Strength and Research

Every second (ok, maybe third or fourth) person out there is bombarding us with clever campaigns to infuse our person with strength, to make us a stronger race, and to take charge of our lives with electricity and vision.

This is good, how can anybody argue?

What they fail to mention is how important it is to also charge forth with knowledge, research, openness, and wits about us to make intelligent decisions.

A quote of Gandhi’s I frequently paraphrase is: “Yesterday I made a decision based on the best of my knowledge. If today new knowledge is imparted on me that changes yesterday’s opinon, I will vocally and enthusiastically embrace that new knowledge and shall make today’s decisions with that new knowledge in mind.”

The most important thing we need in our push forward is – after we have used the inspiration or quote of wisdom to take our jump – to remain inside of our awareness, aware of our consciousness, conscious of our goals, goals based on thorough research, research founded on fundamental truths.

Don’t believe the people who are paid to make you believe in what they want you to believe.

That jump you just took, that blog you just started, that garden you just planted, that’s the fun and easy part, the part that’s been most likely sold to you.

Now’s the hard part. Make it happen. Stick to it and do your research.

Two Maps (Or Multiples Thereof)

There are two situations that can hold us up in life, that I’d like to talk about.

The first is hearing from people about how we should be doing this or that, which we evaluate this or that, and then decide from that evaluation how to proceed, continuing on a path driving forward and breaking into new territory.

The other is coming up against a wall and saying: “Oh, I can’t climb that wall. I’m afraid there’s evil beasts on the other side, or that there might be danger at the top, or that I might fall, or that I’m not even allowed.”

One of these situations is hindered by fear. The other one, though fear may be acknowledge, it is forged by knowledge and introspection.

We live life without a map. Many people will tell us there’s a map, and show us a map, and become satisfied when we follow their map, but if we look back in 50 year intervals over the past 300 years, we’ll see that map ever changing. These map makers, one can deduce, are just making it up for their benefit it would seem..

Pick a map that intrigues you.



Success is what most people search for. It can be in the form of successful business, successful relationships, successful journey, or a successful exercise routine, they are all rather related by constantly battling fear, and creating for yourself a set of ethics that align with your own knowledge you’ve gained at how to be a successful person.

In this section we will review lessons learned from many people in many industries and hopefully their lessons can be applied to your situation. This in itself, being able to apply others lessons to your own lesson, is a skill to learn to be successful!

Also, everybody has their own secrets to being successful, fortunately for those seeking to learn can take advantage of their interest in sharing them!

To compliment this section, we also have many topics arranged around ones attitude that can be adopted to feel great about oneself, as well as make everybody around you benefit from your attitude with things like effort and attention, balancing your life with your career, being able to motivate yourself and others, and how to be positive.
