Top 10 Things That Everybody Should Be Informed About In Life

life lessons

  1. Realize that nobody cares, and if they do, you shouldn’t care that they care. Got a new car? Nobody cares. You’ll get some gawkers for a couple of weeks—they don’t care. They’re curious. Three weeks in it’ll be just another shiny blob among all the thousands of others crawling down the freeway and sitting in garages and driveways up and down your street. People will care about your car just as much as you care about all of those. Got a new gewgaw? New wardrobe? Went to a swanky restaurant? Exotic vacation? Nobody cares. Don’t base your happiness on people caring, because they won’t. And if they do, they either want your stuff or hate you for it.
  2. Some rulebreakers will break rule number one. Occasionally, people in your life will defy the odds and actually care about you. Still not your stuff, sorry. But if they value you, they’ll value that you value it, and they’ll listen. When you talk about all of those things that nobody else cares about, they will look into your eyes and consume your words, and in that moment you will know that every part of them is there with you.
  3. Spend your life with rulebreakers. Marry them. Befriend them. Work with them. Spend weekends with them. No matter how much power you become possessed of, you’ll never be able to make someone care—so gather close the caring.
  4. Money is cheap. I mean, there’s a lot of it—trillions upon trillions of dollars floating around the world, largely made up of cash whose value is made up and ascribed to it, anyway. Don’t engineer your life around getting a slightly less tiny portion of this pile, and make your spirit of generosity reflect this principle. I knew a man who became driven by the desire to amass six figures in savings, so he worked and scrimped and sacrificed to get there. And he did… right before he died of cancer. I’m sure his wife’s new husband appreciated his diligence.
  5. Money is expensive. I mean, it’s difficult to get your hands on sometimes—and you never know when someone’s going to pull the floorboards out from under you—so don’t be stupid with it. Avoid debt on depreciating assets, and never incur debt in order to assuage your vanity (see rule number one). Debt has become normative, but don’t blithely accept it as a rite of passage into adulthood—debt represents imbalance and, in some sense, often a resignation of control. Student loan debt isn’t always avoidable, but it isn’t a given—my wife and I completed a combined ten years of college with zero debt between us. If you can’t avoid it, though, make sure that your degree is an investment rather than a liability—I mourn a bit for all of the people going tens of thousands of dollars in debt in pursuit of vague liberal arts degrees with no idea of what they want out of life. If you’re just dropping tuition dollars for lack of a better idea at the moment, just withdraw and go wander around Europe for a few weeks—I guarantee you’ll spend less and learn more in the process.

16 Harsh Truths that Make Us Stronger

July 24, 2013 | No Comments » | Topics: Life |

  1. Life is not easy. – Hard work makes people lucky – it’s the stuff that brings dreams to reality.  So start every morning ready to run farther than you did yesterday and fight harder than you ever have before. 
  2. You will fail sometimes.  – The faster you accept this, the faster you can get on with being brilliant.  You’ll never be 100% sure it will work, but you can always be 100% sure doing nothing won’t work.  So get out there and do something!  Either you succeed or you learn a vital lesson.  Win – Win.
  3. Right now, there’s a lot you don’t know. – The day you stop learning is the day you stop living.  Embrace new information, think about it and use it to advance yourself.
  4. There may not be a tomorrow. – Not for everyone.  Right now, someone on Earth is planning something for tomorrow without realizing they’re going to die today.  This is sad but true.  So spend your time wisely today and pause long enough to appreciate it.
  5. There’s a lot you can’t control. – Wasting your time, talent and emotional energy on things that are beyond your control is a recipe for frustration, misery and stagnation.  Invest your energy in the things you can control.
  6. Information is not true knowledge. – Knowledge comes from experience.  You can discuss a task a hundred times, but these discussions will only give you a philosophical understanding.  You must experience a task firsthand to truly know it.

Why I Play Chess

July 11, 2013 | No Comments » | Topics: Life, main |

Life is like a game of chess. Every move/decision you make can either bring you an advantage or a disadvantage. Even acting upon your wisest/planned decision can bring a negative outcome. Pieces must keep moving though. life keeps on moving. Wins and Losses are a part of life. Sacrifices must be made at some point. Expect the unexpected. When making a decision that wasn’t well thought out and have lost something BECAUSE of it, well it teaches to think twice next time, to be more vigilant. you musn’t ever regret your decisions because every mistake is a lesson. mistakes are part of our fate. In this fate of ours, our life, our game doesn’t end til’ the king is trapped/we die. keep playing. as you lose you ironically get better, once you begin winning and continue to do so, you will keep yourself better. but even when losses come regardless your best position in the game or life, you accept them as the human you are. THAT increases your rating in life in many delightful ways!

