What's Your Big Lie? | Jordan Axani | TEDxStMaryCSSchool

vor 2 Jahren

Do you know who lies to you the most everyday? Is it parents, friends, employers or the government? is you. Speaker Jordan Anaxi talks about how the lies we tell ourselves hold us back from the ultimate truths of who we are and stop us from finding true peace and happiness.

Jordan Axani is a social researcher that helps employees and students share their unspoken fears, struggles and hopes with their peers – driving performance, engagement and happiness at work and school. He calls this building “cultures of belonging.” On-stage, Jordan helps people take off the “masks” they wear around others, leading them to accept themselves as they are, and enabling unprecedented peer support around the idea of living authentically.
However, in late 2014 everything changed. On a dare, Jordan posted a message online, offering anyone who shared the same name as his previous girlfriend a leftover ticket for a trip around the world him. The post earned a shocking four-billion media impressions, and made Jordan one of the biggest social media sensations, ever.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
