    Hi @Savvy Raj These are 5 of the best ways to help with self confidence ! Louise

    In the perfect world we live with a family that loves us and home is where our confidence is. This however is rare, either the home is torn asunder by economic pressures, or people try make their way to the outside world, and it is in this harsher environment that self-confidence becomes a survival skill. Counting on people who may or may not be the friends we think they are, needs us to rely more on prescription, then life is search for a happiness pill.

    This is where me and @Javier 🐝 beBee can enjoy our difference, because two of his greatest idols are much more like me and they are Sevy Ballestros and Rafeal Nadal. Where I share a commonality with @Javier 🐝 beBee is the root of working class life.

    Sevy pushed back at authority and wanted to change the game, and he was a kind of a daredevil. It is the dark and the light that made him. Nadal's greatest strengths stem from what some would see as a weakness, which is his capacity to doubt.

    This is what Nadal said about confidence in at Time magazine article :

    "On confidence .. http://time.com/108222/rafael-nadal-interview/

    β€œI doubt about myself,” Nadal says. β€œI think the doubts are good in life. The people who don’t have doubts I think only two things: arrogance or not intelligence.”

    Now if this reality does not fit the scenario of tips for confidence then don't shoot the messenger. I love a yin-yang life, I love healthy contradictions in character. I agree with Nadal but I am not him.

    Your wife Kate has a very nice site https://www.wakeupkate.com/ and she calls it a mindfulness meditation consultancy. I generally assumed meditation to be mindfulness, so it will be interesting to discern what the actual difference is. Moreover one of our club students is engaging in a speech in a couple of weeks about meditation, so this is a timely buzz in that regard.

    Silence is Golden. The control we need to achieve quietude is humongous. But great ideas and thoughts are born during our silence ans disconnect from all the commotion around us. Sometimes Control and silence make great partners and should go hand in hand.

    Never felt joy, not even thought it existed until one day I saw a baby goat jumping around a mountainside. That was the day I understood what Joy de vivre meant. I was amazed and a bit jealous. Why haven't I ever felt like that? Will I ever feel like that before I die? Probably not, but I close my eyes and see that little goat and smile. That is plenty of happiness for me. Thank you, little goat!

    #26 Wisdom manifests in the challenges of life and living. And the way appears and then the choice is ours to take.

    Your message conveys the depth of your passion for your work.. I loved your quote share as well @Randall Burns as there is profoundness in the simplicity.
    I believe this to be true and that whenever there is need for some wisdom necessary in our lives they can be garnered from the very things that we are passionately connected to. You reflect from the soul of the kitchen a knowing beyond the knowledge which works for us all. And I guess I too sense much of my reflections manifest in the interconnects of arts and life. Often as a dance teacher there is a need to convey the perspectives in the patterns of movement beyond the steps...
    So I couldnt help but smile with all my heart😊 . We as writers are artists of our thoughts and are one lucky lot as we can streamline our reflections of life and living, with our words to heal the self as much as the world we share our thoughts with. Thank you for sharing your valuable perspectives and appreciation for this post as well. Close

    Great post @Savvy Raj, very insightful and true. I agree with you. In the kitchen I'm constantly trying to mentor young Cooks, and it's not just about recipes but perspectives, knowledge and wisdom as well, it is a very rewarding aspect of my job. At the risk of sounding flippant, which I really am not, here is a quote that I use with them to try and get them onto the road of differentiating "Knowledge" from "Wisdom" , it's a start, (the more advanced one I will pass your articles onto),

    "Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit,
    Wisdom is knowing NOT to put it into a fruit salad"

    Great Buzz. I am so for change in life. The world changes with technology, culture, and so much more. If I do what I always done, I will get what I've always gotten. For better results and goals, I must change. "Try, Fail, Adjust (Change), Succeed"
    So I am for change in all things EXCEPT ONE. Man does not have the authority to change the will of God on any subject. We have been given severe warnings in several places in the Bible concerning any changes that we try to make to God's word. As we have already seen in Galatians 1:6-9, if we pervert the gospel by changing it, we will be accursed. Society has been using the word "Change" as change the Word of God or just ignore the Word of God. This is dangerous and will is just from pride and ego.
    "Pride is a Spiritual Cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love, or contentment, or even common sense." - C. Lewis. EGO is the pride we show to others and the pride we keep to ourselves that we don't do the world is real Pride and the real spiritual cancer.

