15 Facts About Life That Are Hilariously True, Some Of Them Are Thought-Provoking

These graphs can tell you the truths of our lives, some of them are really hilarious ones while the others will lead you to carefully think about the way we lead our lives these days.

1. How Long A Human Can Live Without…

    Since when we got harder to live without the internet? Sometimes I do wonder how we used to live without the internet, didn’t we still figure out how to communicate with people without our smartphones or computer, and how to find the way to a place without GPS?

    2. The Biggest Lies On The Internet

      Admit it, it happens all the time. What you say in a text message is not exactly what you mean or how you feel. Did you really laugh out really loud the last time you typed LOL?

      3. Birthday Greetings On Your Facebook Wall

        The awkward moment you forgot where you met that person who just wrote happy birthday on your Facebook wall – does this ring a bell to you?

        4. Instagramatical Hierarchy of Needs

          What’s the intention of showing edited photos on Instagram? What’s the need that people crave for?

          5. About Online Dating

            On one hand, people encourage you to go online dating because it’s really common nowadays; on the other hand, you’re reluctant to tell others that your date was met online because you don’t want others to think that you’re not good at networking in real life.

            6. How Long “Never” Lasts

            never lasts

              Above are just some of the common cases in life, I bet you can think of more examples in which you said you’d never do something again but then oops you did it again! The first time you do something wrong may be a mistake, but it’s your choice if you’re doing this for the second time.

              7. Salary Index

                What was your aspiration when you were small? Why it’s changed as you grow up? Reality is kind of cruel sometimes as shown in the above graph, but I still believe that with your persistence and passion, you’ll succeed with what you like doing one day.

                8. Content of Women’s Magazines

                  Okay, so the media is telling you to be yourself and accept your faults, but at the same time things about how to lose weight are all over it. Women (and men), do you realize how much the media’s shaping your daily life?

                  9. The Evolution of Digital Media

                    What are we reading now? Advertisements or real knowledge and information? Since when ads have been more important than knowledge?

                    10. Your Knowledge of The Traffic Laws

                      This applies not only to knowledge of the traffic laws, in fact, we lose most of our knowledge as we graduated (especially if your career is nothing related to what you studied before). But is knowledge supposed to be lost in our brain this way?

                      11. Guide To Laundry Symbols

                        I think this is a sweet one! I know everyone of us should really know all these laundry guide symbols, but mom really has already known these all. We love our moms, don’t we?

                        12. Hollywood Movies

                          Robocop, Man of Steel, Amazing Spiderman….you know what I’m talking about here. I thought we’re getting smarter, where has our creativity gone?

                          13. Job Titles

                          job title

                            Sometimes, I do wonder the reason of having such complicated job titles these days. Is it really because of the change of job nature or the way we see job titles now?

                            14. Opening Hours of Banks

                              This really is one of the funniest things. Only those who don’t need to work full-time can go to the bank. Who do banks serve?

                                This is just a joke of course, but I bet most of us would love to have a calendar week like this.

                                How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                                How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

                                As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

                                “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

                                When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

                                Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

                                We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

                                But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

                                So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

                                It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

                                1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

                                Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

                                2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

                                This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

                                You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

                                3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

                                This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

                                4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

                                How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

                                So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

                                If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

                                And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
