People With Tattoos Are Not Necessarily Bad People

People With Tattoos Are Not Necessarily Bad People

Many think that those people that have tattoos around the skin of their bodies are extremely “bad” or “awful.” However, this is not true at all. Instead, people with tattoos can be some of the nicest people out there. Many people consider someone with a tattoo to be “taboo” but the truth is that they are normal people just like anybody else.

Here is why these individuals are truly great. You can learn a lot from them.

1. They are strong from the heart.

These people have gone through a lot in life. They have passed ordeal after ordeal. Tattoos are a gateway or an expression of the pain they have gone through and embalmed in themselves. Next time, don’t think just because someone has a tattoo, that they are bad. Think that they may have gone through some painful time in their life that they want to keep close to them and never forget about.

I know someone very close who has a tattoo on her wrist after losing her brother. She is the strongest female I know. Know that these people are genuinely nice and strong and resilient from the heart.

2. They embrace themselves and what life throws at them.

Because these people have gone through so much as stated in the previous subheading, they embrace everything that life chooses to throw at them. When they do this, they may feel that they are at loss with life or maybe they can control a bit of things around them, and tattoos are a portal to this thought process. They are not afraid and this leads us to our next topic of interest. Life is not black and white any longer for such individuals; life is about the grey, the in between colors and arrays also. So, these tattooed individuals have learn to embrace not only themselves, but people everywhere around them.

Life truly is about accepting and individuals with tattoos have done exactly that.

    3. They are fearless.

    It is painful to make a tattoo. However, these people have embraced both pain and fear and can take whatever you throw at them. They are not scared of being hurt or getting hurt because they have gone through the ordeals and dealt with them already. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Those with tattoos no longer have fear because it is extremely painful to get a tattoo. Those who agree to get them have an endurance to pain, so you can count on them to no longer be afraid. Even if they are a little bit, they have learned to tame it to a great degree. This is something that can also be learned form those people who have tattoos.

      4. They express themselves through art.

      Instead of keeping all the turmoil and pain inside of them, people with tattoos have learnt to express their emotions through their art. Expression is the best form of art and we must embrace people with tattoos. They are beautiful people and we need to realize and understand that. Expression is a form of stress release. People with tattoos are wonderful at releasing their tension their getting tattoos.

        5. They value life.

        These people significantly value what life is about! Something that holds special places inside of their hearts, they usually engrave on their skins, so they will always remember something to their heart, forever close to themselves. I think that is one of the most beautiful things possible. Wow, these people are truly wonderful. They are genuinely honest and have come to terms with nature and life. Life should be valued and that is something I have learned through them.

        3 Techniques for Setting Priorities Effectively

        3 Techniques for Setting Priorities Effectively

        It is easy, in the onrush of life, to become a reactor – to respond to everything that comes up, the moment it comes up, and give it your undivided attention until the next thing comes up.

        This is, of course, a recipe for madness. The feeling of loss of control over what you do and when is enough to drive you over the edge, and if that doesn’t get you, the wreckage of unfinished projects you leave in your wake will surely catch up with you.

        Having an inbox and processing it in a systematic way can help you gain back some of that control. But once you’ve processed out your inbox and listed all the tasks you need to get cracking on, you still have to figure out what to do the very next instant. On which of those tasks will your time best be spent, and which ones can wait?

        When we don’t set priorities, we tend to follow the path of least resistance. (And following the path of least resistance, as the late, great Utah Phillips reminded us, is what makes the river crooked!) That is, we’ll pick and sort through the things we need to do and work on the easiest ones – leaving the more difficult and less fun tasks for a “later” that, in many cases, never comes – or, worse, comes just before the action needs to be finished, throwing us into a whirlwind of activity, stress, and regret.

        This is why setting priorities is so important.

        3 Effective Approaches to Set Priorities

        There are three basic approaches to setting priorities, each of which probably suits different kinds of personalities. The first is for procrastinators, people who put off unpleasant tasks. The second is for people who thrive on accomplishment, who need a stream of small victories to get through the day. And the third is for the more analytic types, who need to know that they’re working on the objectively most important thing possible at this moment. In order, then, they are:

        1. Eat a Frog

        There’s an old saying to the effect that if you wake up in the morning and eat a live frog, you can go through the day knowing that the worst thing that can possibly happen to you that day has already passed. In other words, the day can only get better!

