I'm a daydreamer who dreams of his Freedom while he's awake, like a warrior who became a slave in the Roman Empire era.

1. Zig Ziglar on the Greatness of Starting.
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” ~ Zig Ziglar
Well, yeaaah I can totally understand this one I truly get it. I used to wait for this perfect moment that I become flawless and perfect at a certain thing to start doing it, but guess what..that moment never came and would've never come in a million years!
Because as Zig Ziglar said, “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” And actually this makes more sense, most of the time you start with nothing just (0) and from that point, you start building up and get better and better as you go. Take babies for example, they don't wait to be 1-year old for them to decide to walk all the sudden, instead they start this particular journey from 7 to 9 month by crawling and with ZERO knowledge about Newton's laws of gravity they get better and better until they run everywhere like minions!
That's how everything starts, so you have to start loving Zeros more often from now on.

3. "Who Dares, Wins. Who Sweats, Wins. Who Plans, Wins." - British Special Air Service (SAS)
Maybe for this Quote, I would've found another picture to fit better the topic. But I couldn't, my intentions were very clear that I wanted the picture and not necessarily the quote, so I intended to put it anyway. Sure the quote is great, but guys I want you to aggressively contemplate the picture, memorize it and let it be always engraved in the back of your heads. This pic should let us all not just monster motivated, it should let Us embarrassed as well, people with disabilities are people like us...they just have all the challenges that we (abled) humans face in our lives at least twice harder and more challenging if not more, and they pretty much always leave us astonished by them and what they do and give us the example and the best hope. They do so in every aspect either it's (sports, jobs & careers, financials, fame and in life itself).
I don't know about each and every one of you guys, but for me, if I'm gonna be ever motivated in life and will do something with it, make a move and take actions, these amazing, strong, inspiring people will definitely be my walls breakers without leaving me any choices or excuses not to be something in life.
This pic made me recall a guy called 'Nick Vujicic', he's an amazing guy that is very popular and I guess a lot of you know it. Let's see one of his videos, just after the end of this sentence, I hope it will at least change some of your perspectives on life and yourselves.

4. “When you’re good at something, you’ll tell everyone. When you’re great at something, they’ll tell you.” – Hall of Fame running back Walter Payton
Walter was an example of his own words, he gave the world his Quote and his legacy as a Hall of fame legend that the world still remembers him till that day after all these years. Maybe perfection is overrated and is more fake than authentic for us as Humans. I have been told that the coolest things about Humans that they're mortal and not perfect because that's what gives life meaning and taste, and what makes every second count and makes it more precious.
Being great or being just good is not what matters the most, what matters the most is that you become the person that you would be proud and happy to be, and I'm sure "Sweetness" did that for himself and all of us. God bless his soul.
5. What are the two most important days of your life?
Let me tell you an easy, logical way to think about it. If you are reading this article that means you're already strong enough and have a purpose in life and most probably you're carrying a warriors bloodline in your veins because you have grand grandfathers that have survived in older cruel eras, so eventually warriors traits are installed in your DNA by default you lucky bastards. And because among Millions of sperms, the ovule turned to be yours at the end of this microscopic war and you won before you even come to this life!
So that will take us to the next point and that is (You have a purpose), all you have to do is to complete your destined fate and know what it is. And this my friend will be the second most important day of your life.
I know it might look like I'm joking, and I might be kinda joking by putting a Quote like this in such a funny image just to loosen up a little and make it simple, but at the end don't you think it makes sense?!
So why don't you complete as a warrior and don't lose your past, nor waste your future?