    As a golf player he was unique and there will never be another like him. As a family man along with his sons, his wife Carmel and his parents and brothers that part of his story is something I value even more than his professional accomplishments. Then there is the legacy of his foundation, and here I would like to leave a video - one in English and the other in Spanish. It is an honour and privilege to have been witness to his life and being. The video's are linked below

    @Juanma Romero talks much about charisma - and I find Seve's charisma and vitality still so much alive that I shed tears of absolute respect to his memory and life, for he transcends golf and he is the human being that we can all aspire to be because he was thankful to life, to his blessings and he is so missed but his spirit is with us. We share in this immense tribute to him.

    Severiano "Seve" Ballesteros Sota (9 April 1957 – 7 May 2011) was a Spanish professional golfer, a World No. 1 who was one of the sport's leading figures from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s. A member of a gifted golfing family, he won more than 90 international tournaments in his career, including five major championships between 1979 and 1988: The Open Championship three times, and the Masters Tournament twice. He gained attention in the golfing world in 1976, when at the age of 19 he finished second at The Open.

    He played a leading role in the re-emergence of European golf, helping the European Ryder Cup team to five wins both as a player and captain.

    He won the World Match Play Championship a record-tying five times.

    He is generally regarded as the greatest Continental European golfer of all time.

    #1 @ City VP Manjit To address your thoughts and words is itself being in a flow in conscious awareness as I too enjoy your unique sense of amalgamation interspersed in exemplerary associations.
    Appreciate your words here in all humility in the spectrums of learning.
    As well as in the hues and tones betwixt and beyond the white and gold learnings that one may at times get glimpses of in these states of awareness.
    Sometimes a writer/ artist addresses a few thoughts in the flow only to see it deciphered by the reader which then opens up a gamut of potential possibilities in the learnings it is the learnings in these sharings that is crucial to our journey hare is to learn and to learn is to share.
    You mention that
    Spirituality is sensed in the words ...
    As the farther and deeper we go attempting our own explorations in the free will into the dimensions in abstraction around and beyond us.... we find the path is only leading to the subtler consciousness in our being.
    Thank you for envisioning along these paths in the lines you have highlighted from this poem and sharing your significant reflections.

    Subtlety is a maturation that I have yet to touch. I can see it in the flow and formation of this poem because it contains a great subtlety of consciousness but I have much in personal development to bring me personally to this dimension. I can get there but it is harder work for me because it is not a natural part of my disposition - which it is in very highly developed spiritual people. We can cognitively improve ourselves, we can physically improve ourselves but this is an area of spiritual growth. That is what I gain from interacting with you because it reveals itself in your words and ways. Just because we can see this in someone does not necessarily mean we can be it ourselves - but I can see the span of growth that we can learn to inhabit over the wellness of time.

    This significant spiritual dimension and depth reveals itself in lines like this :

    Shapes and angles in the abstraction
    Dots to lines in the interconnection
    Lines to Dots in the simplification
    Dots to the void of the core in the sublimation

    The spiritual dimension here is the core of the human condition - where values and being resides, hence white learning.
    This is a different thing than the social expression of spirituality which is a connection between people and hence gold learning.

    As I develop in my white learning, I will find more accessibility in the gold learning - because spiritual development must be nurtured within first - and that subtlety of consciousness are what some have a natural affinity with and others like me must work hard to appreciate in the maturation that comes with time.

    Life is truly a long, long, journey but the essence of hope keeps it moving in the right direction. And life carries on ...in the unending hope.

    When I look at humanity I do see some really excellent bits and they are bits worth focus on and then there are monstrous and terrible parts, which we wish could be reduced to bits but that is a reality of existence that may heal over time. In the middle there is a vast wasteland mediated and medicated on media and an industrial age education and this conformity is what it is.

