This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. “ A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.”

“ A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.”
This talk is not about gardening, although going back to nature is what one should do from time to time just to realize that great things happen effortlessly. Wouldn’t it be better to live a fulfilled life rather than constantly competing to be number one by comparing ourselves to others and trying to feel self-confident? Does trying to be somebody in this world, make you anybody, anyway? If you can be anybody, why not be yourself? But, in today’s world, how?
Her name is Oprea Iulia and on the 4th of October in Targu Mures, she would love to share her thoughts about how she stopped wanting to be number one, and started being herself. She founded her first recruitment agency with a business partner in 2008 at the age of 23. With only a vision and zero management skills at start, she and her partner managed to build a profitable small business. With the help of her team of 7 people, she helped over 1500 applicants to improve their lives by finding jobs in a time of crisis in the hotel industry in Austria. “I picture myself in a world where I’m inspired every day by something or someone and I have to say: it’s working. I want to surround myself with people who have a purpose in life and are not afraid to go for it - and they exist, I’m lucky for meeting such people often. I am grateful for being brave enough to go AFTER what I believe in.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
