Scott Dinsmore's mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing. He is a career change strategist whose demoralizing experience at a Fortune 500 job launched his quest to understand why 80% of adults hate the work they do, and more importantly, to identify what the other 20% were doing differently. His research led to experiences with thousands of employees and entrepreneurs from 158 countries. Scott distilled the results down to his Passionate Work Framework - three surprisingly simple practices for finding and doing work you love, that all happen to be completely within our control. He makes his career tools available free to the public through his community at
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

RIP Scott - Very inspiring fellow. Here's the summary of his talk "What is the work you CAN'T NOT do?" [1st step is to become an expert on yourself] -Analyze your strengths, find out what you naturally enjoy doing. -Discover your values: What is "Success" for you? Is it being very rich? Very healthy? Having a big family? [2nd do the impossible] -Challenge yourself more and more. The more you accomplish, the more you realize you CAN accomplish [3rd surround yourself with the right people] -Make friends with people who are positive and doing the things that you wish you could be doing. Your environment is definitely something you can change -Do you have any negative people in your life? Get rid of them - they're not helping you These are all things you can control, so figure out what it is you need to do and do it.

@Fady Safa2y maybe you got your answer. But it’s “What is the work you CAN’T NOT do?” What that means is, what is the work you can’t go through life without doing. For example, I’m always working on a project that I want to build. From that question, it’s clear to me that project management is work that I CAN’T NOT do, because It’s clearly what I do even when not being paid.

Scott died this past weekend while climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro during his extended vacation and world tour with his wife Chelsea (I don't have details yet). I never knew him personally, only through being Facebook friends online. He was truly someone I thought of as invincible--larger than life. Such an inspiring guy and such a beautiful soul. His light will undoubtedly continue to shine on through his legacy and the lives he touched along the way. Please keep his wife in your thoughts and prayers.

I just found this TEDxTalk today and I got so pumped! I just knew in my mind that this young man had a book released, so I began to Google it. After a couple of seconds of research, I realized that this man passed away while hiking mountains making his way around the world. I just broke down and cried. What a wonderful soul to give us this short, yet powerful message before ascending. I believe he fulfilled what he was meant to do in this life and that he'll be back.

Out of total shock and sadness and utter empathy for Scott's wife Chelsea and his family, I have come to realise this: If there is anything we can do to make Scott’s totally unfair sudden passing not a complete tragedy to mankind it is to take what he started and make it into something even more massive. Because I’m sure that’s what he would have done if he was still here. So let’s all do (more of) what we love and let’s not waste our potential. Let’s inspire more and more people around us to do the same and by that help make the world the much better place it can be. And let’s take his and Chelsea’s example and live life to the fullest. Let’s make the most of the now and enjoy the little things no matter how busy we may be. Let’s always be brave enough to be the best versions of ourselves and thereby giving our loved ones and beautiful planet what they deserve. Let’s live following the excellent example Scott set. Let’s all live our legend and make Scott proud.

Andros And I suppose to conquer Fat, you must first become Fat. Or was it fear? The original question was What About Those Who Feel No Passion? Who are not inspired by anyone or anything. Who do not know this thrill or joy of which you speak. Who are no more interested in any one thing than any other one thing. The question stands..

Very informative. I ask myself everyday what am I afraid of? What is stopping me from doing something that I love. I can strongly agree with you when you mentioned surrounding yourself with positive individuals who share the same passions as you because you can learn from them and it will only help you expand your dreams.

I... really needed this. Taking a break from school to find some answers is what I thought (and still think) I need. But overly concerned parents and friends are making it difficult to do anything other than find a job to take place of school. So it was wonderfully motivating to hear this. Thanks, Scott:)

@Aviwe Mahanjana Thank you for taking the time to comment. I didn't get certified as a PT. My dream career as a linguist (fluent in 6 languages) found me! I have helped several people get into better physical condition, because I care, their progress was payment enough, for me. Most people would rather pop pills than do the work to get off the meds. That's their prerogative. Also, with the rise of scammers, I started helping others to see the truth of who they are dealing with. People sometimes contact me, online for help, when a loved one is being asked by a scammer to send money. I love that "aha" moment when the target finally gets it.

