Adapt

Going with the flow doesn’t mean that you go up without preparation or go down with regret.

Going with the flow means to adapt and change until the day comes that you control the flow.

Laying back and observing,and deciding the best course of action.That’s going with the flow.

Rationality

Our senses help us to gather information and our reasons help us to find true knowledge.

Superstitions and misconceptions arise when people people accept the information gathered through senses as eternal truth without any reason.They just believe what they see or hear,but don’t reason with it.

A rational animal not using its rational faculty is the biggest flaw there is.It is like buying a product only to find that it is flawed at serving its primary purpose.

Freedom

Earning one’s freedom is essential.What we earn,we use with care.What we get,we use with ease.

Those who consider freedom is expendable are doomed to subjugation.Those who understand its essence – never bow down.

You have the choice to let your freedom wither away.Not everyone has the will nor the brawn to fight for it.But if you are willing to do so,you must prepare yourself for consequences.

In fact,it is quite common to give up on freedom.Addiction,for instance,is one way away from freedom.You start off with a small step and go down the spiral only to find that you can never go back again to being who you were.

People can take their freedom back,of course.But the way back is as painful as it was pleasing in the first place.

For some of us,freedom was taken away and not willingly given up.Some of us were not even born free.The existence of freedom becomes more abstract than reality of reality.

We must help them understand.We must help them remember.We must teach them what freedom is.Once they know the feeling of being free,they will give their all to earn it back.What we earn,we use with care.What we get,we use with ease.

Reinforcement

When you’re trying to change, taking the first step isn’t enough. You have to reinforce your every step to feel the impact to move on to the next step. It can be any miniscule tangible or psychological award. A few words of encouragement to a coffee break, anything will work. Abstinence will plummet your self control and hence your way to the goal. Reinforcement will give you the boost to carry on to the end of the goal.

Independence

You can force someone to work all day long.But the efforts will be the result of compliance to the order rather than fulfilling engagement to work.

That’s why we hate to be managed.May it be an educational institute or workplace or home.We feel bound to rules with no room for flexibility.

Authority suppresses us when in fact autonomy must surround us.Only engagement and honest commitment to work can take us on to the path of innovation.Compliance will only help us survive,but not live life to the fullest.

Achievement

Achievement is the reward of the drive to achieve something.One cannot possess a drive.They can only feel it.It only comes to those who lack something that they always wanted.

If everyone of us got everything that we wanted,then the world would be a place where we could not achieve anything.

Sturdy

Blindly believing in a fact or a fantasy is a mind hazard.Fantasy remains a fantasy unless it is proven to be a fact.A fact that is true today might not be valid tomorrow.Feeding our minds with new facts and fantasies can help us cultivate a fertile scope that can grow anything and can make anything come true.

It is a good thing to stand for what you believe in.But it is important to know (if not accept) that there are other ideas that exist in the world.Keeping yourself updated will go a long way to help you choose and strengthen your beliefs.

We only choose to strengthen something if we believe that it will be resisted or opposed.No one builds a concrete house if there are no storms to destroy your old hut.You can only defend your ideals when you are aware of other ideals that pose a threat or a potential for change.

You can only grow when you choose to learn.And when you choose to learn you cannot discriminate.You need to know everything to face the worst case scenario.That’s why open your mind to new knowledge and experiences to stand above all.

Willpower

Key to self-control is not abstinence.It is reinforcement.

Abstinence will just make you more hungry.Reinforcement will keep the hunger at bay.

Abstinence equals to eternal monotony.Reinforcement equals to reward you earn for your hard work.

People work (whether they like to or not) for the rewards.May it be tangible or intangible.Nobody works for work itself.People use work as means to reach to an end.
