TEDx Talk Transcript:
It is so fun to be at TEDx.
All right. So I want your participation in this talk, because I believe that the things that we’re going to share together now may end up changing your life and maybe even save it one day.
So first, how many of you have ever noticed that you only really start to value things in your life when you’re faced with them being gone?
There’s a funny quote that says:
“Most of us use our lives spending money we don’t have, to buy things we don’t need, to impress people we don’t even like.”
So What is Wisdom?
One definition, as a University researcher and current CEO of an organization called Wisdom of the World, I’ve seen a lot of definitions of wisdom. One that I really like is this:
“Wisdom is learning to value the things you have while you have them.”
So most of my life I haven’t done this. I’ve wanted things that I don’t have, or wanted to be someone that I’m not. So there’s a lot of suffering.
