TED Talks to Keep You Motivated

Hi everyone!


We're officially in full summer swing - HAPPY JULY - and will continue to publish bi-weekly episodes of The Successful Failure Podcast. The honest truth (is there such thing as a dishonest truth? hmmmm) is that our guests have chaotic schedules over the summer and so do our post-production volunteers. Sure, we could be less particular about the guests we feature and deliver audio that's not quite up to snuff (this is a learning curve folks, and I hope it's getting better), but that's NOT what we want this podcast to be about. So, we're spreading out the time between episodes to give you, our AWESOME audience the best we can deliver. We'll be back to a weekly schedule after US Labor Day in early September.

That doesn't mean we don't have anything for you on our off weeks - not by a long shot. Two weeks ago we shared our FREE Thank You eBook to help motivate you through your failures to the successes waiting at the other side. This week we're sharing more tasty treats to keep the hearth-fires of motivation burning. Our featured content today comes courtesy of a FABULOUS piece in written by Kim Lachance Shandrow. You can read the full article, which is wonderful and totally worth the read, 4 Motivating TED Talks to Help You Bounce Back from Failure here.

In the meantime, we've culled the TED Talks Ms. Shandrow highlights and embedded them here for your viewing pleasure. Featuring raw, motivational, and relatable stories from Kathryn Schulz, Larry SmithSarah Lewis, and Elizabeth Gilbert these clips remind us that failure is not only an option, it's an inevitable...but it's not the end, unless we decide to let it be.
