MENTAL EVOLUTION: IS THE BRAIN STILL EVOLVING

Related image“Is there still room for growth?”


We as humans have been evolving for millions of years. But have we hit a wall and are now devolving? Because when I look at how we use technology and how we communicate, I’m starting to see this weird trend. It’s almost as if people have this amazing technology, but they are using it to push us backward instead of forward. We argue, we fight, and we use it to kill. Now the few chosen people who use it build will always grow. But what about the rest? Or, maybe I’m just being paranoid because we are living in real time.

COULD IT REALLY BE THAT BAD?

Because living in real time, everything seems bad, until we look back in time. But let me ask you a question, do you feel that life is going backward? Or could it be that also we are in the testing period of all this great technology. In the testing period, we appear to be going backward, but really we’re working out all the kinks. What we could be seeing are the defective people who are using technology in the wrong manner. And it is causing us to appear like moving backward is real. But are we really?

IMPOSSIBLE TO GO BACK

Now, if you know anything about science, you would know, it’s not possible to digress. And the reason being that once you open people’s minds to the possibilities, you can never go back. It’s impossible to go back to eight track tapes once you see the magic of digital. It’s impossible to go back to life where women were forced to be at home now that women have a position in our workforce. And with that said, the mind continues to expand, especially the more we build and the more we challenge ourselves. The mind can’t stop evolving because every generation is looking to outshine the previous.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THOSE WHO DON’T CHANGE

For the regions of the world that never shift, you’re going to have a large demographic of people stuck in limbo. And one reason is because as science and technology shifts, their beliefs don’t change. And the evolution of the mind of these places are going to get left behind. But like I said, we don’t digress with the human brain. So what will happen, those who refuse to change won’t have to worry about enemies, their own youth will fight back. Then you’ll be stuck in a decision to fight them or deal; and to continue the civilization, you will have to deal.

END OF YEAR REFLECTION: WHERE ARE YOU AND WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE

Image result for REFLECTING

“What will come of the future?”


There are 13 days left until the beginning of the new year. And with all that has taken place this year, as always, we must take time to reflect on where we are in our lives. The end of of the year makes you look overall at what you may have accomplished, and if everything is all right in the world, then the year was a success. But what happens if the year wasn’t as eventful as you would have liked it to be? That would mean you must make the appropriate adjustments so that the following year is more than the previous. One of the things I have decided to do concerning my writing is to create better content that I put into the world to build my platform. I am also trying to work to be more self employed, as well as stepping up my writing ability so I can prepare for my next novel and book of short stories books to be released hopefully by the beginning of the year 2019.

See, I have a goal that I have been pursuing year after year. Now what shall one do when there is nothing that the person is feeling their time with to progress forward. What will happen is that you will find yourself stuck in a rut without a plan, and then depression sets in. Then you will become unhappy because the world is moving around, while you sit aside watching everyone else live their lives. And the last thing you want is to find yourself not being able to progess forward. Now if you are moving forward, sometimes you may feel like you’re not making progress because in the paradigm of life, everything is kind of slow. You only are seeing small minor spikes of success that lead to something bigger later on. If you’re not careful this can also make people get down on themselves when trying to persevere. Because we live in such an instant society, you can feel discouraged when life is not moving fast enough.

Yet, if you are reflecting on the time and energy you put into something and you’re making the appropriate strides to be where you’re trying to be in life, then it’s worth the wait. My main goal in life is a career as a photographer, filmmaker, and writer (author, screenwriting, playwright). These are very long arduous paths that requires a lot of skill and patience to succeed. Because in the end, you must be willing to suffer to get to where you want to be in life. The path of success and the reflection on everything you have accomplished and hopefully will accomplish comes with due diligence. Nothing is overnight, and with each passing year, if every reflection is a look over time and you’re happy, then you’ve done your job.

CONQUERING FEAR THAT ISN’T FEAR AT ALL

Full Frame Shot of Text on Wood

“Made up problems that really don’t exist.”


