I guess i did something different then an essay. I have problems with low selfesteem and so I went to my local dollar store and found some small self laminating business cards. then i went home and look at all of the magazines I had for words that did two things. one was things I could do and the other thing were words that decribed who i was in a positive way. I am taking a picture of both of these to put on mypage so please feel free to go look and tell me what you think. then they are going back in my wallet where i look at them everyday.

One of the things that frightens many individuals in life is a person who knows what they want. It is a common sight to hear a note of criticism or resentment directed towards people who exhibit this knowledge in their own life. Not only people of prominence or especially assertive types, but in general, being assured about one's desires is regarded by many in society as ambitious, selfish, ruthless, egotistical etc etc. This list might well go on for some time. Of course there are those who seem to be the genuine article but in reality are not, perhaps being compulsive about appearing to be self-assured to others. Nonetheless there are those who are self-assured and desirous and who do express this frequently in the way that they live their life and in the things that they do. Being in the presence of these people may feel threatening but they can also be an inspiration. Being afraid of such people or feeling that if one was like this, society would pour scorn upon us, is a convenience rather than a reason for maintaining a sense of not knowing.

To be prepared to know what you want in life is a significant thing because it carries with it the implication that once acknowledged, you are committed to going after it. Some might think it safer not to know. This can hold an individual back in that it can really prevent a solid commitment to something more. It also follows, that if an individual needs to protect themselves from their own desires, that individual will also be required to know as little as possible about what other people want, especially perhaps a partner.

Being open to knowing what others want in life has as significant an implication as in one's own life. One way to become much more prepared to do this is to allow assertiveness and the expression of desire in all people one comes into contact with and to embrace this as inspiration for oneself. There is a great sense of joy to be had from being free to love life and to be able to express this love openly in the presence of others. And this will be my lifes turn around. I am aware of what i want now ...

No more eating fast foods and junk foods and staying up late.


INSPIRE ONES SELF TO INSPIRE OTHERS.

my motivational essay is about Equality.

Here Goes!







----------------------------------------
--





Equality

Equality is traditionally thought of as being a physical comparison between two or more things or people. However, it has become increasingly obvious that equality will always be subjective. The only effective way to achieve equality is to make of oneself an equal, and the actual circumstances will take care of themselves.

Dealing with issues of equality with one person implies a willingness to deal with your equality with everyone. However, there is a rather important point to be made about equality. Equality cannot result from physical equality or indeed instigating a common level in physical terms, whereby everyone is accorded the same kind of status. Equality is very much demonstrated in how you are. Sometimes it can seem as though we are striving for equality by trying to regard everyone the same way, however, equality cannot be forced, nor is it always a product of relating to everyone the same way. People are different, circumstances are different and in essence the way we relate to people must be appropriate to these factors. It can see like a fine line between feeling the same toward others and trying to force equality by acting the same.

Feeling the same and acting the same are not the same, for appropriateness changes the requirement for our actions. It is not always appropriate to treat everyone in the same manner. Different people require different behavior, even though it is essential to feel the same towards everyone and to have the same objectives. Equality and openness are constant. They do not change as we relate to different people. These things should always be the same. However, equality, true equality, demands that an individual be open to sensing appropriateness and differences and being prepared to go along with what is right. The trap for many individuals who seek equality is wrongly perceiving that thinking and logic can produce equality. Thinking only interrupts the individual's ability to be equal. When thinking forms the basis of our relating, no purity can possibly have influence. Ideally, in the pursuit of equality, we must learn to act upon feeling, because logic will only confuse the issue and see that equality is interfered with.
