  1. I'm sorry, but this TED talk was useless to me because I cannot accept the validity of overcoming the fear of failure from someone whose life was cushy. I do not say this man cannot experience it, but I cannot relate to someone who works currently at Google, used to work at Microsoft, and helped invent a process with Alta Vista. You give me someone who came from NOTHING, not being able to get a job, no money, no privilege in their background with the loving parents and 2.5 kids with the nice house and I might find it a bit more believable. This may be talking about overcoming the fear of failure, but it's on a corporate level. The individual that is stuck in a dead-end job and cannot move forward with education or situation due to financial or responsibility-related reasons is a much different story than someone who had successful careers at three of the most prestigious companies to work with. I hope others can be enlightened by him, but for now, my path is darkened on his discussion.
