His story aims at seeing people happy, but: “Search for happiness close to you first, and in small things. That will not only make you happy, but also more and more successful.”So, with this theory of Banach we can – if we understand it correctly – not only find happiness, but success as well. You could write a book about it. Yet, in Arjan’s eyes, that’s not the ideal topic for a book about him:
“A book about me would not really be all that much about me. it would be much more about the reader. The title? I’m not important, you are!”
Twenty-five-year-old Arjen Banach has already been working for three years as an inspirational trainer/coach in leadership and positive psychology.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFryslân, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFryslân event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
