  1. What a treat to hear this genius speak. I m in owe with his brain….amazing writer. Thank you Robert!!! Your books have helped me so much!!!

  2. I am not big fan of TED, I found most of the orators are charlatans, who came to the auditorium to sell informercial. But the speech by Robert Greene changed my mind a little. I can feel he spoke from the bottom of his heart, he was ingenious and sincere. I am especially drawn to his voice and cadance. I can listen to this video again and again just for his voice.

  3. Great advice for people who can ultimately create something new or life changing for the masses. Something you can give or sell. The information in his books is great. However, most should only expect to find inner peace and self fulfillment by becoming experts in their chosen field or favorite pastime. This may be all you need anyway!

  4. Summary: When we see a person successfully in any area, we think it was luck, because that is what is visible to the eyes. But we do not really see what the person went through, what she had to do, how she developed herself, how much reflection she had, the failures, the readings, the clear nights, anyway … we do not see what is not visible to the eyes, which is what really matters, save it. Therefore, instead of always focusing on what is visible to the eyes, as it is said, that are appearances, wealth, money, results mainly, we should focus on learning … focus on the road to success, focus on way to the result and forget about it (result), because as we have seen is the process that matters. It is each experience, it is every learning, it is being focused 100% in the present moment that brings effectiveness to our days and makes us reach our goals and life purposes. It is to be really interested in learning, not for what learning will bring (money, success), but for learning and self-development itself.