Failure to launch is the term we use for someone that has a hard time stepping into the world and being on their own. They do so because they either don’t have anything that they are passionate about, or don’t have any goals. And when you don’t have goals you just sit around hoping for things to fall into place. But as long as you’re not putting yourself into harms way, then things can’t happen to you. But the harms way is the main reason why so many people will not step into society. Now me on the other hand, I love the risk, I love the fear, I love the unknown. I have a short film I will be producing in less the 11 days, and have no clue how it will go. The project could flow, or I could run into multiple problems. My first short film I had problems, but it was a learning experience for my second one. But what is it about what I do that makes it so hard for so many others to do?

You see, growing up, my mother always kept my sisters and myself in the library and school. She made sure we were in academic environments, or some other environment where I had to get in the game of life. So I fear, but I still do anyways. And there is a reason for me not quitting out of fear. It’s because I have been prepped to step into the world knowing I will fall before I gain my Image result for mother silhouettefooting. My mother told her children growing up, “Struggle through your 20’s, to have a life you want afterward in your 30’s and so forth.” So for me, it’s second nature for me to attack in life. And my mother wasn’t some PhD or Master’s Degree holder. She only had a high school diploma, and nothing more than that. Yett she was willing to put herself in the know when it came to raising her children. And that know has made her children fearless to step into the world.

Now, as far as the people who fail to rise to the occasion, like I said earlier, they have these fears. What’s odd is that they are usually the extroverted people. The introverts always so much more successful in their careers. It’s odd because if the extroverts used that outgoing personality then they would be so much more successful. For some reason, they don’t see it that way. It’s for that
reason that extroverts I feel need an opposite to befriend or be in relationships with. And like the extroverts, introverts need someone who is more fearless in their pursuit of personal happiness. I grew upRelated image with so many people that if they put that extrovert personality to use they could be on a whole other level. But what is interesting is that they look at me and say, “How do you do that?” As if I have some sort of magical power. I don’t have any magic powers, it’s just that I fall and get up because I know falling is an aspect of life.

See, in the end, you should approach success like approaching hanging out with friends. The same way you network in your friendships, you network in your career endeavors. When you try meeting new people, do you give up when someone does not want to hang with you? No, you just hang around people that want to hang around you. It’s the same with success; you have to put yourself out there. And the reason they don’t is the fear: fear of what others think, fear of failing, and fear of having to continue to satisfy. But me, I want the risk, I love the unknown, I love the fear; it’s what makes me feel alive.

INTO THE FUTURE: WHAT WILL THE FUTURE OF SOCIETY HOLD FOR US ALL

astronaut, future, kosmonaut

“The mistakes of the past will hopefully be corrected in the future.”


Throughout our lives, we always wonder what the future holds for all of us. And we often look back at how technology looked, and how we thought it was so ingenuous. But today it looks so dated that we laugh about how cheap it looks to us. That’s because what we have at the moment is so advanced compared to what we used to have in the past. So, 10 years from now, I wonder what will
Image result for 1999 internetlook dated to us. Or better yet, 20 years from now, what will look odd that we thought was so great. And I am not even talking about something on a high level, I’m speaking of search engines. I wonder how will they change over time. Or will there be something more virtual that will aid us in searching out information.

Today, we are advancing more and more the use of AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) into our lives. Virtual reality still looks nice, yet pretty generic to us. And we usually use the two so far for video games and small simulation uses. But as time progress, AR and VR will so widely used in education, which will most likely increase the average student GPA. Image result for ar and vrNow in my opinion, the GPA of students initially using the technology will be higher than the students using it later. Early use creates a lot of intrigue, but once it is the standard, you ‘ll see a status quo of average students. Same with AR, which I think will be just as good for education, but more important of business use. People like doctors, engineers, architects, and scientist will be able to perform their jobs more swiftly.

And if the future continues to progress with increase in technological innovation, what will this mean for politics. Because Facebook has been pivotal in the campaigning of presidents in the United States. Barack Obama’s campaigns were both heavily pushed via social media as well our current president Donald J. Trump. Image result for future votingYou’ll start to be able to track other country’s leaders as well. And what will happen in addition is a more global system and moving toward fewer and fewer countries. You’ll start to notice nations beginning to merge, bringing on surprisingly more conflict. Because with diversity comes so many different ideologies in one given space. I think that there will be fewer wars, but more smaller isolated conflicts. Religion will start to decline, more people will rely on self-motivation than the need of a deity. I see us knowing so much about ourselves that we initially become depressed because all we see is this on Earth and no afterlife. But as more time progress it will become the norm.

