Why You Should Start a Blog!

Creating your own blog and making it grow is very simple and quite fascinating!  It can be one of the greatest opportunities for anyone with an open mind, Blogging has so many benefits!  My goal for this article is to convince you that you need to create your own blog!  I’ll also later explain how simple it is, not to mention: It’s also free! 😉

Benefits of Having your own blog

1. You Learn By Blogging!
According to Work-Learning Research, Inc. (2006) studies reveal convincing evidence that two weeks after reading something, people are only likely to remember 10% of what they Learn Most by What We Say and Doread!  On the bright side, these studies indicate that people are generally apt to remember: 90% of the material in which they SAY and DO; and 70% of what they SAY .  So, in that case, you can read something and tell someone else about it to remember it better, or study the material, give a presentation, or you can write about it in your Blog to aide your memory!  Writing something in your Blog is synonymous teaching, or speaking.  If you ever want to know something, you can have the chance to read about it, then blog about it to retain your memory and live up to your words for a life changing experience!

Also, when you start a blog yourself, other blogs’ interface seem more familiar and simple because you have a better understanding of how the content is normally structured.

2. Blogging is the New Way to Have a Journal!
It used to be really popular to have a journal or a diary to express your thoughts and opinions.  Today it is much more exciting because you can have your own page online for publicizing your thoughts and opinions on the web for international access!

3. Blogging is Way Beyond Easy!
WordPress.com might seem a tad bit intimidating when first attempted; however, once you set up your page and understand the interface, it is so easy to write posts and pages.  You can be on any computer with internet to update/edit your pages as easy as writing a Microsoft Word document!

4. A Mindful of Opportunities!
Blogging gives you the sense of hope and opportunity.  How far can you go with it?  Some people blog just for fun, other’s blog for money!  You also can have the chance to help others out by sharing your thoughts and teaching others what you know.  Blogging gives you a chance to have something to look forward to, as well as a sense of self-importance.

5. It’s Free!
WordPress.com does not charge for having a blog…no start up fees, no hidden surprises, and no need to understand HTML code or other Web Developing Skills (although HTML and other Web Development information can be used for your benefit!)  The only things money can buy with WordPress.com blogs is: a nice domain (example: “http://www.myblog.com” instead of “http://www.myblog.wordpress.com“) or a few extra styling options.  The fully custom domain names are just $18.00 per year (prepaid)  and styling options vary; however, the styling options are really unnecessary.

6. Become an Official Individual!
“Blogs are wonderful tools to help bloggers establish themselves as experts in a field or topic. For example, if you’re trying to get a job in a specific field or hoping to publish a book on a specific topic, blogging can help legitimize your expertise and expand your online presence and platform” (, About.com Guide.)

7. Blogging is Permanent!
When you start a blog, it’s on the internet for however long you allow it to be!  The longer you leave it on and update it the more traffic you will get!  Compliment your blog so it can compliment you!  It is also nice to know that WordPress.com offers a stat counter for your blog, that way you can track how many people viewed your pages, along with how many clicks your page got and which days you got most viewers.

So what are you waiting for?  Start your own Blog today to experience many fortunate results of the genius that comes out of YOU! 😀

How Powerful are You….Really?

Little Me
How powerful do you think you are: at home, before a test, during conflict, accepting guilt, or standing up for a fight?  Sometimes you feel absolutely powerless or stupid and maybe simply less fortunate than others (if you compare your strengths to theirs…!)  We have all felt this way in some form or another.  Some things really seem to reveal how stupid we are!  Lets take a look at the facts and reality behind this deception.

First, I want you to be honest and think about how much more work you might complete on the first day before vacation vs. how much work you get done on the last day of vacation.  Or how about a time when you were given a daunting task that you wish you didn’t have to do, and later find out to your relief that you didn’t have to do it… it was “called off.”  What a great feeling!  All of that tension relieving your body, it feels great doesn’t it!?

Sometimes we belittle ourselves.  We tell ourself that we suck or compare ourselves to others; we wish we were more capable or wish we acquired someone else’s strength.  We need to learn from our mistakes, accept our problems, and teach ourselves some self-discipline!  Read the rest of the article to find out ways to reach this ability!

Use your entire brain power & do not belittle it’s powers!

