Conclusion was actually before 'Conclusion'. Used meditation and imagination. He does not has to spell everything out...
Saianna Sweet
I watched it two times and I don’t see any sense in it 😂 As I saw in comments I’m not the o my one who think that he can’t/don’t want to share his knowledge with us 😂

Worst structured TEDx talk ever... “there is this amazing solution to help change your life for the better, but i am not going to tell you about and just waste 15 mins of your time telling that it’s great”...
So disappointing - seemed like a great and credible speaker and then this just ended...

Christ, this is extremely disappointing! I was so ready 2hear how about how 2achieve this “functional awareness”.......god damn it.

The "hidden gem" behind this video is that patience, perseverance and determination are all important and relative in making progress towards changing your life in the ways that you want to. I honestly expected to hear a 3 step system of some sort from the speaker, but I guess that's what many of us were expecting based on the other comments that I've read. Is it because that's what we're used to? It seems that we've been spoon fed a lot of the answers over the course of our lives, so much so that we cannot sit through a 14 minute video and accept that sometimes, people just don't make any sense. Good thing I've been meditating more or I wouldn't have been able to make it through.

It like the 5 second rule by Mel Robin so if you want to understand check out her explanation of 5 second rule

Too Funny.
He's looking for a way to create space to use our imagination, and the thing he mentioned as good but not good enough is it.
Meditation is the best way to quiet the mind from distractions so then we have mindfulness.
From there, we live our life.
That's why the Buddha taught it, after all his travels and experiments. It's the Best way.
However, some people want an easier way, somethingthey can "do", rather than to sit still and still the mind.
That can take months, or years for some. So, Best to get started sooner than later.
Hehuh :)

I am actualy angry because I haven't learned anything from this talk. What a waste of time.

*SOLUTION: LANGUAGE & IMAGINATION?* 13:04
Waste of 13 minutes! He finally gives the "solution" is the vaguest terms possible with no example. Worthless talk.
Rohit Goswami
Dear take care God bless u ...R G Delhi
Rohit Goswami
Sorry for waiting dear
andrea tainui
Still waiting....very disappointing...was it because he was worried if he gave us the answer no one would need to seek professional help anymore..???
sinister kitty
WTF?! What a frickin infomercial. Bad form! He should be banned from Ted. AND youtube!
Reincarnation
it takes him nearly 15 minutes to explain a 7 second phenomenon? i am already bored at 3 minutes!
Ron Grego
Sir, that was amazingly well done. Transitionless, flowed like a stream.
Ab Guilford
He was refering to your subconscious mind that makes the decision for you automatically.
Lisa Archibald
Decent speaker but FAIL as he didn’t conclude or deliver on the promised title.
Major fail.
Steven Rogers
With a name like Alistair Horscroft, you probably have to send him money to find out the point of his video :P

www.tedxfremont.com What if someone told you to floss only one tooth everyday? Or start the new year, not with grand resolutions, but with a simple challenge.. like ONE pushup a day? BJ Fogg shows us that the key to lasting change does not lie in planning big, monumental changes, but in thinking really, really small.
