Everybody is a Genius

31 Mar

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid”- Albert Einstein

Everyone has their own talent. Some take longer to find it but everyone does have one. The thing about talents is that you have to use what your good at and enjoy to make your life what you want it to be. Take what you love and do it.

For example I know that I am not good at dancing but I am good at the techniques that come with swimming. If someone was to judge everything I do on my non existing dancing skills I would be a failure but if someone was to judge me on my technique in swimming I would be doing good. The problem with judging is that you usually don’t know the person that you are judging so you don’t know what their talents are. They are geniuses in their talent.

Instead of just looking at a person and making a judgment, get to know them and see what their talent is. Who knows maybe you will have more in common then you think. Maybe the person with surprise you and they really are a genius. Many people with many different talents make up this world that we live in and without them what would this world be like? Life is what you make it so what are you going to do today?

Then Teaches the Lesson

30 Mar

“Life is like a confused teacher… first she gives the test… and then teaches the lesson”- Unknown

You don’t always know what life is going to throw at you and how to deal with it but always remember that you will learn from it. Think about all the lessons you have learned from actually doing it. Would you still know the things you know without those lessons? Let me just tell you, no.

If I wouldn’t have lived with the wrong people in the past how would I know that some people you live with are friends because you live with them and some are true friends. I understood the test but know that I have learned the lesson I have grown to be the person I am today. I know that I have taken the classes that you don’t always get what the teacher is saying then you take the test and the teacher goes over it and its like you are learning it for the first time and understand it.

My challenge is to try to just take the advise and lessons that you learn and use them for your future. Don’t worry about what has happened cause there is no changing it there is just moving on and looking for the future. Don’t let the past be a burden for what the future can bring you. Life is what you make of it so what are you going to do today?

How Do You Treat Others

27 Mar

“You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.”- James D. Miles

Some people only do things for others that can help them in the end. If you only do things for others to get something back you aren’t doing things for the right reasons. You want to help others that you don’t expect anything back from every time you do something for them. I am not saying help others that use you but don’t always expect something in return.

I know that I have had a friend in my past that would always expect me to help him with stuff but would never help me when I needed it. Sometimes people just ignore the fact that someone is use them or don’t even notice until a friend points it out.

You have to do what is right for you but don’t forget to help others. It doesn’t mean that you have to donate money or time. It could be holding a door open for someone or picking up papers that someone has dropped or remembering someone’s name when you pass them in the hall. Sometimes it’s just the little things that mean something to others.

My challenge to you is to help someone and not ask for anything in return. Just do it to do it. Maybe it’s just helping a neighbor or a stranger but just see what you can do to help. Life is what you make of it so what are you going to do today?

Nights with Plenty of Sleep? No Way…

15 Mar

“No one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they had plenty of sleep” –Anonymous

live it up

If you don’t get out there and enjoy the life that you were given you won’t have those stories that life are made up of. You should get to have those times that you look back on and say “WOW that was fun”. The times that you get to tell your children about when they are 30. You want to know that you lived your life to the fullest and had a great time doing it.

I know the quote compares sleep but this also goes with work. You don’t want to work yourself to death because you lose the connections that you have made or could make. You need to have fun in life. You want to have your own stories not just stories that people tell you about the next day at work. Get out there and live for yourself cause you never know what tomorrow is going to bring.

My challenge to you is next time someone invites you to go out Go! Ya you may be tired the next day but that is what coffee is for. You have to have those fun times. I am not saying you have to go out every day of the week but go do the stuff that makes you happy and try new things with new people. Life is what you make of it, so what are you going to do today. 🙂

Forget to Remember

14 Mar

“Sometimes you have to Forget what you want to remember what you deserve” –Anonymous

quotes

I think this quote is most true in relationships that people want to make work. The problem with that is you can’t force relationships to work because sooner or later things will explode. You will either just always be mad at the other person for something that they are doing and wasting your time. You have to do what is right for you and for your future.

I think sometimes people fall into the comfort of having that person there and they forget that they deserve to be happy and feel that they have accomplished what they wanted to do in life too. I know that I am guilty of this too and everyone wants to be loved and have that feeling. The problem with it is if you are only looking at the good in someone you are not looking at them as a whole. You have to be willing to look at every aspect and decide if that is what you want and what you deserve.  Life is all about the choices that you make and you just have to try to make the choices that you deserve instead of settling because it is easier.

My challenge to you is to sit down and write down what you think you deserve to have in your life. Write it all down even the little things. From there look at what you have, does it fit into what you deserve? Life is what you make of it so what are you going to do today.

Worrying

12 Mar

“Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere.” -Anonymous

So true!

This is so true!! You can worry about things you have done or things you haven’t done but in the end it won’t do anything for you now. You have to move on and realize that what is done is done. All you can do is prepare yourself and hope for the best.

Many people worry about job interviews, I am not saying I’m not one of them but the thing about interviews is that they just want to know about you. They are not going to kill you or torture you, even though it feels like it sometimes. They just want to know what you know. Worrying about the interview just tends to make it harder when it actually comes time to go into the interview because you have freaked yourself out. If you just try to look at interview questions and come up with some ideas or things like that you won’t be just rocking back and forth in a chair but moving forward.

The other big thing that people worry about is tests. Well the thing about tests is that as long as you study to the best of your ability you shouldn’t worry. It is not going to help you on the test if you’re worried, take a step and do something about it.  Next time you are worried about something ask yourself why and what can you do to prepare yourself so you aren’t worried. Life is what you make of it, so what are you going to do today?

The Same Test :)

9 Mar

“Life will keep bringing you the same test, over & over again, till you pass it…”

People go through hard times in their life, there is no doubt in that but until you learn from your experiences you will repeat them. It is that simple but sometimes people just don’t see it. I know that I don’t always see that I am repeating choices in my life until my friends and family point them out.

When thinking about where you are you have to think about where you have been and decide if that’s a path that you want to take again. Don’t always assume the worst about a situation but really decide if it is going to be a good thing for you. I know that I have picked the guys that in the end might be the same but I think that we all have the wish that they won’t be.

I know that I have fallen guilty of having the same test over and over again and that’s not a bad thing but eventually you have to do what is best for you and live the life that you want. Don’t let your self settle and work for the goals that you have for yourself which means eventually you will have to pass the test. My challenge for you is to look at your past and present. Is it where you want to be? What tests are you still trying to pass? Life is what you make it, so what are you going to do today?
