Maya Angelou said it best “if someone shows you who they are believe them.”

Brendan Dunne

Stop“When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” ~Donald Miller.

“I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.” ~Bruce Lee.

“You can’t expect people to be like you.” ~Being Erica

Some of you will be surprised to know some people act in a certain way because they believe that’s how somebody like them is expected to act. That reminds of the following quote: “All the world’s a stage,. And all the men and women merely players.” ~William Shakespeare

In the same way, our expectations of people often prevent us from seeing them for who they really are too, for example, you expect doctors to look and behave like doctors, but they are only men and women; and just like you, who have their own expectations of how they…

Thank you

800+ followers that’s some pretty kool stuff man. I started this blog in 2018 and I didn’t start really taking it serious until January 2019. I remember doing some research on blogging and I came across a video that said most beginning bloggers tap out before the reach 50 post. I said dang. That’s the life expectancy of a beginning blogger 50 post. Might I remind you that I was only at 10 post and 11 followers at the time. I don’t even remember anything else that the person said on the video. I spaced out at beginning bloggers tapping out at 50 post. I said “I don’t who he think he’s talking to but I ain’t tapping out.” So I took the challenge of surviving and man 800+ wonderful followers and 400+ post later. Ya boy is still here. But there’s more to do. I’m still climbing those steps and there’s more to learn. So I just want to say thanks. Also I know most of you leave me comments on my post. Sorry that I get them answering them like 17hrs later. I do this thing where I’m up at night just enjoying being off of work. So I’m chilling doing what I love. Writing content, raiding the refrigerator, binge watching YouTube, quora. After I post I normally knock out so I can go back to work later on that same day in the afternoon. I know I’m terrible at replying back. So I’m not dodging anybody. Your support through comments, likes, subscribing and etc really means alot to me. 2) I am very introverted so I am still trying to cope with the fact that people really like my content and are invested in what I have to say through writing. So sometimes I don’t even know what to say back. That’s why you may get a smiley face or three yellow thumbs up or a definitely, facts, appreciate it or no problemo anytime anytime. I put so much thought, feeling and emotion into the writing that when it comes to the response I’m honestly shocked and touched. But it means alot to me. I just catch me off guard and my replies be dull. But once again thank you.

Reblog: Everybody has the ability to exhibit some form of genius

Motivation & Environment

The next time you see a picture of your role model—Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King Jr., Sir Isaac Newton, or any great person who ever lived in the past—realize that you can always reach the level they attained—you can even surpass it.

You don’t have to be good with mathematics, physics, basketball, or a specific field or specialty in order to experience what people sometimes call a “genius level of thinking”.

To be a genius at what you love doing, regularly exercise your imagination

Follow your heart, and don’t try to follow the path of other people you idolize just because they are outstanding geniuses. Although it is very important to have role models sources of inspiration, it is much more important to follow your own path, and be persistent and creative in exercising your imagination.

If you exercise your imagination conscientiously, you will unfold your inner genius or unlimited…
