A Dad Turns His Two-Year-Old Girl’s Sayings Into Pictures Which Make People Smile

A Dad Turns His Two-Year-Old Girl’s Sayings Into Pictures Which Make People Smile

Being a parent to a young child, or to young children, you probably hear them say some of the most craziest things you’ve ever heard. You probably also find yourself saying things you never imagined yourself saying. This is also the case for a man named Martin Bruckner who finds inspiration for his art in the things he hears from his young daughter and the things he and his wife say to her. You need to check out these pictures that Martin has posted on his Tumblr, Spaghetti Toes, which he dedicated to posting these hilariously cute pictures, like the ones below.

This picture just further proves my point that moms have accessories for literally every occasion. Including emotion.

    I can only imagine the events leading up to Bruckner having to say this to his daughter. Some might ask why cake was put in the toilet.  Others might ask what kind of cake it was. These, my friends, are some deep questions that may go unanswered.

      If you ask me, cheese balls make my tummy feel worse. Things must be a lot simpler for a 2 year old.

        And to think I thought I was the only one. This is definitely one epic battle that I would pay good money to see. I just don’t understand how a little girl with such an imagination could be afraid of “make believe”.

          Did I miss this part of the movie? And why would she charge so much? Martin mentions on his blog that his daughter went through a phase where everything cost $60 dollars, so the price may be fairly consistent.

            This is another one that holds unanswered questions. Does she like them both together, or was she just listing all of her likes in no particular order?

              I just absolutely love this picture. I sure hope this little girl keeps the same attitude for when she is growing up. I hope my kids have the same attitude as well.

                Uh oh. She finally found out what makes moms superhuman. I’m sure Martin may be feeling a little uneasy, as I would be.

                  Unfortunately all of the creative things a toddler might say aren’t always so lighthearted. This is a very good representation for how a young kid expresses sadness.

                    But then you hear something that is so heartwarming, and puzzling all in the same sentence. This must have been inspired after an afternoon of playing dress up, or maybe Martin just has princess-like qualities. Either way you can’t help but to adore this picture.

                      The diagram really helped me understand how one’s elbow might have a sprained ankle. I think…

                        I don’t know if I am more scared for: Bruckner and his wife, or for the apple juice. I can imagine the look in his daughter’s eyes as these words came out of her mouth.

                        this apple juice is doomed

                          If she doesn’t end up being somebody one day like she said before, she at least has a back up plan.

                            How could you say no to her after that? She even said “Please”! This certainly goes to show that little girls know exactly what to say to get their dads to do whatever they want.

                              I’m sure there was a very good reason for the hot dogs to be yelled at. There are always two sides to every story, after all.

                                Martin Bruckner has many more pictures like these ones on his blog. He shows us just how much more fun the world can be through a toddler’s eyes. If you want to see more of Martin’s work, follow Spaghetti Toes on Tumblr.

                                Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

                                Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

                                What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

                                As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

                                The Success Mindset

                                Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

                                Advertising

                                The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

                                The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

                                The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

                                How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

                                How To Create a Success Mindset

                                People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

                                1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

                                How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

                                A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

                                There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

                                2. Look For The Successes

                                It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

                                3. Eliminate Negativity

                                You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

                                When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

                                4. Create a Vision

                                Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

                                If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

                                An Inspirational Story…

                                For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

                                What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
