The Best Ted Talks Under 5 Minutes of All Time

You’ll agree with me when I say that I don’t have time. I know you don’t either. I did not think I would find anything amazing said in less than 5 minutes. It literally took me from 3 minutes to 5 minutes to gain so much knowledge. These were and still are the best Ted talks that are worth listening to.

May we begin . . .


Just imagine 8 secrets of success in 4 minutes. This video is not only educative but also interesting to watch.

Success can be quite difficult to achieve. However, Richard has told us what we need in order to be successful. My favorite of the 8 was persistence. This is the most essential quality of a successful person. Success does not come easy neither is maintaining success. Persist until you achieve your goals.


Try something new for 30 days. In less than 4 minutes, I am sure you will have the urge to try something new in the next 30 days.

We all have times we have been stuck in a rut. I kinda wish I knew this early. As soon as I completed this video I made a decision to take on the 30-day challenge. I will reveal my progress in the November Newsletter. (Please sign up if you haven’t signed up.) Let me know what you’re planning to challenge yourself with for the next 30 days in the comments. What have you always wanted to try?


We are all looking for happiness. Did you know that the less you have the happier you are? What if you have been blessed with a lot?

Now you know what gives you stress. We need to edit our lives. Remove all that is unnecessary. Only get what you need. It is not easy to practice what he says but I believe there is something to learn. The main idea is that we should get only what we need. I sure need a lot of life editing, do you?


Before you watch this video, I want to appreciate you for supporting El Mieles website. As you will see, you are the reason others will visit this website.

All you need is to start. For all the leaders, you need to be courageous enough to lead despite being ridiculed. When you are the first follower, you influence the crowd which means a lot to the leader. Don’t hesitate to support somebody because you help drive somebody’s mission. This is among my best Ted talks.


Simple words, heavy meaning. This is why you should say thank you.

We often underestimate the power of thank you. I personally know the benefits of being appreciated. It has saved me from giving up. All it took was for somebody to say thank you. That is how I learnt to appreciate. This video also hints on good communication. Ask what people need and how they want to be appreciated.


I was shocked when I listened to this video. Who knew they were supposed to keep their goals to themselves?

Your personal biggest goal! It took me a few minutes to get it. Were you aware of the satisfaction that is gained by announcing your goals? Is this the reason why you have not been achieving your goals? From today, we keep our goals to ourselves.


A jack of all trades is a master of none. 

I don’t know how many times I need to be told not to multi task. It seems like it is a disease and I know I am not alone. Do you text as you drive or receive calls while crossing the road or even text as you walk? 


I never leave without giving you a bonus. This one is unique and longer than 5 minutes. All the same, I loved the message in the video and could not help but share it with you. All praise to Tim Urban for this amazing video. It is everything good. The best thing about what he says is that it is relatable. 


I hope you enjoyed the short, motivational and educative videos. It is very rare to find such speeches in less than 5 minutes. You can listen to one daily. Just 5 minutes out of your 24 hour day.