    The reason hope remains a positive four letter word is that there is progress within a world that is still far from evolved. The generations that the young adults will give birth to will enter a far different sense and respond world. Those that have made most of innovations as conduits of humanity are no longer operating on hope but fundamental core practice. Yet hope is still an essential defense because no matter how optimistic we are, the system produces behaviours not conclusive to humanity.

    What looks like pessimism should be viewed as realism and that which is real is what we should shine the light on because that is fact bound optimism - and this is a long, long, journey but the essence of hope keeps it moving in the right direction.

    @Aaron 🐝 Skogen, you are a kind, gentle and caring human being with such a big heart. This experience has truly made an impact on you as is evidenced by your ability to share such a compelling experience and story with us here. I cannot imagine what it must be like to live in those conditions, but your ability to convey ethos, pathos, and logos in your writing helps me to understand better. Your experience is a reminder to me that little things matter just as much as the big things. It is also a reminder that faith, hope, and love prevail - even when we doubt that they do. The world works in mysterious ways and we are led to and down paths that we may question at every turn, but there is a reason. Thank you for sharing this second installment of your experience and for giving me reason to take pause.

    Hi Aaron. From time to time, I try to stop and consider the trivial nature of my own problems. Articles like this are a great reminder that my challenges are really little more than inconveniences born of prosperity, and absolutely pale in comparison to what you have described above.

    So goes life in America. We now spend so much time squabbling and bickering and fighting over the trifling details of politics and philosophy, that we have lost sight of matters that are truly important, and long with it, have largely abandoned our willingness to help our fellow man. It seems that our life of ease provides a fertile environment for breeding selfishness, petty conflict and hostility.

    As far as I know, nobody in America has to carry water on their head just to survive. It sounds to me like a trip to Haiti would provide some much needed perspective to everyone in America, especially our politicians. Great post, and many thanks to you and your family for helping.

    So I just said in a comment to Ian Weinberg; I'm being the pessimist today; Very inspirational in a rose colored world; if success does not bring with it the dark side. They say that with success comes power, which makes me think of the quote; "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." - Sir John Dalberg-Acton, 8th Baronet. When we forget all that led to success and those along the way that helped us get there, that is when self-importance and ego enters. May she never forget the mentor who got her there.

    I have always loved science and Spring is a reminded for me of new chances. For example, every one has a new beginning in their lives. Take this. Every single cell in the human body replaces itself over a period of seven years. That means there's not even the smallest part of you now that was part of you seven years ago. So it is like a Spring blooming every seven years for those who don't like their old "Shell", because it is brand new, literally.

    Invest in creating valuable experiences for people so that you are well-remembered beyond death. Cemeteries are filled with people who worked too much and earned a lot of money without having made valuable contributions during their lifetime so they're forgotten. Being rich in good actions leads you to live a more fulfilling life. Ivette K. Caballero

    #3 agreed in full. I do not need money to be remembered.

    I also dont need to be remembered to do good.

    Sometimes the most inspiring of quotes and lessons just slip by in knots during times of struggle.

    Suddenly when life starts picking up and the groove sets in, so does the real meaning of things.

    My life is picking up, i realised how easily the best of words meant different to me in ways that diluted their meaning.

    Maybe i am overloading you with overthoughts.

    On the bright side, such buzzes are triggering some useful thoughts :)

    -Thank someone for t...heir hard work
    -Write notes of appreciation to anyone who's made a difference
    -Look for ways to serve people in your family
    -Bring in the neighbor's garbage can/recycling bins
    -Help a coworker meet a deadline
    -Offer to watch a young mother's child for a few hours
    -Take a friend/neighbor's dog for a walk (and give him a nice brushing afterward!)
    -Mow/rake/sweep for an unsuspecting neighbor
    -Go through your clothes and donate items to a local shelter
    -Spend an hour at the local nursing home assisting with crafts or reading to residents.
    -Adopt somebody
    -Give someone a compliment
    -Donate blood
    -Leave a positive comment on a blog ( 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝)
    -Let someone in line go ahead of you
    -Ask all your friends & family members to do something nice for one other person in honor of your birthday and to use the money they would have spent on a gift/card for you toward an act of kindness instead!

