We’re all close to that executive bio through risk taking

Almost everyone of us was in a high school that aimed to develop students who are risk-takers. This means guiding students to explore new ideas and innovative strategies, challenging their ways of thinking and encouraging them to be confident in those decisions.
This is a life long skill. It requires students to step out of their comfort zone and become courageous in their choices and actions. But, there is a hint of uncertainty and failure attached to the idea. How can teachers successfully encourage students to take risks and be resilient in the face of challenges?

An example for instance being in a business class we were always told that an entrepreneur is a risk taker. Their meaning of risk taker in his case was He has a fire burning inside his belly, a vision and a dream that he will do anything and everything in his power to bring to life. He will set himself up to succeed, put the pieces in place to make it happen, take his entire team with him, and learn from his failures so that he can keep going and keep getting better.
Probably one or two of your teachers was so much brainwashed in the making of his or her students to be risk takers. They believed risk-taking is crucial to academic success and development. I mean its not wrong neither is it right to some of us who fear uncertainty and failure of course. Once in a while they tried to convince us that being a risk taker as a student you’re exposed to ideas and concepts that you might never have known about and that risk-taking can expose a student to different ideas or different cultures and therefore developing their problem solving abilities.

However, encouraging students to participate in risk-taking activities or behaviour is not always easy, both from the perspective of a student encouraging themselves and their peers, or a teacher encouraging their students. I mean as for my opinion, “For many students there is almost an inherent fear of failure, we ought to have people such as our lecturers or teachers to challenge us as much as possible, and give us the required support and feedback whenever we fail.”
Howsever risk taking is a motivating factor challenging yourself to do hard things with or without your parents support is the best thing we can do for ourselves.It’s admitting that you just might fail, but you try it anyway and you work harder to succeed. Failure is an intimidating idea and unfortunately, the fear of failure prevents many people from challenging themselves to do difficult things. But in order to be truly successful, there must be a possibility of failure. This fear can motivate people to work harder.
If you’re already doubting if you can risk take; A risk is taking a challenging class in an area that is not your strong suit. For example,chemistry and physics were not most of us piece of cake. We oftenly considered ourselves to be a liberal arts students but Instead we decided to take one of them as one of our sciences in senior years of high school.We had to invest a lot more personal effort to be successful in that class.It was gratifying in the end,we had to prove to ourselves that we can do difficult things. The class forced us to be more resourceful than we normally would be.
Taking risks puts you in a situation where you can develop new skills and find new resources you would not have done otherwise. In addition, it teaches your mind to think and analyse material in a different way. It adds more exposure to what and how to learn.
Participating in a group discussion or solving a problem in front of the class I do not praise the result but praise the effort behind the action. I often link this positive praise with the word ‘courageous’ or ‘risk-taker’.
For both lecturers and students, the role of risk-taker and the nurturing of these skills is important to continued success. Risk-taking is something that students can take away with them, far beyond passing exams; it gives students something far more valuable and long lasting.

 

Memes.

Memes. They’re photos of people, usually  posted without permission, with added text about the photo as a caption. It’s easy to make a meme, and even easier to share or be in one. But it comes at a cost. It’s rare to find someone who wants to be turned into a meme;It could mean being internet famous, but for all the wrong reasons.
It’s not always clear why we post, or create memes. Sometimes, we might think that the memes are funny, or we can relate to the person in the photo: after all, everyone has awkward moments
Memes serve many purposes and functions, but at a basic level, they serve as an expression of people’s opinions and emotions. Memes can be formed by appropriating scenes or lines from TV shows,trending tweets,movies and recent events which are then taken out of context, mixed with other content and have new meanings attributed to them in a funny and relatable manner. Meme content can range from complaining about the hardships of being a college student, to expressing embarrassment felt during an encounter in a person’s daily life something that everyone is able to sympathise with.IMG_20180427_122747
Memes are simple, clear and explicit in their messages, and this cultural paradigm is a reflection of the mentality of modern society one that values entertainment, champions materialism, and reinforces the need felt by people to remain relevant.
Their accessibility and ability to reach a huge audience within minutes and within days, become part of the internet lexis means that memes can also be used as propaganda tools that can easily instil, and compact beliefs that quickly become popular among a cyberpunk society.
Memes don’t just cross languages either give negative unfair emotion,their relatableness also forges a feeling of belonging among certain internet users in particular age groups. Whether they’re used to vent their feelings over certain socio-political issues, or to reinforce their obsessions with prominent celebrities, memes are an easy and funny way for teenagers to communication with their friends. Indeed, the very process of propagating memes, sharing them on their social media platforms, and tagging their friends under specific meme pages has enhanced communication across the world, and has contributed to the success of globalization.

Memes are very simple to make there are apps specifically for this purpose. As a result, memes have become an easy way for people to quickly and effectively disseminate false information online, and helping to reinforce fake news.
Trending topics drive news cycles for no other reason than thousands of people engaging in an activity or using a term “Issa a news” It is a turn key cultural identity and all you need to join in is a hashtag.
Memes carry a similar weight but for a shorter period of time. They are an avenue toward releasing strong emotions and engaging online during peak periods of social interaction.It is a tactic to amplify that feeling as far as possible while aligning it with your brand.

However much we’d like to think memes are funny and how much they release strong emotions Think about the following before you post a meme;
Memes have their risks. Memes feature a constant level of self-parody. By the time a single viral image makes the rounds from its originating source to another social channel, blogs and eventually on Tmz or shade room news or pulse live Kenya or rather mpasho new’s, the joke is over. Each image created by the world’s community of content creators is open to constant ridicule and endless appropriation.
Think about the meme and what it’s trying to say. What does the text of the meme say? Is it a pun, or a joke about the person in the photo?Is it clear that the message is supposed to be funny or offensive? Does it encourage a stereotype? If so, don’t post it.How would you feel if that was you in the photo? Would you want people to post it if the photo was of you?

