If There’s A Constant Joker Around You, Never Let Him/Her Go

If There’s A Constant Joker Around You, Never Let Him/Her Go

Do you have a friend who is always cracking jokes and making everyone laugh?

Do you love to spend time with them because they always make you feel happy?

If this is you, then you are a very lucky person. Constant jokers are often seen as the clown of the group, who is always laughing and joking. Some people might think they don’t have much depth, but often the funny friends are the wisest. They focus on making the people around them happy, and digging out the funniest parts in daily life.

It is reassuring to know that whatever is going on in your life, your friend will always make laughing easy. They deserve your appreciation and thanks – it is important to acknowledge the wonderful people who make you smile. Here are 8 things that you should thank the constant joker in your group for.

1. The joker will make you smile every day

Every time you see the constant joker you laugh. They always know exactly what to say to make you smile, and every conversation is filled with funny jokes and comments. You love having a friend that you know you will always have fun with, no matter what happens.

2. The joker is creative and witty

If you ask most writers which genre is hardest to write, most will say comedy. It takes a combination of creativity, wit and timing to make you laugh until your stomach hurts. The funny friend knows hundreds of fun, quirky facts, and often you find that you are learning while you are laughing.

3. The joker can handle awkward social situations

Most people hate awkward situations, but the joker always knows how to handle them. The funny friend knows that part of being funny is being able to see where other people are coming from. With a few good-hearted jokes, the whole group will start to relax and feel more confident.

4. The joker will calm you down when you are upset

If you are upset, the first person you ring is your funny friend. They are the only person who can make you smile while you are upset, and they always show you that the sadness will pass and that you will be happy again.

5. The joker is able to make you laugh when you are furious

When you are furious there are few people who you like to be around. Most people just make you feel angrier, but your funny friend has the ability to make you see sense. You appreciate that (and you know that they will crack a great joke about the person who has made you so angry.)

6. The joker is observant

They’re always looking out for funny things that they can poke fun at – for instance, your old Disney themed bed sheets. They have a keen sense of their surroundings and they are always looking out for absurdities in day-to-day life.

7. The joker helps you to believe in your future

Whenever you start to doubt yourself, the joker is there to reassure you. They may mostly make jokes, but they also have a serious side. They let you know that some mistakes might make you feel bad at the time, but within a few days you will both be laughing about it.

8. The joker helps you to grow as a person

Spending time with such a light-hearted, positive person has made you a better person. You are better at dealing with problems and being self-reliant, and you are eternally thankful to your friend for making your life even better.

6 Ways to Be a Successful Risk Taker and Take More Chances

6 Ways to Be a Successful Risk Taker and Take More Chances

I’ve stood on the edge of my own personal cliffs many times. Each time I jumped, something different happened. There were risks that started off great, but eventually faded. There were risks that left me falling until I hit the ground. There were risks that started slow, but built into massive successes.

Every risk is different, but every risk is the same. You need to have some fundamentals ready before you jump, but not too many.

It wouldn’t be a risk if you knew everything that was about to happen, would it? Here’re 6 ways to be a successful risk taker.

1. Understand That Failure Is Going to Happen a Lot

It’s part of life. Everything we do has failure attached to it. All successful people have stories of massive failure attached to them. Thinking that your risk is going to be pain free and run as smooth as silk is insane.

Expect some pain and failure. Actually, expect a lot of it. Expect the sleepless nights with crazy thoughts of insecurity that leave you trembling under the covers. It’s going to happen, no matter how positive you are about the risk you are about to take.

When failure hits, the only options are to keep going or quit. If you expect falling into a meadow of flowers and frolicking unicorns, then you’re going to immediately quit once you realize that getting to that meadow requires you to go through a rock filled cave filled with hungry bats.

2. Trust the Muse

Writing a story isn’t a big risk. It’s really just a risk on my time. So when I start writing a story, I’m scared it will be time wasted. Of course, it never really is. Even if the story doesn’t turn out fabulous, I still practiced.

When I’ve taken risks in my life, the successful ones always seemed to happen when I followed the muse. Steven Pressfield describes the muse,

“The Muse demands depth. Shallow does not work for her. If we’re seeking her help, we can’t stay in the kiddie end. When we work, we have to go hard and go deep.”

The muse is a goddess who wants our attention and wants us to work on our passion.

If you’re taking a risk in anything, it’s assumed that there is some passion built up behind that risk. That passion, deep inside you, is the muse. Trust it, focus on it, listen to it.

The most successful articles and stories I write are the ones I’ve focused all my attention on. There were no interruptions during their creative development. I didn’t check my phone or go watch my Twitter feed. I was fully engaged in my work.

Trust the muse, focus your attention on your risk, let the ideas and path develop themselves, and leave the distractions at the side of the road.

3. Remember to Be Authentic

Taking a risk and then turning into something you’re not, is only going to lead to disaster. Whether you are risking a new relationship or new opportunity, you must be yourself throughout the entire process.

How many times have you acted like you loved something just because the men or woman you just started going out with loved it?

For example, I’m not an office worker. I have an incredibly hard time working in a confined timeline (ie. 9-5). That’s why I write. I can do it whenever the mood strikes, I don’t have somebody breathing down my neck, telling me that I’m five minutes late, or missed a comma somewhere. I don’t have to walk on eggshells wondering if what I’m writing will get me fired or make me lose a promotion. I can just be myself, period.

One girlfriend didn’t understand that. She believed solely in the 9-5 motto, specifically something in human resources because that was a very stable job. I was scared for my future, but I stuck with the relationship because of my own insecurities and acted like I would do it to make her happy.

Here’s a tip: NEVER take away from your happiness to make somebody else satisfied (note I didn’t say happy).

Making somebody else happy will make you happy. Doing something to satisfy somebody is murder on your soul.

4. Don’t Take Any Risks While You’re Not Clearheaded

I’d been considering the risk for a couple weeks. It all sounded good. I was 22 and I could be rich in a couple of years. That’s what they were selling me, anyways.

One night, while at a house party with some friends, I found myself at a computer. A couple of my friends were standing nearby and asked me what I was doing. I told them I was considering starting my own business and it was only going to cost me $1,500.

Of course, when a bunch of drunk people are surrounded by more drunk people, things get enthusiastic. It sounded like the best business venture in the world to everybody, including me. So I signed up and gave them my credit card number.

A few painful months and close to $4,000 dollars lost later, I quit the business. I was young and fell into the pyramid scheme trap. It was an expensive drunk decision.

Drinking heavily and making decisions has a proven track record of failure. So when you have something important to decide, don’t let your emotions take over your brain.

5. Fully Understand What You’re Risking

It was the start of my baseball comeback. I got a tryout with a professional scout and killed it. After the tryout, he talked to my girlfriend and myself, making sure we understood I would be gone for up to 6 months at a time. That strain on the relationship could be tough.

We understood. I left to play ball, chose to stay in the city I played in, and a year later we broke up. Not because of baseball, see point 3 above. Taking big risks can have massive impacts on everything in your life from relationships to money. Know what you’re risking before you take the risk.

If you believe the risk will be worth it or you have the support you need from your family, then go ahead and make the leap.

6. Remember This Is Your One Shot Only

As far as we know officially, this is our one shot at life, so why not take some risks?

The top thing people are saddened by on their deathbeds are these regrets. They wish they did more, asked that girl in the coffee shop out, spoke out when they should have, or did what they were passionate about.

Don’t regret. Learn and experience. Live. Take the risks you believe in. Be yourself and make the world a better place.

Now go ahead, take that risk and be successful at it!
