Lisa Bu - How Books Can Open Your Mind

I'm sharing this TED talk because of the last few sentences spoken by Lisa Bu. To paraphrase, she says that the purpose of aspirational dreams, whether they come true or not, are to reveal what makes us happy and to help us find the source of what can bring purpose to our lives. I find this thought provoking observation to contain some truth because it means people can analyze these dreams in order to understand why they aspire in certain directions. This type of aspiration based analysis should reveal our inner standards for happiness and purpose.