This was an AMAZING talk. People say it's fluff because it's more of a philosophy, purpose is not something that can be answered for you. Like he said it's not about doing something crazy, it's about making life something that matters to YOU. Surrounding yourself with people that inspire YOU. It's going to look different for each person. Really think about the fact that life can be gone without warning at any second, just like this young man. Each second you have, fill it with something that feeds your soul. He did live out HIS dream- he wanted to help people discover their passion and purpose. Understandably, not everyone can switch their environment or quit their day job...I don't think that was the point. For example, if your family means everything to you, supporting them is doing something that matters to you. That's the point. Also, it's never too late to begin projects or to change your lifestyle- even if it's just in small ways. I mean no one has life "figured out", we all just have to try our hardest to make it work for ourselves.

Thank you Scott! You came through this video at the right time in my life. You moved on too quickly, but I guess you learned what you came here to learn and lived it! And then it was time for you to move on. But before moving on you taught us and showed us the lesson you learnt, practically, by living it. Your moving on just drove home the point - Life is too short and unpredictable. And that we need to follow the way our heart tells us to. Then we can leave this planet without any regrets. God Bless You! RIP.

The ultimate problem for motivation is listening to the wrong voice in your head. The mastery of ones emotions leads to freedom and motivation to achieve. Learning to recognise the ego is primarily the way to achieve all Scott speaks on with out the strategies required to motivate oneself and find true purpose. When you recognize and know who you really are motivation and purpose comes naturally. It is not something you need to work at. Blessings.

That's why I'm surrounded by only affiliate marketers on my Facebook because I want to excel in that. I am constantly learning about myself as well. As far as impossible, I'm training for a bodybuilding competition in October and recording my own music. I'm going hard starting tomorrow, doing a walk, a combination of walk/run and then a whole hour of running after that. So, 3 hours of working out.

This is the best TED talk I have ever seen. Its what I am ALL about. I think a majority of us have our passions and find this environment, but whether or not we dive in head first really gauges that rate at which we can challenge our own impossibilities. I know personally I have gotten a taste for what it feels like to be the least qualified in a room or less athletic on a team. It puts you in a position where you're willing to feel humility, to learn and grow. These situations let you set your bar on reality much higher than if you had placed your self in a more comfortable situation. Its hard to continually pursue that environment that forces you to expand your realm of possibilities, but that's why it is so rewarding.

Scott's speech mentions very good point. Most people work without any meaning. Having sense of meaning brings you different point from where you are. In the same time meaninglessness comes with dissatisfaction. Live Your Legend is very courageous slogan. As a university student, I hope I can find the ideal career path for me.

After listening to this lecture, I decided to become an expert on myself. People are divided into 20 percent of people who change the world with passion, and 80 percent of people who just live in desperation. I think only those who are experts about themselves and those who understand themselves can find the life they want and live passionately. 'What kind of person am I?' I kept asking this question during the lecture. There is a goal for me. And I am working hard toward this goal. However, I don't know if I really like this goal 100 percent. Because I don't know who I am completely. The most grateful thing about this video is that it taught me the importance of having my own time. My own time taught me how to find a way to enjoy myself, and taught me about my special strengths, my values, and the importance of experiences. From now on, I will test my limitations by doing things that seem impossible, and I will challenge whatever I want to do. I will also live my life passionately checking what I can or cannot do. My life is only mine, and only I can change it. This lecture made me regret my previous negative life with limitations. Come to think of it, I wonder why I set limits on my future in the past. The pressure and gloom that I didn't know was blocking my way. My life is long and I still have a lot of time left. Now I want to say, 'There's nothing I can't do.' I feel like the dark clouds in my head have gone through and become a clear, blue sky.

