Comment
This is a speech given by Anthony "Tony" Robbins who is an American self-help author and motivational speaker. At the beginning of the speech, he talks about rituals. He says there are rituals to success, love, happiness, riches and so forth. Besides, he mentions that if we do the right things at the wrong times, we get pains. I totally agree with this statement. Rituals are the habits that make you. Your mind is the most powerful machine in the world and will manifest that what you focus on the most. The difficulty comes when you are forming these rituals or these habits because they are not formed over night. However, once formed are next to impossible to break. So, forming the right habits is worth the initial pain. It is true that we have a short-term memory. Therefore, we must keep reminding ourselves that we want to be in touch with our natural state. After a while, it just becomes consistent.

Furthermore, Tony has mentioned about totally focus on the things that make the differences in your life and don't pay attention to what is wrong, bad and lousy. He also emphasized that people make mistakes but your life is still the most important for you to take care of. This is very true. When he is trying a few tricks to show the importance of focus, at first, I refused to think of the things that make me proud, thankful and excited. But, when I actually focus, it is really working. Seriously, it is really inspiring to me.

In conclusion, this is an awesome speech for those who are seeking to change their life to be better and they are tired of making excuses and want to get the right mind-set and philosophies in place so that they can be successful in life and stay that way. Tony is such an amazing person and a good critical thinker. How simple does he make life or success or all that is seem important to us? The statement “take control of your own condition” is really meaningful and hard to understand. Besides, he has asked an empowering question which is “what can you be proud of in your life?” Through this question, he wants to show us that the most powerful way to change your life is through questions.

ii. Mario Teguh
Title of speech: Mario Teguh: The Golden Ways (2 Nop 2008)
Youtube link


Comment
This is a speech given by Mario Teguh who is a familiar motivational speaker in Indonesia. His face is often adorned one of the private TV station in Jakarta, and also a move in the field of Effectiveness Business Consultant. At the beginning of his speech, a guy has asked Pak Mario a question. He has asked about how we can improve ourselves with whatever we have. Pak Mario has answered that we sometimes just see ourselves to be very small but we do not see how big we can contribute to the society. He has emphasized that it is better to be small but having big contribution to the society. Through this statement, it shows that we must realize the value, advantage or character that we have and use them to improve ourselves.

For the second question who is asked by a woman, she has asked that why we must work so hard to be success in life although we have so much weakness. Pak Mario answered that we always think the value or character which we lack for as a weakness. Actually, it is sometimes an advantage for us. I totally agree with his statement because every person has different character and personality. Therefore, it makes every person so different from the others. The character or personality which you do not have other people may be having it. This does not mean that the character that you lack for is a weakness to you. It may be an advantage to you.

In conclusion, Mario Teguh is an incredible motivational speaker. He is also a good example of critical thinker. His speech is really inspiring. To me, we must realize our own weakness and advantage in order to compete with the others and be successful in our life.

iii. Steve Jobs
Title of speech: Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address
Youtube link


Comment
Steven Paul "Steve" Jobs is an American businessman, and the co-founder and chief executive officer of Apple Inc. Jobs previously served as CEO of Pixar Animation Studios and is now a member of the Walt Disney Company's Board of Directors. He is a rich and great man. In this speech, he has told us three different stories about himself. His first story is about connecting the dots. Secondly, it is about love and loss. Finally, his third story is about death.

The story that I like the most is about connecting the dots. “Connecting the dots” is a childhood game played with pen and paper. Hundreds of numbered dots are on the page which the child must connect with her pen. Once she has completed the game, the connected dots will form an animal or some other image. The analogy here is that the child does not know what the image will be before she starts connecting the dots. Steve is taking this one step further, by saying that we have to not only connect the dots, but also place the dots, not knowing the image. Dots signify the actions you take in your life. If you believe in those, you believe in the dots and they would connect going forward in your life.

Besides, Jobs emphasized that our time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. I agree with this statement. We must try to be a leader or be outstanding in order to be success in our life.

In conclusion, this is an excellent and very thought provoking speech. In his speech, he is promoting critical thinking principle. Besides, his speech just goes to show that if you have faith and passion for something, there is always a chance of great success. Steve Jobs is one of the examples.

Yes indeed, the answers obtained from our daily questions can really change our lives.

Pak Mario has answered that we sometimes just see ourselves to be very small but we do not see how big we can contribute to the society.
Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.

Once she has completed the game, the connected dots will form an animal or some other image.
Only females?! Shocked
