At Longreads, Jessica Gross talks with author and behavioral economist Dan Ariely about understanding how humans behave from the ground up.
A fresh start
“We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.”― Charles R. Swindoll
Say what? Surely, you jest! Did you get a good look at the quote above? I did, & I have to admit, I’m sort of having a problem with it. This is easier said than done. It’s so much simpler to blame someone or something for whatever goes wrong in our lives. Now, don’t get me wrong, sometimes someone else IS at fault. I mean, did I tell that person to drive like a maniac & cut me off back at the stoplight? Did I ask that person to just cut in front of me at the grocery checkout? The nerve! And how about the person…

This post is written for Three Line Tales Challenge Number 42. It is a challenge put forth by Sonya from Only 100 Words, where we write a three line tale for the supplied image. You see those maze walls making the path narrow? Well, they are just the illusion. ‘Ignorance is bliss’, for the way out!
Its natural for us humans to look for answers and learn them, we are curious creature indeed.
I wish i had known things earlier.
How the world works, humans, nature and my peace within my soul.
What is this world am I living in? Love and Hate.
Light and dark exist both ways.
It is hard to judge what kind of world I am living in, observe till the end and find the answer.
If I say I want to save Earth, impossible. There is no way one tiny human can do it alone, together may be possible, but who knows what will happen.
Hope, is always there,with regards to Fear.
I kept thinking to myself, is there a way this could end? nuclear?bomb maybe?
Does peace even exist? war?
Asking question that has no absolute answer but to understand the message.
What should I believe? government?media? sources?humans?
Truth? and lies?
Ask yourself this:
Do you want to benefit yourself, or benefit the world?
Be in power, or help the powerless?
In my views, Power divides the people into 2 category, the rich and the poor. There is saying of, “The rich get richer, the poor get poorer”. This is where greed and fear comes to play, and I hope in my lifetime I would not fall in that trap, and if I did…which I hope not, by reading, learning and errors.
“Books is always there to guide few people who want to change.”
I am sharing the things I plan to do to make myself a better person, and of course you could learn one thing or another from me if you wish and i hope it benefits in your ways, view, and how you see things differently,vision, perspective.
Answer to life is lifetime process and progress.
Some have it fast, Some have it slow.
It depends how you commit,time, and action.
I am writing, to tell myself AGAIN how I want to commit to life. Some times, your plan can get out of track, there is no doubt telling that human minds can change from time to time, change of plans, unsure of their path. If you do have that straight path, that is GREAT! I envy you people to those who do.
What i am saying is, no matter the ups and down, if you do reach the target at the end…does it matter? There is no definite route for some people, always in search of answers, guidance, and choices. No matter what the choices is..as long as you think it will get you there, than i believe I can do it! you too!
It is always good to have “short term” and “long term” plans/goals
- Train to have great mind,happy, embracing life.
- Learn and learn, do not stop.
- To invest/own a business.
short term(currently 2016):
- finishing up university course
- Connect with more people, social and positive connections
- Please hustle, get things done.
Cheers beautiful people, I hope you always do have a plan in mind, comment below and let me know what you plan to do (if you want to share it).
I believe i want to start again,restart, change.
“In order to change, you start something, do something, react to something.”
Restart, you can forget the past and start a new one, but time goes forward so make it worth.
Contradict is my enemy,love your enemy.
“Learn how not to contradict yourself. I am not saying it is easy either, nor hard.”
Everything is a lesson and learning.
Personally, Life is journey.
“When life gives you is endless of opportunities, did you take it?”
Excuse is part of human nature.
Procrastination,delay and forget.
We are doing it out of fear.
“Learn your fear,one of human nature. fear is emotion,sad,depressed.”
If possible break away from it, breath, refreshed, fight your fear.
I am writing to this day, because of fear that i am not doing anything, busy,work, schedule.
I feel that if i want to change, i must start something, I believe this is step one.
Take a step, fear nor fear, may it gain you value or nothing.
You tried your best, and that is what matters.
To progress and life.

Being subdued seems like my life story.
I always felt this way since kids, but of course, as a human being I always want to improve myself. I was this type of guy, silent, quite or pretty much the listener type. But hey I am pretty sure you gonna say i am so uncool or some shit, that the popular guys have Mega humorist personality during high school.
- Nothing to feel bad about it, it is your life.
- You wanted to stay quite for different reason.
- You lack your energy because nothing you are not meant to be there.
- Your gloomy, because maybe something was up with your life.
Every person has its reason at the beginning to feel that way.
But whatever, now that I understand i learned a lot of things that i should have known.
“you do not fail in life, you learn as you progress.”
It is not so bad being the subdued person in class. It is not like you did anything bad? right?
Just sit tight and go through the lesson without trying to be proactive in away, and tell yourself that you will learn so well in class.
if I could live one more time I would kick myself in the butt and tell myself to be weird or an idiot(at worst) to tell myself that you do not have to be normal, no one is normal, no one is perfect(FACT)
I wish I could have overcome my strange subdued feelings. Heck, I am in a family where they expect so much ,which I wish they could have made it low as possible so you can expect the worse and try to improve their kids in a way they can succeed(thumbs up!).
You could always do something to make your life happier, even if making social interaction is hard, the internet is there to help you and maybe connects you with people who feels the same like you do and try to improve your life and their life.
“It is a game changing, if you do something about it”
Dear beautiful people on earth, if you ever feel subdued to a certain situation, just get out of there and let your energy takes you where you wanted to be. I hope it is that simple, just train your mind to be a better person and congrats yourself that you just took another step progressing your life.
