Be a smart loser, not a stupid winner!

Prost To Life

It’s hard to win an argument with a smart person, but it’s damn near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person -Bill Murray

c1edb4fe317ea4a12c9cf6c750aaa61fI have met people who would just not accept the fact that they can ever be wrong, they just keep arguing about something they are not really sure about, because they don’t know they are not sure about it. If you are a person who loves peace and tries to keep your surrounding calm, you take a step, stop arguing with such people, try to explain once, or maybe twice! if the opposite person is too stubborn to listen to you, just stop doing it. I’m sure there will be a time when that person understands he was wrong and for god’s sake, I hope he stops arguing at least from that point of time!

Stupid conversations can just spoil your good mood and the…

Passion as Purpose

Most of us tend to find ourselves in jobs that don’t inspire us nor make us happy. We accept much less than our dreams. Before we know it, we’re so far down a path that doesn’t align nor reflect with who we are or what we had originally desired for our lives.

“Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.”

– Denis Diderot

What is your purpose?”

Crickets.

I find that many people tend to get totally silent when they are confronted with this question.

It makes sense. It’s pretty big question after all.

Most of us tend to find ourselves in jobs that don’t inspire us nor make us happy. We accept much less than our dreams. Before we know it, we’re so far down a path that doesn’t align nor reflect with who we are or what we had originally desired for our lives. And the reason for this is because typically we take what we can get to get by in this crazy world. We ignore passion and purpose in lieu of money and security. Not that the latter aren’t important and necessary, but the key thing to remember is that for most of us, we…

“Master” is defined as a skilled practitioner of a particular art or activity. To be a Master at something in our society will always be highly valued. When an individual brings substantial value to society they are often rewarded financially. Some areas of mastery are rewarded more than others. Professionals in medical, banking and finance and law often have a more direct path to financial reward. That does not mean other areas are not highly valued.

Defining the Purpose of Your Life (2 min read)

You can be really good at what you’re doing, and not only not be passionate about it, but also totally loathe it.

Millionaire's Digest

What is my definition of success?

Your definition is yours, no one else’s, so you don’t need anyone’s approval and you don’t have to alter it to fit into some little “acceptable” box. But you do have to know what your definition of success is or you won’t know what your end goal is or why you’re working for it. If you define success as being able to pay the mortgage and keep the lights on and that’s what motivates you, there’s nothing wrong with that.

How to win giveaways?

I don’t know what’s up but lately there’s a lot of giveaways going on in instagram (at least with the people I follow). I have participated in a lot of giveaways but never once won or close to win anything. Different giveaways have different kinds of rules, which are usually:

  1. Like, comment something based on a question and tag a friend
  2. Like & tag 3 friends
  3. Like, tag and repost

My question is: What’s the criteria to win anyway? Does witty comments do the trick? The funnier the better? Or the ones that express the most gratitude if they win?

I’m asking this because there’s a giveaway that I really really really REALLY want to WIN.

The main highlight of this giveaway is the Silhouette Cameo, a machine that prints and cuts stickers and I find that this came at such a good timing! My friend and I has been planning to start a sticker business by designing, painting/colouring our own stickers for bujo planners or anyone, really. I have also browsed through the Silhouette website and I have got no money to buy such an expensive equipment, especially since we’re just starting out! But when this giveaway appeared,

DON’T YOU THINK THIS IS A SIGN??????

Oh man I REALLY WANT TO WIN THIS. I hope Tyra and Missy Briggs sees this.

Dear Tyra and Missy Briggs,

I’ll be honest. I don’t binge on every post you upload on instagram but I follow you because I saw one of your post in “search” and I really like it and I wished to see more. I have never commented on any of your photo complimenting that they are beautiful or gorgeous simply because I find my comment insignificant to the hundreds and thousands that already have. What I want to say is, if you see this (which I’m desperately hoping you will), I reallly want to win the giveaway so my friend and I can live out our dreams in starting our sticker business. Thank you thank you and thank you again.

Incredibly sincere,
Jamie @mifunarts

Why Don’t We Work Less?

“What, exactly, is the point of earning a paycheck that isn’t a living wage, except to prove that you have a work ethic?”

Longreads

At a recent conference in Detroit, billionaire Jack Ma, founder of the online marketplace Alibaba, told CNBC that, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence, people will soon work less.

“I think in the next 30 years, people only work four hours a day and maybe four days a week,” Ma said. “My grandfather worked 16 hours a day in the farmland and [thought he was] very busy. We work eight hours, five days a week and think we are very busy.”

People have been making this prediction for generations. Economist John Maynard Keynes posited, in an essay published a year after the 1929 Wall Street crash, that his grandchildren would work 15-hour weeks, with five-day weekends. In 2015, NPR caught up with some of his descendants and discovered Keynes — who, according to his grand-nephew died “from working too hard” — was wrong. His grand-nephew reported working over 100 hours…

On what happens after you jump off cliffs and other scary things

….you die.

I can’t recall was it The Last Song or The Vampires Diaries that said: eulogies aren’t for the dead to hear; they’re for comforting the living.

No matter how much pain you think or you’re truly in, there’s no greater pain than losing a person in your life that was supposed to be with you forever. If you love them, you wouldn’t harm yourself. Because the person you’re actually killing isn’t you; it’s them.

The blog I reposted had nothing to do with death but I was just reminded or prompted to write what I wrote because of her blog title.

Hudhurungi

I did a scary thing, a bold thing. But this piece is not about taking the plunge, it’s not about gathering the guts to leave your comfort zone, it is about what you experience and feel immediately after leaving your comfort zone.

I still experience bouts of fear, I still feel jittery and daunted.

This is for my fellow cliff jumpers, are you afraid too, even after the jump? Is it a bit like jumping off a cliff into the ocean and being submerged under the waves? You know that you will come up and swim, eventually, but for now the force of your jump has you under the rolling waves.

Well this is me, this is me saying that I am still scared, and if you are too, blink twice. We are learning together, are we not?

I am still daunted, still trembling in hope and fear, still learning…
