As a creativity consultant and international speaker,. Courtney Ferrell can be found standing at the busy intersection of ideas, energy, and people. Her latest idea, Girl Up, empowers young women to take full advantage of their gifts, their independence, and their possibilities in order to create an extraordinary life for themselves. In the past decade, she has worked intimately with thousands of young women as a speaker, teacher, coach, dorm mother, and mentor. Her mission is to provide girls with actions and language that will help them put common (and uncommon) sense into practice and become a sought-after person without compromising who they are.

You know who an amazing person is? And you know who someone who is worth it? You know who is perfectly wonderful? And I think you know who they are. You might wonder who that person is, but you know them.
Who? Read the first word from each sentence in the paragraph above.
lessons to take from this talk:
1. self confidence is knowing you'll become bigger and stronger than you are right now.
2. perfection is not a human quality - let go of it.
3. be authentic. if it's not your thing, don't do it.
4. trust your gut.
5. if someone doesn't value you, cut them from your life right away.
6. Tess rhymes with Mess.
If I were that girl I would have cried through the whole talk and gave that incredible woman the biggest hug! We need more women like that all over the world to uplift the girls because the world does nothing but make us more confused about life and our self worth. She has an incredible energy and passion!
I loved this Ted Talk (I wish I had grown up with even one parent like her)...Anyways, it also made me think of my inspirational friend Lily, who would have been the sister I would have chosen (if given the choice) 💕
I am sorry, she really IS amazing, she makes some great points and is a wonderful source of inspiration, EXCEPT: guys also need to tell themselves they're beautiful, or handsome, or whatever have you. Society won't do that for them either, and some can be very insecure. Society won't have that. Society will tell them to "man up".
Guys also need to know when to break up and get away from a toxic relationship. They need to know when they are being psychologically bullied, they shouldn't always be automatically seen as the culprit, and never the victim.
I have many guy friends, I can guarantee sleeping around is not the only thing they have in mind. Not every guy wants to sleep with you, that's not the only thing they see in you. What a narrow-minded way to view humanity. At the same time, I know girls who are like that.
Enough with shaming one gender to better the position of the other. Why is this beautiful inspirational talk full of just "girl power"? Why this exclusion?
I'm sure she meant no harm. Sometimes we just don't realise. I mean no disrespect to her work or to her. It just bothered me, as a 25-year-old woman with many 17-24-year-old friends, girls and guys, to hear it spoken this way. I don't want my sister to think every guy will want to sleep with her.
I'll stay with her positive energy, the self-love and her lovely ideas of inspiring others. I wish she would reconsider some parts.
Boys and men, please love yourselves as well. Enough so to not accept the roles society wants you to have.
That was so inspiring I watched it a couple of times and I actually cried. I've never been told that. You are someone I look up at, you stirred something in me,I guess hope. I loved your energy, body language, presentation skills and charisma as much as I loved the content. Hopefully you'll be able to do more of these talks in the future. The world needs people like you.
Good self-esteem, authenticity, financial independence,decisiveness, self-determination are all required to be spiritually and totally independent. What Courtney is demonstrating is what everyone needs to hear.
This is profoundly powerful and I just realised I need to start today, I am inspired and more so, I am 24 years old so today is the day!! Thank you, God bless you Courtney.
" Don't aim to be perfect, just be good enough" Taking that with me
I wish so so so so badly I had an influential person in my life to have sat me down and said even HALF of these things to me when I was impressionable.
I had two parents growing up- but they were more quantity over quality.
I ADORED this TED Talk! Her energy was contagious and what she speaks of, is how I approach work with the youth I am fortunate enough to support. If I run a girls group next year...this is SO going to be a part of it to inspire each other. I WISH I had had a mentor and that's why I go hard for the youth I work with as I know I would've reached different heights if this type of sister love existed when I was entering the work force.
And this is 3 yrs old?! It's applicable to today...probably even more so considering all the movements over the last few years.
I am an 18 year old girl and I have dreams and ambitions, which I often forget about, partly because I feel lost and I need guidance to be able to pursue them. I wish I had mentors, no matter what their job and interests are, because I would learn from them. However if I do not get any help and have to make it on my own, I intend to make an effort to help those young women after me, because we all need guidance and empowerment to accomplish being the best versions of ourselves. I wish one day I will be able to inspire young women and generally people all over the world like this woman has inspired me. Maybe I'll try to do a public talk even though I have stage fright, but any way will be good enough.
I think you learn.. and don't be afraid.. Take youre time.. Most important is take good care off yourself.. learn to say no.. don't be too nice. Love yourself.. Do something you like.. and find a balansen in work/study and time too relax. Money makes you independ.. and is therefore important.. Wish jou luck.. life is a powerfull and you learn.. who you are.. in time.. and what you need to be happy..
Sarapv87 Books written by or about successful ppl can act as your mentor if you don’t have ppl irl available to you.
I reccomend Jack Canfield’s Sucess principles as a start on how to understand what you want and how to go about getting it. Or to start thinking at least, as following it strictly might give you tunnel vision in a negative way.

Несомненно, сложность разрешения семейных неурядиц обусловлено тем, что между супругами, как правило, нет соглашения, брачного контракта и они предъявляют друг другу различные требования, как материального так и морального характера. Как показывает наша практика, прийти в такой ситуации к обоюдному решении семейного спора очень сложно и, порой, без вмешательства адвоката по семейным делам,— невозможно.
