#TEDTalkTuesday: Believing, happiness, and dreams

Carol Dweck: The power of believing that you can improve

“Let’s not waste any more lives, because once we know that abilities are capable of such growth, it becomes a basic human right for children, all children, to live in places that create that growth, to live in places filled with yet.”

Shawn Achor: The happy secret to better work

What we need to be able to do is to reverse this formula so we can start to see what our brains are actually capable of. Because dopamine, which floods into your system when you’re positive, has two functions. Not only does it make you happier, it turns on all of the learning centers in your brain allowing you to adapt to the world in a different way.”

Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution!

“And every day, everywhere, our children spread their dreams beneath our feet. And we should tread softly.”
