6 TED Talks To Boost Your Knowledge and Motivation

In 21st century, anything is possible. College degree can now be acquired on-line and a former reality show host has a chance to become the world’s most powerful man. (Let's just hope he doesn't!)

The first step towards achieving your goals is gaining knowledge and motivation to pursue whatever it is you love to do. Strive to become a little bit better at it every single day. We live in the age of The Internet and we still don't know how to use it to our advantage. Those who know how to use it are those who lead. 

Start with something small, like watching TED talks for inspiration. It's a great way to learn and to motivate yourself to do better. I picked some of the most inspirational and knowledgeable TED speakers that I think can help you become a better self in just six lunch breaks.
