How to Become A Social Badass

How to Become A Social Badass
I’m tired of being a little girl when it comes to meeting new people. To rid myself and others of this pathetic habit, I’ve put together a step-by-step guide on overcoming social anxiety taking from other articles, books and my own experimentation. So what is a ‘social badass,’ you ask? A social badass is an individual who dominates social situations without anxiety or trepidation of any kind. The Basics Before we get to any intimate social interactions, we need to master the basics with some 2-second strangers. 1) Make Eye Contact If someone asks you what you’re staring at, just smile and respond, “Sorry, I thought you were an old friend.” 2) Say Hi When you’re comfortable making eye contact, throw in a quick ‘Hello’ with a smile. 3) Add a Greeting ‘Good morning/afternoon/evening’ usually does the trick. Warning: Some people will completely ignore you and not respond, but don’t be discouraged. Social Badass Challenges Make Yourself a Spectacle You get the idea. Take on a Persona Anchoring

Altru-Hedonism: A New Perspective on Pleasure & Helping Others Altru-Hedonism is a mash-up of the terms altruism (selfless concern for the welfare of others) and hedonism (the pursuit of pleasure). Normally these terms are considered antonyms, which would make my made-up word a complete oxymoron. I aim to convince you of just the opposite. Note: For you smartasses out there, yes we all know that helping other people feels good. This post does eventually transcend common sense :) Altru-Hedonism can be summed up very well in a little memory exercise. WHAT? Altru-Hedonism (noun) - the act of maximizing one’s own pleasure by seeking to help others The key word in that definition is maximizing. But Charity is a Chore! Why does helping others have such a bad rap? You don’t need to make sacrifices or break a sweat to lend someone a hand. What about drugs, sex and nice things? Don’t get me wrong, those ‘vices’ all feel fantastic. Still Not Convinced? Next time you have an opportunity to help someone, try a simple cost-benefit analysis.

Dalai Lama tells his Facebook friends that religion "is no longer adequate" Well, he'd hardly be the first Buddhist to say something like this. From what I've read, there are already lots of Buddhists, and historical Buddhist movements in various countries, who are atheistic and who prefer to return to Buddhism's roots as a kind of self-help, personal psychological and philosophical system—and yes, I realize I'm hugely oversimplifying that ideological stripe of Buddhism—and that's fine. And if this helps the world be a better place, cool. I'm all for it. But as an atheist I had already got to this point without making sand paintings, spinning prayer wheels or staring at stupas or rock gardens to shut off all mental processes and get to Satori. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong.

How do we achieve and appreciate success? Success is the topic of a thousand clichés, songs, and inspirational quotes; it’s conquering the proverbial mountain, or winning the proverbial foot race. It is elusive, yet we cling to the hope that, someday, we will acquire it. We not only pursue success, we crave it desperately as we climb the ladders and jump the hurdles that present themselves along our paths. First, we must get a major misconception out of the way. The good news is that you are completely in control of that, and therefore in control of your success. The last and most important facet of success is that you will not achieve it alone. Surround yourself with people who share your passion, and they will share in your success, celebrating your victories with you.Tweet In the same way, they will pick you up when you feel overwhelmed. This all may seem rather wishy-washy, but isn’t that the whole idea of success? If you believe that you can succeed, you will.

Barlaam and Josaphat A Christian depiction of Josaphat, 12th Century manuscript Balauhar and Budasaf or Bilawhar wa-Yudasaf is a legendary Islamic telling of the story of Siddhartha Gautama originating in the Sogdian language (Middle Iranian).[1] The tale came into Christianity as the story of Sts. Barlaam and Josaphat, who were venerated in both the Eastern and Western churches. Buddhist original[edit] It was ultimately derived, through a variety of intermediate versions (Arabic and Georgian), from the life story of the Buddha.[2][3] Wilfred Cantwell Smith (1981)[4] traced the story from a 2nd to 4th century Sanskrit Mahayana Buddhist text, to a Manichee version, which then found its way into Muslim culture as the Arabic Kitab Bilawhar wa-Yudasaf (Book of Bilawhar and Yudasaf), which was current in Baghdad in the 8th century. Islamic version[edit] The name changed from Budasaf to Yudasaf, then to Yuzasaf.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16] Arabic[edit] Sogdian, Turfan, Uyghur[edit] Hebrew[edit] Persian[edit] Yuzasif...