6. Why quitting now?!
There is an amazing book called "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying" By Bronnie Ware, that I was reading recently, PS: There is a lot that I have learned from this book, so it's recommended as a must-read book. One of the things that I have learned is to somehow change the way I look at quitting or giving up as a word or term and what they mean. As it's a true story that Bronnie Ware was the main protagonist, in different occasions she was telling stories at some points in her life that she was emotionally, physically, mentally and pretty much in every shape and form drained, exhausted and hopeless, she had no place to stay, no money, no food and she had done all that in her power at the time, that there is nothing left to do than to give up while she's falling without hope. Treas were falling silently on her cheeks while she's (surrendering) to the bigger force of the universe, I still remember the exact word (surrender) and as she did that the universe responded, and every time where she was about to hit bottom and the situation brings her closer to her deepest fears within, somehow she lands on her feet. So her leap of faith was getting stronger every time and she noticed the pattern and started to pay more attention and she learned that at some point in life you'll just have to surrender yourself and everything to a greater force, and the universe after you have nothing else left that you could have done. Just take a leap of faith and let go. A quoted paragraph from the book "My intentions were already out there and I had taken what actions I could. My only job now was to get out of the way.
I laughed gently at myself remembering I had forgotten this. It was a lesson from previous times. When I was out on the very end of a thin, flimsy bending limb, the only thing to do was surrender and see where I landed. It was time to let go again.
Surrender is not giving up, far from it. Surrender takes an enormous amount of courage. Often we are only capable of doing so when the pain of trying to control the outcome becomes too much to bear. Reaching that point is actually liberating, even if it is not fun. Being able to accept there is absolutely nothing more you can do, other than hand it over to the greater force, is the catalyst that finally opens the flow."
Michael Jordan once said:
"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career.
I've lost almost 300 games
26 times I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot ... and missed.
I've failed over and over and over again in my life. That is why I succeed."
~ Michael Jordan.
If Michael Jordan didn't miss these 9000 shots in his career, haven't lost 300 games, and was not trusted to take the game-winning shot and failed 26 times maybe the world wouldn't recognize Michael Jordan as it does now. I mean this guy is like one of two sides of a Basket-Ball coin! And I'm sure that for years and years it doesn't matter if you like or understand Basket-Ball or not, but if you hear just the Word (Basket-Ball) all that pops in your head is this guy! I know that for sure there are other great basketball players like (LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Julius Erving, Wilt Chamberlain, Larry Bird......etc) but yet still Michael Jordan's fame as a phenom in this game has reached the extent that no one on earth doesn't know who the guy is.
I could go all night writing about people and things that make quitting and giving up a very bad decision to make. Do yourself a favor, don't give up and know that the best way to succeed is to fail.
You'll not regret it.
It's time for a break, let's watch this great Video.
7. When your life is on the line, you'll learn a lot about yourself.
This guy is definitely one who made a lot of controversial circles around him while he lived and after he passed away, but one thing for sure is that he's a legend.
Puller was the most decorated Marine in history, and one of the many controversies that accompanied the man other than some researchers that are saying that this quote might not be said by him but may instead have been said by General O.P.Smith, and the way the quote was said has several versions, but me personally I guess I prefer this one. Even the reason behind his nickname is like a riddle. Some say Puller got his famous nickname because of his big, thrust-out chest; the myth was that the original had been shot away and the new chest was a steel plate. Others state that “chesty” was an old Marine expression meaning cocky. A few claimed that he developed the chest from shouting commands above the noise of battle.
"We don't need no front-line communications," men under Puller bragged, "Chesty yells commands up and down the line. You can hear him for miles."
Anyway, the controversies are not our concern here, it was just the least introduction that the man deserves. What we're concerned about now are his mindset and power, his heart never knew fear and that's why he died a long way far from the battlefield after 37 years of service. He lived in Virginia and died in 1971, at age 73. What can I learn from him, that two in a fight, the one who wins is the one with less fear and nothing to lose. Fear holds us back, and sometimes even fear doesn't make sense because how we would be afraid of something that we don't know, that might happen IN THE FUTURE!? Just giving it our thoughts and vibes will make it happen.