Why You Shouldn’t Commit Suicide, Put In Terms Of A Video Game

world of warcraft

New content is being added constantly to the game. While many people, like any MMORPG, tend to take the game to the extreme and just play it to acquire gold as fast as possible by grinding work quests constantly, there is nothing in the manual that says that levels and gold is the best thing to have.

Rather, I find the in-game environments and interacting with other players to be the best part. That is just me though. I really have never found a game as open-world as this one… Skyrim doesn’t even come close.

And you know what? There are a lot of other players who also sometimes get fed up with the game. Griefers are around a lot… and they don’t always get banned like they should. Sometimes people exploit the various quests and the admins don’t seem to notice or care. We all deal with these things. Sometimes some of the feature implementation for immersion also seems to be too difficult such as the "pay to play" services in order to move out of your randomly assigned default starting location (and lets be honest, some default starting locations need to be waaaaaaay nerfed. Even "good" starting locations many times have too many random events that are way above most players’ levels (even the high level ones)).

But even with these random events I have yet to see one that a player can’t get past with some ingenuity and help from guildmates and by using the forum (I will talk more about the forum in a moment). Unplugging is an option, yes, but due to the DRM nature of the game once you unplug once all saved data is erased. For that reason alone I would suggest waiting out unplugging from the game.

Now for using the Forum. A lot of people I think don’t use the Forum enough. Did you know that there are people employed IN-GAME to help you troubleshoot, fix, and make your playing experience more enjoyable? You can access these Forum help threads and be assigned to a GM with the tag "therapist." Try looking for Forum topics with the search function of "Therapists in _______" with whatever location you are. These GMs are specialized in helping you enjoy the game again, as well as helping you explore and find a specific play style you can be happy with. I can tell you, this function is greatly underutilized.

Please tell me more about what sort of in-game features you are struggling with, I am happy to talk more about it!

[Really though, I just want to say that you are not alone in feeling like you just want things to end… even if you know you won’t act on it there is help available for you, and by no means does it make you weak for it. As a resource, /r/suicidewatch does exist and while it isn’t a substitute for a suicide hotline or professional help, it can be someplace to talk. If you do feel like you might try ending your life please call 911 or The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.]

20 Positive Habits to Free Yourself from Negativity

June 27, 2013 | No Comments » | Topics: Life |


by Nick Notas

Emotions are habits formed through repetition. To change the way we feel, we must change our behaviors.

For many of us, our default emotional responses are negative. We are easily annoyed. We always expect the worst. And we have become bitter towards the world and ourselves. Those negative responses create an endless loop which further ingrains our negativity. We get to a point where we forget how to act happy and therefore be happy.

This is why I’m passionate about the positive psychology movement. It’s rooted in science (not fluff), and actually works. By practicing mindfulness and choosing positive habits we can break our negative cycles to lead healthy, happy, and productive lives.

  1. Be grateful every day. Praise others often and praise yourself even more. What are you proud of? What are you thankful for? Journal something positive about yourself or your day. We are our harshest critic and our constant self-teardown reinforces allow sense of worth. Instead of always asking “What’s wrong with me?”, start asking “What’s right with me?”
  2. Stop victimizing yourself. Bad stuff happens to everybody — you’re not the only one. I’m not downplaying your problems but it’s a reality you have to accept. Absolving yourself of all responsibility and blaming the world won’t fix anything. You are not entitled to happiness. So…

What Is The Best Advice You Received From Your Father?

June 16, 2013 | 2 Comments » | Topics: Life |

You can be whatever you want to be. If you dont make it, your effort probably stopped with just wanting.


If it looks like a duck & smells like a duck, it probably is a duck!!!

Your rent or house payment should never be more than 25% of your take home pay…

When you don’t have a choice on something, you can still choose you attitude.

If you lay down with the dogs, youll get thier fleas

Listen to your mother.

My father, when he was teaching me to drive, emphasized to me to not trust a driver stopped at an intersection, until you can see the whites of his eyes. It has kept me accident free, (except for once when I failed to do this), for 45 years of driving.

Don’t spend more than you earn, And try to earn at least your age in thousands

To listen twice as much as you speak.

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!

To “Pay Yourself 1st!” out of your paycheck…which means tuck some away in Savings! It’s worked out great for me!

Don’t focus on the destination, enjoy the journey.

Everything about life if a choice. Make good choices.

Don’t stay in a bad marriage “for the children”. All it does is teaches the children how to have a bad marriage.

Just because you make mistakes, doesn’t mean you are one.

Always remember the goal of an argument is to find a solution, not to win. So, when you (inevitably) argue with your spouse, hold their hand to remind you that they are, in fact, still the person you love & not someone you’re trying to destroy in a war.
