7 dures réalités au sujet de la vie que personne ne semble vraiment ad... Nous aimons généralement penser que nous sommes en contact avec la réalité des choses qui nous entourent. Mais la vérité est que la plupart d’entre nous se protègent des faits désagréables de l’existence afin d’être plus heureux et productifs, écrit Aaron Taube du Business Insider. Les utilisateurs de Quora ont récemment énuméré une série d’exemples de vérités de la vie que personne ne veut généralement admettre malgré leur évidence. Des idées dérangeantes sur l’amour à la méritocratie, voici 7 dures vérités que personne n’aime écouter ou énoncer. ✔. Il est bon de croire en une justice karmique qui fait que les bonnes choses arrivent aux bonnes personnes mais « en réalité, les bonnes choses de la vie ont tendance à arriver aux personnes qui sont belles », estime l’utilisatrice Dania Faruqui. « Nous le nions perpétuellement mais la plupart du temps, une personne attirante a une longueur d'avancesur une personne qui ne l’est pas tant que cela.

You have to give more than you get in return right away. You have to care more about others than they care about you. You have to fight when you are already injured, bloody, and sore.

You have to feel unsure and insecure when playing it safe seems smarter. You have to lead when no one else is following you yet. You have to invest in yourself even though no one else is. You have to look like a fool while you’re looking for answers you don’t have. You have to grind out the details when it’s easier to shrug them off. You have to deliver results when making excuses is an option. You have to search for your own explanations even when you’re told to accept the “facts”. You have to make mistakes and look like an idiot.

You have to try and fail and try again. You have to run faster even though you’re out of breath. You have to be kind to people who have been cruel to you. The things that no one else is doing. You Are Free, Like it or Not. One evening I went with my family to a Thai restaurant for dinner. They seated us near the back, not far from the kitchen doors. A very bubbly waitress brought us our menus, filled our waters and told us to let her know if we needed anything, or had any questions about anything at all. When she came back, we ordered. “Perfect!” She said with a huge smile, taking our menus. She went off to the kitchen. As soon as she was through the doors, her voice changed. “Oh my God, I was so sick this morning! Then she came through the doors again, her waitress face back on, and took orders from a few more tables.

I didn’t know it at the time, but Jean-Paul Sartre had written about a similar scenario to illustrate a human tendency he called bad faith. Sartre believed that we have much more freedom than we tend to acknowledge. This is bad faith: when we convince ourselves that we’re less free than we really are, so that we don’t have to feel responsible for what we ultimately make of ourselves. The 5 Hard Truths About Chasing Success.

There are certain things in life that are inarguably true. Many of these truths are fairly harsh and unforgiving, but yet, they are truths. Benjamin Franklin is famous for saying: “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” These hard truths of life are the elements which will have great impact. The interpretation of these truths is what separates the wolves from the sheep. 1. There is nothing to lose in this life, because everything is fleeting and will eventually end. The guy who makes a bunch of bad decisions and spends his life in and out of prison is going to achieve the exact same outcome as the guy who lives a typical, conservative life, and the guy who chases his huge ambitions and is admired by the masses: death.

Death is the common denominator, so what really matters is what you do in the time that is given to you. It’s up to you. Death is certain. 2. 3. 4. The hippies are wrong. 5. Do things that make you happy.

Deciding to be boring this past Memorial Day, I decided I'd bum around a bit. Searching for a movie to watch, I stumbled across one I haven't seen in probably over a decade – “The Truman Show.”

If you've never seen it, then I highly recommend you do; it's sort of a classic. You may even want to pause reading this article until you've watched it, but I do promise to keep the spoilers to a minimum. For those of you who haven't seen it, “The Truman Show” is a movie about a man born and raised in a little world created just for him. This little world is filled with thousands of hidden cameras that record and air his life on live TV, 24 hours a day, for decades on end. Most importantly, Truman has absolutely no idea any of this is going on.