    Smile and make people happy

    It is interesting to study the origin of the "richest man in the cemetery" quote

    http://quoteinvestigator.com/2011/11/18/richest-in-cemetery/

    It even has Prince citing that he wanted to be the richest man in the cemetery - unfortunately he tempted fate in saying that and sadly that has come true.

    We do not know who or what immortalizes people across generations but the names that get carried across millennia are few, we are all mostly forgotten and the most valuable contribution is made in this world by those most forgotten - which is teachers, guardians and parents who shaped brilliant people.

    What is absolutely true is the virtue of our actions and not our showing of them as a public display, and in this virtue exists the meaning of happiness that Aristotle described - and Aristotle is a name that has been remembered through millennia, but the actual Aristotle is dead and gone, we don't know who he actually was - only the larger than life contribution that has been passed on across generations.

    The reality is that history is a peculiar beast and instead of living in memory, enjoy the journey - what history remembers is our mythology, not the actuality of our existence. We don't control that history. Close

    @🐝 Fatima G. Williams - Pepper has gone out her way to make people feel unwelcome in my home. She glares at them and has perfected the Death Stare. She can keep this Death Stare up for hours on end..... Recently she glared at poor Molly Zodwa for over two hours. She also bites all my guests. Only two people have ever come over unscathed. One of her favourite tricks is to lurk behind doors and attack you as you go past. I have to keep her pretty stoned on Catnip on many nights.

    Whiskey & Brandy sound really cool. I have two African Wildcats here that I have raised by hand from since they were a few hours old - Jasmine and Tiger-Lily. Pepper is also a wildcat - but looks like a Norwegian Forest Cat......

    #31 She bites really ? πŸ˜‚ I have two cuteys back home. Named them whiskey and Brandy πŸ˜‚πŸ˜. Love them loads. If we irritate them they act like they are biting us but if we were to react with a painful sound. They would look with concern. They recognise my voice whenever I skype home. Miss them loads.

    "Character is not a stationary affair " This is such an interesting take on the vicissitudes of character, @debasish majumder. I think we may have a tendency to believe someone is either a good or bad character, but that is way too reductive. Situations maketh the person. I may behave badly in certain situations when something is triggered in me, like a previous problem, but yet a very similar situation the following day may allow me to behave in a good way, having realized the errors from the day before.

    It is all relative. We exhibit tendencies. And we can surely make advancements in our character, if we simply choose to learn how.

    #6 i gotta figure a way to lose the obsession with thought and perhaps get beyond the self .

    I really like reading you and @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee in continuity. Although i really find the themes very tragic.

    thought i'd get cheap thrills
    Watching fires from afar
    Then tell you i did my best
    Before the bodies char

    thought i would be king
    from the praise of monkeys
    but you did know for sure
    i forgot to say please

    thought i lost myself
    in search of twilight
    i believed it was dark
    but i didn't guess right

    thought fame had gone
    had my luck run out
    you were too thoughtful
    to clear up my doubt

    Thought i'd come out clean
    With no more wounds to lick
    But Theres no heaven or hell for me
    i am stuck in traffic

    (How could i possibly stop the fire?)

    Pretty disconnected and rough for now:( but thanks for the great read.

    Nobody is coming to the rescue. It's a hard wad to swallow with all the imagery that Hollywood panders in 'heroism', but it is the cold truth.

    #12 I meant "THEM" lol - I only knew two songs at the time. I got used to being teased about thinking he was Judas Priest then... some things haven't changed lol... I have to say that is the best show I've seen. I thought for sure I was going straight to hell for going too. Shhhh don't tell anyone.

    Saw him in Los Angeles as a teen and he drove his Harley up on stage and waved to me and my boyfriend because we were lucky to have special seats off to the side on our own. My boyfriend teased me and told me "you know you still have to go home with me" lol

    Scratching the surface of any human being is a privilege like opening the doors of perception, especially when we live among a multitude of souls who are as predictable as melting ice lolly, who are too busy knocking on the doors of the day-to-day.

    There has to be fundamental depth to a human being, where removing the onion layer yields even richer layers underneath and then discovery is mutual, friendship is profound and humanity is renaissance.

    What I read here is that and I enjoy scratching this surface.
    Otherwise it is learning what the masses learn and that is never that much.