Conscious mind is 10% while Subconscious is 90%

Our brain has a conscious mind and a subconscious mind.
Our conscious mind is what we are familiar with because it involves the thoughts we are aware of, examples might be: decisions we make, our problem solving skills through reasoning and choice.  The conscious mind only makes up 10% of your brainpower!
The subconscious mind makes up 90% of our brainpower!  It’s the part of the our mind that we never give enough credit to, it holds all the information that we hardwired into our mind throughout the past years.  The subconscious mind controls heartbeat, blinking, and reaction to stimulants.  It’s also how we are able to learn things to a point to where we no longer even need to think about doing it.  Consider your ability to type as you think without looking at the keyboard, or being able to multitask while driving, it wasn’t like this when you first learned these skills was it?  That’s how you might feel in tough times, but remember that the subconscious is there to help if you let it!  These two components of our brain are not separated in their own two pieces, they are linked together as a whole unit!

The two work together like this: the conscious mind is like the captain of the ship, while the sub-conscious mind is like the crew who work for the captain.  Or you can also think of theFunctions of the subconscious mind subconscious mind as the soil which accepts anything planted in it and “who’s in charge of the planting?”   Your conscious mind is!   ….remember, the one you have control over?

So in reality, your conscious mind controls how you will feel.  It’s able to process feelings in a secondhand nature.  Perhaps a stimulant will cause an unwanted feeling to pop up in your head, but your conscious mind has the ability to command those feelings to leave and become abolished or it has the option of not taking any action and letting the thoughts remain.  Just like the captain on the ship might experience dilemma with the crew, he can either stand around and let trauma come or take action to prevent it from occurring.  How much power will you choose to have over your subconscious mind!?

A Life of Perception

Love Ghost by Grave

“Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.
-Albert Einstein “

The world…. so big, so much happening in this very second, too much to even grasp the wits of it!  Perception is one of man’s greatest deceiving concepts.  As humans, we tend to jump to conclusions, when meeting new people we judge them by their looks, their speech, and what other people have said about them.  Sometimes we even go so far as to automatically reading their thoughts!

“The more I see, the less I know for sure.”
― John Lennon

As an ISFJ, I hold in my possession: the Extraverted Intuition function (Ne.)  Sometimes I wish I didn’t have it, while other times I’m grateful I do because I know that some people blindfold themselves from the truths with their certainty!  I imagine this function as being able to see things from all angles, or visualizing all the possibilities that could be true.  How can you tell if a person is truly being honest with you or just messing with you?  How can you tell how angry a person is at you, or if you truly are as amazing as they say you are?  How can you know for sure if their isn’t a God?  Do you really think that just by saying something, it’s therefore true…..?  Possibly….

Perception is interesting in a way because there can be an event for example, with a lot of people attending it and all of those people will have different reactions to the event.  Perhaps most of the introverts will despise it, some will pretend to like it, and some extroverts may even have to fake their appreciation if the situation is just right.  This same idea can be applied to people’s attitudes on a regular basis.  A person can appear to be enjoying something, when inside they’re mad as twilight, but just aren’t willing to admit it.

It is also interesting how perception can make a person satisfied.  Some people have restrictions, disabilities, or losses but still enjoy life to a fuller measure than a wealthy man who seeks more fame and glory.  However, there are money hungry people who enjoy life just as much as those who are satisfied being poor as well!  Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of what “fun” really is.  Fun can be having a serious face while finishing a 600 page literacy book, or fun can be dancing at a party full out, or fun can be observing the similarities between these two behaviors.  So, in theory, there is no way of defining a “perfect life.”  Everyone values different interests, professions, and skills.  No one skill beats the rest, just like no one person beats the rest, no matter how convincing some things might seem!  🙂

Filling Life with Happiness

Happy Wedding PictureA person can survive with Water, Food, and Sheltered environment.  But even with these variables being filled completely, a person is not apt to satisfaction, even under the most ideal conditions.  For example, other  factors might include self-acceptance, purpose, motivation, and gratitude.  The trajectory of happiness can vary depending on each person’s preference, but when happiness does occur, it can be described as “a state of pleasurable emotion.”  Although that is a simple way of putting it because happiness also has a deeper meaning (along with every other concept on Earth!)  Happiness can be learned and adapted throughout a long period of time, or it can emerge upon anyone at any time for temporary fulfillment.  The purpose is to achieve the highest capacity for all types of happiness and engage in full participation.

Many requirements that people often overlook may cause frustration, anger, or anxiety.  Many of these feelings can be fixed by understanding the cause of the frustration, whether it be a temporary or indelible dearth of happiness.  To procure elucidation for this concept of happiness we need to examine Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
