MENTAL/HEALTH: JANUARY TOPIC

asia, beautiful, believe

“Center yourself both inside and out.”


FOCUS

Starting this month my blog will look a lot different from the previous years when I started in August of 2015. Each month will be dedicated to a particular topic of interest. And at least 12 times per month, I will be incorporating a video/and or graphical charts with my particular takes on a subject.

ASKING THE WHY

This month, I will be focusing on the mental. Doesn’t matter if it’s mental thinking, our mental health, or even how well the brain works to enable us to do what we do in society on a daily basis. It’s a topic of interest to me for quite some time. How well does the human brain work? How do we use it because of our thought? And why we should maintain a healthy mental state. I will also be placing quite a few views on physical health as well.

ABOUT THIS MONTH

As you can see, the topics will not be spread out, but will more so be condensed into a shorter post. These shorter posts are meant to focus more on the graphical information, charts, videos I provide, with shorter quick reads. So January will be what I deem as, “Mental/Health Month.” After January, no more will be pertaining to mental health until January of 2019.

CONCLUSION

So for this entire year while I build my blog further, I will condense things into a more interactive space. I want you to think more on a particular topic longer. Whereas in the past, I was posting randomly throughout the year. I want you to think, I want you to reply, I want you to share, I want you to like, and hopefully you will follow. So be on the lookout for all that I have to offer and bring to you for the upcoming year. Also, be sure to continue to support my other platforms as well which are listed below.

MENTAL EVOLUTION: HOW SHIFTING YOUR PERCEPTION AIDS IN HUMAN GROWTH

Image result for mental evolution

“Mind over bull.”


As an adult, you are able to survive in this world because your parents may have given you the basics in how to go into world with confidence and live. But what your parents can try to prepare you for, that you inevitably have to do on your own is expand your mind. Expansion of the mind has to come from the inside out, not the outside in. That human growth of the mind that will allow you to become successful in whatever career endeavor you pursue. Because I don’t care how much talent you possess, if that mind is not clean, then you’re going to have problems progressing. And what do I mean by a clean mind. I mean recontexualizing the way you see the world in the current state so that you open yourself up to new possibilities. Those who don’t open themselves up will ultimately have a harder time succeeding. It will be hard to see that growth initially because you’re living in real time, but it’s gradual.

How do I know this considering I am so young? It’s because I now understand so much more at the age of 30 then I did at 20 because I shifted my perception on the world. But what I have also learned on that path is the difference between poverty versus prosperity; happiness versus depression. And it has a lot to do with how you perceive the world. Your perceptual views are very evolutionary based, and in order to move even through the ranks of socioeconomic, you have to shift perceptions. So if you want to go from being poor to building a life in the middle class, you can’t think the same way as you do when you are poor. There is a shared mind-frame of those that are poor that allows some to climb and others never to leave their position. And it’s because of the previous statement the ones who don’t leave poverty can’t connect to you.

Meaning, let’s say you are a lottery winner, and you win $1 million. A poor person runs out and buys a nice home and car, while the middle class person pays off their current home, and invest the rest in their children (if they have any), otherwise they safely invest in the market. Now, unlike the poor or even the middle class person, upper class understand that in context of this machine that is America, $1 million is so small. So they reinvest everything back in the system.But if you are poor and can’t understand why people win, that’s why. It’s not a conspiracy, they reinvest more than they spend. They put themselves in the know of whatever it is they want to attain. But that in itself all boils down to how your mind works and what you’re willing to open your mind to learn out here in the world.

In the end, the only way for your mind to grow is to open yourself to new ways of thinking. You have to epitomize what is evolution: a shift from what is simple to what is complex. Even in regards to household income, shift from simple to complex. That does mean going from poverty to prosperity is simple to complex, it simply means if you have found a way to go from poverty to the middle or even upper, you have defeated a statistical odd that said you couldn’t. So numbers in your case lie because you harnessed a skill to make this life work for you. So you have evolved, and you will continue to evolve.

CONSCIOUSNESS: WHY WE HAVE SUCH A HARD TIME COPING WITH ONE

Image result for mind

“Cognition is our greatest gift and curse.”


Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to figure out why we think and behave the way we think and behave. Where does this consciousness come from and why was it given to us. But our greatest strength that has built civilizations and continue to build is our greatest curse as well. Because in addition to the greatness, we have a history of famine, war, and poverty. We have used our strengths to control the minds of others, leading them down a path of wrongdoing. And this great gift that we have come to know and build so much, takes a toll on us when we are at the end of our lives. Or better yet, knowing that one day we will no longer be here on Earth. The idea of existing is beautiful, but the thought of all this consciousness dying and vanishing creeps us out.

My career goals are writing (screenwriting, playwright, novelist, and blogger), filmmaking, and photography. And when I sit down to generate ideas, with all the challenges of working on my next projects, also comes the great ideas. So where does all this come from that streams through my mind when it comes to telling a story. Is it a gift? Is it something that we are born with individually? Or do we find out a skill we have and build off of that to become great? In my opinion, humans don’t have a gift to inherently perform something that no one else can perform. We are all good at certain actions, but some of us will fight to build off of that, and others will ignore it. This is why we have few great people who go off and prosper at what they do. Like, for example, the movie, Good Will Hunting. Matt Damon’s character was a mathematical genius, but no one pushed him until he found Robin Williams.

In real life, there is no Robin Williams that comes in the form that Robin introduced himself to Damon. You have to put out into the world, and then hopefully someone will see you for your talents and you’ll move into a space where you can publicly express your full potential. Yet if no one is able to see you for what it is that you do, then is everything lost? No, it just means you have to go into the world and show people yourself. And having the cognitive ability to do so is what makes us think to ourselves, how do we get in that frame of mind. What is it in the brain where dots are connected and things start to make sense where we put ourselves in the know.

And in the end, that is the great wonder of the mind. That ability to continue to ask questions and gain insight into ourselves and the world around us. But the more we find out about ourselves, old traditions that have bound us for so long are dying. Religion being on of them. In the past we thought that this light in the sky that is the sun goes everywhere we go. Then it moved on to the Earth is the Earth, and we are pulled by gravitational force to wherever the sun goes. Then we have moved on to the sun not only pulling the Earth, but other planets as well. Now, we would like to know, where is the sun taking us as we orbit around it, shooting through the universe. The more time goes by, the more our minds become expansive, and we learn not just about ourselves, or our planet, but other awe and wonders of the universe that makes up us as well as other connecting universes. Yet with with all that knowledge, our all-knowing minds make us slaves to our own vulnerabilities in the process.

THE EVOLUTION OF MAN: HOW DO WE PHYSICALLY ADAPT

Related image

“How are we adjusting moving forward?”


We are always hearing about how in the future technology will be at such a scale. Well, what about the idea of human evolution physically. I have heard numerous reports of how the human species will advance in our physical appearance in addition to technology. This makes sense considering technology is getting better. All it means is that our minds are expanding, giving rise to our heads growing because our brains are growing. And when that happens, you will have the entire facial structure taking on a new look. Meaning, our bodies will also take on another form. And this is not in the distant future. This physical change is likely to happen over the course of the next 50, 100, 200 years. When you observe the evolution of man, 200 years is not a long time. The United States as a country is not even 200 years old yet. So what other factors could possibly take place with this change?

You are going to have a less religious society; one that is more human centralized. One in which man will be forced to help each other because we will know more about ourselves. Depending on a deity is most likely to decline. In the centuries past, we needed to walk and drive more, but not in the future. So our awareness will be heightened in other areas because we will have technology to scale to transport us around. And when one sense is lowered another gets stronger. Meaning, when we are driving a car, our minds are constantly moving trying to figure out space around our vehicles. The car has made us extra sensitive because you’re watching so much at one time. But with self-driving vehicles in the future, you’ll watch less of the road, and more of the outside world. And here is where your mind can focus on ideas as you take your daily commute. The mind can be a lot more expansive.

The human body will be able to live longer, not just because of modern medicine, but because of less labor intensive activity. Well, at least for more developed nations. Places like the United States, where numbers of population will shrink due to cost of living, and technology on the rise, the strenuous work on the body is decreased. And from this you have an aging population, where the average age of people in America today is 78, and will jump higher over a century from now. With everything that I have said so far, the human body will also evolve in how we perceive the world around us. With the brain expanding our eyes will take in a lot more than prior. You start to see life around in color and shape different than your ancestors. Images may appear in a totally different shape, and we may build to scale at a higher level.

