    Great Write. To make our lives beautiful like art, we need to think outside the box of society. The culture today wants to limit us to be like drones or mindless sheep and follow the herd. There is no beauty there. I find the some of the greatest minds of those who still have their hearts of a child. Note: I did not say a mind of a child. The heart of a heart is limitless, with no borders. A child's imagination can solve any situation in the world. Yet, while growing up, society tells us to stop using this great gift and think in only one direction.
    Creativity is experimenting. Some people view it as failure. No, we just found another way that didn't work for us. "Try, Fail, Adjust, Try, Fail, Adjust,....., Succeed."

    #5 Wow, you have had it rough. Yes, I agree with a lot of what you mentioned. The original concept of Facebook 'was' a nice idea, but sadly turned into a horrific abusive, social bullying, overly self absorbed network. The problem with my line of work is that I must be available on FB for work reasons and family connections due to me living in another country. I thank you @ChasWyatt for reading my post and sharing your thoughts.

    I read the book, "Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Mezrich long before the movie, "The Social Network", which was based on the book came out and it was an excellent story, but, Mezrich is a good writer. My brother tried to goad me into joining FB, but, I had no desire to expose myself to people from my past whom I didn't wish to be connected to in the real world, let alone in a virtual reality. I really think Zuck is an a***ole, which is reflected on the platform itself. I liked the book and the movie, but, have no use for the site itself. I don't have much family left, so that reason to be there doesn't apply to me. I was at a music event and a couple of people in front of me were reconnecting that hadn't seen each other in awhile. One mentioned connecting to her on FB, and her friend said, "Oh, I quit Facebook; I was starting to hate people."

    This is why I have less than 40 friends on Facebook and feel like that is too many.

    If I wouldn't take time to connect with someone on occasion in a meaningful dialog, why add them unless I am trying to drive my numbers up to point blank use these people for my own self desires of getting a head in life using them for business purposes but never actually taking a personal interest in them.

    To me I would be treating them as nothing more than a mechanism to feed my life and that makes me feel inhuman in the way I am looking at living breathing people.

    I think part of the problem is people using facebook for business.

    Until recently, I refused to join Facebook. It's frivolous nature didn't appear at all inviting.
    Besides, I have two ex-wives who have no business knowing my status of any kind.
    Fortunately, it hasn't been an issue.
    I joined to share some photos taken at my 40th class reunion.
    It's been great reconnecting with classmates and relatives I'd lost track of over the years.
    Most of it is still frivilous, but there's some funny stuff being posted, too.
    So far, so good.

    Lovely buzz @Kathy Finnerty Thomas, and well said, @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. It reminds me of what Wayne Dyer wrote years back. (Miss him ever so much)

    "If we practice gratitude as opposed to maintaining an attitude of entitlement, we’ll automatically extend inspiration wherever we go. Being grateful helps remove the influence of our egos, which is certain that we’re better than everyone else. An attitude of gratitude allows us to adopt the radical humility that’s very persuasive in helping others connect with the Spirit that unites us all. Gratitude and humility send signals to all who meet us that we’re all connected to something larger than life itself."
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    21/11/2016 #1 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    Great buzz, @Kathy Finnerty Thomas. I can honestly say that I made a choice a number of years ago to take control of my own mind by refusing to let the mainstream media have access and this space makes so much room for the tangible practice of gratitude in the areas where I actually can create impact.

    And one more confession. I tried the standard gratitude exercises and didn't stick with them. Then I made my day about finding ways to express gratitude to other people and that small tweak made a huge shift in my life. Now the gratitude flows naturally, because I have found a community with the same values and it gets reinforced day after day.

    I appreciate that you took the initiative to pull together your thoughts and practices around gratitude. It is all about never losing our reverence for the life we have to live.

    My Secrets to SPEED READING - How to Read Faster and Learn from Books Quicker

    By Practical Psychology - Published on Nov 20, 2016

    Want to learn how I read over 100 books in under a year? I’ll teach you my tips for speed reading and the methods I use to learn methods and concepts super quick in books. This is something that took me a while to learn, but I initially got it from Tai Lopez. I used to read every single word in a book, from front to back to consider me “reading” it. This was wrong, books are made with a couple great ideas, and rarely is every page filled with gold nuggets.

    I could go into tons of different eye movements and other technical stuff, but to save you time, a little tip is to hold the book out from your face a bit further than you probably normally do and to use your finger to guide your eyes. Holding it away might strain your eyes, but if you can do it, it will make your eyes have to move less in the long term. Try to find books with a bit larger font to reduce the eye strain associated with this tip. I still have trouble with this tip, but basically, when most people read, they say the words in their throat. Now, they might not make any sounds, but it has been scientifically proven that your throat muscles are activated. Many think this is because when we learn to read, we don’t read in our head, only to say the words out loud, and this is just a learning habit that stuck. Learning how to speed read means to get rid of this annoying peeve almost everyone has since they learned how to read.

    "Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong."

    The surprising truth about what motivates us. From author Daniel Pink, and his book DRiVE.

    bit.ly/1gNxOdQ (youtu.be/u6XAPnuFjJc)
    This lively RSA Animate has over 15M views. They adapted Dan Pink's talk at the RSA.

    It illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.

    See/get the book: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004P1JDJO/:
    "Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.

    Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation:

    *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives
    *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters
    *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves

    Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward.

    Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live."

    Change—real change—comes from the inside out. It doesn’t come from hacking at the leaves of attitude and behavior with quick fix personality ethic techniques. It comes from striking at the root—the fabric of our thought, the fundamental, essential paradigms, which give definition to our character and create the lens through which we see the world.

    LOL, I giggled all the way through this. To be fair, it's next to impossible to guide someone towards a meaningful life-changing experience in < 1000 words.

    Still, the idea that you can do anything you want is nice, but ludicrous. More accurately, to succeed at what you want just because you want it is ludicrous.

    Check out this blog share from LQ, a Motivational Philosopher - Educational Speaker- Lifestyle Trainer...

    Here's a sample, if you can take it ;p . . .

    ""
    JUST BE YOURSELF
    Authenticity is not something you just know about yourself, it is something you create about yourself. You are who you are because you have decided to be that way. ...
    Being authentic is a constant state of action, it is not a passive awareness. Your entire life has been spent becoming something through the influence of everything around you.
    ...
    The first thing you have to do to live authentically as yourself is to evaluate the choices you make on a daily basis and decide if they align with the sort of person you want to be.
    ...
    Don’t copy. That won’t help you become you. But you can emulate. Take aspects of their successes and fold them into your life and your experience and by doing so create a perfectly unique expression of the values that you honor and that make you, you. Only then can you go around and “just be yourself”.
