Compassion – Speaking With The Purpose Of Intention vs Attention

This girl was very famous back in 1998, but she recently came back and learned from her mistakes. Watch, listen, and learn from the lessons of Monica Lewinsky. She talked about cyber bullying which is very rampant, but preventable if we all work together on eliminating it. The talk is inspiring, and if you’re one of those who looked at her so badly in the past, set that aside for a moment and watch what she says.

Simple Yet Amazing Morning Habits That Could Be Turning Points For Your Health and Wellness

Just a few hours ago I’ve written a short post about how students, or even a typical individual can learn from the titans of technology when it comes to achieving success. And, I think part of being a successful person is to stay healthy and in tuned with the awesome resources of wellness. Although, it’s unfortunate Steve is gone now due to a health condition that affected him, hopefully this can remind us how vital health is in every day life. Being a student, specially college students who are already busy with lots of things as this stage is a preparation for something bigger, think about how can incorporate health and wellness in some way within your daily routine.

When I was still studying back in high school, I do regular exercises like jogging for 10 minutes along with stretching and body weight exercises. It was fun and healthy, at the same time. That was my first glance and understand that being healthy makes a person happy and efficient on what he/she do. Although, I’m not the most genius in the class, in fact, I’m not in the top 10, I can still recall those days when I do exercise, it made my entire day a lot easier to go along. In short, no stresses and feel a lot happier.

You can do the same, and here are a list of some common healthy ways you can do first thing in the morning prior to engaging on a busy student’s typical day. Of course, it can include some of the extra activities with someone special, or just hanging out with friends inside or outside the campus.

Be An Early Worm

This should be on a priority list for every student. Be an early worm means to wake up early. Of course, you have to have at least 5-7 hours of sleep depending on a person, but in my case 5 hours of quality sleep is amazing. Being able to wake early in the morning makes it easy to fit in a fantastic day ahead of you. If you’re a night owl, which is the reverse of the human natural clock, by the way, try to get into the natural cycle of your internal clock, and you’ll find it more satisfying, peaceful and quiet.

I understand that some are doing their student matters at night but don’t over do it that you end up sleeping midnight or even after midnight. There are ample of time during the day to do student matters, you just have to prioritize and set aside less important things and prioritize the most important ones. In other words, shift back to the normal turning of your internal clock. It might be difficult at first because you get used to being a night owl, or in other word, you made it a habit already. But, you can do it, there is no such a bad habit that cannot be break for someone who is persistent.

Additionally, whenever possible wake with the circadian rhythms where you see morning lights and chirping birds while catching the sunlight, you’ll be the first one to glimpse when the sun rises. Unfortunately, this could vary from season-to-season, but why not wake up an hour before it happens. It’s fun, and I don’t know what mystery about it but it’s also a good time to have a silent time with yourself. I’m talking about short meditation, and doing light stretching, which I mentioned later in this article.

And, by the way, if you want to learn more about circadian rhythm, watch this video below as it explains more;

How Circadian Rhythms Tunes Ones Health

Refresh Yourself With A Glass Of Warm Lemon Water

Making it a habit to drink a glass of lemon water upon waking lubricates the body’s internal systems. Compare it to an oil for the Tinman. If you don’t have lemon with you, which can happen from time-to-time, just drink a glass of water at room temperature. It helps a lot for the body rehydration process. Although, we don’t do a lot of things while we’re sleeping except for breathing, our body’s internal organs and systems don’t sleep and don’t take a break.

Scraping Your Tongue

If you’re not scraping your tongue, you might want to do it the earliest possible. Overtime, it is necessary to do it every morning, but if you’re not doing it right now, scrape you tongue every morning. It’s part of a having a proper dental hygiene. This prevents morning bad breath, as well. So, shop yourself a tongue scraper at stores near you, or check it out online at Amazon.com.

Additionally, there are some brands of toothbrushes that are designed with tongue scrapers or cleaners usually built-in at the back of the bristles. Yours might have one already, and you may or may not using it. If you’re not using it, start using it the next time you brush your teeth.

Perform Stretching Exercise Routine

Doing light stretches in the morning upon waking helps signal your muscles to wake up mode and have them ready for the rest of the day. Watch this video if you don’t have any idea on stretching. It does not need to be Yoga-type stretching, but if you can do it, the better.

Additionally, you could also do some energizing massages on various points of the body. This technique has been used for thousands of years, and it’s good to know that some people are teaching what they know about it. Donna Eden is very good what what she called Energy Medicine, which I’ve included a part of the video below.

There is no fixed limit as to how long you should do stretching. Do stretching as long as you can…maybe for 5 minutes, or 10 minutes. No exact limit, and soon you’ll be able to notice how long is right for you when you do it very often and make it a habit.

