0:36So I get off the plane, and I come to TED. And I think, jeez, I’m in the middle of a room of successful people! So why don’t I ask them what helped them succeed, and pass it on to kids? So here we are, seven years, 500 interviews later, and I’m going to tell you what really leads to success and makes TEDsters tick.
0:56And the first thing is passion. Freeman Thomas says, “I’m driven by my passion.” TEDsters do it for love; they don’t do it for money.
1:04Carol Coletta says, “I would pay someone to do what I do.” And the interesting thing is: if you do it for love, the money comes anyway.
1:11Work! Rupert Murdoch said to me, “It’s all hard work. Nothing comes easily. But I have a lot of fun.” Did he say fun? Rupert? Yes!
1:22TEDsters do have fun working. And they work hard. I figured, they’re not workaholics. They’re workafrolics.
1:31Alex Garden says, “To be successful, put your nose down in something and get damn good at it.”There’s no magic; it’s practice, practice, practice.
1:39And it’s focus. Norman Jewison said to me, “I think it all has to do with focusing yourself on one thing.”
1:45And push! David Gallo says, “Push yourself. Physically, mentally, you’ve got to push, push, push.” You’ve got to push through shyness and self-doubt.
1:54Goldie Hawn says, “I always had self-doubts. I wasn’t good enough; I wasn’t smart enough. I didn’t think I’d make it.”
2:01Now it’s not always easy to push yourself, and that’s why they invented mothers.
2:06(Applause) Frank Gehry said to me, “My mother pushed me.”
2:13Serve! Sherwin Nuland says, “It was a privilege to serve as a doctor.”
2:19A lot of kids want to be millionaires. The first thing I say is: “OK, well you can’t serve yourself; you’ve got to serve others something of value. Because that’s the way people really get rich.”
2:30Ideas! TEDster Bill Gates says, “I had an idea: founding the first micro-computer software company.” I’d say it was a pretty good idea. And there’s no magic to creativity in coming up with ideas — it’s just doing some very simple things. And I give lots of evidence.
2:46Persist! Joe Kraus says, “Persistence is the number one reason for our success.” You’ve got to persist through failure. You’ve got to persist through crap! Which of course means “Criticism, Rejection, Assholes and Pressure.”
3:01So, the answer to this question is simple: Pay 4,000 bucks and come to TED.
3:08Or failing that, do the eight things — and trust me, these are the big eight things that lead to success.
3:14Thank you TEDsters for all your interviews!
See you! MARITE
