My point of view throughout this entire experience is that many of these kids do not act upon their potential, and blame the system for their misfortune. If they just harness that energy into developing new ideas to improve their life, the phrase “if life gives you lemon you make lemonade” is true in this situation.
I interviewed a kid which has an open mind, but has decided to drop out of high school. To me, that is just plain stupid. If your life is already in a difficult situation, why add to the problem by not getting educated?
Some believe this will not change anything in Washington or Wall Street for that matter. What we must do, is use what we have an make something out of nothing.
A Greek philosopher by the name of Epicurus once said:
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.”
Also Prime Minister said:
“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
Sir Winston Churchill
You must follow what you have and do things that only you can overcome with your current situation, because only you understand your situation.
Watched the baseball game of Yankees v. Tigers. Looking at every pitch and every moment that transcribe last night had me on the edge of my seat. I can careless about the Yankees, but I do have to admit that it was an exciting game.
I enjoyed watching Juaquin “Walking” Beniot pitched during the 7th and 8th inning. The gripping moments when he would be behind at the count, 3-0 with two man on base and Granderson at bat. Granderson is clearly a threat to any pitcher, and his record clearly states that he is a man not to be taken lately. As “Walking” Beniot look down at home plate catcher and slightly shake his head as to deny the selection by the catcher to throw a slider or a breaking ball, knowing that a mistake would load the bases. The call is set, and “Walking” pitches a high fast ball that loads the bases. These were the moments in the game that I would hold on to my baseball tight, because I know that the Yankees at any moment can strike a blow, and the Tigers would lose their lead from 3-2 in 7th.
“Walking” Beniot pitched a low breaking ball to Robertson Cano which quickly fly out and set the stage for Alex Rodrigues “A-Rod” to come to the plate. “Walking” pitches a fastball down the pipe and catches Rod looking. At this moment, my hands are sweating and the baseball is starting to get uncomfortable in my hand. “Walking” pitches a slider on a 0-2 count, and Rod swing and strikes out at the end of the 7th.
That moment was the defining moment that shifted the momentum to Detroit, and it was all over for the Yankees. The opportunity that the Yankees had in the 7th could not have been better placed for them, but they were unable to capitalize from their lineup.
In the end Valverde pitched again to Rod in the 9th, but it was a 1-2-3 strike which ended the game and gave a stunning victory to the Tigers to move on to the ALCS
In the end the Yankees had many opportunities, but it was the key at bat that made the difference in the game, and those at bat came from three strike outs by Alex Rodriguez.
You can add your opinion to the mix, but there is no doubt that A-Rod choked last night.
We see how things evolve in life and we see how things are always changing. There are a few who really notice the change in culture, and there are other who don’t notice the social change. We walk along the path society has to provided us and we follow along and live our life as if nothing has changed. The years go by and we take for granted those subtle changes that life has made. Looking back at our early years, there were a few people that we look up to and there are a few things in which we guide our lives from. Many do not realize that some of the people, relationships, and even paths that we take in our life are due to some of these subtle changes that we make. From the purchase of our first car, the class elective that we decided to take in high school, or even the music we listen to. We take for granted those things that we do not notice that have changed our direction in life.
When a take a closer look at these things, I realize that someone has influenced my life in a different direction. This small change in direction is what has taken me on a long rewarding career. I look at the world in a different way, I do things in a completely different manner, and I tackle problems not from a common sense perspective, but from a analytical perspective. Those changes in my life are not because they are with in me, but they have been developed by the small subtle interaction with things that I never noticed before.
Looking today at the news I see where my career began, I know where it all started, because interacting with different things made me who I am today.
My first computer was an Apple computer in which I developed my skills in software programming, and architectural drafting in high school. I look back at this event in my life and see the news today, and now I know what it means to change the world.
Steve Jobs, thank you for changing my life.
a part in our character that can take us to the brink of insanity. What makes us who we are is always the reason why we fail sometime. We follow our own convictions and we follow our own demise to think that we are only human and that is why we fail. There are many of us who try to embrace a sense of pride of what we have, but in order to feel comfortable with our selves we need to surround our self with things that do not matter to develop our soul. Facebook, Twitter, these are things that only satisfy the outer shell of our personality. Yet we find that as soon as we complete our twitter update and our Facebook post we see that nothing has changed but the fact that your personal life has been shared with the world to critic or support.
If we look deeper in our own self we find that there are things that we can accomplish besides making it known to the world as to why you are upset or why you are happy. Let’s share those moments with the world, but at the same time let’s share a solution. We can always talk about what we did wrong or what went wrong but we never talk about what we are going to do right. If we took just a little time to think about what we write to others and then just find a solution to that problem we can see that our life can actually be more satisfying.
I have always found the energy to critic someone and my self, but there has never been a time, that I can remember, that I never provided positive feedback on how to fix the issue or do things better to make it right. We sink our morale and we enclose our self in the negative stance that nature as human is all we have, and that is not the case. When we can think this way we can see that there is something wrong with our way of life. Whether is money, or relationship there is always a way to display the humanity that we have with in us to not only help ourselves but also help others.
The most important fact about all is that we must find our happiness and we must find it by solving problems with ourselves.