Take A Few Minutes of Silence (Short Meditation)

It’s really helpful and healthful to sit down and take a quiet moment for a few minutes doing meditation. Don’t worry, if you’re thinking about those grueling hours meditation by monks, you won’t be doing it. Instead, just take a few minutes to clear your mind meaning without thinking anything, but simply focusing in breathing.

Short meditation does not need you to sit in lotus position, just sit down on a chair or floor as long as you’re comfortable. However, it is a requirement that you should sit with your spine straight. The spine is an extension to the brain, and sitting upright helps you pay attention or focus. If it’s your first time meditating, there are lots of good meditation tutorials in YouTube, go through the tutorials. Don’t expect to be a master of it the first time as it takes practice. Trust me, your effort you put into practicing meditation won’t be in vain because I have real life experience with it.

Overtime, as you get more comfortable with meditation, you can always take it further by taking it to a more advance level. Hopefully, when that time come, you’ll be able to notice the amazing health benefits of meditation when done correctly.

Here’s one video explaining the basics of meditation…for beginners;

Face In The Mirror And Smile To Yourself

Smile On Mirror

I first learned about facing on the mirror by means of developing self-confidence from Claude Bristol’s Magic of Believing. This really is an effective, and if you think it’s silly, it is but go through it because it will pay off in the long run. If you have room mates with you and you’re afraid of being ridiculed, do it inside the bathroom.

When I was in college, I didn’t knew this technique. However, today we have a big mirror placed near the front door. Everyone in the family has been practicing smiling on yourself at the mirror. So, before we go out the front door and head to work, or vacation, or some other reasons, we stop a few seconds in front of the mirror and smile.

You should do so also, and if you’re in fear of being ridiculed by colleagues or roommates, the mirror inside the bathroom is your friend. Also, toilet mirrors at schools and malls are also helpful. Just take a glance of yourself and say positive things in a silent fashion. Soon, you’ll notice you’re already building up your confidence with yourself.

There you have it, and I know it’s just a few but I’m certain this can get you started easily. You don’t have to them all at once, but pick one that you’re comfortable doing first. Then, do it consistently and once you’re in a habit of doing it, apply another technique and make it habit, and apply another next time. The key is to make it your habit because once it becomes a habit, it’s easy to do and stick to it even for life.

Lessons From The Titans Bill Gates and Steve Jobs

I know this video is not new, but I wanted to post it here not for the purpose of promoting of either Mac/Apple or Microsoft. Instead, I would like you to watch or watch again this interview of both Steve Jobs of Apple/Macintosh and Bill Gates of Microsoft. Seriously, if you’ve watched it already, what lessons did you get from these technology titans?

The first time I’ve watched it 2 years back, I was thinking about who will dominate the computer industry. However, as I’ve watched it and watched it again and again, I realized there was really not much competition between the two giants. In fact, there were some sort of cooperation at the beginning. Perhaps now different specially that Steve Jobs is gone, but hopefully the vision is still the same.

Watch the video, and especially right at the end where both guys answered questions from the audience. They were asked about what advice they can give to starters. I was particularly interested on Steve Job’s respond that really passion or doing what you love has a lot to do when it comes to achieving success. This is very important for students because as we know and it’s really a prevalent fact anywhere in the world that majority of students simply go to school study without knowing where they’re going.

I was one of these types of students when I was studying from the very beginning until college. I though that when I graduate in college I would have a great life and amazing lifestyle. However, it was not the case and I realized later in life that knowing what you really want in life can one in the right direction and be able to persevere during hard times. Combine what you really want with passion, it becomes irresistible.

So, here I present you the two titans in technology particular in computers. Watch and listen to what they say with attention and you’ll be able to catch a deeper understanding on how they become what they are today. Of course, Steve is not here anymore, but his legacy will live on as long as we see Mac/Apple computers in the market, and Bill’s amazing philanthropic work has helped and benefited millions from all over the world.

7 College Boy’s Tips On How To Meet and Talk To Gorgeous College Girls With Effortless Confidence

For most typical college boys, having an effective concept on how to meet college girls inside and outside the campus is somewhat puzzling, and to be honest, not many men possessed this unique skills in meeting women with effortless confidence. This is specially true for high school, and inexperience college boys who tend to repel or shy away with women. In addition, some are tend to be comfortable with not so-gorgeous women, but when it comes to fine and beautiful women, the shyness prevails.

Meet College Girls

There’s no wonder why a lot men are asking similar questions over and over; what kind of special powers does this average Joe possess…why it’s so easy for him to meet and talk to women of any level. In fact, we’ve seen a few of these average guys inside and out of the college campus seen as favorite by women, beautiful and gorgeous women from various walks of life.

