The Definition Of Beauty By The Blind Will Completely Change How You See Beauty

The Definition Of Beauty By The Blind Will Completely Change How You See Beauty

If you can read this post, that means you can see with your eyes. How do you see beauty with your eyes?

Watch how these blind people see beauty with their eyes closed. Their perspectives on beauty are more rational than us who can see.

 

A person is beautiful because they’re true to themselves.

Beauty is an experience of living, of finding joy. Joy is the most beautiful thing in the world.

Beauty should be something easy to achieve. You don’t need to put on makeup, have plastic surgery, have skinny or muscular body, or wear fashionable clothes. You just need to be who you are and live a happy life.

Beauty is not defined by one’s appearance, it’s defined by the way they lead their lives.

Most of us can see, but are blinded by the fast-changing materialistic world which is mostly shaped by the media. Blind people can’t see, but are never blinded by the standards set by the society because they see and feel with their hearts.

How many of us can really see with our hearts?

“Nature didn’t need an operation to be beautiful. It just was.” – Scott Westerfeld

“Taking joy in living is a woman’s best cosmetic.” – Rosalind Russell

“To all the girls that think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, its society who’s ugly.” – Marilyn Monroe

“Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.” – Saint Augustine

“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” – Roald Dahl

“A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.” – Anne Roiphe

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.

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?”

“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!
