Pull up a chair. This will be the most pleasurable, most inspirational 20 minutes of your day.
Infectiously enthusiastic and utterly adorable Benjamin Zander starts this amazing TED talk with a demonstration of the surprising emotive power of classical music. With spritely charm, he shows how his job in life is to awaken the possibility in other people.
“It’s one of the characteristics of a leader that he not doubt for one moment the capacity of the people he’s leading to realize whatever he’s dreaming.”
But “Inspiration Instigator” is not a job reserved exclusively for him. Nor is it reserved for artists, conductors, musicians, or other creatives.
Inspiration is your job.
According to Zander “the definition of success is not wealth, fame or power, but how many shining eyes are around me.”