What I also love about the man is, his ability to be positive and cleaver to reverse any disadvantages or bad situations that are filled with weakness and fear, to look like he's the one in the stronger position even in the most disastrous catastrophic chaos moments. He can always see the bright side in any situation no matter how bad it is.
When your life is on the line, you'll know about your true self. Be forceful with Lion's Heart.

8. ♣"When you hit, hit hard. The blame is the same."♣
We might have to consider this saying in two scenarios, the first is more clear and that is if you ever felt that you're urged to hit someone for the right reasons of course, like you are defending someone who's weak enough to defend himself, you or someone else is being bullied or for the sake of your or someone else safety, as you are put in a situation like that, going by this quote is definitely very wise and the right decision to take, because what you wanna do is to take control of the situation and end it there while making sure that you have made your point clear enough so that you won't have to be obliged to go through such situation one more time, and you will be respected for that, especially that you're standing for a noble cause, and if you're going to be blamed, Hitting hard wouldn't make the blame any different.
The Second scenario is actually very user-friendly! You can literally replace the word (Hit) in this phrase and change it with any other word that you wish, and according to what is the word. You might find that there will be no need for blame. For example, "if you're going to love, love hard", "if you're going to succeed, succeed hard", "if you're going to fail, fail hard!", ".......Bang, bang Hard" I think you'll not be blamed on this one anyway....etc. Does it make sense that if you're up to anything in life, either you do it fully or don't bother, All-IN or nothing?!
Why don't you tell me in the comment section below, if you're to change (hit) with something else what would it be?
9. "Fixing what you have is better than waiting for what you don't."
"Focus on what you have is better than what you don't."
As much as these two look alike and that's why I decided to combine them together so we can discuss more quotes and more ideas. I guess they address different things or the same things but differently, and it's all about theories here guys, so let's start with "Fixing what you have is better than waiting for what you don't." Let's divide the quote into two parts "FIXING"/"Waiting". Fixing what you have and work on it to make it better and more durable is a good thing, it's like you're always upgrading your tools and make them shining and ready and that will smoothly lead you to bigger things. Waiting is not a good thing under any circumstances, you can wait as long as you like but usually, nothing will come your way by just waiting.
Now let's move on to "Focus on what you have is better than what you don't." One theory is that, if we wanna be happy we have to focus only on the things we have in our hands and feel grateful for all of these things, but things are not all the same...they're not all similar, these things might be people that you have around you let's say a wife or a husband, or it might be a car, money, job, passion....etc. I would understand it perfectly with people mostly because if you have a wife/husband and you're grateful for that, that might give you the chance to treat them better and spend more time all together with you and them enjoying every moment and being loyal. But with more materialistic things that might not work very well or as I said it might work in a little different way. If you have a car or some cash and you're thinking of a better car or more cash this is actually not a bad thing, this might be called ambition or day-dreaming, depends on how the thinking process goes. If you're thinking positively and actively like you're imagining every fucking detail as if you're already having the car and sitting inside it while you're driving, hearing the engine's roar and feeling it's power, or imagine your bank account with a lot more digits of cash flow, but pay attention we agreed on positive and Active thinking meaning that you're working for that in order for it to be real and achievable in your real-life and this is called wanting something bad enough, on the other hand, it might be a day-dreaming thing and that's all, in this case, this will be called wishing for something to happen or to have, but you don't want it bad enough to work for it and make it a do or die matter.
We all learn a lot from each other, I wanna know what are your theories and thoughts about these two? Let us all know down in the comment section below, and let's keep the fruitful conversation going!
