    Here are the personalities for each of the fingers you use in your daily life! Your thumb is the one we use for everything, especially eating. Your index finger is the poindexter, it’s also the pointer. The middle finger is the thug, always bullying and being mean to others. Your ring finger is…confused. And your Pinky finger is the innocent and shy one.

      Everybody wanted to go to the moon when they were younger. Imagine if everyone got the opportunity to go to the moon, we’d all be living on the moon doing nothing. The moon would be filled with unemployed dreamers.

      Freedom Of Speech Tweet

      powerful images

        Because of twitter, our freedom of speech right is used to its fullest extent. As we go to different parts of the world, we see the twitter bird starts dying off as not everybody has that right.

        America’s tweety bird is alive and singing as we have our freedom of speech right. In other countries the bird is aware of what it says because its speech is watched. The bird starts flying away when in countries with temporary freedom of speech because it wants to avoid trouble. Then the bird turns into a robot in countries with manipulated freedom of speech. Now the robot bird is caged in when in countries with repressed speech. And finally, the bird is cooked having its freedom killed when in countries with no freedom of speech.

          Because of smartphones, this generation isn’t fully aware of life around them. We’ll roam the streets with our heads down looking at our phones and end up missing the opportunity of a lifetime because of it. We don’t live life day by day anymore because technology is taking up most of our time. We miss out on the real life as we enjoy simulations of life through electronics. Our phones have become the real life to us.

            Society Today

            powerful images

              Before, in the 20th century, people wanted to go outside and have fun but were tied down to their work and jobs. Their inner child would want to go out and experience life. Now in the 21st century we go outside as characters on games and have all of our fun inside with technology! Our inner child is doing the same thing we do in real life and doesn’t want to explore because as we grew up technology was always there!

                  Remember when you found out that Santa Claus wasn’t real? How did that make you feel? If you were like most kids, you were probably disappointed.

                  What about your first heartbreak? This made you realize that love doesn’t last forever. As you grew up, finished college and got your degree, you realized that having this piece of paper doesn’t really guarantee you a job in that profession.

                  Now as an adult you see that the ideals you had as you grew up were most likely false and you have the pay the price for believing in them. And what is that price? Your time. Now as an older person you saw how much time you’ve wasted and now your life is withering away!

                  How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

                  How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

                  If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

                  Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

                  So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

                  Advertising

                  1. Listen

                  Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

                  2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

                  Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

                  “Why do you want to do that?”

                  Advertising

                  “What makes you so excited about it?”

                  “How long has that been your dream?”

                  You need this information the help you with the following steps.

                  3. Encourage

                  This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

                  4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

                  After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

                  5. Dream

                  This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

                  6. Ask How You Can Help

                  Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

                  7. Follow Up

                  Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

                  Final Thoughts

                  By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

                  Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
