A lot of research has been done during the last decade to understand the role of positive thinking on health and death. Current studies revealed that stress can trigger irregular heart beats that can lead to sudden death. It is no mystery that stress causes a lot of issues. A new research has studied over 600 people with heart diseases. Their assignment was to complete a survey about their mood and overall attitude. The results were clear; people with the highest scores of happiness were more likely to exercise and were less likely to die during a five-year follow-up period.1 Thoughts are very powerful - the sooner we realize that the sooner we can start living the life of our dreams.

Is positive thinking enough to change a life? No, because there are two components of the mind that are very different from each other. There is the conscious mind and the sub-conscience mind. The conscious mind is our creative mind . The sub-conscious mind is equivalent to a tape recorder. It records experiences and plays it to us. The sub-conscious mind is more powerful because it has all the programs that are not always supporting us but that we believe in, which is the source of our problems. An example of a programing is driving a car. The person driving does not think about the techniques after a while. An automatic- behavior occurs. A program that is not serving us is the believe that we are controlled by our genes. We put ourselves in a position of a victim whereas the truth is that our mind can overcome almost any illness. Genes are just blueprints, the mind reads the genes thus we have the power to control how the mind reads the genes.

Typically people say they have good intentions but yet nothing seems to be right. Although, their conscious mind was positive they did not pay attention to the sub-conscience mind. In order to see results in a positive attitude, the...

A Christian's Perspective on Debt

...“A Christian’s Perspective on Debt” The year 1990began a 10 year downward spiral into the pits of hell for me. After twenty years of marriage, my husband and I decided to get a divorce. I was left with nothing…no house, no furniture, a car I could not afford and the responsibility of providing for four children. All of a sudden, I was left alone to run a household and to raise four children singlehandedly. I was as green as grass, did not have a clue. I thought I could handle it all since I am a smart, educated, independent woman with a good job.I had excellent credit and a wallet full of credit cards. Never before had I been responsible for paying bills, my ex-husband paid foreverything. All of a sudden, I had a house note, car note, insurance, utilities, clothes, food, credit cards, and the list of bills just kept going on and onand on. Before I could get one bill paid the next one was in the mailbox. I knew that I had a decent job with a good pay but I was spending money faster than I was making it and pretty soon I did not make enough money to cover everything. Every time I turned around something was broken and needed to be repaired or one of the kids needed something. I began to usea credit card to purchase gas for my car to go to work. I used a different credit card to buy groceries. I paid tuition with a credit card. I bought books with a credit card. Pretty soon, I began to usea credit card to pay other credit cards. I was trapped in a vicious cycle of debt. I......

The Secret

...THE SECRET by Rhonda Byrne - Reaction Paper The Secret is a book written by Rhonda Byrne, which is known as the best-selling book in 2006. I was amazed when I entered the classroom and found out that we’ll be viewing/watching the DVD about The Secret. I have heard about this documentary since I was in 3rd year college and by this time I finally got the chance to watch a masterpiece. I wanted to watch this since but I never had the chance to because I got so busy with school activities but right now I think I am lucky that I am a part who knows The Secret and I am thankful to know it.  To begin with, The Secret is a life changing, it makes you financially independent, it let your mind powerful and lastly, it will make you successful. The Secret is kept hidden from thousands of people and they let their ignorance spread to people; it was buried, coveted, suppressed and it was never revealed to the public. According to Bob Proctor, a philosopher, the secret gives you anything you want; happiness, health, and wealth. He also said that “we become what we think”, which means whatever we think it predict our future. The law of Attraction is The Secret; what we see, hold, or even our thoughts are equivalent to what we need, want or even demand and it attracts to you. Like what I watched and jotted down, an optimistic thought is a thousand’s more powerful than pessimistic thought. The more you think, the more it will happen because the universe is reacting to what you want;......

