Ted talk: Scott Dinsmore – How to find work you love


I truly recommend this Ted talk to everyone. Millions of graduates get out of school not having any clue what they want to do with their lives. Millions of people work at jobs that they don’t enjoy and have a strong hate for Mondays. Scott Dinsmore talks about finding ways to identify what you are passionate about. Find out what you like to do, find out what you are excited about and what you want to pursue.

He says there are two reasons why people don’t do things:

  1. They tell themselves they can’t do them
  2. People around them tell them they can’t do it.

Either way they either give up or don’t even start!!

“Surround yourself with people who motivate you, who make you happy, who inspire you! Environment is everything, people around you matter! You don’t need to change your goals, you need to change your surroundings.” -Scott Dinsmore

“You are the average of 5 people you spend the most time with” – Jim Rohn

He addresses a great question at the end:

What would the world look like if 80% of the people would like and enjoy what they do? How would people treat each other then?…it would be a whole lot different world for sure!
