzy, you get drunk, you lose your balance, and
you will end up hurting yourself and those around you, if you don’t
connect your power with humility and tenderness. Through
and concrete love, on
the other hand, power – the highest, the strongest one – becomes a
service, a force for good. The future of humankind isn't exclusively in
the hands of politicians, of great
, of big companies. Yes, they do hold an
. But the
future is, most of all, in the hands of those people who recognize the
other as a "you" and themselves as part of an "us."
We all need each other
so, please, think of me as well with tenderness, so that I can fulfill the
task I have been given for the good of the other, of each and every one,
of all of you, of all of us
Thank you. ~

"Crisis of Confidence" Speech

"I want to
talk to you right now about a fundamental threat to American democracy...
I do not refer to the outward strength of America, a nation that is at
peace tonight everywhere in the world, with unmatched economic power and
military might. The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a
crisis of confidence
. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and
soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the
growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a
unity of purpose for our nation...In a nation that was proud of hard work,
strong families, close-knit communities, and our faith in God, too
us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption
. Human identity is
no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns. But we've
discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our
longing for meaning...."

Under Pressure Lyrics
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets
Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor
These are the days - it never rains but it pours
People on streets - people on streets
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher, higher, higher...
Pressure on people - people on streets
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give
love, give love, give love, give love?..
'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
