...be scary at first and that it probably won’t be perfect. Don’t be too hard on yourself. Simply resolve to learn from each attempt how to do it better next time. Becoming assertive may be one of the hardest things you have ever done (it was for me), but learning it and mastering it is one of the most rewarding. Even though I’m still working on mastering it, I now find it fun to come up with an effective assertive statement. 6. Celebrate each success. Give yourself a pat on the back for each time you are assertive. Each attempt will boost your confidence. One of best things about assertiveness is that when you master it, you are often able to be assertive in such a way that you leave people speechless with their jaws dropped. There is nothing left for them to say. It feels so good to do this! Sublimation Sublimation is simply the channeling of unacceptable impulses, thoughts and emotions into more acceptable ones. For instance, when a person has sexual impulses they would like not to act upon, they may instead focus on rigorous exercise. Refocusing such unacceptable or harmful impulses into productive use helps a person channel energy that otherwise would be lost or used in a manner that might cause the person more anxiety. Sublimation can also be done with humor or fantasy. Humor, when used as a defense mechanism, is the channeling of unacceptable impulses or thoughts into a light-hearted story or joke. Humor reduces the intensity of a situation, and places a cushion......

...------------------------------------------------- Philosophy Western philosophy Some would consider the study of "nothing" to be foolish, a typical response of this type is voiced by Giacomo Casanova (1725–1798) in conversation with his landlord, one Dr. Gozzi, who also happens to be a priest, “ | As everything, for him, was an article of faith, nothing, to his mind, was difficult to understand: the Great Flood had covered the entire world; before, men had the misfortune of living a thousand years; God conversed with them; Noah had taken one hundred years to build the ark; while the earth, suspended in air, stood firmly at the center of the universe that God had created out of nothingness. When I said to him, and proved to him, that the existence of nothingness was absurd, he cut me short, calling me silly.[3] | ” | However, "nothingness" has been treated as a serious subject worthy of research for a very long time. In philosophy, to avoid linguistic traps over the meaning of "nothing", a phrase such as not-being is oftenemployed to unambiguously make clear what is being discussed. Parmenides One of the earliest western philosophers to consider nothing as a concept was Parmenides (5th century BC) who was a Greek philosopher of the monist school. He argued that "nothing" cannot exist by the following line of reasoning: To speak of a thing, one has to speak of a thing that exists. Since we can speak of a thing in the past, it must still exist (in some sense) now and......

...so that the wheel somewhat resembles the inner half of a grapefruit. The clown and unicycle together stand about a foot high. As a cherished gift from my good friend Tran, this colorful figure greets me with a smile every time I enter my room. Here is the final version of the descriptive paragraph that appears in the exercise Practice in Supporting a Topic Sentence with Specific Details5. Compare this version with the earlier one to see which descriptions have been retained, what information has been omitted, and how sentences have been reworded and rearranged. 2) The Blond Guitar by Jeremy Burden My most valuable possession is an old, slightly warped blond guitar--the first instrument I taught myself how to play. It's nothing fancy, just a Madeira folk guitar, all scuffed and scratched and finger-printed. At the top is a bramble of copper-wound strings, each one hooked through the eye of a silver tuning key. The strings are stretched down a long, slim neck, its frets tarnished, the wood worn by years of fingers pressing chords and picking notes. The body of the Madeira is shaped like an enormous yellow pear, one that was slightly damaged in shipping. The blond wood has been chipped and gouged to gray, particularly where the pick guard fell off years ago. No, it's not a beautiful instrument, but it still lets me make music, and for that I will always treasure it. In the next descriptive paragraph, the student writer focuses less on the physical......

...Nothing – A mere seven characters long word but with such significance in our lives, which cannot be ignored. It has such diverse number of uses in our lives which we cannot even imagine. Everything, from us to the whole universe, started with this one word. It is the beginning of everything. As we can say, the step zero of all the processes is always ‘Nothing’. If something is already there then it cannot re-originate. Nothing existed before the Big Bang happened, which led to the creation of the universe. Now as the universe is already there, it cannot be re-created without it first being destroyed which will again lead it back to the step zero. It is also the most widely used word by us nowadays. ‘Nothing’ is what we do most of the times. It just may be the profession of a huge number of people in the world. Some love doing it and some are forced to it because of certain circumstances. To speak of it, at some point of time or the other all of us want to just sit back, relax and do nothing. This is what ultimately everyone’s goal is, this is what we work hard for all our lives. We all study hard to make a good career so that we can earn a lot of money and then just sit back and enjoy without having to do anything, which means being happily retired. It can also be used to hide our feelings and thoughts from the others. When we don’t want to discuss or talk about anything, we simply sum it all up in just this one word and the topic ends. Another form in which this word...