In the end, the changes will be drastically different, but a sense of normalcy will still exist. And when I think about the future, I mean by the time I get to my middle age years of 50 years old in 20 years, hopefully greatness follows. Once technology starts to really advance, the population could decrease because manpower is less important and society is more expensive to dwell. Meaning, a rate of poverty also declines, and we have more food to feed the people alive. People will also live longer, on average today is 78, closer to 100 in 20 years. So, let me ask you, what do you think the future holds?

DIFFICULTY ADJUSTING: WHY PEOPLE ARE PUSHING BACK AGAINST THE TECH SHIFT

Related image

“What we doing to ourselves?”


Recently, people have found it hard to cope with  the idea that jobs in the United States are moving out of the country. But not just any jobs, the industrialized jobs that once built this nation. Now, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any jobs left in America. It just means that the marketplace has shifted around. We are moving away from an industrialized nation to a more technologically savvy nation. And that is something that so many people did not see coming. People were under this impression that we’re going to work in factories for life. But everything in society changes, everything. And that you have to be able to shift with the constant change. So now everyone is mad.

But mad, mad at what? We have always been a nation that has made these types of shits in technology. Yes, jobs are shrinking in one area, but we will be making strides in other areas. And the fact that we are in an open marketplace, this creates so many more great opportunities. Yet so many are resistant to change in our society. No matter if it’s social, economic, or educational. Changes have to take place; this is how one nation stays ahead of another. And if America starts to lag behind, then this nation as a whole will start to  take losses. So what must be done to prepare for the shift that is taking hold in our society? They must face the inevitable, and move with everything else in our world.

As technology progresses, products and services will become more efficient and productive. Not only that, but cost will drastically be brought down.  And no longer will you need the labor of people to get a job done. Because a computer will be able to handle what people used to do. Meaning, we as a society will become more of an informational, operational, managerial, group of people. The man or woman who can use their hands to perform a task is a dinosaur. Now, what used to take pain-staking hours of labor can be done in some instances with the click of a mouse. Once again, does this mean jobs are loss, absolutely, but not permanently. Old jobs are removed and made way for new opportunities. Then why are so many people raging against the machine? Because of the time to put into learning something new.

And in the end, that’s the biggest concern with the tech industry taking hold. It’s not that people are down and out. It’s that people start to age and get set in their ways and don’t want to learn anything new. You are more than capable, but you’re so used to the status quo, you think it should stay that way forever. But remember one key aspect of change while you’re fighting it. The change that able you to be who you are, doing what you’re doing was pushed against. Yet the push was ineffective, which laid ground for you to be you. So you have to adjust and figure your shit out, there’s no other way.

GOING SOMEWHERE FEELING NOWHERE FAST: DO YOU EVER FEEL IN THE MOMENT YOU’RE NOT ACCOMPLISHING MUCH

Related image

“It’s where you end not how you start.”


Ever get the feeling in life that you are pushing so hard, it feels like you are progressing. You wake up putting the work in, but you are not seeing the progress. Is it because you are not working hard enough or is it because the road to where you want to go is very long and hard? The life that we all want is right there in front of us, but we cannot see it because it is not in the now. And that is something that hurts us in life is the now. In the moment, we have such a hard time seeing the future. Especially if we are in a tough spot in life.

Putting in the work is very important, but if that’s what you are doing why is it so hard to see? It’s because of the society we live in today. We live in a very right now society. Meaning anything we want we can access it right now. And when you want a successful career, it is a long road, that you can not have in the now. The path is long and hard and sometimes you can’t see where you’re going because of all the work you are putting in now. For example, I am on my path to filmmaking and becoming a novelist. I see places I want to be, but there is a process and that process is long and hard. Meaning I have already started with my first short film. I saw any mistakes and have already looked to correct them for my next one. Yet, it still feels at times there is no movement.

