Cultural lies and how to live a better life

Cultural lies and how to live a better life

David Brooks is changing what we think a successful life really is with this fascinating 2019 Ted Talk

On his latest TED Talk, "The lies our culture tells us about what matters–and a better way to live," David Brooks highlights that–apart from having an economic crisis, an environmental crisis, and a political crisis–we have a social and relational crisis. During his talk, he exposes three cultural lies, seeking to bring awareness to these beliefs and help us realize the need for a cultural and relational revolution. A revolution that empowers all of us to live a more meaningful, filled with purpose, and joy based life.
