Beautiful, Brains, and Goals: IONCLE SAINT LAUREN ONLY THE WEAK GIVE UP Our brains are wired to giving up easily, it’s normal (but not all right). 🤔 Human beings are believed to act upon the “Pleasure Principle”, the instant gratification… Instant gratification is the desire to experience pleasure or fulfillment without delay or deferment. Basically, it’s when you want it; and you want it now. (just in case your wanted to know what it meant.) Yes, so once in a while, wanting to give up is normal. But giving up is not okay.☝️ - ✔️Giving up makes you lose more things than you can imagine. Instant success is a myth, always. Many successful people failed hundreds of times, if they chose to give up instead of working harder to reach their goals, they would never succeed. ✔️Picture in your mind the ultimate result. Keep in your mind the picture of the end result. A visualization of what you want to accomplish will keep you moving forward. I mean, seriously, you don’t want to stop partway through. The feeling of being a quitter isn’t pleasant. You are a winner! ✔️Remember why you started and how much you really wanted it. Think back to the moment that this project, goal, or concept was conceived. Remember the joy and thrill of the adventure ahead? At the beginning, you had a goal in mind; a beautiful picture etched in your mind of the finished task. Beginning was simple; carrying through has become difficult. Going back to the beginning brings into focus the purpose of your endeavor. The memory of anticipation of the job accomplished is stirred up again when you begin to contemplate the reason you began in the first place. Breathe in deep and recall your purpose. - Don’t give up! - givingup success millionairementor

Arguing, Life, and Logic: pokpok of color @catharticwords If you think a woman can only have an abortion if she was raped,youre saying a woman has to be violated before she has rights to her body L1 desisupremacy Repost from @desisupremacy: "(TW: rape mention, abortion) Here are my two cents on this reasoning that I've been thinking lately. So most anti-choicers have at least accepted that it is acceptable for a rape victim to have an abortion. Regardless of who gets an abortion, you are still preventing the formation of a potential child. So the common anti-choice argument of "killing an innocent baby" fails with this logic. In other words, if an anti-choicer can accept a rape victim getting an abortion, they clearly are not as concerned about the fetus' life as they claim. They are against people with a uterus who CHOSE to have sex. They believe that because a woman (or a person considered as a woman in a cisnormative society) is paying a punishment for consenting to sex when she-he-they get pregnant, and that said pregnant person should be forced to undergo this consequence of consenting to sex. With that said, I call bullshit on most (key word) anti-choicers "concern for the child" and really just link their opinion on abortion to their hatred of female sexuality. They can't argue against the vulnerability of a rape survivor so they accept the survivor getting an abortion, but a person who got pregnant from consensual sex is "selfish and immoral" and should therefore be punished by controlling their bodily autonomy. ~S"

America, Bernie Sanders, and Beyonce: Obama Named 'Most Admired Man' Again, Beats Out Trump @balleralert Obama Named 'Most Admired Man' Again, Beats Out Trump - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Former President BarackObama has been named the 'most admired man' for the tenth year in a row, according to a poll released by Gallup News. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier in the month, Gallup surveyed 1,049 adults, asking which man and woman in the United States of America they admired most. This past Wednesday, those results were revealed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While Trump came in at 14%, Obama took the leading spot, sitting at 17% and beating Trump out by 3% in the men's poll. Hillary Clinton-who has held the 'most admired woman' title a total of 22 times, retained it for the 16th consecutive year, coming in at 9% to Michelle Obama's 7%. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this happens to be Clinton's lowest percentage that she's received since 2002. Last year, she stood at 12%, while Barack Obama scored at 22%. But, although this year's percentage rates were relatively low, it's unquestionable that, even outside of the White House, everybody loves Obama! Obviously, that trumps all... even Mr. Trump, himself. No pun intended. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pope Francis, Rev. Billy Graham, John McCain, Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders, Bill Gates, Benjamin Netanyahu, Jeff Bezos, The Dalai Lama, and Mike Pence followed Donald Trump in the poll. Falling behind Michelle Obama was Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Warren, Angela Merkel, Queen Elizabeth II, Condoleezza Rice, Melania Trump, Nikki Haley, Duchess Kate Middleton, and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trump had 35% of Republican voters who chose him as their most admired man. Obama led among Democrats, with 39% making him their top choice. Independents also elected Obama over Trump by a three-point margin.

Christmas, Cookies, and Family: A couple of months ago, when I told General Krulak, the former Commandant of the MarineCorps, now the chair of the NavalAcademy Board of Visitors, that we were having General JamesMattis speak this evening, he said, “Let me tell you a Jim Mattis story.” Gen. Krulak said, when he was Commandant of the Marine Corps, every year, starting about a week before Christmas, he and his wife would bake hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of Christmas cookies. They would package them in small bundles. Then on Christmas day, he would load his vehicle. At about 4 a.m., Gen. Krulak would drive himself to every Marine guard post in the Washington-Annapolis-Baltimore area and deliver a small package of Christmas cookies to whatever Marines were pulling guard duty that day. He said that one year, he had gone down to Quantico as one of his stops to deliver Christmas cookies to the Marines on guard duty. He went to the command center and gave a package to the lance corporal who was on duty. He asked, “Who’s the officer of the day?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it’s Brigadier General Mattis.” And General Krulak said, “No, no, no. I know who Gen. Mattis is. I mean, who’s the officer of the day today, Christmas day?” The lance corporal, feeling a little anxious, said, “Sir, it is Brigadier General Mattis.” General Krulak said that, about that time, he spotted in the back room a cot, or a daybed. He said, “No, Lance Corporal. Who slept in that bed last night?” The lance corporal said, “Sir, it was Brigadier General Mattis.” About that time, General Krulak said that General Mattis came in, in a duty uniform with a sword, and General Krulak said, “Jim, what are you doing here on Christmas day? Why do you have duty?” General Mattis told him that the young officer who was scheduled to have duty on Christmas day had a family, and General Mattis decided it was better for the young officer to spend Christmas Day with his family, and so he chose to have duty on Christmas Day. General Krulak said, “That’s the kind of officer that Jim Mattis is.” (The story above was told by Dr. Albert C. Pierce, the Director of the Center for the Study of Pro.
