So many people never ask themselves what they want. Maybe it’s because they think they have everything already, or because they’re afraid it’s too late. But if we don’t ask ourselves what we want, there’s no way we’ll ever know if our dreams are possible, or what it would take to achieve them. Until recently, that was my story. I was living an amazing, beautiful life, and I didn’t feel I deserved to even contemplate anything more. This talk is about why I decided to finally ask myself that question, and what happened when I did. Although Rita Wilson is well-known as an actress and film producer, her most recent projects have all been connected to her passion for music. After achieving her dream in 2012 with the critically acclaimed album AM/FM – an intimate, elegant, and beautifully sung collection of classics from the ‘60s and ‘70s – Wilson has been focusing on a new component of her musical career as a songwriter. Recently, she has collaborated with a number of talented and successful songwriters, composing original material featured on her second album, self-titled Rita Wilson. Her new album Halfway to Home (March 2019) has a fuller sound: Southern California rock meets Nashville country, co-produced by Rita Wilson and Nathan Chapman with additional production from Ron Aniello and John Shanks. Many of the songs were co-written with an A-List group of songwriters, including Grammy winner Liz Rose, Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Mozella, Mitch Allan, and Kara DioGuardi. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

I can relate to your speech Rita Wilson. My parents came to Canada from Greece in 1960 to get away from hard time, poverty and war. They risked a lot to make a better life for us. I grew up not needing much. I am grateful to the risks my parents took. They enabled my sisters and myself to have more options and a better childhood and life. The things they did not have, through their hardships and decisions, we were able to to have.

Thank you Rita!! I adore you and I appreciate you sharing your story and the stories of your parents. I AM in the midst of asking mySelf this very question and I feel the magic of my imagination running wild. My husband of 22 years passed away 7 years ago. I have been on a Quest to release the woman I am as separate from him! I feel where I had fear of possibilities, I now have an enormous expansion that is breaking through!!! I am going big for the second chapter of my life! BTW…Mama Mia is my 25 yr old daughter’s happy movie and music. We play it all the time!!! It’s been said to me that I resemble you, so you have a special place in my heart!! xx. Amazing talk!!!!!

Everyone should listen to Rita's speech. I don't always endorse speeches!! I also have been extremely impressed by what my Parents endured. I have passed their suffering and success in 'the New World' to my Children. I so appreciate what our parents did for us. I really like the connection of your Parents and the inspiration of your success. I really liked singing. Maybe I should take some lessons. Thank you for the inspiration.

Love you but there are so many people who work hard and are so incredibly talented but never get the chance to star in a musical. Just getting a phone call because you asked for it is so privileged. So unrealistic for the rest of us.

I like Rita Wilson. But. This advice doesn't apply to people who don't have a TON of privilege.

She's so out of touch. According to her logic and examples, all those people in concentration camps didn't escape because they didn't want to or they didn't know what they wanted? Lady, you're a moron. Luck played a HUGE part in your little success stories.

Knowing what you want is important, but your parents weren't decisive people, they were lucky, like you and like many others.

It just occurred to me that when Tom Hanks’s character in Cast Away was crying out “Wilson!”, he was calling out his wife’s name!

My goodness 💞🌈💖 your such an amazing story teller 🌠👏🌅 I was getting a bath while listening to this& it moved me to the point of joyful tears of realisation. I’ve always been so very musically minded, like you were cannot play an instrument, haven’t full confidence in my singing abilities at all (a rare brain tumour has presented me with numerous issues inc my newly acquired voice) the point is hearing u ask the question “what do u want?” Is stuck in my mind now too. Like u, I’m leaning towards music 💗🙏🙋 Thank you ever so much, you quite possibly have changed my life 👏💐🙏🥰 xxx

I like both Rita and Tom. I’m glad she survived her health scare and I appreciate her over all point of discovering what it is you desire and then going out and seeking it. But this was a second career closely related to one she had spent a lifetime building. A single call got her a part in a broadway play that her loved ones not only encouraged her to take, but forced her to. She has the help of writers, producers, and a troupe of Nashville musicians along the way. There is nothing wrong with her experience, but as a Ted Talk, it just doesn’t inspire. There are people who cut away a lifetime of strings to take a great leap of faith and begin a new journey, working without a safety net. Even if they just manage to climb a few steps, their journey, with everything at stake and the odds against them, is more moving than someone’s ride in an elevator.. I like Rita and I appreciate her willingness to share. I hope I didn’t sound mean because there is nothing cool about that either. There is just a big difference when a talk comes from someone who has walked in another’s shoes, rather than when they are just taking their own off momentarily.
