“Research”

Being in the health market; I see a lot of people who wants to do “research” on my product and they do so by going online. They make their decision based on the first blog that mention it.

Now, I have access to scientific research that proves my product is good but because I’m the one who supplies the research and the product, they automatically think that it’s bias.

What are the chances that I paid a scientist million of dollars to falsify the result of a research vs the chances that the “blogger” had no clue what he was talking about?

Note: Dr Shauss, one of the scientific behind the research, is not affiliated with the product. He just tested it!

Being Aware that We’re Going to Die

We will all die eventually, there’s no way around it. That truth becomes more evident the older we get.

I remember when I was a teen, I would do things and my parents would tell me “You will regret this later on”. Well now I’m 25 and I can safely say that they were right.

Life is like climbing a one sided mountain. The longer we climb, the more we see that there’s a limit, or a top. Many dies way before they realize there’s a top, they just arrived to the top without knowing simply because the first few steps are the easiest ones.

The body is design to make us realize that we’re here for a limited amount of time. As we grow older, there’s a few aches and pains that appears. Flue tends to stick with us longer and our energy level seems to be on the low more often than we would like it to be.

Death should not be feared but embraced as a natural part of life. We’re here for a limited amount of time, let’s make our lives count by influencing this negative society in a positive way.

There’s More to a txt Than Just Letters

I realized that the wording I use when I feel confident, on a txt, is different than when I don’t feel confident (It’s funny how non-constant confidence can be).

The body is quite amazing. It can tell you what’s wrong with it. If you spend time studying your past txt messages, you may find quite a bit about yourself in the process.
How you feel shows in what you say or do.

Trying to hide it is not the answer. Finding out why is. Spend time trying to figure out your emotions and be at peace with it. It’s okay to feel sad, or down. Figuring out your emotion will help diminish the amount of time that you are in such state of mind.

What great things have you learned about yourself today?

"Leadership: Tidbits and treasures" Book Review

I usually write reviews of the books I read in a small journal. Through some chain of events, I’ve lost it and I decided to write one on here instead.

Now before I start, here’s a little bit of my recent background. I’ve been through a lot of emotional experience lately and I use books to try to figure out things about my life. "Leadership: Tidbits and treasures" book, by Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward, did just that.

The title best defines what the book is about; “Leadership: Tidbits and treasures” is a book with short chapters that cover various subjects for individuals looking to lead. The book covered a vast aray of subjects (Integrity, character, freedom, politics … just to name a few).

What I liked the most about those authors is the simplicity of the words they use. I don’t need to have a dictionary at hand to understand the point that they’re trying to make. They also tend to back up their messages by quoting what other authors said on the subject which shows that they spend time studying.

If I would have a rating system, I would give this books 4.5 thumbs up out of 5 (I would give it a 5 thumbs up but one of my thumbs got cut off in half … I don’t want to talk about it). I recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for an easy read on leadership.

Relationships Turn Around

How can a loving couple eventually end up not even speaking to each other? I understand that there’s times where it’s needed to part ways and I just wonder when does an act of love becomes an annoyance rather than a expression of love.

If you still had feelings for the person that broke up with you, then you may know what i’m talking about. It’s when you tell them that you miss them and they “sigh” rather than be happy about it. Which is the normal thing to do since their heart wonders somewhere else.

Some say that they grew apart while others are afraid of commitment or happiness. All I know for sure is that once the “in love “ experience is over, love becomes work and not many out there are willing to work for it.

Business Ethic - Why I choose Apple

A long time ago, I was looking for an mp3 player and decided to go with Apple. I was hearing great things about the ipod and was able to find one second hand (nano) for 35$. A couple years later, I can safely say that it’s the best mp3 player I ever had (still works perfectly).

Now that I want to get into the smart phone market, which company do you think I will be more likely to choose? I’m aware that the Iphone 4 isn’t the best smart phone on the market but I don’t trust any other company. Apple already proved to me, with the ipod, that they build things to last. I can’t say the same with any other company.

Business ethic is really important. By making quality product, in one area, apple actually sold me on an entirely different market even while not being the best. Everything, from the un-boxing to the IOS, looks like it’s a big deal. Those of you who bought an apple product new know what I’m talking about.

Being Indifferent - The End of a Relationship

If you have experienced a break-up, you’re familiar with the “indifferent” stage. It’s when you feel like you’re now annoying the person who broke up with you.

There’s not much you can do when it’s up to that point. I’d say that the opposite of what you want to do is the right thing to do. Assuming that what you want to do is to be back with the person who broke up with you.