10. Even if there is a 1% chance...Take your shot.
♣“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” ~ Wayne Gretzky♣
Wayne Douglas Gretzky CC is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player and former head coach. He played 20 seasons in the National Hockey League for four teams from 1979 to 1999. Nicknamed "The Great One", he has been called "the greatest hockey player ever" by many sportswriters, players, and the NHL itself. Gretzky is the leading scorer in NHL history, with more goals and assists than any other player. He was born on January 26, 1961. He is turning 59 years old today so we wanna wish him a blast and a happy anniversary, as a former professional ice Hockey player and former head coach, he meant every single word in this quote because that's what he was doing for ages as a profession. He knows that if you saw an opportunity even with very little chances and you decided to go for it, it might be the reason why you're very famous. He knows that if you took it you are just giving your next moment and your history a chance to be born and to live. Because by taking every chance that comes your way, at least you're opening the door for more outcomes than just doing nothing with ZERO results.
As long as you believe anything is possible and you have faith and confidence, one of two ways will be yours, but if you're stuck in your fears and in your head you will have nothing. If you saw a girl that took your breath away at first sight and you're obviously liking her and as soon as she gave you a second chance to breathe for a moment you just decided to make the first move and acted on the spot trying to approach her you might win the girl, but if you did nothing and didn't find the courage to get out of your head and of your own way, she's definitely lost. And a lot of times it is a one time chance for a couple of seconds and that's it...you'll never see her again! If you try you might not be knowing what will happen and that might be a little uncomfortable at first but with time you'll find it challenging, and that's the beauty of it, not knowing the income and not knowing what to expect is what gives taste to our lives, and make us learn quick reactions, adaptation, grow our wits, accept the idea that you might be embarrassed and be cool with it, learn not to take things very seriously and emotionally and be more fun and let us experience life. On the other hand, letting shots pass by means letting your life pass by hand in hand with every shot you don't take. Staying a prisoner inside your head will get you weaker and kill you slowly.
Man up and take your shots while you're still able, no one knows what is next.

11. ♣Herbert A. Simon on Finding Your Limits♣
“One finds limits by pushing them.” ~ Herbert Simon
The Sky Is The Limit, is definitely a very old saying because we have exceeded this limit 78 years ago in 1942 and we as humans went beyond that by sending the first Rocket into space. Limits will never be there if you don't put them! I can bet some people never even tested their limits so how on earth would they be able to push them?! Don't you feel curious to find your own limitations, if you have any??
Don't you think that limits are the opposite of Freedom anyway?!
12. ♣Virgil and Daring to Dare♣
“Fortune sides with him who dares.” ~ Virgil
Some people envy successful rich others for their great luck When in fact if they have to envy they should envy their Courage, boldness and their adventurous spirits that led them to be strong and adventurous enough to take risks that these envious people are so afraid to man-up and take them. As if they are certain to be safe like that, they never believed that there is no such thing in life called "playing Safe" or "being in the safe side", and that one might sleep and never wake up again, or as if no employee can find himself without a job at any moment.
If you still remember what we were saying about putting limitations in the quote right above this one, there is a story of how an elephant won’t try to break the simple rope that ties him down because as a baby they chained him up with a heavy chain. How many limits do you put on yourself that aren’t even real?!
That’s why Virgil, one of the greatest Roman Poets, wrote 2,000 years ago "Fortune sides with him who dares." It's a clever way of saying good fortune doesn’t come to us; we go to it by taking Calculated risks.
The way how I see it is that the only certain thing in life is death, and before my time is up I have to make sure that I really lived, and taking risks is one of the ways I have been taking my whole life and I'll keep doing so.
13. ♣William Butler Yeats on Striking the Iron♣
“Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” ~ William Butler Yeats.
This one by William Butler Yeats is pure Hardcore and Bad-Ass Style, and I believe it is one of the main Alpha traits. You can start now, all you have to do is to pick your Hammer and hit as hard as you possibly can in life, and don't fall into the mental trap of waiting for the perfect opportunity to present itself before you'll start to work hard, because it's easy to fall for such a malicious subtle trap that hunts us as victims all the time. Instead, be more subtle and tricky in your approach and work hard so that the perfect opportunity will present itself to YOU.