I find this video very inspiring and motivational. I work for management at a company and the pay is fair but i am very unhappy doing what i do. It makes it hard to quit a job without having the money coming in weekly. My shift is 3rd which is horrible and the stress in this job is incredible. I cant take it anymore and just about everyday i keep applyin for other jobs that i could like doing and with good pay. No luck so far but im at the point i cant take my current job anymore its too stressful. I dont know what else to do. I dont know what other options i could go to...if anybody happens to be able to help or suggestions for me, it will all be appreciated. Thanks.

+Miguel López Santos i was in the same situation Miguel. A sales job where the pressure is relentless. I stressed about everything and the more stress I felt the worse my performance became. I would be so exhausted coming home that all I wanted to do was watch tv and sleep and drink at the weekends. Then I broke it down for myself and started asking myself questions 1. do i enjoy meeting people and the sales interaction - actually the answer is yes , true there are some not so nice people out there but most are at least ok and some are very nice and the job can be fun 2. was i doing my best at the job - the =honest answer here was no i was probably giving 70 per cent and achieving middle results 3. was my boss horibble - actually no he wasnt but he was under pressure to achieve results too 4. could i do better - yes I could make more phone callls, I could procrastinate less, I could prepare my sales leads better and be more organised and know exactly what i would be doing on a day to day basis - in short i could take control and once I realised this and put it into practice the stress began to dissolve to very normal levels and my figures and commission improved. I was controlling the things I could control and giving it my best and while I feel I could be happier doing something else at least I wasnt going home with that horrible knot of tension in my stomach. take control of everything that is in your power to control and you the stress will dissolve

So glad I'm enrolling my son into Steiner education next year as they focus the majority on the child's creativity, individuality and passionate strengths... This is a big hole in the school system. I remember having a meeting with a career advisor in yr 8 which was a 5 min talk with a class full. I don't know how they think that will set students on the right career path. That day actually led my life astray for 10 years!!!! until I had the maturity and confidence to reassess my life and career choice to figure it out myself... Defiantly need to create more basis on advising kids to make a good choice..

God bless and Godspeed Scott. loved your Ted Talk so much that I recommended it to everyone I knew that had the life, purpose, meaning questions burning in them. A friend that I shared this video with texted me the news and he found out because he was following your journey. It occurred to me that you made a dent in the universe; I discover your message then tell others, then they follow and tell others ..... your message is more impactful than ever, live your legend, or as another legend Wayne Dyer (who coincidentally passed this month) said, "don't die with your music still in you." The moral of the story is success in life isn't measured by how many days we are on this planet, it is measured by how we live every day. Let's honor Scott by being as authentic as we can be, living fearlessly.

Hi Ze: Please help me understand how your comment adds to the discussion. If you think it's fluff, that's ok but communicating effectively with others means not offering one's opinion "nothing more" as fact. It closes our minds to the possibility not only of what might be but also what insights others might have that will benefit us. If you can help me understand the value your comment added, I would be interested in further discussion. Thanks

I think you can find it even without knowing that you are looking for it, its more natural way. But to let that happen you have to learn to step out of routines, stop, open your mind and listen to your intuition in the back of your head whispering. Do what you enjoy doing, explore staff which fascinates you, stop planning your life and make use of everyday opportunities, do unexpected decisions, become a yesman sometimes and don't be afraid of failing, because failure is there to show you the right direction.

But what better way to go that knowing you made your great work come true, to help others. In that way he is not truly gone part of him lives, his legacy lives. RIP my friend.

Right after I finished watching this vdo, I went straight to the website, subscribed, confirmed, downloaded, and started filling out the 27-question form... My tears started to drop when I reached Question 9 or 10..... they were definitely tears of ecstasy... something I really cannot even explain to myself. I know I broke the rule of not connecting to the internet but I just can't wait. I just want to go and THANK YOU and HUG YOU Scott for doing this for us, at least for me. I will continue till the end of 27 questions with my open mind. The questions (and the concentration I put in) together has already made something phenomenal in my heart and my mind. Thank you. Thank you indeed.

