5 Videos That You Need to Watch Today
Once in a while I come across a really cool video on YouTube that really resonates with me.
Here are five such video’s I’ve come across in the last while that may really challenge the way you think about motivation, making decisions, poverty programming, being a scanner, and passion.
#1 – The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
This video really opens up our eyes to some interesting and freaky scientific research around the topic of human motivation.
Have you ever heard the saying that as a parent or boss you should reward any behaviors you want repeated, and punish those that you don’t? Sounds like pretty common sense right?
This video shines a light on some new research related to rewards and punishment systems, especially related to money.
#2 – Are We in Control of Our Decisions?
In this video, Dan Ariely, the author of Predictably Irrational (awesome book by the way) talks about the hidden factors that influence our decisions.
You won’t believe what factors play a role in a decision such as whether or not to be an organ donor or not. You’ll be totally surprised who actually makes that decision for most people.
#3 – Are You Being Programmed for Poverty?
Randy Gage is one of my favorite authors. He’s got a fun, playful energy about him that I really enjoy. He really likes to challenge your thinking.
In this video he talks about two of the biggest movies of all time – Titanic and Avatar, and the subconscious programming hidden within them.
#4 – Refuse to Choose – What to Do When You Want to Do EVERYTHING
Barbara Sher is another one of my favorite authors. Her book “Refuse to Choose” changed my life. She was the first author to introduce me to the concept of being a “Scanner” or “Polymath” and helped me to really embrace that part of my personality.
In this video she talks about being a scanner.
#5 – Hey Rosetta! – There’s An Arc
This is a video of a Canadian band that recorded a raw video for one of their songs that just screams “passion” to me.
It takes a few seconds for them to really get into it, but once they’re all playing together the passion they have for music just pours out.
I’ve watched this video dozens of times and I just love it.
Thanks to Bryant for sharing the first video and to Chris for sharing the last video with me.
