Description

If I were to ask you to name a successful person, who would come to mind? Warren Buffett, Thomas Edison, and Mark Zuckerberg jump to my mind. And I would be willing to bet that your examples are similar. Most likely, they’re rich and famous. Is that why they’re successful? Society would want us to believe that. But why should we let society dictate the definition? We are more than capable of defining success for ourselves. It isn’t likely that we will all become immensely wealthy--and that’s just fine. Because if we reexamine the path to success, we can all be successful. Jordan Griffen studies Chemistry and Economics as a member of the Edgar Fellows Honors Program at SUNY Geneseo. Over the past twenty years, he has been an athlete, a singer, a dancer, an actor, a writer, an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, and almost everything in between. Jordan never has been hard to locate, and on any given day can be found lifting weights at the gym, reading a book on the porch, or napping on the beach. He has always considered himself blessed to have an amazing support system of family and friends that enable him to pursue his dreams. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
