English IV Yasmine Sadud The TED talk that has had more impact on me was the one about success. The speaker talked about how once people get success they stop doing all the things that made them successful. This talk had had an impact on me because of three reasons. The first reason is that this talk taught me that we have to fight for our goals and dreams even though this might take a long time. Some people dream of having a big company and they´re waiting to get successful in a short period of time, but this is not easy at all. A second reason is that we get motivated by this talk because if we work hard, we will reach as many goals as we want. I think nothing is impossible and many people believe the same. Big companies, for example “Coke” sets a good example on how to try to apply new strategies to be successful. The last reason is that this doesn´t happen only with companies. This could happen in every aspect of your life. For example, if you want to become a great singer, you have to take classes. You should practice and practice and then you can sing perfectly, but if you quit classes, because you believe that you already know everything, you might start singing terribly. The truth is that if you stop practicing, you can lose your singing skill. This sounds weird, but it has happened to me. This is when people begin to lose opportunities. In conclusion, we don´t have to stop pursuing our goals even if we think we already have everything we wanted.
