Roger decided to change his life by running in the process he lost a significant amount of weight and extended his life, all within a relatively short 10 month period simply by changing his eating and exercise habits. Unfortunately his 12 year old niece Julia was not as fortunate, having been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis within 3 days of her birth. He was able to save her life and it is now his life’s goal to inspire others through running marathons. This video shows you can change your life, regardless of your age or physical condition and that if you believe in yourself, that you CAN obtain goals in life that may seem impossible. If you tell yourself you can, you will.
“LIVE LONG AND PROSPER”
The Vulcan greeting and the finger-separating hand gesture that accompanies it first appeared in the second season of Star Trek: The Original Series, during an episode titled “Amok Time.” Spock himself (actor Leonard Nimoy) has made no secret of the fact that the gesture and phrase were his idea, and that he based them on Orthodox Jewish blessings he remembered from his childhood. In the Jewish blessing, the position of the fingers forms the Hebrew letter “Shin,” which represents the name “Shaddai” (Almighty God). Nimoy put his own spin on the traditional gesture by holding up just one hand (instead of both) and changing
“the Selfish Asshole”
Written By Michael Silvers
Selfish – it is defined in the Dictionary as = devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one’s own interests, benefits, welfare, etc.. Caring for oneself – is that bad? Primarily concerned with one’s own interests and benefits – ok. See this world we live in looks down on what “they” consider a selfish act or a selfish person, yet I disagree, I say BE SELFISH.
If you have ever taken a plane ride then, well if you were listening, you hear the flight attendants instruct us all to please place our own oxygen mask on First before we begin to assist someone else with their mask. Interesting I believe because see I believe it we are not Selfish in our daily actions then we cease to exist and ceasing to exist with us will be our dreams, aspirations, goals and beliefs. If these cease to exist then we are truly non-selfish yet we are nothing but a shell of existence.
Being selfish makes you Thrive – you realize your dreams, you live Your own life and in return you are in a much better place to help others when that time arises. I believe we, as a society, have put a black eye on what being selfish really is – we all want to help one another and that is a great place to be, however, in helping others you fail to help yourself then that does no one any good.
I have had the opportunity to witness both – the person who is completely selfish and the person who is all about others. In my experience I have learned that the happier person is the selfish person – this person wakes up each day pursuing his/her own happiness by taking each step in life in their own direction their own path. Are they assholes- No – do they care about No one but themselves – No – they just understand that until they are were they want to be in life – they cannot help others in the best way possible. So pursue your passion, make life your own and by all means Be Selfish – the other option isn’t really favorable – remember the flight attendants – what good does it do you to help 3 people and yet never live to enjoy what you have done – save yourself first – put your mask on first and then go to work helping others. Better than yesterday not as good as tomorrow – strive daily to be better. Enjoy life and don’t just survive – learn how toTHRIVE.