It's pretty interesting and amazing how everything will simply start to fall into place, open up and finally reveal itself for you when you start giving it your all every day. You'll see people, events, situations that matches what you're after and what you're seeking in life at this very moment because what you're in now is a result of what you have done before, life itself will be in alignment with what you want and when what you want appears in your life, only then you'll appreciate the work you did. Because unless you have done it none of your desires would have appeared.

14. ♣Mark Twain brilliant Quote!♣
The core lesson of this brilliant quote is, that the true power, fierceness, dominance are not necessarily a matter of physical size, yeah in some cases being bigger or having the physical privileges over someone might be an add on. But none of these will matter if at the opposite side you're facing a braver heart and a stronger mind with a much better mental/psychological attitude. So bottom line, be always willing, focused and determined to build yourself stronger in every aspect, that way life itself wouldn't break you.
15. ♣When it hurts – observe. Life is trying to teach you something♣
Jesus Christ has suffered the most and crucified by the hands of his own people, yet no one taught tolerance and forgiveness to the world more than him.
Pain and failures are meant to be the most things that will make us grow wiser and stronger and learn. Let us say that Pain is the master of all feelings, it is the teacher. In the process of pain, you go through pressure and pressure will guide and transform you, your brain and senses will engrave memories about this incident and the pain and all that you went through.
Have you ever paid attention that all the useful great things in life are not easy and fun to do, and the unuseful not necessarily healthy or good things are very easy, fun and enjoyable?! Let's take going to the gym and follow a strict healthy diet plan as an example. In this case, like most cases, you'll have to put a lot of work, time and effort upfront for the first 6 months to one year for you to see real progress and changes and that's very challenging for a lot of people, to be devoted and disciplined especially if the results will not be seen right away. And the total opposite of this would be countless time wasted on a couch watching live shows or playing video games while eating delicious junk food. To be honest yeah that looks a lot more fun, better and easy to do, but if having a fit healthy physique was one of a goal for you....surprise buddy, the exact same 6 months or year will pass in a glimpse before you know it and it will leave you wondering what would it be feeling and looking like if I started hitting the gym 6 months ago? And the tricky part here is that this procrastination works like moving sands, it will swallow you more and more as time passes and you'll be sedated long enough just to wake up too late that it will be harder 10 times to find your determination to start now.
What I believe is that pain and failures are feelings and experiences like any other feelings and experiences we feel or go through and they should not be treated or felt differently or separated and put aside from all others as they are bad an unwanted feelings, they need to be lived, felt, cherished and admired as well. Because in the end, when it will all come to an end, our last moments in life will be long Film tapes and images passing and displaying very quickly in front of us like our own tribute to ourselves, some will have regret more than others, some will have a clear vision of his/her all life. But what I like to think that all of us will be willing to do anything just to live even the hard, bad painful times we have passed on through our lives. At this time we will realize that every feeling was worth living, enjoying and experiencing. Whether it was love feelings, joy, excitement, happiness, success, heartbroken, failure, pain....etc, why??! because in the end, they all meant one word (LIFE), and most importantly feeling alive.
Life is the best teacher, have a more open adventurous heart to feel, learn and most of all live every lesson you'll get from life.
Life is also very short, it can not be taken for granted and it's not bound to young or old or any age, life can end out of the blue for anyone. Try to make something out of it, that will make you go knowing you lived your life fully and uniquely.
16. ♣Each new chapter of our lives requests an old part of us to fall and a new part of us to rise♣
Balance folks, it is called balance or sacrifice. This is one of the rules life is played by, and it's not a human thing only the whole universe play with this rule. Like when a big forest somewhere on the planet goes all in fire by nature's doing, nature has to sacrifice a lot of green for huge fires, for oceans to be there huge grounds has to be sacrificed, for you to buy a new car you have to sacrifice an amount of money that was by itself made by you again sacrificing things like time and effort, and the list goes on and on...everything transforms into other different forms and shapes in order to turn into other different things.
