About Mihail

Bio

My personal motto is „I am a simple man. I live an extraordinary life.”. The vision that inspires me to constantly innovate in the field of personal development and social entrepreneurship is: „A world of self aware and responsible people – for themselves and for the world they live in.”

I founded the biggest online community promoting good news about and from Romania (LumeBuna.ro) back in 2008 and ever since the project promoted thousands of causes, projects, initiatives and Romanians that do make a difference in the world.

Since 2002 I am a trainer and held trainings in Romania, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Italy and Croatia, for organisations like Nestle, Junior Achievement, British Council and AIESEC. Since 2007 I am holding life coaching sessions too, in Romania and Belgium.

I published two books on personal development: „Eu Cine Sunt?” (Who am I?) and „Acum*” (Now*).

In 2009 I founded a project called WhichWay – Self Leadership support groups, that had as aim to promote continuous personal development. After two years it became the strongest group coaching program from Romania, that now has its own school for group coaching facilitators.

Having passion in your work is trainable. Being deeply passionate and driven is not. How does one pursue a deep desire to be doing more?
Great topic and would be great if more and more people would consider thinking at this and then, if course, living their lives this way. In a recent TEDx talk I was saying that we can build our own world/lives if we start from the right point - ourselves. Normally society tells us what to do, what to learn, who to be. We can start the other way around: we can decide what are Values are, what our Dreams are, what Skills do we need to acquire to achieve our Dreams, and last but not least who are the people we want to live surrounded by. Some insights and visuals, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8JNZ3CpC_U

Have a way to measure the impact of TED for the audience.
Great question. Thanks! I gave an example below, but that is not real...is just a possible scenario (After watching http://www.ted.com/talks/sir_ken_robinson_bring_on_the_revolution.html I decided to look for an organisation in my city/country that is working on such project. Let's say I found one and now I am volunteering / working for them to develop this alternative educational system. It would be cool to have a section at each video where people could leave their specific comments on "The impact of this TED video in my life / society."). One story: At the end of 2008 on TED I found the first resource that gave me a structure to resonate with for the New Year's resolution (is in Romanian http://www.musat.com.ro/2008/12/29/un-an-trece-altul-vine/) - I was inspired by this video: http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_st_john_s_8_secrets_of_success.html. Starting from the point I made so crucial changes in my life. Now, TED's mission (spreading ideas) is detailed as follows: "We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we're building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other." I believe that it would be much easier to say "change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world." if a measurement would be attached to each TED event and TED video. Of course, it might take a while to find the best way to measure this, but once launched I am sure that people would even start to ask themselves this question, question that maybe they were not thinking about before seeing it.

I was rather thinking that each person could have a way to maintain a self monitoring process...on a predefined TED page. e.g.: After watching http://www.ted.com/talks/sir_ken_robinson_bring_on_the_revolution.html I decided to look for an organisation in my city/country that is working on such project. Let's say I found one and now I am volunteering / working for them to develop this alternative educational system.

What have you learnt from watching TEDTalks?
Yes, I believe this is the case for me too. TED showed me that is possible to live up my dreams. TED gave me and still gives me inspiration. Speaking about facts, at the end of 2009 I used this speech http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_st_john_s_8_secrets_of_success.html as a tool to evaluate my year and plan the year ahead. Thanks for this great topic!
