While doing some research around Living a conscious life. I was pleasantly surprised to find Carrie Green had included part of a conversation following the Tedx talk above, with her in North Tea Power in her book.
When I discovered this, I decided well I might as well get a copy for my ever growing library. Today I got my copy…
Finally got @iamcarriegreen's book "She means business" which includes the quote and experience at #TEDxMCR – https://t.co/BW0TgvGlDu

From the chapter – The little voice in your head
A guy called Ian Forrester climbed up to the stage, I handed him £20, the audience applauded and he went and sat down. A few weeks later we met up over a cup of tea and he told me how a brush with death a few years earlier made him make the decision that he was never going to let anything stand in his way. He said, “People are paralyzed by their fear of what might happen, and so they won’t reach out and grab what’s in front them. And that’s pretty much what I did.”
Thank you again Carrie for the quote and everything, I will never forget the moment.
