Ted Talk: What reality are you creating for yourself?

Hey 20 Somethings!!

I find ted talks motivating and powerful, so every now and then I like to browse through to see what I can find. Today, I have a deep topic for you, but I also believe it is a topic that in the process of self-actualization, you cannot ignore.

In this ted talk, Isaac Lidsky talks about reality and how we create our own reality as humans. Since going blind when he was younger, Isaac describes how losing his sight has impacted his perception. With plenty of profound insights into this topic, Isaac is certain that “what you see impacts how you feel, and the way you feel can literally change how you see.”

As humans, we create our own reality. Furthermore, we create our reality by allowing our fears to take over. Our fears directly influence our feelings and misleads our perception. I try to be mindful of my feelings, which is definitely harder than it seems. I find that admitting my fears to myself require a great deal of effort. Personally, it is uncomfortable to face your fears, yet so liberating at the same time.

After listening to this ted talk, I want to make a more conscious effort to consider my fears and how they may distort my own reality. What reality are you creating for yourself? Is there anyway you are holding yourself back?
