Inspirational speech by Tim Minchin
I admire Tim Minchin for his healthy criticism of the current societal and political issues. I think he is the kind of person who always says what he think, despite the awkward social consequences.
This video is worth watching for people who are ready to challenge their beliefs and learn how to live a happier life. Many people around me are too concerned with their future plans or obsess over their past losses and failures. I suppose that the key to a happier lifestyle lies in simple daily pleasures. Good weather or a nice coffee in the morning could make people smile. However, staying positive is a conscious decision. It is only up t you to stay negative or positive. All you need is a little practice and a strong belief that every day is a great day in your life.
Climbing career ladder wouldn’t solve all your problems and make you a happy person. There are a lot of people who are frustrated with their life choices, but are too afraid to change anything in their lives and start living the way they want to. It used to be cool to have an office job decades ago. Right now, office environment turns people into slaves and zombies, who waste half of their time surfing the net and chatting on Facebook. It is time to go to your roots and start doing things that make you feel fulfilled and happy. Helping other people is one way to do it. Starting your own business or simply going to travel the world would change your perspective on life and would make you understand a lot of things.
Most importantly people should stay pro-stuff, not anti-smth. It is difficult to stay positive and avoid self-pity when you always have a negative perception of the world around you.
Good luck on your positive quest in life!
