Sell Your Crap. Pay Your Debt. Do What You Love. Top TED Talks

In this TED Talk, Adam Baker shares an incredible personal journey of how he redefined his sense of "freedom" and liberated himself from his current lifestyle of financial burdens.

For Adam and his family, discovering true freedom meant defying the 'status quo' of how typical Americans perceive success. He sold most of his possessions and restructured his life to minimize debt and start truly enjoying life.

During his compelling story, Adam mentions a powerful quote by Nigel Marsh:
"There are thousands and thousands of people out there leading lives of quiet, screaming desperation, where they work long, hard hours at jobs they hate to enable them to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don't like."

Are you one of these people living under the myth that things and possessions identify success?

Do something about it. Prioritize what makes you happy. It's your life, and you have the power to change it.
