Instructions – Respond to classmate ted talk discussion.

Classmates response – I agree with the statement that Lidsky said, “I learned that what we see is not a universal truth. It is, not an objective reality. What we see is a unique, personal, virtual reality that is masterfully constructed by our brain. “I believe that what we see is unique to us even though there are others we know or who are around us who do not see things the way we do. Having a unique sight and a brain that can help us think of our own choices or decisions makes us believe in what we are doing to ourselves now and in the future. I also agree that what we see can change how we feel, but he also explains that “what you feel can change what you see.” 

Reality isn’t something you distinguish; it’s something you create in your mind. Isaac Lidsky learned this profound lesson firsthand when unforeseen life circumstances yielded valuable insights. In this reflective, personal talk, he challenges us to let go of excuses, assumptions, and fears, and accept the tremendous responsibility of being the creators of our reality. Isaac says: “Fear replaces the unknown with the awful. Now, fear is self-realizing. When you face the greatest need to look outside yourself and think critically, fear beats a retreat deep inside your mind, shrinking and altering your view, drowning your capacity for critical thought with a flood of unruly emotions. When you face a compelling opportunity to take action, fear lulls you into inaction, enticing you to watch its prophecies fulfill themselves passively.” In my opinion, I think we can turn our weaknesses into our strengths. Sometimes we believe our weaknesses are just that and that we can fix them, if we accept our strengths and weakness we can better ourselves.
