In a world full of distractions and temptations, and with brains that are vulnerable to external influences, anyone can sleepwalk their way into the hedonism trap. This is not a confession; this is the story of how Tom sleepwalked his way into the trap and how he then escaped the trap, creating a life of purpose, meaning, and fulfillment. Tom is a Transformation Mentor and the founder of 3 Stewardships Ltd. The mission of 3 Stewardships is to empower individuals across the globe on their unique transformation journeys, so that they are ready and able to create and enjoy lives of purpose, meaning, and fulfillment. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