WHY MY MOM WOULDN’T GO TO BED WITH DIRTY DISHES IN THE SINK

 

 

Growing up, I never really understood My Mom Wouldn’t Go to Bed With Dirty Dishes in the Sink. My thinking was, it would take the same amount of time to do them at night as it would the next morning. And she wouldn’t be as tired as she was after a late night.
Do many years later in my campus room it all makes sense.Most of the nights, I’m so tired, the last thing I want to do is wash the dirty dishes in the sink. So I don’t. I watch films, look at my phone and go to bed. Of course when I wake up in the morning to see a messy kitchen, I really wish that I had cleaned up the night before you feel me haha

Yes, one part of it is cleanliness, but another part is the psychology behind the mess and the clutter. It’s something I discovered a while back. When things were always in a rotating mess (as I liked to call it,) I used to say, “I am just not a good housekeeper.” And maybe that was true. But what I didn’t realize was that having a mess around me was affecting my happiness and productivity.
How can something like a messy or cluttered house vs a clean and organized house affect you so much? I started thinking about it when I read an article by insomnia experts on how you can cultivate your evening routine to avoid falling asleep so easily especially when you have your unresolved house chores

 

I was devoting one month to getting her home and life un-cluttered. After reading that, it just struck a chord with me. I realized, whether or not I was a good housekeeper didn’t really matter. What did matter was if the mess affected me or not, affected my over happiness or not. And I realize, that it actually did.

I was trying to be the girl that didn’t care if the sink was full of dishes, the cluttered. It was more important that was having fun and doing things for myself. All of that is true, but being in a constant state of disorganization and then doing a big massive clean on a weekly basis was really taking its toll.
Now don’t get me wrong, my house is not spotless. Everything is not clean, dusted and in its place, I’ll never be able to do that. What I am doing now is taking that extra 15 or 20 minutes after a meal to make sure the counter and table are clear and the dirty dishes in the sink are washed. I am also taking some time each night , to pick up stuff from the floor, put some laundry in the washer and tidy up the room.

It honestly makes me happier to see things tidy before I go to bed. And it’s nice to wake up to a clean place in the morning. I feel better and more productive when I sit at my laptop to work and there isn’t a ton of stuff everywhere. It helps me focus on the task at hand.
It also makes me understand now why My Mom Wouldn’t Go to Bed With Dirty Dishes in the Sink. After all, I am my mother’s daughter.
Was there something that your mom used to do that you didn’t understand as a child but makes total sense as an adult?

Let’s break sexism rules

Let’s break those stereotypes guys! I’m a mass communication student and entirely the whole school believes that mass communication students have pride that goes off over heels well w’all know what that means and how absolutely stereotypical it is.Guys who told you men who loved pink are gay’s or whichever way they’re doctors outta here who got good handwriting and patients would probably be walking with their prescriptions in their shorts pockets. We’ve always met these science students who got killer fashions I mean yeah fashionistas that kill people’s vibes all day long.
And there is the issue can boys be raised to be happy men and break sexism rules, respect women and value women.
Here is a checklist men need to recognize women’s value in society, recognize sexism and call it out. They’re several items designed to help boys grow up into happier, healthier men. These include letting boys cry and helping them to feel comfortable with who they are and with expressing their emotions.

The implication is that men who are more sensitive and in touch with their feelings will be better partners, bosses and friends to women, which is undoubtedly true. But while hundreds of programs exist around the world to break women and girls out of rigid gender stereotypes, we don’t put the same energy into creating boys’ empowerment programs that might allow them to feel more comfortable with who they are and live happier lives. As Miller says, “if we want to create an equitable society, one in which everyone can thrive, we need to also give boys more choices.”

There is plenty of research lately that shows that men are suffering. In a study done by MTV, six in 10 men aged 14 to 24 said they felt confined by what society expected them to be like, and 61 percent agreed with the statement “I feel pressure to act like a man today.” A study out of the University of Washington looked at how men are under great pressure to live up to the masculine ideal and found that “men who believe they fall short of those ideals might be prompted to reassert their masculinity in small but significant ways.”
Men are also graduating from college and graduate school in lower numbers than women, and they are three times more likely than women to take their own lives.

But so many boys grow up suppressing their feelings and living a masculine ideal that may have little resemblance to what is going on inside of them. We need to be doing more to awareness of people raising their sons to be emotionally open and empathetic because we value them and their happiness the same way we do to girls.

In the world of women’s empowerment, we laugh about the idea of a calendar day celebrating men (after all, isn’t every day men’s day?) or a men’s empowerment program (aren’t they empowered enough?). But the truth is, boys face many of the same types of societal pressure that girls do and it is time for us to invest in programs targeting their emotional well-being.

Emotional intelligence is widely regarded as the key to both leading a happy life and for success in business. Studies show that people who are more in touch with their emotions, who know how important it is to form close bonds with people and to allow themselves to be known, are both emotionally and physically healthier. When boys don’t learn these skills at home, they need to provide them with role models and empowerment programs that help them to become the men they are to be.

If we are ever going to have a truly equal society, where men and women are comfortable leading alongside each other and spending equal time nurturing and supporting their families, we need to value teaching boys how to be happy, healthy men. Girls are increasingly being taught how to break out of their traditions ; let’s help boys break out too.
