I want to share something amazing with you. I recently took a cross country trip to do something I’ve never done before.
I was invited to give a “Talk at Google,” which is kind of like a Ted Talk but, you know, at Google. So, I had the chance to present “my material” to an audience of Google employees – right inside their main office.
What’s it like being right in the heart of Google? Amazing, actually. There’s video conferencing screens on virtually every wall. The vibe is incredibly cerebral, everyone deep in thought and focused on their work, obviously doing cool stuff. Food pods seem to be every 30 yards or so, and they have workout space that has to rival NFL pro teams. I was blown away.
Here’s the video to check out my talk (please jump over to Youtube, like it, and comment when you check it out):
There’s no question that Google is at the forefront of the movement for a more connected planet. They’re driving massive changes right now in how human beings interact with one another in the outside world.
So I was incredibly excited to talk with them about how we make internal change happen.
If you’ve been following my stuff at all, you know I’m a huge advocate for finding fulfillment and mastering our inner game while making external changes. Why? Because our potential for success is ultimately limited by our beliefs and our internal view of the world.
Our ability to impact and improve the world around us is hugely impacted by our control over our own mental state. The less freedom you have over the choices you make, the less good you’ll be able to do for others.
Here’s the promise I made to the people at Google:
“You all want to make a difference… This time should make a difference. So let’s open to the possibility that this talk could profoundly change you.”
Listen, I know you’re busy just like all those Googlers. So I’ll make the same promise to you…
Set your intention for change when you carve out the space to watch this. Get rid of all your distractions just for an hour or so. Bring your full awareness to this, and get ready to begin your journey toward a deeply fulfilling and productive life.
Please let me know how it goes for you in the comments. And if you want to know more about “Identity Shifting,” check out what’s going on over here: http://identityshifting.com.
PS – OK, I can’t not share this. I met a lot of cool people at Google, but one of the coolest had to be Chade-Meng Tan. He’s Google’s “Jolly Good Fellow” (yes, that’s his actual job title) and just got nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize! I definitely recommend you check him out. Just Google him ;)
