It’s kind of hard to express in words why it was so moving, other than to say that by the time Simon finished his sermon, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Everyone had tears in their eyes.
Perhaps it’s true, as Simon explains, that the part of our brain that control emotions doesn’t control speech. Thus, when we truly feel something that clicks with our hearts, it’s hard to justify in words, or finding words that accurately expresses how we feel.
His talk has been watched over 2.6 million times on Ted.com and is one of the 20 most-watched TEDTalks. However, the quality of that video on TED is disappointing. Here’s a version of the same video I found on YouTube (below) that’s of better quality.
Watch it even if you have no interest in being a leader in the traditional sense. After all, we are all leaders of our own destiny. The happier we can inspire ourselves to be, the happier the world will be for everyone else.
Check out the video and let me know your thoughts in the comment section. :)