Why does it feel that way? I work everyday with a lot of young people who are in the process of building their futures. Then again, you see they go out on the weekends, date, and travel, while I am working on writing and filmmaking. Which leads to another reason that road is difficult to navigate. When looking at your peers, you perceive them to be doing something that you are not doing. I have often worked in he computer lab and thought to myself, could I be doing what they’re doing. Then I come to my senses and realize their path is their path. Even as optimistic as myself, I have allowed such thoughts to intrude. But notice I said come to my senses. Which is something a lot of people don’t do. They allow themselves to be determined by others progress.

And this is evident because you’ll hear them say, “Not everybody can be you.” But that’s not the point is to be the other person. The only reason people look at others is because society holds up this image of what success looks like in the world. But the person who embodies that have chased it on their own, while you chase their embodiment saying, “I can’t be them.” Stop trying to be the society image and be what is out here for you. See, in the end, it is so difficult for people to step outside of what is expected of them. So when pursuing, you can’t see where you want to be because it may be not the norm of what everyone else wants you to do. We find it so hard to see ourselves in a certain position because we never want to put our all into something and it goes nowhere. But you will never know until you pursue.

WHEN TO SAY WHEN: HOW TO ELIMINATE PEOPLE WHO AREN’T IN YOUR BEST INTEREST

Image result for LEAVING PEOPLE

“Know when to throw in the towel.”


Packing your bags and removing people from your life can be a very tough decision to make. Because at times these are people that are the closest to you. They are usually friends and even family. You have to cut people loose sometimes because they tend to be more of a burden and hindrance in your life than an advancement. But how do you know if the person or people in your life are becoming a ball and chain. Trust and believe, you’ll know, you may try to act like you don’t, but you’ll know. And for those of you who don’t know what I mean here are a few examples of the ball and chain. They are generally people who leach off of you, they’re me people who only care about themselves, the jealous types who hate on your success, and they’re people who make excuses as to what’s wrong with everyone else but themselves.

How do you rid yourself of the first type of person or people; the leach. The leach are the ones who want to live off of your shine and success. They don’t use you as an example where they want to be in their own lives. They say, you’re successful, why don’t you take care of me. But it’s not your job to care for them, better yet, it’s their job to play catch-up. And if they are not bent on catching up, you have to leave them behind. Easier to do with friends, but what about in the case of family. What happens when someone whose a family member becomes a burden. You give and give, and nothing transpires from it. They just look at your act of kindness as weakness. That’s when you must cut them off, until they are willing to change.

Now the next  group of people who you have to cut loose are the ones who only care about themselves. They live for them and only them, and could care less who it effects you. They’re the all about me people, which is a mental illness in itself. Doesn’t matter who has something else going on in their lives, it’s all about me. My issues, my life, and you should want to revolve your decisions around me. This ball and chain have to be gotten rid of so that you can focus on yourself. If you have nothing but me people around you, you spend time trying to appease them while your own life fails. So in the case of these type of people, cut them, and cut them fast.

Now the third group of people are the jealous types. These are the people who see you shining and they would love nothing more than to see you fall. Well, why would people close to you want to see you fail? It goes from a lack of self-worth within that person or people. They look at you and see what they could have been, and express disdain. These are the people who are worse than leaches and me groups. You have to watch this bunch closer than your enemies because they’re already in your camp. They might look at you and think, “They use to be right here with me.” “They don’t deserve what they have.” “If they have what they have, and started with me at the bottom, it means I wasted my life.” These are toxic people and are only going to hurt you in the end.

The last group are the I got the short end of the stick group. They’re the ones who blame everything and everybody else but themselves. The world is out to get me group, and they want you to correct their lives because of it. These people you have to leave behind because they become a hindrance on your progress. And they’re a hindrance because if all you hear is negativity from them all the time, then it’ll start to infiltrate your mind and taint your thinking. Before you know it, your life has fallen off from you trying to help them out. You see, in the end, you have so many people in your life you will lose along the way. It’s painful, but it’s part of your growth in this world. Everyone is not meant to be in your life. And sometimes its comes from the unlikeliest of places such as friends or family.