So in all our transformation phases throughout life, we're letting things go for other things to take place. We drop and pick, drop and pick, drop and pick. Drop your childhood to pick your teenage, then drop your teenage to pick your manhood, then leave your manhood for old age. Each and every one of these is a chapter, but this is just the bigger frame of a picture, inside the picture there are much more details. Literally any decision you might consider taking can put you in a different chapter and a turning point in your life, and some chapters are longer than others. One chapter might be a journey, and another one might be short as a finger clap. You decided to end a relationship, you decided to start one, you decided to get married or divorced, you decided to quit your job.......endless scenarios.
What we should really focus on here is what type of transformations, replacements or chapters we put ourselves in, like if you suddenly decided to get yourself out and walk away from a very sad, depressing dark time you were letting yourself hanging in for a while and you said to yourself no more of this, I'm done. You just got yourself out from a chapter and moved to another one and this is obviously a good example of the transformations or replacements we might consider initiating in our lives.
Focus on chapters that will make you move forward and grow not backward and diminish.
17. ♣“If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place"♣
Actually, this quote alone has too much to it that makes it worthy to be discussed in a separate article all alone, but let's try to cover a couple of it Gems here.
When it comes to taking actions people are one of two things, either Hunters or preys. Would you prefer to be the executor or the executed? There is always more than enough room for doers in life than for people who chose to give up on themselves and be passive, these people are just waiting for their lives to just end as quick as possible.
Another message from this quote is one of my favorite wake-up calls because I used to be stuck in it as a world champion! (Procrastination), throughout my life, I over abused this word and I wish I could go back with time to do something about it, but time is so precious to be bribed. So don't wait for the perfect moment, time, situation or whatever to make it perfect, because it will never come..instead clear your mind, put your armor and make the moment perfect, be always ready. Some chances come once in life and you have to be there awakened to Hunt it when it comes at the right time.
I could go on and on writing, because I'm writing from the heart and because all of this relates to me on very deep levels. I really wish I could shake everyone who's reading this, as I wished anyone would've grabbed my shoulders and shaken me up along time ago to gather myself and put my shit together but anyway, we're in the world of now and everything happens for a reason, right?!
18. ♣Would you like you, if you met you?♣
Young boys and girls, mature men and women. We all have our insecurities and if we didn't have them we've been anything but humans. Men who wish they're taller, beefier, more handsome, richer...women who wish they had bigger boobies, slimmer, curvier, more rounded ass or whatever the heck it might be, we all have these same ideas that cross our minds and if I said it's easy to control these thoughts I'll be lying, I know it's not. These thoughts crossing our minds by itself it's not a crime! But what might be a real crime would be not knowing your precious values and beauty (your worth), It's a crime when these ideas take total control over your head and make you obsessed with them as if you're pointing to all who's around you that you have small titties, you're fat, you're blablabla...and make yourself look like you hate yourself for it.
Despite the fact that some of these insecurities might have solutions and things that you can do about it, if it is that big of a deal for you, all you're doing is that you're putting yourself in a much more depressing, humiliating state of mind and you're bringing yourself more discomfort, and I would be thunderly shocked if anyone who does this, would ever wonder with amazement why others don't love me or even respect me if that's the case.
Instead of burning yourself out on these kinds of thoughts and inner-feelings, you should be too busy loving and enjoying yourself and if you find this hard to do. then you should be burning yourself out trying to learn or figure out how to do so! To be honest I believe that everyone should do a (liked/dislike) and (strength/weakness) tables for him/herself. And start to track everything he/she likes or dislikes about him/herself, and to see what does she or he feels as her/his weaknesses and strengths point so she/he knows where to start and what to start with.
We must always work on ourselves anyway, and we can work on any and every little, ridiculous, insignificant and embarrassing things. It can be your laugh, your voice, your facial expressions it can be anything from the smallest things to the biggest ones. Do that until you would enjoy your own company and really love yourself.
