The Language Animal Spectrum
Language is a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, while all the time we long to move the stars to pity.
- Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880)
Submissive and Fractured Representations of Yesterday's Youth
The Language Animal Spectrum
Inspired by Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880)'s quote, "Language is a cracked kettle on which we beat out tunes for bears to dance to, while all the time we long to move the stars to pity." The titled responsion is...
Unrealistic and unrealized opportunities circumvent the true potential that lies right in front of us. This preoccupation with the imagined world of projected emotive responses will damage our species for generations to come.
Inspired by Wilhelm Wundt (Founding Father of Psychology)'s quote, "The distinguishing characteristics of mind are of a subjective sort; we know them only from the contents of our own consciousness.". The titled responsion is somewhat of a union between the object and the subject but don't take my word for it. What are your thought?
Youthful Persistence Sustains
Inspired by Marie Curie (1867-1934)'s quote, "All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.". The titled responsion is...
I would love to introduce imagined child versions of Marie Curie and E.O. Wilson to each other and watch the two play in wonderous natural discovery. I imagine the two sharing the discovery of nature in a way that is genuine, with the promise of their prominence to come.
This is one of the key lessons on youthful persistence; if you want to be successful in life, persistence is a must. If we can look at history and see how many people had to fight tooth and nail to achieve their goals; we have got to realize that persistence is not something that comes overnight, it takes patience.
Persistent children tend to do well in life because they are persistent. It's not all that easy to be persistent though. So how does persistence sustain itself?
If you have a positive attitude, perseverance, and determination, you can be a success. If you don't have those traits then you will have to work harder. The key to this is learning how to say no. This is a big step and you will need to learn how to say no to some things that aren't important. It doesn't mean though that you have to say no to everything, you have to learn to say no when it's relevant.
For example, say you have decided that a small business opportunity is a right thing for you to do. You're going to pursue this business and you are going to make a lot of money. The first problem is that you will have a tough time finding someone to start it with if you don't have the right attitude.
If you have a positive attitude you will be much more successful. This is good because you will have to learn to set realistic goals for yourself. If you set your goals so high that you're not able to keep up with them, you will have to say no to other opportunities. This is where you learn patience. You have to learn how to stay positive during difficult times.
One more key point on perseverance and being persistent is that you are the only one who can determine how long you're willing to put in for. In other words, it's your determination that determines how long it will take you to become successful.
At a very young age, we can see that some people are simply born to succeed and others are not. As we grow up, we see people that are consistent and successful. They learn from these experiences. These are the people who go on to become successful professionals, lawyers, doctors, and teachers. The reason why we see so many people struggle with life is that they do not know what is expected of them.
If you want to be successful in life, you must be consistent, persistent, and willing to learn. If you are determined to overcome challenges, you have the opportunity to achieve anything. If you want to achieve anything in life, you must take an honest assessment of your skills and abilities and determine if you have the determination and perseverance to go through the tough times.
There are many great books available that can teach us how to use our mind to accomplish things, but it is not always a good way to do things. Some people are not disciplined enough to make changes. When they find themselves in a situation where they have to make an important change, they find it easier to do the same thing again. instead of making a change that will benefit them. In other words, they are looking at the process of change from a negative point of view.
You can begin to change your old habits and behaviors by taking a course in positive thinking. This may take some time, but if you are willing to be consistent, then you will be able to change yourself into the person you want to be.
Think positively and focus on your goals and dreams. You don't have to be a good writer or a master gardener in order to have success. In fact, it can even help you out if you write for a living.
You can be a great teacher, a counselor, an executive, a mentor, and much more. The possibilities are endless, and you can reach your own personal success in life.
... And My Commission
Inspired by Wallace Stevens (1879-1955)'s quote, "After the final no there comes a yes and on that yes the future of the world hangs.". The titled responsion is a reference that every salesperson is aware of, keep pushing and finally you can reverse a no into a yes!
