3 Reason s
( Why you are locked in cycle of defensive failure are -: )

1.Deep in our mind you think you can't do it.
2.Believing that"You don't do things like this" because you highly identify yourself with a false self Identity.
3.Secretly you don't want to do it.

I find it really interesting that so many of the comments are focused on the audience.. (as this one in turn is focused on the previous commenters) as opposed to your own/my own thoughts on our own behaviour and thoughts on the video content.

Found 3 reasons why I wasnt watching this videos which I believed I will watch..
An Amazing talk! The humor feels inauthentic but her words convey her message very clearly. This talk prompted me to look within myself and reflect on the half truths I've been convincing myself of. Also those hand motions are the most articulate I've ever seen. Bravo!

That was a really great, engaging talk! For those of you asking what's wrong with the audience, I would say the mic is probably hooked up so the audio of her comes through clearly on the video, not on the audience to stop a lot of additional noises (coughing, shifting, rustling) coming through.

Amanda, Thanks a lot. For now I had to take some notes to properly weight each word in some parts but you really simplify a complex stuff. I will come back to you in some months. Thanks again. Last thing I'm not understanding why your video is not having some million of visualization.

Emma Stone. Great talk!

Food for thought: How your belly 3 reasons you aren’t doing what 2 days ago   14:31

"Have you ever had a gut feeling or butterflies in your stomach? Has hunger ever changed your mood? Our bellies and brains are physically and biochemically connected in a number of ways, meaning the state of our intestines can alter the way our brains work and behave, giving a whole new meaning to 'Food for thought'.

As a nutritionist, microbiologist and neuroscientist, Ruairi Robertson is passionate about the link between our bellies and brains. His research is examining how our intestines and the microbes within them can influence both physical and mental health, and most importantly how our diets influence this relationship. Ruairi has travelled the world researching food, and believes it is the key to global public health. Ruairi is a PhD student in University College Cork in Ireland and current Fulbright Scholar (2015/16) to Harvard University.