I really liked Scott's presentation. I liked the "find your strengths" and "what are you really good at" parts. I'm 66. I think there's also a part that says do what other people won't do and figure out why you are doing what you do. I finally figured out what I was good at near 40. All my experiences helped me get there. 5 years ago we went into our own business and we are enjoying life and having an impact. I believe life is about growth and having the strength to get better every day although not necessarily living the dream. I'm sad that Scott's gone. His presentation lives on and will help many people find thier way in a confusing world.

Despite this man died at a young age, he probably lived a more fullfiling and intense life that most people who live long to 80 years.

very inspiring video and i agree with your advice! thanks for sharing :) many of the negative comments on here prove why most people hate their work... i think it's fear. fear of letting go of a stable job or fear of not finding a stable job. but once people let go of fear and the cookie cutter life they've been taught to live, they will feel happy and at peace with their life!

Hi Buddy Scott, I like your "3 Step Passion Framework" 1. Becoming a self expert 2. Find out what our unique strengths are. 3. Surrounding ourselves with passionate people. All these 3 steps are very true & are indeed tested and proven by legends. Thanks its been very helpful. Critics are always good, if we can allow it to build us up. However for the critics out there, he/ she must not forget to understand the Time & Environmental context in which the message was spoken to the audience. I think Scott Dinsmore gave a excellent speech on "How to find and do work you love". Keep it going Bro.........all the best.

This is a great TED talk, year ago I stumbled upon this guy and the "Year you get your dream job" seminar. I can't be more thankful for Scott Dinsmore & Ryan Niessen for changing my career and my life in general! Seminar was little pricey but well worth it!

I'm glad to have come across this video at only fifteen when I still have plenty of time to explore what it is that I want to pursue in life. I believe this is more helpful for younger people who don't yet have all the responsibility of bill paying and trying to survive on their own. Though a person of any age can watch the video and take from it what they will, a lot of working adults just aren't in the position to take his advise :/

I burst out in tears the moment you said they set him down in the wheel chair. I had thrown my hands up in a victory before you even said it. Thank you. It's powerful to match that connection via computer.

I read his blog 1 hour ago and it captivated me and the only thing that came up to my mind is how to thank him back I mean he offered so much in just a blog what about the other work he participated, I can't believe he's gone, what a venerable man.

Great talk. I'm so sorry this guy was involved in an untimely accident that took his life. He was a good soul best I can tell. He seemed to embrace good life concepts. My condolences to his wife and family. The love for someone who wants you requires friendship. The love for someone who needs you requires duty. The love for someone who opposes you requires compassion. These loves working dynamically together with cautious consideration create robust community. Allied Fathers Community Unions (AFCU) is created to foster better community.

On the last day of 2019, I watch this video because I need new ideas to determine my college major again. The speaker spoke a bit too fast but the content and the enthusiasm were great. I think this video is useful. Unfortunately, I later realized that he was passed away because of falling in a mountain. I hope he rested in peace and his video like this will be remembered!

Thats how life works, don't believe the You Can Make It bullsht.

You guys honestly I find my purpose in life! I been through a lot as a child! I was abuse and seen violence at a early age! Been around drugs as long as I can remember in and out of jail after high school until I was sitting in a pod one day and I had to make a conisous effort to change my life around but through all that bullshit! It made me a stronger person and I guess I woke up and I realized that I was put through trials to make me stronger as a person! I realize I was put here to help people in there journey of life! and tell my story! Because everything I had to go through! So I guess what I'm saying is that I work a 9 to 5 40hrs a week or more to support my family and I'm fine with that! I guess happiness and success is how u define it as! Not what everybody else thinks!

your experience makes you a stronger person yes.. so you should try to help other people avoid the same fate.. perhaps looking at a degree program so you can work in a drug rehab program or stuff like that

I listened to this Ted talk for the first time last year as motivation whenever I worked in a warehouse as a seasonal material handler. I was hopeless and needed some type of escape from the work I was doing. This talk inspired me to never settle in a life that doesn't bring me fulfillment and happiness, and I've watched it easily over 10 times since that day. I'm sorry to hear that this man has lost his life, since he helped spark such a desire for better in mine. I hope his family and wife can find peace. Rest easy, and thank you for everything.
