Why I Hate The Word “Can’t” | Jeph Maystruck | TEDxRPLCentralLibrary

Written by rts007

When’s the last time you tried something for the first time? Or learned something new? Have you struggled to understand something lately? In life, it’s often easier to say a certain couple of words that can do so much harm rather than to try something new. In his talk, Jeph explores the greatest thing holding you back from accomplishing whatever you want in life, the little voice inside your head saying “I can’t.”

Jeph has an utter disregard for the status quo, for the past 9 years he has been disrupting the marketing industry in Canada. He gives keynotes regularly on a variety of topics, hands out lottery tickets daily, and runs a marketing company out of Regina called Strategy Lab. Jeph has had the pleasure of working with organizations such as Carmichael Outreach, the Regina Police Service, Gentle Teaching International, and teaches social media marketing at the University of Regina. Other than marketing, his real passion is coaching volleyball. He cofounded “Big Idea Camp” (a Summer Entrepreneurship camp for highschool students), doesn’t believe in cutlery organizers, and has inspiringly funny business cards.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
