According to Saunders, succeeding is a very real danger, “it will take up your whole life, while the big questions go unanswered.” To focus on success will be detrimental to you as a person. There is so much to life that we have only a little bit of time to see. George Saunders summarizes his speech into one sentence perfectly. “According to me, your life is going to be a gradual process of becoming kinder and more loving: Hurry up.
Kama Sutra: How to Revive Relationships in Just One Night Introduction It often happens in the long-lasting relationships that passion calms down and the spark dies out. Children, work, and household chores take a lot of time and effort. Running errands, you may easily forget about your partner and how deep you once fell in love with him/her. The feeling of the first weeks or months is gone and it can’t come back for no reason. Although the charm of novelty has its own expiration date, it doesn’t mean that it’s the end of love.
Keep an eye on the goal and keep moving towards the target. Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone. People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing - that’s why we recommend it daily. The purpose of our life is to add value to the people of this generation and those to follow.
Each event could have been sufficient reasoning for Candide to quit, to lose all faith in humanity and the world at large, yet he persists. Although in writing this Voltaire’s aim was to show this optimism has no eventual fruition, I believe optimism is the only approach one can take when given life’s burdensome adversities. If we take this lesson at face value and conclude that optimism has no benefits to us, we will struggle mightily when faced with any hardship throughout life. Voltaire is partially correct in that potentially not every dark time during our lives is going to be beneficial, but to truly be a failure is to lose hope. Hope and optimism are the only reasons many people throughout history have become successful despite overwhelming odds against them; it is also the
In the “Optimism Bias” TED talk Tali Sharot sheds light on an important theme that we deal with as humans in our daily lives which is Optimism Bias. This theme is translated by Sharot as “our tendency to overestimate our likelihood of experiencing good events in our lives and underestimate our likelihood of experiencing bad events” (Sharot, Optimism Bias). Life is hard. Even if you have a good job and live in a war free country like the US, there are bills to pay, children to rear, aging parents to care for, home repairs, car repairs, and a myriad of deadlines and problems every day. To cope and feel good about ourselves we tend more often than not to irrationally assume glowing futures for us and those we love.
There are people out there who try so dang hard to get everything going the way they want to no matter what it is. Sometimes they try to hard and end up making it even worse for them. People who try way too hard to get things in control normally get angry because the bad things in there life isn't controlled by them and they can't change the outcome of what happens. For example if you were date a guy who you really like for awhile and you thought it was going to last then out of nowhere he said he needed to take a break from you and then a week later he said he needed space so he broke up with you and no you're all mad. So you text him over and over again trying to figure out what you did but in the long run it was nothing you did.
Even the best constructed, well mannered, psychologically good reply to a nagging wife is useless if you don’t have ACTION! The more you argue the lesser she is attracted to you. The more you make promises you can’t keep, the lesser she is attracted to you. Starting today you should strive to be A MAN OF ACTION. Example: if she steps over one of your boundaries after warning her that you will go out of the house for an hour if she continue violating your boundary… you make sure that you actually DO it!
After going through different phases of life and facing various hurdles, I realized that some qualities are a must have if you want to succeed. Life is always full of problems and difficulties. And it is also true that you can never have enough of them. You will solve one and another will rise up. But it should not discourage.
While this may sound a bit harsh, the truth of it has been proven time and time again throughout the ages. Some people are given the toughest of circumstances to deal with, they are given the worst of breaks. Rather than fold and crumble, they have endured and risen to great heights in their life. Others catch a cold and its the end of the world! No matter what happens, it 's always a drama and they spend all their time telling the world about it and not making the
Life has a way of weighing us down, we want to live a life full of joy and success but the problems we come across in life, be it financially, academically or socially often leads to hopelessness but I am here to tell you that you can overcome. Everyone has a dream, and your dream is the one that will drive you when you in despair and you feel like you will not make it through the year. Your dream affects the way you talk, think and the way in which you live. George Bernard Shaw (1949, p465) once said, “Dream of things that were never there and ask yourself why not?”. Do not let your present situation limit your capabilities, whatever is on your report card right now does not mean you cannot but it is a motivation for you to press on even more harder.
