'The Art of Being Unreasonable' by Amber Rae

Amber Rae explains when we dream, and we have the right to be unreasonable, to pursue our passions, to be unreasonable in the pursuit of adventure.

A few years ago, Amber Rae was living in San Francisco. People told her she had everything she needed to be happy: a secure job in a beautiful city. But something was missing, and she felt stuck. On her first trip to New York, she fell in love with its vibe and energy. “I want to follow my heart to New York,” she decided, “and experience the answer of what’s next for me.” So she quit her job, sold her possessions, and took the journey.

After making this life-changing decision, Amber began collecting stories from people who followed their dreams, too, titling the book, “Change-Makers and Culture-Changers.” In her "TED Talk" lecture, "The Art of Being Unreasonable," she documents five parallels that she discovered in all of these stories:

1. Purpose
2. Nonconformity and self-discovery
3. Adventure
4. Being “naked”
5. Persistence

A pioneer with tremendous optimism and courage, Amber challenges everyone to follow their own passions and see where their paths lead.

“We are the hero of our own story,” she says. “The story is the one that we write.”
