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!

Emotion Steps Forward

Monday Munch

“Prepare for the worst, expect the best, know the reality.”

                                                                             -Me?

 

We always want the best possible outcome, it is just natural. For most of us though, what plagues our minds are the less then positive endings which we think are more likely to happen. The fear of being let down is so great, that we actually believe that the world has a negative outcome waiting for us to walk into.

maybe-2084778_960_720

The reasoning? Fear of lurching towards our goal.

 

More times then not, patience and logic bring out the best outcome, but there are instances where we must simply lurch toward the goal we have set for ourselves. An un-explainable action caused by a moment of inspiration is all we need to push ourselves into the next step of our adventure.

 

We can use our emotions to achieve what we need to accomplish, they can go awry, but hopefully we can set ourselves on such a strong path, that nothing will be able to divert our focus…

The War on Life

Sunday Sight 

apocalypse-2459465_960_720

“Responsibility must be earned, not wanted.”

                                                -Me?

 

We all have similar processes to get us into the mode of accomplishment. The place that we just work, work, work, and wait for it, even more, although it feels like only a few minutes have passed, we accomplished days worth of work. I personally love this trance that we go in when there are things that must be done. When we teach ourselves to love the feeling of achievement more then the emptiness of addiction, or euphoria shots like, TV, Food, or other entities which flood our minds with dopamine, creating a sort of tolerance to the goodness.

 

So today we will learn:

-To love the feeling of hard work and accomplishment in order to expel thoughts of instant gratification.

 

First off if this article isn’t factual enough for you, check this article out.
http://splinternews.com/in-your-head-this-is-your-brain-on-love-1793845303/amp

 

Before I go into this I would like to point out that this all boils down into one simple concept. Being stronger then the power of temptation and laziness which sort of team-up to create depression like feelings inside of us. It is a simple battle of willpower which is fought on a daily basis, but gets easier with every victory.

ice-cream-cone-1274894_960_720

Temptation

The feeling creeps up on you like a tailgater driving an electric car, you can feel rationalization slowly slipping away as our past failures feed the monster which eventually controls our very being takes over. This entity bears the sigil of temptation, we feel powerless against such a foe, such an enemy. How to fight this beast, that is the question.

 

Fine, I’ll tell you the closely guarded secret which has been passed through the generations of philosophers and thinkers alike. This overwhelming force of negativity which can so easily cloud our minds, the one with the power we can’t seem to fight; do not worry, I am not going to say that it is us, and we have the power to overcome ourselves, but what I will tell you, is that this entity is given power by someone. Although this person does not want you to fall, but he/she wants you to rise past the challenges that are posed by the power this figure gives to your more negative emotions.

 

This mysterious figure is you and the power these outside monsters have is only given to them by the all powerful one, you.

 

Laziness

The foundation for sadness, and the button for self destruction. The concept of not accepting responsibility for the sole reason of not wanting to, is the epitome of what is wrong with any unhealthy mindset. Logic and reasoning bring our dreams to reality through planning and strategy. By discarding these fundamental parts our lives away, we create room for emotions to go unchecked, and with that, disaster will ensue. Emotions are the greatest weapon man has ever wielded, and without guidance from the mind, we can forget about accomplishing anything we will proud of in our lifetimes.

To Love

I know telling the antagonist he sucks is easy, but this was more then that. I wanted to show everyone in a detailed format, how and why instant gratification will ruin our future, if not our immediate lives. In the days we live in, we can be lazy all day then watch an episode of our favorite TV show and feel happiness. We are encouraged to let a once cast out concept into our lives and corrupt the minds of our families. The only way to battle an accepted evil, is to realize it’s true source of power and cut it off. That is why I pointed out that we give the monsters the power we fear so, and that we are the ones who are powerful enough to show ourselves that we do not need their fake lives; that we can bring about happiness through hard work and love.

overcoming-2127669_960_720

Be happy for the future is upon us, and there is nothing we can do, but enjoy it. 🙂

The Mission

Thursday Third

face-1468274_960_720

“Committing one’s whole life to the service of their dreams will result in their dreams becoming reality.”

                                                                                                             -Me?

 

The way we go about our everyday lives, seems to tell us more about ourselves then any of the extraordinary instances that occur within it. It is very interesting how we let these small actions pass us by without a thought, when all we need is one thought to learn something incredible!

teaching-311356_960_720

The Lesson

The single most important thing we can learn from this world, is that our purpose is what we make it, and if we have a goal, then reaching it requires all of your willpower and motivation to accomplish. There is nothing that can stand in your way, and nothing that has the ability to halt your dreams.

 

As our lives unfurl, there many ways we can let it go, but only one way we can shape it towards. When we dream, we must sleep, as to not hit the world too hard with an unexplained greatness. By dreaming while we walk, while we eat, and while we relax, we are building a world to shape into the path that we plan on heading.

 

When your life is your dream, then what does a measly challenge mean to you?

How can a hiccup in life be more important than what you will accomplish on this earth?

There are no wrongs to right, or mistakes to pave over, there is only what you will accomplish and how you will accomplish it.

target-1747234_960_720

The Mission

Being able to focus on the future is the second step of becoming your goal, right after accepting the fact that you have a mission. A soldier is able to push past normal human boundaries, and will constantly do the impossible. They are able to do this because of the singular fact, that it must be done, there is no cost. Nothing is important, but the mission; and once this is accepted we can accomplish something bigger then ourselves.

 

That my friends, is the key; we can live our life for ourselves, but than we would never be able to accomplish more then ourselves. By living according to what we need, we limit ourselves to the point of only seeing what must be done, and not what can be.

 

Caring is good, being selfish is good, although, do we always care for the right things, and are we selfish for the right reasons?
