Scott Amyx will give a TED talk on Strive: How Doing the Things Most Uncomfortable Leads to Success.
Find out how doing the things most uncomfortable leads to success. Pioneering thought leader Scott Amyx shows anyone striving to succeed, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are, that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but doing the things uncomfortable he calls “strive”.
Drawing on his own powerful story of an impoverished immigrant frequently told that he would mount to nothing, Amyx, now a celebrated venture capitalist and futurist, describes his meteoric rise from obscurity to prominence, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not intellect, opportunities or even network but pursuing personal change that’s uncomfortable.
The concept of Strive is then applied to transformation of industries and nations. Scott shares how the doing the things most uncomfortable can transform the most conflict-ridden regions and countries in the world to develop sustainable economic growth through the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