Take note, majority of these average Joe we’re talking here are not that intelligent or good at their classes, or don’t have any luxury possessions such as money and cars, but still they’re a magnet to girls. You may actually experience this if one your buddies posses the same women-magnet quality, but you just can’t seem to grasp what is really going on.

Well, to be honest… these average Joe’s have certain quality in which college girls like to enjoy when they’re with him. In this article, we’re going to divulge these qualities and characteristics in order for a guy to become a magnet for women.

  1. Become Popular – Women specially young college girls like to to admire, trust and be courteous on you if you’re a popular guy. In fact, simply by being popular triggers some women the want to date you. Of course, don’t expect everyone to be pleased by your popularity, and don’t freak out on that, and simply go with the one’s who accepted your popularity.

    When I say become popular, you don’t need to be a celebrity. Simply go out and talk to them whenever you see them. So, instead of sitting right at the corner alone, hangout with women and in the room. Join the discussion, and be friendly.

  2. Be Funny – Seriously, funny guys or guys with good sense of humor meet and liked by women most. Personally, I can attest, if you can make a girl laugh or enjoy with your sense if you humor, it’s the first big step, and if you want to engage her with you, the next steps are so much easier. So, instead of talking political matters, or any topic in a serious manner, make them somewhat funny, but not to a certain extent you’re insulting anyone in the group.

    It has been well-established that if you can make others enjoy or laugh, it breaks down anyone’s defensive barriers around you. Doing so, warms up both your personality and yourself, plus making those around you being comfortable and happy. People of any levels, all ages, and from various walks of life want to be happy. If you can make them happy, you fulfill their wants or needs to be happy.

  3. Get Excited and Make Every Day Different – This seems to be difficult, but in reality it is not. In fact, knowing how you can enjoy yourself on a daily basis is easy and it’s a good way to reduce or even eliminate stress. Happy people are a magnet of anything, and if you’re a college boy who want to be with gorgeous women, be happy because they will be drawn to you. This alone is a significant women-magnet factor for a man like you.
  4. Be Interesting – At first, you might find this difficult, but with constant attempts and be with women, you’ll be able to find it very simple. This is one of the most effective means of attracting women’s attention towards you, and by attention means you magnetized them because they’re interested on you, on what you want to tell them next, and how you’ll present it to them. It’s not necessary to dance when you talk to them, or be a poetic when you talk, it’s just somewhat making your punch line catchy and interesting.

    Make the way you talk memorable and easy to comprehend. Dress properly, but not overkill. This tip is somewhat closely connected to “Be Funny” tip, but it’s more of how you present yourself, and the way you use words or combination of words and phrases to make them very interesting for women.

  5. Dress For Success – Well, I’ve got that phrase from song by Roxette(dressed for success). Let’s face it, no girl whether a college or professional women would like to hangout with a guy that looks like a street guy who has not changed dress for months, or perhaps a guy that looks like a drunken man who doesn’t comb his hair, and brush his teeth. In short, care for you hygiene. You don’t need to look like a business actor, but find yourself dressed neatly, respectable, and smells good.
  6. Accept The Fact You Are The Pursuer – Don’t expect women to be magnetized to you immediately. You have to make the effort, and once you gained that confidence, this becomes effortless. Also, don’t be so focused on it, but also with your studies. Remember, it’s your primary responsibility to study and achieve success in college, and having to meet women in an effective and effortless manner is just secondary, although it is a great source of inspiration during your studies specially if you engaged with someone as your regular date.
  7. Tap Into Women’s Cute Brains – This is a different and somewhat not being mentioned in some tips available online, or anywhere else. It’s about training and using your mind in a psychic way to think women and let them think about you. Sounds magical? Not at all, but you need more practice on this, and perhaps more focus. Just like learning meditation, it takes time. The first step you can do is to visualize you’re talking to women, or to someone you admire most every day whenever you can. You may call it day dreaming, but I call it visualization.

    However, make sure you’re visualizing it in a positive way and not in a negative manner. For instance, if you want to talk to someone you dearly admire, and talk to her alone with you, visualize your conversation with her in a positive manner. Make her answer or agree positively with you and feel the actual effect of it. Do it regularly, whenever you can. And, when the time comes the opportunity presents itself and it seems it’s the chance you’ve been visualizing, act on it immediately. Simply visualizing and not acting when the chance presents, is just day dreaming. This is your chance to make the thing you visualized a reality.

The emphasis of having to know where to meet college women is additionally a helpful factor in which you can dig deeper into gaining more confidence meeting them. Mostly, college girls hangout on both public and school libraries, salon, beauty shops, bars and disco houses, university canteens or coffee shops, malls, and of course parties. Know where you can meet them, try to hangout with them. Be cool, but don’t be over-confident where you are not being cool for women anymore. In short, be yourself.

