EXPRESSIONS OF SUCCESS, Author.js.

Game day for 2021 holidays

No need to toss out the old games you left behind at your parents house. Dust off the old “Connect Four” or buy and a new one. Today is the day the adults get to play an old game with a new twist.

How to play “Connect Four” with a twist.

  • Divide the family into groups of two
    • Choose which twist you want to play, or create your own
  • You will need paper and pens
    • You may need one person a head of time to answer the family questions and not be apart of the games
  • I have created topics, in order to play your color you must get the question right
    • The twist is there is no waiting turns.
  • By getting the correct answers to the trivia first, creates your play. The faster you answer the greater your chance of four in row first

Are you ready for everyday life or are you scrambling to get a costume together? With a few simple accessories to your daily activities you can have the same attributes as a superhero of your choice.

Don’t worry these few steps can be done as fast as a change in the phone booth.

fresh start of the day

Confidence in life

  • Confidence has power to increase your productivity
  • Daily affirmations has the power to increase self love
  • Lack of fear has the power to increase bravery
  • Stop, the action of comparing oneself to other has the power to increase the knowledge one’s own value

No joke, with confidence you won’t hide in a cave all day, rather you will have the super hero power to face life head on.

Alone or with your side kick

Accomplish goals

  • Setting goals increases the power of the future
  • Monitoring those goals increases the power of self checking
  • Revising daily actions increases the power of success
  • Success increases the power to meet the goals set in place, and that is amazing

You may not have came to this planet in a rocket and glowing rocks don’t harm you, however you are in need of finding out your true self and the power within.

Setting goals ALLOWS you to see your power

long-term Positive actions

  • Strength, in confidence to meet new people
  • Speed, to meet goals
  • Intelligence, leading to a promotion, or self business
  • Exceptional, acts of kindness

Positive actions can lead to a decrease in bullying. No matter if you have 2 or 8 arms, all you have to do is say please and thank you, in order to get what you need in life.

Manners go a long way, no matter what PLANET you are from

The Fight against inhumanity

  • Equality is away of life that always increases power
  • Standing up against bullying in the office place, personal relations, or community in which you live will take the power away from the bully
  • Recording the drama may help, but power is increased when action is taken to save another’s life
  • Hold yourself responsible before you point and judge others this will increase the power within yourself

I think you are hero, but if you do not think so. ASK YOURSELF:

what do I need to change that I to can be a superhero?

what are you great at? Give it to the world that they may see your greatness

Knowledge is an accessory; like a superhero’s sidekick. Without it no story would be complete. .js.

Justice in Respect, Expression of Success

Author: js. Posted: May 2021

Respect defined. Noun. To have deep admiration for someone or something. A state of feeling to be courteous, to be considerate. To be a tradition.

Verb. To have self-discipline, to applaud someone or something. To deeply admire someone or something by your own choice. To build trust or a safe place/space.

Respect is a learned behavior.

Respect is the teacher who sits on the desk as they teach, and the student that can not wait to do the same.

forth grade teacher of js, kindest teacher

We all have different ways to define respect. One thing is clear; expressing respect is less visible than disrespect. Disrespect is seen with body language and heard with harsh words.

Keep it Simple. Creating a list of disrespect may be easier to build. When we do the opposite our relationships may blossoms

Since 2021, it appears that negative attitudes and actions are popping up everywhere. We have a choice how we respond to life’s event.

Goals, expressions of success
  • WhAT_IS_DisResPeCT
  • Procrastination
  • Lack of sympathy
  • Harmful word
  • Lateness
  • Constant frustration
  • Lack of call back, emails, or personal response
  • Denial of an action and no remorse of any
  • Negative form of body language
  • Vocal threat of harm or violence
  • Negative jokes or Comments

Time to Dig Deeper?

now that Disrespect is understood

Without respect relationships won’t last

 There are four stages within the lose of respect

Creating.

The time in which you first meet someone excitement is the fuel building and driving you. Quality time and questions build the relationship to a deeper level. Both parties have a vision what the relationship should be, therefore, the actions are incorporated to bring the vision life between the two set people.

Managing.

Relationship is still together, however you are having to now try in create ways to be together. The time when connecting no longer seems to be a normal habit. Energy is required to be together, rather than creating energy.

Defending.

Disconnect is often seen, in passions and goals. The relationship is managing to stay above water. Sometimes one has to let go so that the other may live.

Blaming.

Rather than letting go, there is an overwhelming amount of blaming that deflected. When our words and actions are at a hi level of disrespect. This will continue until one of the parties walks away, or help is sought out to save the relationship. Many times when it has reached this point disillusion is best due to the emotional and physical aspects in relationship. (in my none medical or doctor thoughts)

The above four parts of disrespect, Cited: “Ten Powerful Phrases for Positive People.” pg 144. Copy Right 2008. Hachette Book Group Inc. New York NY.

It is time to aspire for truth, that it may inspire justice.

Truth, because of our lack of respect that is growing beyond numbers in the past few years. When blaming everyone and everything for the world in which we live, it is fact; quite the contrary, life is a result of our personal actions. It is in fact case in point that our dilemma and struggles where created by our choice of respect or disrespect. Allow me to explain.

When an event in our life happens, we generate thought about the event. Leading to us generating an emotion and a thought again. We may generate an action, whether the action is positive or negative is up to us. We can choose to feel sorry for yourselves leaving our lives to remain in its currant state. OR we can begin to take actions that will bring about change in our lives. The choice to remain emotional or become active is up to each of us.

As man thinks in his heart, so he is.

Proverbs. 23:7

Choice is yours: RESPECT and make a positive atmosphere for the world in which we live. Or the latter. When we blame others it is a form of DISRESPECT that often takes over our lives.

Remember: It is our duty to seek out the truth of any area, results may bring justice to the truth. Seek the truth in your life that justice may ring in your actions. Respect if no one else, yourself that you may free yourself of discord.

Fact: Disrespect only leads to deep pain and suffering. Self-care is self-love. How can we respect others when we do not even respect ourselves.

  • Respect starts with you. Respect is taught in the home. Practicing respect is an important part of growth.

Return for part two, equality is respect.

Aspire for the truth that you may inspire justice.