Humans over time will also become healthier due to previous studies. We are not carnivores, but have had to eat meat as a means to feed so many people; it’s survival. So with this diet change, the body could also take another form as well. Well at least in more developed countries where people are more health conscious. In the end, as with all the technological changes, we also have to talk about the changes to the human body. The technology is growing to scale because of the changes we are going through internally. We’re getting smarter, we’re getting softer, we’re becoming less religious, yet more compassionate. We won’t be in a Utopian society, but at every level we do learn from past mistakes to become greater in the future.

USING THE PSYCHO-PSYCHOSIS OF SOCIETY TO BUILD YOUR WAY TO WEALTH

Image result for psychosis

“When they stop talking, you need to worry.”


The above is a photo of the painting by Edvard Munch. The great thing about art is that we all have our own interpretations for them. When I see this painting of the screaming man and then the two people walking behind him, I have my own interpretation. To me, what I gain from this image is man’s horror and madness in a society where others around him may appear to be calm. What is crazy and hectic for you might be calm for others. People whose lives are out of wack have this psycho-psychosis behavior about themselves.

Let’s break down what I mean by psycho-psychosis. A person of psychotic nature is someone who is severely mentally ill person suffering from a serious form of psychosis. Which brings me to psychosis which is someone who has lost contact with reality in day-to-day life. So when put together, these psycho-psychosis people are suffering from the most sever cases of detachment to the point their disordered thoughts makes them see and believe things that are not real. They think that they are real because the emotion behind it is so strong. This can lead to deeper problems like keeping them from being able to socially engage with the world around them. Now you might be asking yourself, what does all of this have to do with building wealth?

For starters, there are a demographic of people that have to hate something. Especially in today’s society because we have all these social media outlets to openly express yourself. So, as with people who use it for building themselves up, there are others using it to tear someone down. How do you, or how can these people tearing down be used as a means to make money? Well, their detachment from reality (psychosis) makes them want to believe something about you that’s not true. Like you didn’t work for your living. The more you talk, the more upset they become, and that anger turns into venting. That venting gains attention, just the attention you need to push whatever it is you’re selling.

Meaning, let’s say you’re a Kardashian-Jenner and you’re trying to sell your next perfume or article of clothing. Soon as you post, the people that love will say things like, “Congrats,” or, “Can’t til it comes out.” The haters will right full passages about how awful they are in life. And since the haters speak with such a loud voice, they’ll build the bridge for you to just walk right on over. Or build the bridge for your customer base to come to you. And once you have attention of the audience you want, hit them with the “thing” you are working on. You don’t have to worry about the haters, your loyal fan base will take care of that for you. Thus, building your own brand off the back of those you push against you; let your haters provide you with free publicity.

And people can’t help themselves when they are this detached. They’ll stand around wondering how you got to where you are in life. Crazy thing about it, even if you give them the blueprint, they’ll still deny it. These psychosis people are the delusional ones. Despite hard concrete evidence of how you defeat them, they’ll still believe the latter. I was watching a video posted to Facebook about a man from Russia discussing people and their delusion of the truth. He stated that he could bring them to the death camps, prisons, show them photographs and documents, and they will still deny the atrocities. It only causes effect to them once they are kicked in the behind. Then they become these conspiracy theorists. They believe in this grand conspiracy, but it doesn’t even matter at this point.

That same delusion and disconnect with reality applies to you capitalizing off it. There was a mother recently who spent $25,000 on her son a sweet sixteen birthday party. People are raving about this party, all the while his social media is climbing. If he plays his cards right he can flip it in his favor and make that money back easily. And since people are so delusional in their own psychosis, they will deny the truth and continue to push your brand. See, in the end, the people have the power to make themselves or break themselves. We push them to higher levels and don’t even realize we’re doing it. Making money takes skill and hard work, but also it’s mental. It’s your mentality that will ultimately make or break you. Because if you don’t use your brain to build yourself someone else will use it to enrich themselves.
