I just nominated myself to be a speaker at the next TED Conference. The Theme is "Truth and Dare." The application asked me to explain how my "Forgive To Win!" talk would fit into that theme. This is what I wrote: The Truth: That survival of the fittest, on a global level, no longer means survival of the physically fittest. It means survival of the spiritually fittest. If we are to survive and thrive we must shift from a mentality of judgment, differences, separation, fear, threat and aggression to a mindset of unity, cooperation, compassion, generosity, forgiveness. We must embrace the concept that we are all in this together, that aggression and war are bandaids. They never heal any wounds. The Dare: People need to dare to challenge their fear that love (acceptance, and forgiveness) can't conquer all. It can. It's not easy. But it will be done. One mind at a time.

true indeed but still survival of the fittest also means survival of those who are mentally stable and keep their emotions in check (well at least try to)..of course keeping your emotions in check may hurt you that's why you should occasionally let go of all your feelings and then compose yourself and keep on going..for example when you are in school, for such moments you can use writers and once everything resolved and you are back on your feet, take the matter in your hands and persevere..best
