TED Talk: What reality are you creating for yourself?
Isaac Lidsky

Reality isn’t something you perceive; it’s something you create in your mind. Isaac Lidsky learned this profound lesson firsthand, when unexpected life circumstances yielded valuable insights. In this introspective, personal talk, he challenges us to let go of excuses, assumptions and fears, and accept the awesome responsibility of being the creators of our own reality.

How do you live your life eyes wide open?

It is a learned discipline. It can be taught. It can be practiced.

  • Hold yourself accountable for every moment, every thought, every detail.
  • See beyond your fears.
  • Recognize your assumptions.
  • Harness your internal strength.
  • Silence your internal critic.
  • Correct your misconceptions about luck and about success.
  • Accept your strengths, and your weaknesses, and understand the difference.
  • Open your hearts to your bountiful blessings.
  • Your fears, your critics, your heroes, your villains, they are your excuses, rationalizations, shortcuts, justifications…your surrender.

    They are fictions you perceive as reality. Choose to see through them, choose to let them go.

  • You are the creator of your reality.

    With that empowerment, comes complete responsibility.