Moving on from a relationship is like removing a band-aid. You can do it slowly so that the pain is small but last longer or you can do it quickly which is more painful for a smaller period of time.

Your choice.

Not choosing IS choosing

“Most decisions are not fatal and every decision increases your ability to decide the next time.” -Orrin Woodward

Not choosing something is choosing what was set up as default. It is better to decide and assume the consequences than it is to stay put and let things happen. Being indecisive sometime come across as low self esteem.

Make decisions! :)

I Write Because I Want To

“Either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.” - Benjamin Franklin

I’m not a writer. My English ain’t that great and I often miss the point that I wanted to make … yet here I am writing again.

I do it because I like it. So far, it’s been more beneficial to me than anything else. It helps me put things into perspective and “forces” me to learn in order to find things to talk about.

I’m thinking of writing a book, down the road, using my best blogs. I’m not looking to make money, I just feel like I can write things worth reading.

Being on the Fence

Being on the fence is when you’re not sure of your next move. There’s usually more than one option (to stay put being one of them).

Sometimes, people may wait for your decision and leave before any decision was made. Being on the fence doesn’t benefit anyone. It’s best to take a side and assume the consequences.

In the past, I always took my decision based on “I don’t want to hurt anybody” and it turned out to hurt me. My advice to you is it doesn’t matter what side you take as long as the decision is yours.

Break up-The stages of the “Breaker”

Who ever initiate a break-up goes through different stages, or feelings, afterwards. It’s never easy to let someone go and it’s interesting to see the changes inside of a person after such event happens. I've identified the following (does not necessary happen in a sequence):

Relief: If nothing is stopping it, a relationship usually slowly deteriorates before the breaker ends it. Due to the week/months of tension prior to the break-up, there’s a sentiment of relief and freedom that takes over soon after it ends.

Confused: This stage usually follows the relief. The confused individual doesn’t know if breaking up was a good idea. They don’t want to hurt the other person and they like having that person around still. They still meet and stay in contact.

Indifferent/Acceptance: This stage usually follows the confused stage. This is where they feel they made the right decision by letting the other person go. They don’t feel anything (maybe friendship) at this point and they couldn’t care less what the other person does with their lives. This is where they start to loose contact. They moved on.

Hate: It occurs when the breakup was due to treason or other harsh experience. It could potentially follow the indifferent stage if the “ex” is trying hard to get attention or get back together. The person, who initiated the break-up, has not only moved on but also avoid the ex when ever possible.

If you’ve been through a break up, you may be able to relate with one of the step above. If it’s different, let me know and I’ll consider changing/adding the list. :)

Fear of Relationship Commitment

The fear to commit is only present when there’s second thoughts about what you’re trying to achieve. In a relationship, it’s present when there’s second thoughts about the other person.

A relationship doesn’t just end up suddenly. It happens gradually until 1, of the 2, Finally decides to move on.The popular belief is that love is supposed to last for ever and we should call it “quit” as soon as we feel it’s gone while in-fact; love needs to be worked on constantly.

After the initial “In love” experience, certain habits starts to form and we start seeing the other person as a “normal” person rather than the super person we fell in love with. In order to keep the flames big and bright, we need to constantly put wood in the fire by doing things for each other.

It takes two to work at it. One side relationships doesn’t work. If you’re the only one doing all the work, you will either get tired and leave or the other person will leave. Why would the other person leave in this case? Giving away love is also a good way to feel it back and if the other person doesn’t give love, that person won’t feel love regardless of what you’re trying to do. If there’s no interest in doing things FOR you then there’s probably no interest IN you.

Not inspired Today

My mind is filled with thoughts that I can’t seem to put into words. My heart contains feelings that I have yet to understand.

What do you write about in such situation? You do like me and talk about it! :)

Feeling Fat

Feelings are often illogical. If weight is important to you and you wake up feeling fat but a quick look at the scale shows you didn’t gain weight, why do you feel fat?

When ever I feel fat, I can always trace it back to a bad meal I got, or when I skipped the gym. I feel fat because I didn’t do what I was supposed to do.
I don’t ignore those feelings when I get them because Health & Fitness is important to me. What I do instead is take a mental note of it and fix it by eating a healthier meal and going to the gym.

Here we Go Again

How is it that different situations, handle in a similar way, gives similar result? Have you ever been in a situation, with a someone, where you were like “Hey, I was here before but not with that person...”.

“Lesson repeated until lesson learned.” -Unknown

Noticing it, to me, is the crazy part. It’s my chance to make the outcome different because I can now potentially know how things will end up. If I act differently, the outcome will be different.

Those situation are usually bad ones so for me to notice them is a great blessing.
