How To Know When The World Is Giving You More Than You Can Take

There’s no easy way to assess the world’s potential for negativity. As we all know, life is unfair.

I’ve spent a good deal of the last few years teaching people that they’re capable of doing great things, if they have the courage to do them. If you want a job that inspires you, ask yourself, “Is there a place for me in that world?” If so, you may find the job you really want. If not, just keep working, and if that’s not enough, take whatever job you can find. If you do get a job that makes you uncomfortable, you never know what tomorrow could bring. If everything goes right, things will go well, but if you don’t get what you want, you may never see it again. It’s a game, and it’s one of the last remaining opportunities that we have to see the potential in yourself. In a world where we have limited time, you need to find a job that motivates you by providing a high degree of opportunity. The best way to know if you can do great things and not disappoint others is to find a job that puts you in the hands of those who would actually say “yes.” Those who believe in you, those who believe in the quality of your work, those who would say yes to you. It’s in these situations that you will probably see progress on your path and see a life beyond your current circumstances.

What are the most positive things that have happened to you? What have you learned that you want to share with other people?

In the last several months, I have been learning about positive affirmations. One of my goals is to see how many people in the world have benefited from how I’ve been living, and if that number would go up if I made a simple affirmation to myself in every moment that I take. Every now and then, I’ll write one down and remind myself of. What happened to me when? Am I happy with myself? Was a good moment a good moment? What is the next step for me and for me alone? How much more can I achieve?

I’ve been writing a lot about the joy and joy-giving qualities of laughter, and also my relationship to other cultures. You can read most of my posts by simply clicking here . One post that I’m especially happy with is entitled: In A World That Gives You A Bad Case Of The Blues, Here’s Why I Love Being A Pole Dancing, Dance-Taking, Comedy-Acting, Hip Hop-Taking, Black-Panther-Listening, Cuddler-Hating, Pigeon-Hitting, Tundra-Loving Native American Girl

I found an article online about the most commonly used words in all of Asia, and I’d like to share an excerpt from there, because it highlights that we tend to use our own words in a way that gives our perspective a sort of skewed perspective.

The following is one of my favorite quotes from that article:

In Chinese, there are only three words which can be used to describe you. These are “good,” “bad” and “crazy.” What does that tell you about most people you meet?

This is my favorite part of that article. It puts to rest the notion that language and culture are hard-wired into us. We see our words reflecting our own values and opinions. It can only be a bad thing if we use our words as the basis for judgments about others. Why don’t I want to use my words to judge others? I can only do so much in the same way as I’m not able to be my own judge, judge, judge.

When I get sick, I use the word “stuck” instead of “sick.” When I’m running low on air, I ask myself, “Is my flight booked or no?” When I’m tired, I ask, “Am I tired? Am I hungry? Am I thirsty?” When my car breaks down, I ask myself, “Doesn’t my car need gas, or is my car broken, or broke, broken?” When someone dies I say “Goodbye” instead of “Goodbye.” I think that saying a lot of the same words to yourself has the effect of making it seem like words are actually meaningful.

My intention was to try to put a positive perspective, but my words are really meaningless. It’s the way we use them that are real.

It’s not about how we say words.