Do that until you would like you if you met you.
19. ♣Nelson Mandela on the Seemingly Impossible♣
Here we are with one of the quotes classics, along time ago the world was a young fertilized ground for the concept of Impossible. Who would've imagined that we can invent all what we are today?! Cars, mobile phones, planes and spaceships, the internet, Robots, and Artificial intelligence and all of these are just a drop of water in ocean-sized inventions, as the world moves forward and grows older the concept of impossible diminishes and the concept of Technologies and possibilities grows. And that just proves to us one thing, what our mind can perceive our realities will see.
So on a lot smaller scale, the same law works for each and every one of us. Just believe in yourself and let your mind perceive what you want no matter how hard, imaginary or unreal it might look to you, you might be our next genius! All of that wasn't possible in the past but we're living in it now.
20. "Give me some mud, and I will paint you a woman's flesh."
~ Eugene Delacroix
We often get disgusted by mud, we defame it as the famous American rapper Rza said "How can you defame mud when such a beautiful flower grows from it?", yet we find pure fine gold in the mud, the healthiest grains and foods come from the mud. A lot of people tend to take things, other people and even situations only from the outside without really giving themselves solid, relevant and unshallow judgment measures. Don't get Deceived by appearances, take a deeper look into things, don't see them from one angle only. Poetical things can be born from chaos, like great successes can come out from failures. Be optimistic and try to see the beauty and the good in everything around you, you can build amazing things from nothing. If you're in a dark place in your life now try to find the tiny point of light at the end of this darkness, darkness doesn't have to be your reality in your coming future you need to push all your determination power keys right now and to get fired up with hope and desire to get out of that road, you have spent all your depression and feeling downtime and now it's time to not give up and get back up on your feet
Ladies and Gentlemen, take a look at the definition of Insanity.
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." ~ Albert Einstein
Who's better than Albert Einstein to end the article with?! The last three quotes will be Albert's portion to teach us things in life.
In this quote, Einstein was talking about common sense actually and let us be honest here. It's not only insane it's stupid and a dumb thing to do the same thing 10 times and we're still hoping for a different outcome or result, 1+1 will always be = 2 and if I did the exact same calculation over and over and over and over again it will never give me 4 or 2.5 as result, it will always be 2.
But yet as easy and simple as it looks like, we tend to do the same thing over and over again sometimes and I can't imagine that we do so while we're hoping for a different outcome because we agreed that this is retarded, but maybe it's just an act of laziness, fear or maybe stubbornness. We have all passed by this period of time in our lives that we were thinking that bullshitting who's around us and even ourselves that we're doing a lot of things while in reality there is almost nothing done. Denzel Washington said "Remember that just because you're doing a lot more doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done. Don't confuse movement with progress."
What about a little change now? What if we start doing a lot less but with more productivity and progress, and what about if we go back in time to count our numerous failures, and see if they were that much of a number or it was just a duplication of doing the same thing over and over again without learning or changing anything in how we were doing it until we believed that this is it, and this is us, we can't do better than that and we have to accept that we're just losers and that this is our place in life. NO, Definitely not. YOU are the one who chooses so choose wisely! Choose not to be the victim, understand that as long as you're breathing you're still in the game and you still have a chance to do things right and that every day is a new start so if your day didn't go as planned, this is not a reason for you to be whining about it, just accept that and be prepared for the next day because every day is a brand new start.
How many of you agree and how many disagree, and why in both cases?
♣Imagination Vs Knowledge♣
This is like a Father saying "Loving your children is more important than parenting them" it's just an example that I just made up to start with, it's not a real quote. What I tried to illustrate here is that if you're reading one of these two for the first time, and at least I'm sure that this is the first time to read the second one because it's not a quote, as I'm sure I'm not that cool or influencing at least I'm not that cool or influencing Yet for my words to be quoted, so just to end this continued none sense that I'm saying right now and get back to what I was saying, I also hope you guys have a high level of sense of humor or I'll be (F). The resemblance between the two might come from that we can pretty much consider Albert Einstein the father of knowledge and sciences, or at least one of many fathers.
