Jason Womack shares a story of growing up in the shadows. He hid, seeking out the darkness, not wanting to be noticed (that was a good thing for him then). In a talk that challenges the perception that successful people have to take the stage and be in the spotlight, Jason asks us to rethink what success means to each one of us.

Jason Womack is a husband, friend, triathlete and author. In 2012 he wrote “Your Best Just Got Better,” and in 2016 he co-wrote “Get Momentum” with his wife and business partner, Jodi. Together they travel the world speaking and counseling leaders who know it’s time to come out of the corners of darkness; even if it doesn’t mean standing in the spotlight.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