Themes and Corresponding Works of Gender Roles/ Marriage

...In this essay, I would like to compare and contrast gender roles/marriage and primarily show through two literary works found in my textbook the differences and likenesses of each story, as they are being told to the audience. The short stories that I have chosen to discuss for this essay are “The Necklace”, by Guy de Maupassant and “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”, by James Thurber. I will try to compare and contrast both stories and give the audience a brief summary, explaining the likenesses and differences and engaging the reader, while doing so. In the short summary of the short story "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty". This short-story tells the tale of Walter Mitty while on a trip into town with his wife, the bossy and serious Mrs. Mitty. Walter is sadly incompetent of doing many things; he forgets a lot of things, is very absent-minded while driving, and cannot handle the simplest tasks. But, what makes Walter unique throughout this short-story is his imagination. While Walter goes through his tasks, he escapes into a world of many fantasies, each brought on by reality. While driving his car he starts to day dream that he is a commander on a “Navy hydroplane" going through a storm. (Clugston, 2010). While passing a hospital, he believes he is a famous surgeon, known throughout the world for saving lives. He imagines he is being interrogated in court on a case, when he hears a newsboy shouting about a trial. Also, when he is waiting for his wife, he imagines......

Hapiness

...brain's cranial fluid which is affected by your thoughts, diet/nutrition, exercise, rest, environment and physiology. Since your thoughts have the biggest impact on the brains chemistry, there’s where I’m going to focus. When you have positive thoughts, your brain secretes positive chemicals and increases the power of your brain. When you have negative thoughts, your brain secretes negative chemicals and decreases the power of your brain. This is a simple, but profound concept to realize. Happiness depends on it. Your thoughts from outside stimuli have two components: facts and emotions. While you may not be able to control the facts you encounter in your life, you can choose how to respond emotionally to these facts. If you choose positive emotions, you will be happy. If you choose negative emotions, you will become unhappy. Your happiness depends on what emotions you choose to experience and how you live your life. For becoming happy in relative thinking there are no general rules. Happiness means nothing more than feeling well as result of an action, the deep experience of something being alright. This feeling completely depends on what is considered by happiness in your circle of thought (local ethics). You don't find happiness, you choose happiness; it is a process of discovering who you are, who you want to be and paving the way to happiness by doing what brings you the most meaning and contentment to your life over the long run. ......

Love

...because that was what she was used to? Was it alright for her to pull the strings in everyone else’s life because she wasn’t happy with hers? Does love justify these actions with a powerful claim to make you jealous, envious, and malicious to the receiver? Hedda Gabbler used the absence of love to continue to hurt people who cared about her and loved her. Hedda was a controlling kind of person who basically cared about what other people thought of her more than what she thought of herself. The fact that she was bored with her life wasn’t any better so I guess she thought she was justified in making others life’s worst. I think this was an excuse because her father never showed her love at all when he was alive. The fact that she had his picture still watching over her she was never really fully able to show her true emotions. She would never be happy because of her past and she’s paying for it in her present. I thought this is just like so many people in the world today, even though she had a father she probably couldn’t express herself like she wanted to because it would be looked down upon. That’s why she was never happy in the house she had or the husband she married it all was a part of her status. When Love Bourg came back into the picture you could tell that they had something going on because she couldn’t let Mrs. Elvsted be happy and she would tell all of her secrets to make him not want to be around. This reminded me of the mean girls in high school who used to......

Speech About Happiness

...75 year old woman. Whoever sees her thinks she's 40 years old, maximum. I always wondered what was the secret the kept her looks so youthful. I thought it must be a face cream, lots of spa sessions or something like that. The other day while visiting her, I decided to ask, "Grandma, what helps you look so young?" She replied: "I am always happy my child." I found that a bit odd to be honest. How can someone be this old and never face pain or misery? It is statistically impossible. So I asked her one more time "Grandma, how is that possible?" She replied wisely once again: "Every human being has the choice of being happy or not. It is a simple matter of being positive all the time, whatever life threw at me, I looked...

Ethics

...is Your Approach to Life? By DeAnn Adler After many years of living, I still don’t have life completely figured out and I’m assuming I never will, but age has given me some wisdom and I have hopefully learned a few things in all that time. I have not one philosophy of life, but many, and all of them put together make me the person I am today. During my senior year in high school over thirty-two years ago, the teacher in my civics class asked what we students thought was the secret to a happy life. A blond, curly headed boy in the class answered that he thought “everything in moderation” was the key to a successful, happy life. I’ve never forgotten those words, even after all this time, and they’ve become a part of who I am and how I’ve lived my life. In ancient Greece, the temple of Apollo at Delphi bore the inscription Meden Agan - 'Nothing in excess'. 1 The ancient Greeks knew what my high school classmate had—that moderation makes life run more smoothly. Moderation in this day and age is not always hip though. What are cool are extremes, from extreme sports to extreme home makeovers. But it seems that for a lot of people, straying from the path of moderation causes nothing but heartache, from the drinker who loses everything to the bottle, to the gambler who loses his life’s savings. The more extreme our wants, the more we must accumulate to make ourselves happy. But I also think moderation can make for an extremely boring life. It’s a life played safely......

