Limbic Inspiration

Interesting video about inspiration’s biological roots, behavior and action.

Browsing through some TED videos for my own benefit, I’m grateful for the generosity of founders of TED and the speakers for sharing.

In this one, Sinek makes some great points about why we do things. And how we are inspired. In closing, Sinek speaks of Martin Luther King’s speech where King spoke of himself, of his “dream”. According to Sinek the people who showed up came for their own sakes. They identified with King’s beliefs and were hence inspired to action.

I found this video inspiring for two reasons: Sinek’s testable thesis and the interesting examples he gives us.
