Candace Lang's Daily Reflections

  1. 1. DAILY REFLECTIONS…By: Candace Lang
  2. 2. NEGATIVE EMOTION TREE • The trunk of the tree is the tendency to blame other people. • Stop blaming other people and making excuses. • Stop blaming your parents. • Bad relationships. • When you blame other people, you give your power away. High energy comes when you think very positively about your possibilities. • Anytime you blow off steam, get pissed off, or if u use a lot of emotional energy throughout the day, the less energy you have to use on the things you want to spend it on. • There are no failures in life, there is only feedback. • Is it about the person? Is it about the situation?
  3. 3. DEFINITION OF A FULLY-FUNCTIONING PERSON • Take very little value in the opinions of others. • “I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to.” • “I do it because I choose to do it.” • I can do anything I put my mind to and I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to. And I can do it.
  4. 4. ” ““And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
  5. 5. ” ““You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
  6. 6. ” ““Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
  7. 7. FEARS OF FAILURE • “Hey, I can do that.” • Tell everyone that they can do whatever they set their mind to. The more you believe others can do it, the more you believe YOU can do it.
  8. 8. ” “ On vacation recently I was reading this book by [physicist and Nobel laureate] Richard Feynmann. He had cancer, you know. In this book he was describing one of his last operations before he died. The doctor said to him, ‘Look, Richard, I'm not sure you're going to make it.’ And Feynmann made the doctor promise that if it became clear he wasn't going to survive, to take away the anesthetic. Do you know why? Feynmann said, ‘I want to feel what it's like to turn off.’ That's a good way to put yourself in the present--to look at what's affecting you right now and be curious about it even if it's bad.
  10. 10. ELEGANCE- THE POWER TO EXPLAIN MUCH WHILE ASSUMING LITTLE. • the quality of being pleasingly ingenious and simple; neatness • the quality of being graceful and stylish in appearance or manner; style.

  17. 17. DO NOT LET FEAR STOP YOU. HTTPS://WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/WATCH?V=NJJYVROIJIA The only one that can prove them right or wrong is you. I am the only one holding myself back. Am I willing to get past the wall or is it going to stop me? Those brick walls signify how bad you want something. Am I willing to see my endeavor through to the end? In reality, it is all up to you. You have a choice every single day where you are going to spend your life, where you spend your money, who you spend your time with. They are not afraid to create their own opportunities, they know where they are going to end up.
  20. 20. every great change starts like falling dominoes
  21. 21. JOBS
  22. 22. From The Discourses Of Epictetus: That A Man Should Be One Man. Consider these things- Whether you are willing at such a price to gain freedom, peace, and an untroubled spirit. And if not, then attempt it not, nor, like a child, play now the philosopher, then the tax gatherer, then the orator, then the Procurator of Caesar. For these things agree not among themselves; and, good or bad, it behooves you to be one man. You should be perfecting either ruling your own ruling faculty or your outward well-being; spending your art either on the life within or the life without; that is to say, you must hold your place either among the sages or the vulgar.
  23. 23. going small is ignoring all the things you could do and doing what you should do.
  24. 24. • Be Fabulously Well Dressed For The Occasion • Code Of Conduct For The Occasion
  25. 25. FROM THE DISCOURSES OF EPICTETUS THAT A MAN SHOULD BE ONE MAN. So you wish to conquer the Olympic games? And I, too, by the Gods; and a fine thing it would be. But mark the preferences and the consequences, and then set to work. You must go under discipline, eat by rule, abstain from dainties, exercise yourself at the appointed hour, in heat or cold, whether you will or no, drink nothing cold, now wine at will; in a word: you must give yourself over to the trainer as to a physician. Then in the contest itself there is the digging race, and you are likely enough to dislocate your wrist, or turn your ankle, to swallow a great deal of dust, to be soundly drubbed, and after all these things to be defeated. If having considered all these things, you are still in mind to enter for the contest, then do so. But without consideration you will turn from one thing to another like a child, who now plays the wrestler, now the gladiator, now sounds the trumpets, then declaims like an actor; and so you, too, will be first an athlete, then a gladiator, then an orator, then a philosopher, and nothing with your whole soul; but as an ape you mimic everything you see, and be charmed with one thing after another. For you approached nothing with consideration nor regularity, but rashly, and with a cold desire. And thus some men, having seen a philosopher, and heard discourse like that of Euphrates desire that they may also become philosophers. But, O man! Consider first what it is you are about to do, and then inquire of your own nature whether you can carry it out. Will you be a Pentathlos, or a wrestler? Then, scan your arms and thighs; try your loins. For different men are made of different ends. Think you, you can be a sage, and continue to eat and drink and be wrathful and take offense just as you were wont? Nay, but you must watch and labor and withdraw yourself from your household, and be despised by any serving boy, and be ridiculed by your neighbors, and take the lower place everywhere, in honors, in authority, in courts of justice, in dealings of every kind.

But winning only measures how hard you've worked and how physically talented you are; it doesn't particularly define you beyond those characteristics. Losing on the other hand, really does say something about who you are. Among other things it measures are: do you blame others, or do you own the loss? Do you analyze your failure, or just complain about bad luck?

  72. 72. We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special. Stephen Hawking We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet. Stephen Hawking Life would be tragic if it weren't funny. Why are we here? Where do we come from? Traditionally, these are questions for philosophy, but philosophy is dead. Stephen Hawking We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet. Stephen Hawking

  82. 82. Take risks, and expect to make lots of mistakes, because creativity is a numbers game. Work hard, and take frequent breaks, but stay with it over time. Do what you love, because creative breakthroughs take years of hard work. Develop a network of colleagues, and schedule time for freewheeling, unstructured discussions. Most of all, forget those romantic myths that creativity is all about being artsy and gifted and not about hard work. They discourage us because we’re waiting for that one full-blown moment of inspiration. And while we’re waiting, we may never start working on what we might someday create.
  83. 83. 1. Keep things flat. Out of sight, out of mind holds true for information. Avoid nesting information. Keep it flat and simple where you can. Think in terms of iTunes or a playlist.

Just by asking the question whether you’re optimizing for fast filing or for fast lookup will get you improving your information management in the right direction.

  94. 94. ” “ “Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.
  95. 95. ” “Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering. Miguel Angel Ruiz

  101. 101. ” “
  102. 102. "It is paradoxical that tragedy stimulates the spirit of ridicule ... ridicule, I suppose, is an attitude of defiance; we must laugh in the face of our helplessness against the forces of nature – or go insane.” —Chaplin on comedy and tragedy in The Gold Rush
