The Power of TED*

The Empowerment Dynamic
by David Emerald | 152 pages

David Emerald's wonderfully wise fable rocks. In this Note, we'll take a quick look at one of my favorite books as we explore the importance of stepping out of DDT (the Dreaded Drama Triangle) and stepping into TED (The Empowerment Dynamic) as we learn to more consistently live from a Creator's perspective (rather than a Victim's) and learn how to hold the tension between our ideals and our current realities by taking baby steps.

“Your life is a kind of laboratory where you’re constantly experimenting with your own higher knowing, always increasing your capacity to design the life you choose. Human beings must create; it’s hardwired. The question is, are you consciously creating or only sleepwalking through your human life?”

~ David Emerald, Author of The Power of TED*

TED’s your friend.


David Emerald’s simple, powerful fable, The Power of TED*, (featuring his uber-wise character, TED) is a life changing kinda book.

In this overview I’ll introduce you to two (very) different orientations from which we can choose to live: Victim and Creator. One’ll land you in the Dreaded Drama Triangle (DDT) and the other’ll place you squarely where you want to be: in The Empowerment Dynamic (TED).