Jane Eyre

...Secrets Have Consequences In Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre, the main characters Jane Eyre, Edward Rochester, and Jane’s aunt, Mrs. Reed, learn that one lie or secret can accumulate into many lies or secrets and affects everyone around them as time progresses. In the beginning of the story Jane’s aunt, Mrs. Reed, hides things from Jane as a child, which affects her as a young adult, and Jane learns the secret of Thornfield which not only changes her life, but many others as well. In other words, characters’ lives, personalities, and so much more can change due to lies and secrets, just how Mrs. Reed keeps secrets and lies to Jane as a child that affect her as a young adult. Initially, Mrs. Reed kept secrets and lied to Jane as a young child to not allow Jane to have a good life as a child, and an adult due to her jealousy. For an example, as a child, Jane was punished for actions she did not do, but her cousin John did and got away with because of Mrs. Reed’s jealously. As her punishment, she was sent to the red-room which frightened Jane because her uncle, Mr. Reed, passed away in it. In the red-room there was a secret drawer in the closet. Inside of the secret drawer there were papers, clothes, a jewel-casket, a portrait of Mr. Reed, “and in those last words lies the secret of the red-room—the spell which kept it so lonely in spite of its grandeur” (8). While Jane was in the red-room she began to wonder why she deserved such awful treatment and what has she done to her......

What Is Friendship?

...Friends are people without whom your life wouldn’t be complete. They are the people who you know for ages, or even if you don’t you feel like you were born on the same day. They will always be by your side and will help you with any troubles. In the dictionary you can find three definitions of friendship: 1. The quality or condition of being friends 2. A friendly relationship 3. Friendliness, good will In order to know what all these definitions mean we need to figure out what is the definition for friends. A friend is defined as a person whom one knows, likes, and trusts. So friendship is when two people know each other well, and trust each other. Friendship is the relationship between two people who really care about each other. Your friendship will keep you happy, but it is not easy. Friendship demands time and effort, and sometimes you have to step over your pride and put yourself on the place of your friend, and see what she feels even if you think you are correct. But in exchange, a friend can provide a lot of support and comfort in good times and bad. Many things are needed to make friendship a real one, including trustworthiness, support, honesty, and loyalty. Friendship is supposed to make both people happy, and enjoying their relationship. Yes, each person has an individual character and it is hard to find people who share your thoughts. Also, it might occur that at one point of life you are friends, and then......

My Secret

...My Secret To most of existence there is an inner and outer world. Skin, bark, surface of the ocean open to reveal other realities. What is inside shapes and sustains what appears. I walk off the subway. Cars, people, ambitions charge by. City thrashes without hesitation or apology. No stillness. No pause. Peop le do not see where they are. Traffic stumbles by and feet carry forgotten objects. Eyes see only the next walk signal, the next cash register, the upward battle ahead. They tell me I am home. Some salamander species are fully aquatic throughout life, som e take to water intermittently, and some are entirely terrestrial as adults. Uniquely among vertebrates, they are capable of regenerating lost limbs, as well as other body parts. The apartment. My parents sit still in their chairs, bodies frozen, emotions flooding towards me. Walls of memories line our apartment. Classes, friends, thoughts? They are excited to have me back, to remember what it was like with me here and them there. A nd while they deserve news, their questions ring chaotic in my ears. Remind ers of the commotion outside, of people expecting more, pushing ahead. A non - stop pace. Existence outside oneself. I pause and tell them I need a minute. Just one second and the door closes. Eyes and ears shut. I am alone again. City melts, and questions q uietly float away. I can remember the soft wind and red stones. With silence around, I can breathe again. To a certain kind of......