And, simply knowing these tips without applying them won’t make you progressed towards what you want. Practice makes perfect, and to build that confidence, always practice meeting women anywhere. And, don’t just meet women, but all kinds of people and try to project yourself and aim to become magnetic every time. If you want to dig further about the many tricks and ways to gain confidence in meeting women, there are loads of resources you can read online, or, you can check the Tao Of Badass, which is a practical guide for men in order to be successful with women.

7 Tips and Steps For Choosing A College Major That Suits You

For some students, choosing a major is a no-brainer. The know exactly what they want to do in life and what major will help get them in their way. However, if you’re in the roughly 80% of students who head to college “UNDECIDED”, choosing a field of study can be an overwhelming journey.

For serious students, you should start doing your research about going to college as early as your first day in high school. Ask friends, or family members who have recently enrolled or have just finished college. Consult with them what are their experiences and things you should know when it’s your turn to get into college. Consider asking things like size of the school, whether it’s public or private, available programs and extra-curricular are offered.

Here’s a fact; 80% of students who are bound to college after graduating high school choose their college or university without having a clear idea of what major they are going to take.

Don’t be with these 80% as it is very important to succeed not only school but in real life to have a clear goals in mind about what you want to be and what do you love and want to do for the rest of your life. There’s no wonder there are only a fraction of billionaires and millionaires compare to those who are broke and do not know what they want to do in life except to work and work. The financial individuals call this the rat race.

Recall Past Experiences

Think about over your high school years about things you enjoyed doing and had success with it easily. What things you were passionate on? And, Was it something you would like to pursue after graduating college?

Recall Experiences

These are some of the important you should ask yourself in choosing your major. And, don’t just ask yourself with these questions but answer them with all of your heart. Doing so allows you to find your true passion in life and it’s always better to start earlier, as the earlier you start, the better you are prepared and discover what you really want to pursue for the rest of your life.

Change Can Do You Good

Simply because you declared a major doesn’t mean your decision is set in stone. While this can be costly and time-consuming, it is an option. The more research and soul searching you perform as time passed by, the more likely it is you’ll stick with a major that can help you along in achieving what you really want in life in terms of your career and even with your personal ambitions.

Change

And, do you know 50% of students who declare a major change their mind often more than once? If you’re among these 50%, don’t be disappointed. But make sure, you do have a clear goal in mind about what you want to be and nurture that objective, and out of nowhere, you will be guided by your inner conscience about what major to take as long as you take this researching in a serious effort.

Seek Out Mentorship

Mentoring

Once you have identified your potential career path, try to find someone in that role who can offer or share advice and insights into career opportunities, day-to-day tasks, expectations on compensation or salary, and tips on how to balance well your personal life and work.

Look At The Big Picture

Big Picture

Evaluate what is required for your degree such as types of classes, number of years to complete studying and graduate, student loan, etc.

Do What You Love Doing

Although the job market’s demand is certainly a wise consideration, make sure you’re interested in the field you are about to pursue with your major. Simply going for jobs that are currently in-demand with good salary and job security are hardly worth it if you are not happy with the field you choose.

Do What You Love

On the other hand, if love what you do even with a small starting salary, you will be able to stick with it because you will be satisfied and happy with the work or career and you are in tuned with the people you are working with. And, if you demand more when it comes to salary and financial security or even freedom, you are more likely to get it because you love what you do. It’s your passion.

Allow yourself some time to explore in details the various areas of study before making a decision on what major to take when you to go college. Always begin with your passion, or things you love doing because through this, you will have higher chances of succeeding.

Don’t Rush To Decide

Never Rush

If you still not sure about a major, sign-up for a variety of basic classes to explore different subject areas. What you like might surprise you. However, for the few who already have a crystal clear goal, this may not be necessary.

Ask For Help

Academic Advisor

Use academic adviser as a resource because that is what they’re for, to help undecided students pick their major. These people can help you come up with an informed decision such as adding or dropping your current course choice to assessing your strengths and goals.

These steps are not definite. Instead, use them as your guidelines to get started in choosing your college major. As suggested, it is better to start early. So, if you’re a high school freshman reading this article, list down these tips as it can help a long the way in choosing with major.

Since the day I can remember the first time I encountered the word hacking, it is always associated with negative notion.

However, like majority of things, it can either be utilized in a positive or negative way.

Today, hacking is applied in many aspects in life like bio and brain hacking, a lot of people apply in the world of computers either through hardware or software, some people apply in when it comes to achieving beyond what the human body can achieved, at least with current science viewpoint on penis size enlargement, which was also a topic covered previously, and among numerous other things. Take this for instance, those great inventors like Thomas Edison, and business tycoons like Henry Ford can be considered hackers. Why? For the reason they didn’t accepted what the current technology back in their times, and instead go further to discover they can do more and achieve better advancements. They were right, and now we enjoy their hacking achievements.