While watching the movie, I couldn't help but draw some unsettling comparisons between it and the lives we all live today. But this is only the tip of the iceberg. The fact is we're all living our own version of “The Truman Show.” 1. 2. 3. “You hate your job? 4. You Never Wanted It Bad Enough. If you don’t need to be successful, you probably won’t be. That’s the hard truth about getting where you want to be.

You have to want it. Bad. You have to need it. Bad. It has to be an obsession. It can’t be optional. It’s has to be an obsession that ripples through every fiber of your being. You have to want it like you want a cup of cold water in the middle of the summer. It’s about desperation. It’s about not giving yourself any other option but to succeed. When there’s a cushy second prize and an acceptable third place finish, there’s no reason to go for the glory. There’s no urgency to put yourself through the pain and agony from putting it all on the line. And that’s why you’re not successful.

Because you don’t need it bad enough. It’s not the driving drum beat of your soul’s call-to-arms. You wouldn’t admit this out loud — and certainly not in your business mastermind group — but success is optional for you. You’re not serious about being amazing. And so you make excuses.

There are also vast differences between a 20-year-old and a 29-year-old, and when there are so many changes that happen in your 20s, you might start to wonder if you will ever have it all figured out.

But I’ve got some good news — nobody has it all figured out! Here are 20 life lessons everyone should learn in their 20s. 1. I want to remind you of this again. 2. As you progress through your 20s, you just won’t have as many friends as you used to. 3. Life begins to pull you in many directions. 4.

Happiness is Not Your Natural State | Domestic Policy. Photo via Moyan Brenn I came down the stairs at home not long ago to hear our youngest daughter whining.

This is not, to say the least, an unusual experience. Since the day she was born, our youngest has been more inclined to whine and cry than her older sister ever was. On this particular day, her complaint was that the only thing that wasn’t boring for her was to play My Little Pony and her older sister “never, ever, ever wants to play My Little Pony.”

My wife was doing her best to respond with a mix of comfort and firmness. Experiences like these are familiar to anyone who’s raised a child. They are not. Let me say this again bluntly: Happiness and Contentment are NOT the default states for human beings. The default states for human beings are self-centered anger, sadness, and anxiety. Think again about raising children. Once again, our culture obscures what ought to be obvious. Media reinforce this. We’re led to believe that happiness should be our normal state by an even deeper force. 6 Infallible Truths Every Man Should Know – The Blog of Christian McQueen.

An Acid Burn Victim Stars in Viva N Diva’s “Faces of Courage” Campaign. This week, a little known Indian brand called Viva N Diva made headlines around the globe when they announced that instead of choosing from the typical roster of models to serve as the face of its new campaign, they would be using Laxmi Agarwal, the victim of an acid attack, as a part of their newly founded “Faces of Courage” initiative.

Courtesy Viva N Diva According to a press release from the brand, the idea for Agarwal’s campaign first came to designers Manan Shah and Rupesh Jhawar when they were looking through a calendar shoot featuring victims of acid attacks. It reads, “For a moment we had seen beauty in a very different way and all we thought was to capture it to give it a meaning, to remove any speck of being a victim from those eyes and give them a stage, an employment, a platform, and a medium to flaunt it with style.” RELATED: Beauty Vlogger and Acid Attack Survivor Speaks Out:’My Offenders Walk Free While I Have To Go Through Life Without a Face’ This is a modal window.

Heȟáka Sápa (Black Elk) (December 1863 – August 19, 1950)[1] was a famous wičháša wakȟáŋ (medicine man and holy man) and heyoka of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) who lived in the present-day United States, primarily South Dakota.

He was a second cousin of the war chief Crazy Horse. Near the end of his life, Black Elk met with amateur ethnologist John Neihardt and recounted to him his religious vision, events from his life, and details of Lakota culture. Neihardt edited a translated record and published Black Elk Speaks in 1932. The words of Black Elk have since been published in numerous editions, most recently in 2008. There has been great interest in his work among members of the American Indian Movement since the 1970s and by others who have wanted to learn more about a Native American religion. Black Elk's first wife Katie converted to Roman Catholicism, and they had their three children baptized as Catholics.
