If You Ignore This World Class Performer, You’ll Miss Essential Life Lessons

If You Ignore This World Class Performer, You’ll Miss Essential Life Lessons

My heart bleeds for this talented Filipino guy named Bryson Andres. He should not be performing in the streets! Anyway, when I saw his video, I instinctively know he will perform prestigious venues someday. Why?

Just by performing (Even if his stage is the streets), he teaches life lessons we can all learn from.

Creativity is a huge factor that can make you world class. His creativity shines in this performance. Since he is alone, he uses technology–he enlists the help of a loop gadget to record and play his accompaniment in real time as he performs–to compliment his act. The accompaniment was not prerecorded either and he uses the gadget as a musical instrument. Only a few can get away with this skill. He is truly world class!

Ingenuity can enhance your life. He utilizes the fingerboard of his violin as a premium percussion instrument to spice up his musical piece with beats. This enhances his gig, career, and of course his life as a whole.

Persistence will help you reach your goals. With the emotions he triggers with his music, there’s no denying he persistently practices every day; I surmise, for hours. He wouldn’t be able to perform impressively if he doesn’t practice as though his life depends on it. If he continues, there’s no doubt, pretty soon we’ll see him in a worldwide arena.

Passion spells the difference. On the first note, passion naturally radiates from his performance. I play the guitar, the piano, write my own songs, and have played with bands in the past. I know when a musician has passion in his heart based on how he plays. Besides, you can hear it from the music that emanates from him.

Finally, coordinating all these bits and pieces to create a masterpiece is pure genius.

Science Says People Who Talk To Themselves Are Geniuses

Science Says People Who Talk To Themselves Are Geniuses

I talk a lot to myself. It helps me to keep my concentration on the activity on hand, makes me focus more on my studies, and gives me some pretty brilliant ideas while chattering to myself; more importantly, I produce better works. For example, right now, as I am typing, I am constantly mumbling to myself. Do you talk to yourself? Don’t get embarrassed admitting it because science has discovered that those who talk to themselves are actually geniuses… and not crazy!

Research Background

Psychologist-researcher Gary Lupyan conducted an experiment where 20 volunteers were shown objects, in a supermarket, and were asked to remember them. Half of them were told to repeat the objects, for example, banana, and the other half remained silent. In the end, the result shown that self-directed speech aided people to find the objects faster, by 50 to 100 milliseconds, compared to the silent ones.

“I’ll often mutter to myself when searching for something in the refrigerator or the supermarket shelves,” said Gary Lupyan.

This personal experience actually made him conduct this experiment. Lupyan, together with another psychologist, Daniel Swigley, came up with the outcomes that those to talk to oneself are geniuses. Here are the reasons:

It stimulates your memory

When you are talking to yourself, your sensory mechanism gets activated. It gets easier on your memory since you can visualize the word, and you can act accordingly.[1]

It helps stay focused

When you are saying it loud, you stay focused on your task,[2] and it helps you recognise that stuff immediately. Of course, this only helps if you know what the object you are searching looks like. For example, a banana is yellow in colour, and you know how a banana looks like. So when you are saying it loud, your brain immediately pictures the image on your mind. But if you don’t know what banana looks like, then there is no effect of saying it loud.

It helps you clarify your thoughts

Every one of us tends to have various types of thoughts. Most make sense, while the others don’t. Suppose you are furious at someone and you feel like killing that person. Now for this issue you won’t run to a therapist, will you? No, what you do is lock yourself in a room and mutter to yourself. You are letting go off the anger by talking to yourself, the pros and cons of killing that person, and eventually you calm down. This is a silly thought that you have and are unable to share it with any other person. Psychologist Linda Sapadin said,[3]

“It helps you clarify your thoughts, tend to what’s important and firm up any decisions you are contemplating.”
