Influence is the potential found in everybody and we have the ability to inspire people or create a change in things that are happening around us. However, we often fail to realise that influence still happens even through the smallest things we don’t intend to do.

At NYLD we’re letting you stand on the definitive line of influence. The line between the groundbreaking and the apathetic. The power of influence has always been in your hands – dormant, untapped – but which side will your legacy be found?

TOPICS FOR MASS TALKS

•  START RIGHT, FINISH WELL

Freshman year can be unnerving, whether you are in secondary school or a tertiary institute. A new environment, new relationships, new levels of independent decision making, and new challenges to surmount. This talk sheds light on the different changes one may experience as a freshman, and explores principles that help a young person start right to finish well.

•  A LIFE MEASURED BY LIKES: THE ANTI-SOCIAL TRUTH ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA

A recent study revealed that 36% of millennials post travel photos to make their trip look better than it really is, and 65% of them do so with the intent to make others envy them. In a digital age where “likes” seem to matter, this talk explores how we can be self-aware of our own emotional responses towards our social media consumption, and avoid falling into a trap of having our life (and worth) measured by likes.

•  FUTURE PACING: ONE STEP AT A TIME

This is the all important either “you-make-it or you-break-it” year for graduating students. When life doesn’t go according to plan, students can lose sight of what they are striving for, even shrugging off their responsibilities and ultimately blaming others for their current predicament. This talk focuses on how we can take personal responsibility for our choices and actions and regain a sense of control over their lives.

•  HOW BABIES WALK, AND WHY SOME STOP 

Humans are born with a resilient growth mindset. That’s why babies keep standing up each time they fall. In this talk, we explore how each of us have the innate ability to grow, and learn about the conditions that cause us to lose the growth mindset. We help the audience identify fixed/growth mindset voices in their minds, and share some strategies to reinforce their natural growth mindset.
