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)

The reason why this TED talk has garnered over 20 mn views is that it gives a very strong hope to most of us who despair silently.

I was always better than my classmates in speaking english, but I wasn't well enough to able to speak properly or understand completely. Then one day one thought came up and I've decided to be as better as I can in speaking english. Now, I've been practicing english for almost 1 year. At least 20 minutes a day. That's 20 minutes made me way better english speaker than I was before. When I saw this video I wanted to share my experience. Guys, I watched this video without any subtitle and understood every single words thanks to my 20 minutes efforts a day. I achieved this level without any partner or course. Although I'm still not that good enough and you can find lots of errors I've made in my comment, I know that I'm gonna be better day by day and eventually achieve my goal. Whatever you wanna learn, just believe in yourself and practice at least 20 minutes a day. Good luck.

The major barrier's not intellectual, it's emotional.

That’s weird because it only took 5 minutes for people in the comment sections to suddenly become an expert at something

I really believe in everything he has just said. It is important to avoid procrastination guys. I am telling you this because of my life experience. I moved to Canada when I was 20 years old and my life has changed completely. I was studying computer engineering in my home country and was about to complete my 3rd year when my mother took the decision to move to Canada. It was really difficult at the beginning because of the language and culture. My knowledge about English was probably between 30% and 45%, so I had to invest part of time studying English. I proposed to myself that I had to learn the language at a university level in 1 year, and it worked. I still need improvements, but I feel really proud of myself because I was able to learn the language. After having learned English, I applied to University of Toronto to study Computer Science, and since the semester was going to start on September of the following year, I took that year to study everything about my career. I took my time to study advanced functions, calculus, physics and programming. What do I mean about all of this? You can learn everything you want if you really want to. The crucial part of all of this is to believe that you can do it. I personally do not believe in what the science says about the "SPECIAL KIDS". We all are smart beings that have the same capacities to learn everything we want. You can do it guys if you are willing to take the effort. I hope you have a great day and I wish you all the best ☺️. NEVER GIVE UP.

I knew Agent 47 would invest his time wisely after his Hitman run. I'm glad to see he's doing well.

1. Deconstruct the skill. Decide what you exactly want to do with skill and break the skill, practice the most important skills.

2. Learn enough to correct yourself. Practice just enough to notice when you do mistakes and get on the right path.

3. Remove the distractions. Disable notifications and remove all the distractions.

4. Practice at least 20 hours. Try to do 20 hours of deliberate practice. Stick with it no matter what.

Additional:- The major barrier to skill acquisition isn't an intellectual one, but it's emotional.
