Left Brain; Right Brain; Subconscious: Who Is In Charge?

Left Brain; Right Brain; Subconscious: Who Is In Charge?

Left Brain; Right Brain; SubconsciousLeft Brain; Right Brain; Subconscious

I am definitely right brained. Mostly. If you’re curious to find out what you are, click here.

I’m pretty sure most everyone knows about the left brain and the right brain; the left brain is logic and the right brain is creativity. But what a lot of people don’t take into consideration is their subconscious brain.

The subconscious brain is the most powerful. That part of your brain doesn’t just control your impulses and whether or not you act upon them. Robert Kiyosaki, in his book Increase Your Financial IQ, described it like this:

It does not think, but rather reacts, fights, flees, or freezes… The subconscious mind also affects our bodily actions via bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. For example, in the game of golf, pressure may cause a golfer to choke and miss an easy putt. Subconsciously, a person may freeze and not take action out of fear of making a mistake, or stay at a job for security rather than the love of the work.

The way I look at the subconscious mind is that, whether or not you want something doesn’t matter if your SUBCONSCIOUS doesn’t think it will ever happen.

THAT is why it is very important that you always think POSITIVE! Tell yourself that you CAN do something! If you go to do something and suddenly you feel like you can’t THAT is your subconscious working against you.

Shut it up.

Put up or shut up.

If you want it, fight and eventually your subconscious mind will come around.

Comment. How do you feel about this?

When I Give You My Time…

When I Give You My Time…

When I Give You My Time...

Have you ever been in this position?

Given your time to someone and then they just spit it back in your face?

If you are with a group of people, in a relationship, or even meeting someone new that doesn’t appreciate your efforts it is at that point you need to realize that you don’t have to put up with that crap and move on.

And don’t regret that wasted time. Look at is as a learning experience. Now you know the EXACT personality types you will want to avoid in the future.

Was this a waste of your time? I hope not…

Why Kill Them With Kindness…

Why Kill Them With Kindness…

Why Kill Them With Kindness...
As much as I want to agree with this (and I laugh at this every time I look at it) violence doesn’t solve everything. Everything.

I was raised on the belief that you don’t get any respect until you smack someone, but that was only to apply to bullies. Not all of your friends will appreciate a violent side if you decide to show it.

If kindness works on your bully, then kudos. Otherwise, if the school system doesn’t help and there isn’t much your parents can do, a good smack might help exponentially. I’m more of a “it depends upon the situation” type person.

But if I can avoid the confrontation altogether, I’ll go that route. I would rather there be no violence.

If you can be kind in a situation, you are a better person than I. The closest I could get to your “sainthood” would be to just walk away.

What would you do if a bully was messing with you?

Keep Speaking The Truth

Keep Speaking The Truth

Keep Speaking The Truth
For people like myself who always speaks the truth (if they speak at all) know the importance of being consistent. Even if, like myself, you are called a bitch or unfriendly or heartless, be consistent.

And maybe try to change how you word yourself. I am trying, but sometimes I just snap…

Anyway, one thing someone will never call me is untrustworthy. They may say a bunch of other nasty things, but they will never say that I have lied to them. It’s actually quite the opposite; I’ve been called brutally honest.

How many others can claim the same?

I’ll comment anyway because I have some good news!

My father followed his dream and published his first book! I made him a blog for it and everything!

It’s Better To BE Alone Than To FEEL Alone

It’s Better To BE Alone Than To FEEL Alone

NOBODY

Sometimes, you just need to let people go and put yourself in a crowd that appreciates you.

After my four best friends stabbed me in the back, I found a new crowd and I didn’t even realize until then how draining the previous crowd was.

But, the thing is, I was by myself for a while before finding said new crowd. I was able to rest and recuperate, look at things from a fresh set of eyes.

I was exhausted. They weren’t all there. I would speak and it felt like they weren’t really listening. It felt like I was just there to fill a gap. I was the friend being walked on. Clearly. They stabbed me in the back and only of them them thought twice about it. He just didn’t tell me the backstabbing was going to happen. He lied by omission because he didn’t want to “betray” his girlfriend.

Um… dummy. If she’ll betray me, what makes you think she won’t betray you? And what makes you think the rest of them won’t betray you?

And our other two friends (the ones I reconciled with) no long associate with him and his forgetful girlfriend.

Very often.

Karma!

But I digress.

That time I was able to spend by myself was INCREDIBLE! I no longer felt like space. I no longer felt like I didn’t matter.

I could do whatever I wanted and not worry about being interrupted. I could just reflect on our friendship. Or the lack there of.

But that negative energy, that lack of interest, that lack of compatibility causes you to be in a kind of forced relationship, which is very tiring. And I didn’t even realize until they had stabbed me in the back.

My four best friends dropped down into the two people I hate the most, an acquaintance, and one best friend. I reconciled with two of them like I said. Click here for the full story. Not getting into it again here…

But that experience helped me realize that out of that group, only one is really worth my time. The other is just awkward conversations. The other two have been dropped for they have yet to apologize.

Having nobody is better than having liars and backstabbers who never cared about you to begin with. Even if you did many things for them. Like reveal that another one of their friends stabbed THEM in the back by spreading rumors… hmm…

But I digress. Again.

Sorry.

The new crew that I mentioned before consisted of freshmen. They reminded me of something that I had forgotten; I get along a lot better with people who are either younger or older than myself. I could be a teacher’s pet when I wanted to be and I’ve always been good with kids. I’ve never really gotten along with people my own age.

I became of the overseer in my new crew. They turned to me for advice. I was the mom. I was never alone during my final semester of college because of them. We fed off each others’ energy instead of clashing with each other and fighting for a voice. That one final semester was my happiest time.

They weren’t half there; they were all in.

We were all in. I was no longer drained.

I didn’t want to graduate. 😀

My point is, sometimes you need to be by yourself in order to figure out what you want.

It’s better to be alone than to feel alone.

Have you ever been in this position? I hope not…

Not Everything Is Out To Get You

Not Everything Is Out To Get You

Not Everything Is Out To Get You

There could be a time where you are experiencing nothing but crappy days one after the other. Don’t look at it from a negative view point. The minute you allow negativity to run your life, you’ll never get anything done.

With every negative thing that happens, something positive will come out of it.

For example: If I hadn’t broken my finger two weeks before I was to ship out for the military, I wouldn’t have been able to join Empower Network. Now, I am working from the comfort of my own home, blogging.

One door closes, another one opens.

Some things are just falling into place.

Not everything is out to get you.

Think back to something terrible that happened, really think about it. Did anything good come out of it?
