Become Your Teacher

“Appreciate the big things, but remember what they are made out of…”

                                                                                                     -Me?

Sometimes we forgot the fragility of this world and the concepts which hold it together in our eyes. With one flick of a hand or the simple truth told, the world as we know it would collapse. Something which we rely on to keep our schedules intact can break apart with such simple means, how do we keep on loving the world around us, instead of worrying about the possible outcomes?

 

For us to discover the answer, we must understand one simple word – Appreciation

 

I have written about this in the past, but I have a slightly different explanation I would like to divulge to you, my treasured readers. We have all been on the receiving end of more than a few anxiety fueled thoughts. Then, one of two outcomes will occur, we push past our thoughts that hold us back from greatness, or the what if’s become our reality to the point of failure. pushing ourselves is imperative to success and only with constant effort to grow can we become our true selves.

When we think of the outcomes of a situation, there are many ways we can veer off into the darkened pool of our mind. The best way to make sure we do not stary off the path of achievement is to teach ourselves to react positively to challenges. Worry is an integral part of keeping us safe, but at some point, we must take our worry and throw it in the backseat while we let our willpower and need for success take the wheel.

 

The possibilities are endless, make sure you do not forget that there are many ways not just to fail, but to succeed as well.

Blog Tip #2 Future Planning

Tuesday Tip

There are two types of bloggers in this world.

• Inspiration Dependent

• informational Focused

I personally rely on inspiration when I sit down to write a post, or something else that requires creative writing. Although, when I am writing an educational article, I will research then parrot most of the informative aspects of what I am writing about; spicing it up when there is a need for the special touch of a personal emotional view.


Today I have not just one, but two tips/tricks for my fellow bloggers out there.

1: for the ones which rely on inspiration for a post, but have trouble keeping a schedule because of this. I propose writing down small bullet points as you get inspired by your daily life. This way you will not only have something for your brain to build off of, but you won’t have to re-invent the wheel each time you write. (Which I am guilty of)

2: Then, for the people who are forced squeeze your personality into the crevices of cold facts. There is only one thing I have to say, look for aspects of the subject you are writing about which interest you; then use those personally feelings toward those facts and write something fantastical.

Enjoy your week everybody!

Let me know what advice you are looking for and maybe the next Tuesday Tip will feature your request!

Discovery Nurtures Growth

Sunday post for Friday…

Ah, this Friday was a holiday here in Israel so, alas I could not post, but here I am today on this beautiful Sunday ready to inspire.

“Nothing in this world is meaningless… unless we make it so.” -Me?

I would like to unravel the mystery of maturity and discover what causes us to turn into the responsible adults we think we are.

Today I was trying to convince my friend to stay in the post high-school program that he is enrolled in, and not to drop out and go back home. Now there are a lot of factors involved in this discussion, but the overall factor was his wanting to be in a place he felt safe in. Me and him were going back and forth about the concept of being your own person, and making your own safe places by adapting to the outside world. Unfortunately I didn’t make any headway and although he might go home I really hope he can change his mindset enough to realize the importance of adulthood.

What kind of power can cause a person to leave the place of his upbringing and start a life outside of his previous parameters?

There are a good amount of reasons for one to leave his home in search of more, but I would like to talk about the concept of discovery in this post.

The world is a big place and we haven’t even scratched the surface when in comes to 100% discovery. I personally love how much mystery there is in the real world, and that movies and tv shows don’t compare to what we can see without there help of CGI. Just this fact alone has people searching in the deepest caves, tallest mountains, and the most remote of islands. There is no reason to do these things but the hope of discovery and the drive for new experiences.

Everyone has this inside of them, and we can use it to our advantage. When there is something for us to do in our daily lives, all we see is a grey wall of nothingness which ends up being routine, but imagine if we can discover something new just by making dinner, or washing the car?

We can learn so much form the simplest of experiences, and what we learn will help us make the world, a safer place.

Blog Tip #1 Be Responsive

Tuesday Tip

This is the first Tuesday Tip so please let me know if you guys enjoyed it and what I can do to add or subtract from it 🙂

What do you think a performers favorite part of being an artist is?

Their fans and the response they get from them about their art. For bloggers, comments and likes dominate our dopamine levels. When you get that buzz in your pocket, we always want it to be some sort of loving feedback from a devout reader.

They give us so much, and are a big part of the reason why we feel accomplished on a day to day basis. We have to show our compassion to them in a tentative way, by responding to comments and follows, we show our appreciation in the best way possible.

So that is the tip of the week, be responsive and loving to the people who helped you get this far…

Nature of Change

Friday First

 

“Beginnings begin with a thought and continue with action.”

         -Me?

Finally! I have found the time to write on this blog that I love so much for the people that have given me the energy and inspiration to keep writing in the first place. 

environment-2443922_960_720

I have been studying in Israel for the last few weeks, and it has been an experience unlike any other. My day consists of classes and meals, maybe an hour of free time, and a hike from time to time just to get the blood pumping. Beauty is the embodiment of where I live, with mountains in the distance, palm trees, and the views I have on a daily basis really help my creative writing in a big way. The impact my surroundings have had on me is something which I would like to expand on today.

