Robert E. Grant is sharing what makes beautiful mind: any moment free from fear is an opportunity to taste immortality and new possibilities.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

"Man's immortality is not living forever, every moment free from fear is immortal." Very true, so spot on.

I wish I’d watched this TED talk earlier, I feel like I’ve heard the same message hundreds of times but this really resonated with me. I’ve always been a naturally anxious person, but feeling gratitude is a great thing to do on a daily basis, it’s basically a practice to keep yourself grounded.

Top speech. It really does takes seconds to change your mind/life. And if you really do move with purpose you can pretty much achieve anything. And if you fail you fail, learn, get up and go do. Fear? What's that? I remember months ago when we were in lockdown, sick, losing loved ones, losing incomes, losing businesses and houses...and now I have to be scared of life throwing anything else at me?🤣 I promised myself if I get through that, I'll never take anything for granted, work harder and smarter never to be in any sh!tty position again.

The movie “Invictus” directed by Clint Eastwood starring Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela and Matt Damon as the Captain of the South African rugby team is a great movie. That is where I first heard the poem this man recited. The movie tells a beautiful story about Mandela and his struggles and overcoming fear and being able to forgive and not give up and not losing hope.

I live this way and I have overcome things that most humans could not survive, and over a span of 15 years, I have had 4 separate Doctors tell me so. Gratefulness as well as graciousness are life savers. I didn't realize it but I'm a person who will not give up nor give in because it makes no sense for me to do so. My sister once called me a "scrapper" but that's not the case. It's more of a moving forward. I love the quote from the Patsy Cline story (Sweet Dreams) "Somebody's gotta be happy, it might as well be me..." That gave me a strange sort of courage because it reminded me that happiness is a God given right and so that also includes me. So all of the abuses that I had suffered needed and answer and it was not to quit, but to thrive. The credit goes to the creator who's love showers all humans if they would just look up...and be grateful.

Implementation of any plans in life and staying on the course of the plan will pretty much determine any expectations is what he is saying. And it's so true. Another aspect of it is acting upon our dreams with the right intention, sequence, perseverance, and no faer, rather than just dreaming alone draws 80-100 % every expectation towards our hands.

Exactly. Anxiety always involves things that are going to happen at some time other than now. If you can completely stop yourself from thinking about a time other than now, you will be unable to feel fear, and you will experience eternity in a moment.

Perhaps not free from fear but free from the fear of fear. I think there is value in fear. It can be useful and there are reasons we have the ability to feel fear. Fear is not necessarily the enemy but your relationship to it can make fear into an enemy.

Very inspiring speech, thank you 🙏. When I listen to such people I understand the holy Quran more than when listening to the explanation of the Moslem scholars. Because when God sent Adam and ave down to earth , he told them , “ those who follow my guidance, should have no fear or sadness “. This is what we neeed on earth to live happy,: no fear about the future and no regret or remorse about the past, by being thankful and living now.

Strange that there are so few responses to this excellent talk. Fear is indeed one of the most crippling emotions there is, and overcoming fear the most valuable asset you can develop. Some fear has a function and its wise to distinguish between justified and unjustified fear. But most fear the latter.. I would love to have seen a transcription of the poem he recites in the end.

I got off the plane and found I had perspired THROUGH my entire suit. 🥵

touching story, and very encouraging, my only doubt is if everyone did so the world would be better? how many private planes would carry husbands of parturants around? unfortunately the speech does not concern equality for everyone, but only for those who succeed, in this way it works. Certainly it is good to push the best, and the point of not being afraid is the highest and praiseworthy, because having it is just a mistake cultivated badly in the psyche, and can only do harm to themselves and to others, especially useless, it seems as if the legacy of fear that saves the prehistoric man from the beasts, returns transmuted but with unscathed strength in fragmented anxieties for things that basically do not kill us, but they are experienced as if the wolves were at our door. how the world works is another story. Thanks!
