on my guest post,what is success someone made a comment with a very valid point.
I will attempt to answer it by breaking it into parts and answering them one at a time,but it will have one overall message.
“Despite this whole ‘empowering poem‘, which states very obvious things, btw, the advertisements usually win out. That is how the world works. They tell you that you are missing something and that you need it- and then you want it.”
yes,my poem does state very obvious things.sometimes we have to hear the same things,the things that we all think we know already,in order to really understand them and apply them in real life.
It’s true,the advertisements usually do win us over at the end.we live in an age of very low self-esteem,and people do tend to grab at any chance to get everything,but we also live in a very fast- paced one,so we also want it quickly.
so,we buy them and we listen to them.
but,it’s all really a matter of choice-we can choice to listen to them-
or,we can choice to listen to our inner self,which tells us the full,real truth.
“People buy self-help books to try to counteract the way these advertisements and perfect models make them feel. But self help books don’t work.”
when I read my first self-help book,I made a decision-this is really going to change me.
so,I would read each chapter,or even a part,and then I would ask myself:
- how does this apply to you?
- how can it help change you?
- what can it teach you about yourself\life.
and it took me over a month to read it,
but it really,fully changed me.
and,if we all use them like that,then they can can truly help you change.
“So they write poems that say the obvious things that everyone thinks but very few actually do anything about.”
I think I already answered both of those questions.
“Success is all well and good. This poem is all well and good. But how much of it is actually true and practical, and how much is just a way to try to convince ourselves?”
In my view,”practical” is just a myth.
is it practical that a nation should listen to one guy who said the world is going to end?
is it practical that one man split the sea?
practical is just a myth,a result of our thoughts.
what we make practical,
what we really believe in,
becomes our reality.
Altie for your comment.
it has helped me to think,
and also to add a new dimension to words from the soul:
instead of just writing inspirational,
I will now try to also implant practical ways to achieve these things in real life.