 

Situational Circumstances

Many factors can lead to change in our lives, and these varying changes will hopefully have a positive affect on our lives. Change does not have to mean a total opposite, or different factor then a more familiar one. There can be improvement that we see as change, just as a person can still eat ice cream, but only at the right occasions, and will feel better about his control over his desires.

 

Many of us feel a missing link within our lives and believe we can fill it with more of the same, as long as we keep upping the ante. This is obviously not true, since we know that the definition of insanity is to keep repeating the same actions and expecting different results.

Proof From The Past

Last year I also studied in Israel and if you have read previous posts, you know I loved it. Although, I knew that I did not live up to my full potential, or accomplish all that I wanted to in the place I was last year, mentally and physically. Guess what? I changed my surroundings by applying to a different program and getting new visa paperwork, and all the other processes which I went through to make this switch occur. Of course I had help from my family to make this happen, and that really gave me the power to overcome my weaknesses and push myself to accomplish what I needed to achieve.

 

The change I am seeing on a daily basis is astounding, and I can thank my willpower, along with the proper environment which I put myself in. 

I really missed writing to ya’ll, and reading your incredible thoughts. Peace until next week 🙂

How I Started Down The Way of the Wise

Obviously there was a myriad of factors which resulted in the creation of my blog, but I would like to focus on one point in particular. I was at a point in my life where I wanted to start changing the world, and all I had at my disposal were my thoughts and feelings. Finally, night after night going to sleep feeling unfulfilled, like I could have gave over more of myself to the world, I had an idea. All I needed to do was write my thoughts down in a way that they could be shared with the world. Immediately I thought of the internet, and then right after reading a few blogs, I had made my decision…

What Challenges Give Us

Thursday Thwack

 

“Looking for a way out, is the best way to find one.”

                                                             -Me?

 

We push ourselves everyday to see the results we work so hard for. Day in and day out we work and accomplish an incredible amount. We all have different processes which get us to that point of empowerment, but once we do, it doesn’t matter how, only that it is. The only thing that we are thinking about once we decide to start working on something is the product, and the final stages of perfection.

sports-2282916_960_720

This stage is obviously our end goal, but have we ever started working, and then slowly lost interest? Slowly slowly that feeling of, I would rather not be doing this starts to creep in. At that point is where our goal of a finished product become blurred and unceremonious. Although, this point in time gives us a chance to strengthen our resolve, and not only create something incredible; but also to never give into our more petty desires again.

 

Every challenge is a chance to become even better then we once were!

Believe in this concept, and all of our dreams will come true!

How to Say Thank You

Tuesday Turn-over

“New beginnings, or repeating success?”

                                                -Me?

 

Hello to all of you who are seeking the Way of the Wise; these last few days my posting habits have been a little erratic. This is because I am getting ready to start school again in Israel. I am basically moving to a different country again, so I have a lot to prepare. When I start school again; in about a week, hopefully my writing will get much more scheduled.


Side note – If you ever have an argument or comment on what I am writing about, please comment below 😉 Love to hear your thoughts.

Before I write the Way of the Wise today 🙂 let me just thank all the people out there who have been reading and applying positivity to your lives. it is inspiring to know you people are out there!

thank-you-2490552_960_720


I would like to write about appreciation today and the way we ooze passion about the subject.

 

A dear friend does something incredible for you, for the sole purpose of helping you in a time of need. There are usually two different types of responses to this sort of action.

  • Debt
  • Gratitude

The facts are that depending on your mental state we will feel varying emotions. There are different factors which can influence these reactions, although we are talking about an average, generalized situation, hopefully most of us can relate to.

keyboard-621830_960_720

Debt

Can we absolutely say that a thank you is enough?

I didn’t think so, more often than not, we feel an unmistakable pull towards giving back to the person which did good for us. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great thought which drives our society in the right direction, most of the time. When we as respectable human beings, cannot take something without fulfilling this need to give back, sometimes it is caused by our acceptance that we aren’t good enough to receive and that someone wouldn’t give us without assuming we would give back to them.

 

We usually only see this in people with self-confidence issues, but it can manifest in the form of fear, where the person believes he must give back to keep up a personal image; or through victim-hood, where the person creates a false reality where the person is only giving because they feel pity for one’s self.

 

 We are awesome and accepting gifts/favors is just as important as giving them.

 

Gratitude

This is the most common of all the reactions to kindness, and the most healthy. Just a simple thank you, or I really appreciate it, can go farther then any favor. The kindest emotion we can show is appreciation, just to show our appreciation to other people can do incredible things!

sign-1715890_960_720 (1)

Bottom Line!

We love receiving good intentions, and people love giving their kindness; just make it simple and accept it, it makes everyone feel good, and showing our appreciation for someone else’s actions, will inevitably make you seem like more of an angel in their eyes.

 

Thank you for reading!
