Your Personality

Everybody has a different personality and history. Some people are very good at getting work done and some aren’t, some people love to go to parties and some don’t, some people are always happy and positive and some people aren’t. There are so many different personalities, but why? Why is it that although everyone is made the same way, everyone is so different from each other? When you stop and think about, it starts to make sense. This blog post is about what makes personalities and what you can do to give yourself the best traits.

When you were first born, you didn’t know how to do much of anything (besides cry). When you were first born you didn’t have much of a personality yet, you still had to build it. Personalities are built on choices and decisions. When you are an infant, you hadn’t made almost any choices, and therefore hadn’t built your personality. As you got older you were forced to make more and more decisions, building your personality more and more. Every decision you have made and will make will slightly change your personality. If you make many different decisions then you will become a very different person. Did you know that many famous actors and movie stars were once afraid of being on a stage or being filmed, but once they started making decisions to act and film even when they were scared, they built personality traits that allowed them to act and film themselves with no fear?

Every choice you make can change you completely. With the ability to change yourself so easily though, you must be careful. When you make a bad decision it can affect your personality badly. One way to think of it is a tree. When you are an infant, you are at the bottom of the tree, but once you make your first decisions, you branch off onto one of the branches. Which branch you go to is based on what decision you make. After that first branch, there are more branches that branch out of the branch you are on. You are forced to make another decision and go to one on those branches. You keep doing this until you made it to the end, the top of the tree, a leaf. As you can see, the first decisions you make, are the most important ones because they change the rest of your decisions.

Because of all of these things, you need to make good decisions. Not only do you need to make good decisions, but you need to make them now. I want you to sign up for something that you are afraid of doing. Do something that will make you a better person. Build better work ethics, become more fit. Why is it that we only tell our selves to do these things on new years or birthdays? You should be telling yourself these things every single day. So go and become a better person! Live the best life possible! Good Luck!

You Are Lucky

Sometimes, when I am upset, I will remember how lucky I am. I don’t know if you noticed this but, you and I are extremely lucky. Everything is a result of another thing. The life you have today is because of many things that happened in the past, and many lucky things that happened. Just think about your planet. There is thought to be an infinite number of planets, but almost none of them are able to hold life. Astronomers have been studying planets for centuries. Astronomers have found millions of planets and yet out of all of those planets, only one of them can hold life, earth. When you think of it that way, do you realize how lucky you are to be on this planet?

Another way you can look at it is who you are. A long time ago, for a while, man didn’t exist. What are the chances that we were created? There is a ton of species that came to life long ago, but we are very lucky to be one of those species. Another thing to think about is what your life would be like if you were born as a different species. We hunt and eat many animals. What are the chances that of all the different species in the world, you were born as the smartest and most dominant species today? If you were born as an animal you might already be dead!

The last way that I think about it is when I was born. In the past, there was war and conflict, racism and sexism. In the not far future, it is said that we will have to go to a different planet. What happens when we move to a different planet? The same thing that happened here. Whenever new land was discovered, there were years worth of war and violence and fighting over the land. I predict that when we move to a new planet, we will have war and violence again. The only way that you wouldn’t have to live through all of this chaos would be if you were a human that is alive now. We are all very lucky to be born at this time and in this form, be thankful for that.

The World Is Changing.

The world is always changing and if it is a good thing or a bad thing. As time goes by, the world changes. The world changes in many ways and for many reasons. Often whenever a new thing becomes popular, the world changes. For example, before the internet, many malls and shops were very popular and got lots of money, but once the internet was introduced the attention and money slowly shifted to online shops like Amazon and eBay. As the world changes, people try to adjust to the change. People try to learn what the new formula for success is and what is now popular. Because of these changes in the world, there are always new things, experiences, and chances. When the world changes, people who were once poor and struggling in life, can have a chance to change and find a new way to live. For most people, when the world changes, it is a good thing, an exciting thing.

The only problem is that to some people, change is not a good thing at all. Many people spend lots of time, finding the formula for success and experiencing things that they want to show others, but when the world changes, they think that all those things are replaced with new things, that all that work in finding the formula and learning how to world works is gone. Change is somewhat like a reset button, people who are failing can try again, but people who are succeeding must restart. People who are failing can now become many new things like online advertisers and even YouTubers, people who make videos and post them online for a living. People who are succeeding must learn to shift their strategies to adjust to the new world. The thing that people get wrong is that nobody really must restart. Many people think that when the world changes they must restart everything but really, they just need to change a couple of things.

Change is an exciting thing and a good thing for many people. Change can give people new chances and new experiences. Change is a good thing, we just need to embrace it, and adapt to what it does.

Personal Lies

Quick answer these questions! How fit are you? How much money do you make? Are you good at your jog? Do you like your job? Now, think back on those questions. Did you lie to any of them?

Your brain has to chose who to believe, but above all people it chooses to believe you. Your brain will believe you more than it will believe its self. That is why you mustn’t lie to yourself no matter what.