        Popularized in Brian Tracy’s book Eat That Frog!, the idea here is that you tackle the biggest, hardest, and least appealing task first thing every day, so you can move through the rest of the day knowing that the worst has already passed.

        When you’ve got a fat old frog on your plate, you’ve really got to knuckle down. Another old saying says that when you’ve got to eat a frog, don’t spend too much time looking at it! It pays to keep this in mind if you’re the kind of person that procrastinates by “planning your attack” and “psyching yourself up” for half the day. Just open wide and chomp that frog, buddy! Otherwise, you’ll almost surely talk yourself out of doing anything at all.

        2. Move Big Rocks

        Maybe you’re not a procrastinator so much as a fiddler, someone who fills her or his time fussing over little tasks. You’re busy busy busy all the time, but somehow, nothing important ever seems to get done.

        You need the wisdom of the pickle jar. Take a pickle jar and fill it up with sand. Now try to put a handful of rocks in there. You can’t, right? There’s no room.

        If it’s important to put the rocks in the jar, you’ve got to put the rocks in first. Fill the jar with rocks, now try pouring in some pebbles. See how they roll in and fill up the available space? Now throw in a couple handfuls of gravel. Again, it slides right into the cracks. Finally, pour in some sand.

        For the metaphorically impaired, the pickle jar is all the time you have in a day. You can fill it up with meaningless little busy-work tasks, leaving no room for the big stuff, or you can do the big stuff first, then the smaller stuff, and finally fill in the spare moments with the useless stuff.

        To put it into practice, sit down tonight before you go to bed and write down the three most important tasks you have to get done tomorrow. Don’t try to fit everything you need, or think you need, to do, just the three most important ones.

        In the morning, take out your list and attack the first “Big Rock”. Work on it until it’s done or you can’t make any further progress. Then move on to the second, and then the third. Once you’ve finished them all, you can start in with the little stuff, knowing you’ve made good progress on all the big stuff. And if you don’t get to the little stuff? You’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you accomplished three big things. At the end of the day, nobody’s ever wished they’d spent more time arranging their pencil drawer instead of writing their novel, or printing mailing labels instead of landing a big client.

        3. Covey Quadrants

        If you just can’t relax unless you absolutely know you’re working on the most important thing you could be working on at every instant, Stephen Covey’s quadrant system as written in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change might be for you.

        Covey suggests you divide a piece of paper into four sections, drawing a line across and a line from top to bottom. Into each of those quadrants, you put your tasks according to whether they are:

        1. Important and Urgent
        2. Important and Not Urgent
        3. Not Important but Urgent
        4. Not Important and Not Urgent

          The quadrant III and IV stuff is where we get bogged down in the trivial: phone calls, interruptions, meetings (QIII) and busy work, shooting the breeze, and other time wasters (QIV). Although some of this stuff might have some social value, if it interferes with your ability to do the things that are important to you, they need to go.

          Quadrant I and II are the tasks that are important to us. QI are crises, impending deadlines, and other work that needs to be done right now or terrible things will happen. If you’re really on top of your time management, you can minimize Q1 tasks, but you can never eliminate them – a car accident, someone getting ill, a natural disaster, these things all demand immediate action and are rarely planned for.

          Advertising

          You’d like to spend as much time as possible in Quadrant II, plugging away at tasks that are important with plenty of time to really get into them and do the best possible job. This is the stuff that the QIII and QIV stuff takes time away from, so after you’ve plotted out your tasks on the Covey quadrant grid, according to your own sense of what’s important and what isn’t, work as much as possible on items in Quadrant II (and Quadrant I tasks when they arise).

          Getting to Know You

          Spend some time trying each of these approaches on for size. It’s hard to say what might work best for any given person – what fits one like a glove will be too binding and restrictive for another, and too loose and unstructured for a third. You’ll find you also need to spend some time figuring out what makes something important to you – what goals are your actions intended to move you towards.

          In the end, setting priorities is an exercise in self-knowledge. You need to know what tasks you’ll treat as a pleasure and which ones like torture, what tasks lead to your objectives and which ones lead you astray or, at best, have you spinning your wheels and going nowhere.

          These three are the best-known and most time-tested strategies out there, but maybe you’ve got a different idea you’d like to share? Tell us how you set your priorities in the comments.
