There are many uncertainties in the world, and many certainties. The sky is blue, The Earth is round, and stars exist. Yet, one of the most certainties that we have in life is that there will be a time in our life that will be faced with rejection. Yes, Rejection is something that none of us wants to experience, yet will have to experience over the course of our own lives. Yet, what makes rejection so devastating to us. Firstly we have to analyze what rejection is. Definition of rejection is to refuse to believe, accept, or consider. Now, read that one more time and see what is unique about the definition. Your refusal to believe that person can be a rejection. Your refusal to accept a person can be a rejection. And finally, Your refusal to consider that person is also a rejection. Therefore, there is no ambiguity that rejection is all-encompassing. When you don’t believe in a person, accept a person, or even consider that person, than that is the worst kind of rejection. It is a total isolation. That’s why it hurts so badly. Therefore, don’t let rejection be the cause of the sadness in your life.Embrace it, through the process of synthetic happiness. This will be discussed in the next post.
If you have already heard the news, then you must of heard the passing away of anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela. Reports say that he died in his sleep, peacefully. Ironically, his life wasn’t at all peaceful. Yet, he was always smiling, never letting life get in his way. We need more of that from us and people around us, yet that isn’t what made him such an inspiring figure. It takes an overall good character to be able to inspire a nation. Yet his character inspired not only a nation, but the entire world. Therefore, it is our duty in honoring him, that we examine what made his life so inspiring.
As a kid, we all have creative and imaginative memories. As Picasso once said, ” Everyone is born an artist”, yet what is the reason why we turn into adults that have lost all our sense of creativity and that our jobs just require us to do a certain task, get your paycheck, and not say a word. A person usually in this environment is a person who is depressed and most likely hates his job. Remember we need to understand that we take after what we do, so that if you work/live in a gloomy place, then you will probably be gloomy yourself. Let’s stop for a moment and inquire. Why did this happen to us? Why have we lost our imagination. We first need to understand the science of creativity. The video below is a tedxtalk done by Jim Davies about the science of imagination.