Did you know that if you say the same thing over and over, you will believe it. If you have the best day ever, but say it was the worst day ever, you might believe it. If you say that you are the worst,Ā  you might believe it. If you say that you don’t need to work because you are so good at what you do, you might believe it. The point is that the things we say, can change the way we think. Words and thoughts are incredibly powerful and can change your life. Some people believe in complete positive thinking, while others believe in only hatred. What you think, shapes your personality.

The most common lie that people tell themselves is that they don’t have to work. People tell themselves that it will get done its self, you’ll get it done later, or that you already did it. Some people tell themselves that they are already doing it when they’re not. For a long time, I told myself that I am getting work done every day, all day and that it the way it should be, but the truth is, that isn’t true. Eventually, I learned that I was lying and made my life much easier. That’s right, after lying for a long time, I forgot that it was a lie and actually believed it!

That is why some author suggest not sharing that you’re making a new book until it is done because if you tell, you may trick your brain into thinking that it is done. Your brain gets the same happy feeling when you tell of your book, as when someone reads it.

The point is that you mustn’t lie because lying can ruin your life. Take my advise, please!

 

The Reward of Failure

What do you think when you see a professional or world champion. What do you think when you see a rich or famous person? Do you think about how lucky he is, or do you think about how much work he put into becoming who he is? Now a days, people seem to think that success is up to luck and chance. People seem to think that success is not a choice made by you, but a chance made by destiny. The truth is that success is up to you, and you need to chose whether your going to do it or not.

There is a thing called cause and effect, which I’m sure you’ve heard of. Although you might know what cause ad effect is, you need to know what itĀ meansĀ and when it is used. Many of the common answers to what cause and effect is, are things like “cause and effect is when one thing causes another to happen”. Those answers are true, but they don’t mean much to you. To most people that is simply another thing you learn is school or another fun fact, but the truth is that if you want to achieve success, you should learn more about it.

The way I explain it is that cause and effect is when you do work and you get an outcome. Almost nothing is actually up to luck. If you want to achieve success you need to find what work you need to put in. You need to know what to do, and then to actually do it. You need to get off your butt, and get some work done. From now on, when you look at a successful man or woman, you think about how much work they do and how impressive it is that they did it all. Then after looking at someone else, look at yourself and imagine you achieve success. Finally, and most importantly, turn your imagination into you life and become the person you imagined.

It is as easy as one, two, three! All you have to do to achieve success, is work and never give up. Think of life like a huge bike ride. In the beginning, you can’t ride your bike, then you use your training wheels, who resemble your parents when you are a child, next you take them off and try to bike all by yourself. The thing is that you are going to crash though! You are going to want to give up, but must chose not to. This is talked over in “Courage”, which is another post I made that you should check out.

The main question is, “Why didn’t you give up?”. There is one very good answer to this question. The main reason people don’t give up, is because they don’t want to be a failure. If you are on a soccer team and you are almost never getting to play because you suck at the game, you might go home and practice until you become the world champion! Many successful people say that they desired to work and not give up, because they didn’t want to suck or be losers.

Now however, there are many things blocking people from feeling this way. People now get participation trophies and ceremonies for moving up a single grade! Now they get a pat on the back if they fail! Because of this, people don’t feel like they suck and don’t try to change it. They are told they they did great and are awesome because they arrived to the game. People now get the reward of failure.

People need to be taught that there is a regret in failing. People need to be taught that there is a consequence. People need to be taught not to lose. People need to be taught to practice for a win. People need to be taught to work for a chance of success.

God’s Grass | Second Place

Do you remember my talk about responsibility and how the main thing that everybody wants in life is happiness. If you didn’t, then you should definitely go back a read it, but if you did then sit back and enjoy this post.

Everybody wants to be happy. One of the main ways to become happy is to achieve your goals. Everyone has goals and want to complete them a more then almost anything. You could also call your goals, your dreams. Ether way, goals and dreams are what are on your must do list and are very much wanted to be completed.

What if you don’t complete your goals though? What if you simply can’t do it? It’s simple, if you can’t complete your goals, you have the wrong goals. Although you can’t always control whether you complete your goals, you can control what your goals are.

You might think that your dreams are your dreams, your goals are your goals, and you can’t just change what you want most, and while that is true, there is a difference from wanting something because it’s your dream, and wanting something because of greed. Let’s imagine somebody wants to be an artist. They dream of becoming the number one artist in the world. They want it more then anything. They work and work until he the third best artist in the world according to public reviews. After even more drawing he still can’t become number one and complete his dream. He grows in anger from no completion and failure until he realizes, there is no reason to become the best artist in the world and all he wanted deep down inside was to be a great, famous artist. So, he changed his goals and had already completed it.

You don’t need to be the best. You need to set reasonable goals so that you can complete them and grow happy. Some people even make multiple small goals that way they continue to grow happy.

One way to think of the world, is like a field of grass.When you look at multiple blades of grass, you can see that some blades of grass are taller then others. If you think of the grass as people’s success chart, you can see that some people are successful than others. That doesn’t matter though. Even if you are the smallest blade in the field, you are still real grass, unlike the short fake grass I have in my back yard. You are real, successful, and pure. You may not be the most best, but you are still successful. What is better is that you are always growing, unlike fake grass, you never stop.

Remember to come back next Wednesday! Bye!