Einstein himself chose (Imagination) over Knowledge!! so that means Imagination is a very big deal. The more you have a strong vivid imagination the more likely to be something big in this life. All along history, we can count countless characters that have been perceived, identified and accused to be insane and these same exact characters are the ones we look up to till this day, either they're long gone or still living. What is more ironic though that I find that most of these characters we're found useless and hopeless cases in the eyes of the people that accused them, in the very exact same thing that made them Brilliant characters that ever lived!
Isn't that funny?!
Imagination yet again.
♣One more time.♣
Last but not least, the last quote of this article. Yet still with Einstein, emphasizing on (Imagination) as key for the last time. We can consider it as a completion of the quote above but with a lot more to say than what has been already said.
This quote is a justification for the above, Imagination is our compass for what is going to come next in our lives. If we're imagining the right things in the present we will be at the right place in the future, all we must do is to pick our thoughts and imaginations accordingly.
Legends like Einstein and a lot of others before him knew the secrets of (success, prosperity, abundance and wealth). They knew the things that are now becoming a trend in the form of Quotes, Motivational speeches, and YouTube Videos...etc. This kind of information was not revealed or been valid that wide unless recently, but it became decently viral for the past 10 years or so. And that means that we all know how to find these secrets easily and get access to them now or anytime we want, and no one should have any excuses to follow in the footsteps of these Legends and also leave his own. We all know it's easier said than done, but who also said that taking such an interesting, exciting journey that we will learn from and change all the way till the end is not a good idea?! Don't leave yourselves hocked to temporary pleasures guys.
Would you prefer more to live a temporary pain for permanent happiness and pleasure or the other way around?
Let me know if you would like us to discuss that together as the topic for the next article.
Maybe there is more but I'll Stick with these, what are yours?

♣Last words and a Wish♣
I couldn't be ever more excited and passionate about blogging as I am now, and the most enticing part is that it wasn't ever been much of a
clear vision or target to be a blogger because I can say I didn't even know what bloggers really experience with every article they write and
how good it might feel to engage and connect with amazing other like-minded people, so I hope I can achieve that by earning your trust and
winning as much hearts as I can.
I wish that you have found this article useful or at least kind of a little tool to lit up your fire and get you back on the right track, so I'm gonna be first one to follow my own article and use on of it quotes “If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place", and gather all my courage wills to ask you directly to help me in my Blogging kick-off.
So if you liked this article and you decided to like, follow, share and comment, that would be awesome and it'll make my day!
P.s: Always feel free to share your thoughts, questions, and suggestions for ideas and topics to discuss in coming Blog posts, Cheers.

Being nervous around others especially the opposite sex is normal, so just knowing that Humans as a general rule get butterflies in their stomach and get nervous sometimes in social interactions will make your anxiety and panic slow down just knowing you're not the only elephant in the room and that we're all alike. But some work on themselves and some don't, one of the best techniques you can start doing is to slow down and breath deeply and always be in the moment, start to be cooler and when someone talks to you don't be so eager to just reply, give yourself 10 seconds to organize your ideas and look more relaxed. You can work on what makes your self-confidence low like if you think it's your look, your body, your clothes....etc. Just make sure you're groomed all the time and that you're taking good care of your personal hygiene. Lastly around women, just be yourself and know that being funny is one easy way to be reliable and welcomed, so even if you're not that funny but you're being authentic your jokes will come out more genuine and more YOU. Women will at least respect that and sees it as a good thing. Just try to work on these things, at first it's not gonna be that easy and natural as it should be, but with time you'll get better and your subconscious will start to absorb it so you will start to worry less as it will start to be on autopilot mood. If you stick around I'll make this topic in an article!
