KIND WORDS MET WITH REJECTION: WHY ONES’ POSITIVE MENTAL ENERGY IRRITATES OTHERS

“Block out the hate, someone’s listening to the real words.”


When riding the subway this morning, a man was speaking what can only be described as his own words of motivation and inspiration. Now granted, we live in New York City, so when someone gets on a train and starts talking to the passengers everyone looks away. We have been trained to do so because experience in living in this city tells you that sometimes people have other motives. And those motives can put you in a sticky situation if you decided to engage with that person. But let’s take a step back for a second and assume the man had good intentions.

What is it about people that don’t want to hear the words of motivation especially when you are on your way to work in the morning. If you observe the graph below, these are the various top ten global cities with high commutes. The number represented inside the graph as the trips in billions. Can you imagine all these commutes and I wonder, how many people enjoy hearing a little bit of encouragement in the morning on their way to work.

Or maybe I’m naive to believe that people are actually going to a place where they want to work. Maybe, just maybe, the people are not happy with their overall quality of life. And if you are unhappy with your quality of life, the last thing you want to hear in the morning to work is the goodness of life.

So when you speak motivation, the good word; who are you really talking to in life? Well, I am sure there are people listening, but they remain silent. Those who take it in the most, take it and forge ahead with it.balance, business, cobblestone The ones who reject the most are always verbal. These are the people who you don’t want to share your space with because they are headed down a road of resentment and inevitably manifest itself in how they live their lives.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
