Making a Difference — Potential is There, but is Desire?

When you think of those who have made a difference and changed the world, you probably think of Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, and there’s really no reason not to bring them up in this conversation.

But the misconception that surrounds that idea comes into play when potential is brought up. King and Parks aren’t special because they had the ability to change society — they’re special because they chose to change the way that people treated others. read more

Adversity Should be Welcomed, not Rejected

Albert Einstein once said that “adversity introduces a man to himself.”

When something bad or unfortunate happens in your life, what is the first thing that comes to mind? What questions do you ask yourself? Do you ask for an explanation? Do you go in a cocoon? What does adversity make you think of and what do you do when it suddenly strikes? read more

What, Exactly, is Normal?

If you think that it’s normal, then it’s normal.

Normal is a very weak word. Normal is in the dictionary with a definition just so it fits in with the other combinations of letters. Normal means whatever you want it to mean.

People have been trained to turn to the phrase, “that’s not normal,” when they come to something that they don’t agree with or something that they wouldn’t do, but that’s not the right way to approach things. read more

Humans are Very Similar, but Very Different

Preconceived notions about people are the worst thing on the planet and the problem is that the world is full of them.

And they can be misrepresentative of people. But we continue to send the younger generation the wrong message about the notions instead of teaching and informing them about the idea and that they shouldn’t buy into them. read more

Money Should Be Earned, Not Given

Every single person in this world is created equal and should be treated that way. I truly believe that.

But there’s a catch. And it has everything to do with the green silk with the most influential people on it.

Money is something that should be earned. If you have the ability to live on your own, you have the ability to do something that will earn and invite money into your life. You shouldn’t be waiting for a check to come in the mailbox. read more

The Real Battle in High School Sports — Parents vs. Coaches

America has evolved into a country full of people who love when they are given a compliment and hate when they are told that they aren’t doing something right.

The same thing goes for parents. A number of people who have children think that their children are perfect, but, nobody is. It doesn’t matter if you are LeBron James or the fourth-string quarterback on your high school team, you are not perfect. read more

New American President, New American Mindset — How The World Is Changed

Donald Trump wants the United States to be as independent as possible and is looking to allow the country to avoid trade whenever it can.

When Trump wrote a letter about his plans for the first hundred days of his presidency, he brought up the idea of withdrawing from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which encourages free trade among Canada, Mexico, and the United States, and, even if the United States doesn’t leave the agreement, they should try to negotiate it. read more

How Have Americans Been Negatively Impacted By The Internet?

We live in a world and a country that is worsening when it comes to the patience of people, especially children.

America has evolved into a country that has resources like the Internet readily available for anyone to use. Throughout its lifetime, the Internet has been through so many phases and has become something that people rely on every second of the day. read more
