WATCH: 5 Wildly Viral TED Talks That Will Show You The Power Of Courage

Posted: Updated:

We've pulled together five of the most-watched TED talks from this year as voted by you, our loyal TEDWeekends audience. On the surface, they seem so different. But each speaker is an outsider spreading a common idea -- the best way to find courage in this world is to embrace your own, unique voice.

And for an added bonus, we've also included one new, never-before-featured talk that speaks to that same theme. Check out the speakers you haven't seen or revisit your old favorites and enjoy the chance to see the world through someone else's eyes for an afternoon.

Ash Beckham: What happened when a kid asked her, 'are you a boy or a girl?'

iO Tillett Wright: Gay or straight? After watching this, it won't seem so simple

Sue Austin: It starts with a woman in a wheelchair. By the end, you won't see her the same way