...October 2013 If you are chasing your tail, you are busy doing a lot of different things but not achieving very much. Examples: I've been chasing my tail all day, but I haven't got anything done! What a waste of a day! Organising a meeting for next week has been impossible. I've been chasing my tail trying to sort out a date, venue and agenda... I'll try again tomorrow! * Putting out fires 15 October 2013 The phrase putting out fires means dealing with many small problems, usually at work. Though the problems might be small, they need to be solved quickly before they become bigger ones. Examples: Sorry I didn't have time to meet you for lunch today. I was busy at work all day putting out fires. Sometimes it feels like you get nothing done in the office – you need to spend the whole day putting out fires. * Ride a wave 10 October 2013 If you ride (on) a wave of something, you benefit from a period of success and/or popularity. Examples: The candidate is riding on a wave of popularity and is expected to win the election. British athletes rode a wave of patriotism during the London Olympics, winning more medals than the country ever had before. * Blow your own trumpet 8 October 2013 If you blow your own trumpet, you are boasting about your achievements and abilities. Examples: He's always blowing his own trumpet - it's so boring! Why can't he be more modest about his abilities? You've got to blow your own trumpet a bit more, otherwise you......

...There's nothing to say about nothing. Still, some people make a fuss about it. Among spiritual seekers, there's a lot of talk about "becoming nothing". On this site about nothing, we're not going to talk about "nothing", because "nothing" can't be talked about. When people talk about "nothing", they're not really talking about nothing, they're talking about something. It's not a real nothing, it's a "nothing" they can hold in their mind. It's a nothing that feels like something, perhaps a black hole, perhaps a lonely place. They have words for it, perhaps "void", "emptiness", "nothingness". Nothingness is not nothing. It comes and it goes, so it's got to be something. You can look at it. You can hold it. You can throw it out. And when you throw it out, what's left?... ...And that's all we're going to say about that. This little introduction has nothing to do with the articles on the site. It's just here to confuse the philosophers and perhaps intrigue a few people with a genuine interest in nothing. This is a site about nothing. We hope you enjoy it. Perhaps you'd like to start with a 25-second playful video clip about a show about nothing? love numbers. And I have always loved computing. That's the whole reason computers have had such a strong pull on me since 1981, when my mom's boyfriend decided I should have my first computer: a Sinclair ZX 81. I would like this section to be about numbers, computing and computers. At the moment, it's all about computers...

...Nothing In old American Western movies, black is the color worn by the antagonist while white represents the purity and goodness of the hero. While the scenarios and dialogue of Western films may be archaic, the symbolism of light and dark colors is still prevalent today; the connotations of a dim corner or a black cat contrast sharply against white images of angels or wedding brides. Evolutionally, humans view the sun, the most basic source of food and thus survival, as a crucial source of light, warmth, and protection. With darkness comes coldness and a fear of the unknown. In the dark, man is reminded of how alone and insignificant a life is in the vast universe. Ernest Hemingway often employs darkness in his works to convey the meaningless of existence that looms over man. Not totally void of optimism, his stories also present rays of hope that reach the reader often through literal descriptions of light. Such is the case in Hemingway’s short story, “A Clean, Well-lighted Place,” which focuses on two waiters at a café. The young waiter impatiently hurries along the last customer, an old man drinking alone, while the older waiter sympathizes with the perceptibly forlorn man. What appears to be a tale of despair and loneliness actually offers hope and strength through a quiet hero. Hemingway’s “A Clean, Well-lighted Place” focuses on the nothingness of existence and invokes in the reader a grim realization of the inevitable loneliness of life. However, hope......

...simply by my dad accepting a job in Pakistan. Resulting me being more close to my relatives, removing the prejudices about Pakistan and, gradually loving my motherland. In May 2004 my dad got a job from Karachi. Both my parents missed Pakistan very much, having all their brothers and sisters there and not having met them for ten years really made them homesick. My dad instantly accepted the job without even considering how I felt about it. Egypt was my home for ten years, the place where I had all my friends and spots where we hung out. The idea of moving to another country 5000 km away scared me. Starting from scratch, making new friends, learning a whole new language and the things I heard about of Karachi really frightened me. There was nothing that I could say or do that would change my parents mind. After a month we moved to Pakistan. It was the first time I was in Pakistan and was entirely different from what I had expected it to be. The first thing my parents wanted to do was visit all of their brothers and sisters. Most of my cousins are of my age, at first I wasn’t excited to meet my cousins but after having met them I realized that nice they were, we had many common interests. Over the short span of few months I and my cousins became very close. I never realized how essential cousins were until I met them Before moving to Pakistan I was curious to know more about it. I opened my computer and searched for Pakistan specially Karachi, the things I found on the net......

Take a look at this one – LINK. Recon ron Pull-up Programme When you can do at least 6 proper pull up, start with this programme. The review of it is not bad. The website doesn't list the directions or specifically what you need to do however. At the top you'll notice it says WEEK 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. During each week you will perform 5 sets of the number of reps listed in the column, for example in week 1 you will do 6 reps on the first set, 5 on the second set, etc. You do this Monday through Saturday and on Sunday you take the day off and do nothing to allow yourself to recover from the previous week. Then you'll move on to week 2, however in MY (online author) personal experience I found that it moved a little too quickly, so I spent 2 weeks on week 1 before moving to week 2 where I spent another 2 weeks before moving on to week 3. If you're stuck on a certain week and you've been stuck there for more than 2 weeks without being able to improve to what's required on the next step, then take 5 days off and don't do a single pull-up. Pre-recon ron pull-up programme You can do this concurrently with the strength training workouts. Ask me if you have any questions....
