The Secret of the RAS system

Featured

It is not my purpose to describe the RAS system in detail. I will only give one fact about this system, which is mentioned by the authors of "The Answer: "Your RAS has a built-in GPS system. With a GPS, you don't need to know where all the roads are located in a given city. You only need to decide where you want to go. You input the data and the GPS directs you.

Each of us has a problem, but we can treat it as a challenge.

Featured

I do not believe that there is a single man (or woman) without a problem. Every one of us has some kind of problem, although temporarily it happens that we have no problem at all. Problems are simply part of life, you have to accept that. However, the way we treat problems makes a huge difference to how we feel. We can treat a problem as a challenge to be faced.

Find your mission – it’s possible.

In Carmine Gallo's book 'The Storyteller's Secret' (in the Polish edition on page 232) I read this text (translation from Polish): "We have an incredible opportunity to change the world. I will change the face of ALS. I will make philanthropists hear about it. (…) The mission became personal and Pete, (…) was determined to carry it out. He already knew the answer to the question, (…): "What is my mission in life?" His mission became to publicise the disease

“The Storyteller’s Secret” – some quotes and ideas from Carmine Gallo’s book

Featured

The book mentioned in the title of this post is about 300 pages long (the Polish edition) and is full of evidence that storytelling is a great tool with several applications in the current world (e.g. to educate the audience). Carmine Gallo, a storytelling expert, "reveals the secrets of creating great narratives that inspire, motivate, educate, build brands, create social movements and change lives".

“Holiness – the eternal longing of the soul”

Featured

John Paul II tried to show that the pursuit of personal holiness is revealed in the humanity of every human being, and thus can be realized by anyone at any time: during prayer, work, study, creative activity, meeting other people, practicing sports, discovering the beauty of nature, while exercising priestly, episcopal or papal ministry.

“You possess the power to change any area of your life for the better.” (A. Robbins)

Featured

"(…) you have the power to change any area of your life for the better. So where is this power? And how can you use it? We all know that to achieve new results, you need to take new action. But we need to understand that at the heart of every action is a decision. The power of decision is therefore the power of change." (A. Robbins)

Failure is part of life, let’s not be afraid of it, things don’t always work out the first time.

Featured

Things don't work out right away, sometimes we have to be persistent, sometimes it takes effort and hard work to make plans and dreams come true. This applies, for example, to learning a foreign language: anyone who has prepared for the C2 exam knows how much effort and time is required.

“(…) to help with the tsunami disaster on the Thai islands?”(…) “(…) pomagać w usuwaniu skutków tsunami na tajskich wyspach?”

Discovering your mission can be one of the most important events in your life, whether you do the mission during your work or leisure time, or in micro-retirement (which the aforementioned author, T. Ferriss, writes about). What is a mission? For me, it is something that gives a deeper meaning to life, it is a kind of vocation, something that makes us happy because we give the best of ourselves to other people.

Teenagers and the quality of Polish educational system.

Featured

"When a teenager enrolls in a drama club class, for example, he steps outside his comfort zone, takes risks, limits his control, and begins the process, often without knowing the outcome. Additionally, he starts to build social relationships with other kids, learns attentiveness, co-responsibility, closeness. That when he is part of a team, what happens between people becomes most important, not his individual goals.

“Education should be represented by experts.” (Zdzisław Hofman)

"Vzdělávání by měli zastupovat odborníci." (This post is written in English and Czech) In "Psychologia nastolatka" ("Adolescent Psychology") (no. 4/2022, page 77, the magazine is in Polish) we can read the following passage: "(…) education should be represented by experts who understand the psychological mechanisms and neurobiological processes of young people. Of course this knowledge … Continue reading “Education should be represented by experts.” (Zdzisław Hofman)

“One of the guidelines for speakers at TED conferences is to avoid ‘following the beaten track’.” (Carmine Gallo)”

The quote in the title of this post comes from page 101 of Carmine Gallo's book "The Storyteller's Secret" (I have my copy in Polish). One can think how to use the knowledge about storytelling (contained e.g. in the above-mentioned book) in the activities of authors, bloggers, but also all who want to educate the audience in some way.

“Using your strengths is far more lucrative…” ( a post inspired by the book by Timothy Ferriss)

Featured

"Using our strengths is far more lucrative and enjoyable than trying to fix all the cracks in our armour. We have a choice between multiplying our results by using our strengths and making tiny progress against our weaknesses. These advances will at best allow us to achieve mediocrity in a given field."

“Focus on being productive, not busy.” (T. Ferriss)

"Skup się na byciu produktywnym, a nie na byciu zajętym." (T. Ferriss) Focusing on the goal is important. Do you have something important to do? Then just do it! Don't procrastinate. Don't put off what's really important until later. And you have to be focused on being productive, learn to be productive.

Why don’t people believe in God? (my personal opinion)

Featured

Personally, I think that one of the most obvious evidences for the existence of God is the existence of man and nature. In my opinion, SOMEONE had to give a beginning to the universe, nature and man. Nothing happens by itself. As the Holy Scriptures says "From the beauty of the creatures one recognizes the Creator"

La fede in Dio e il suo amore per noi uomini – una riflessione personale di un cinquantenne.

(This post is in English and Italian)

I have believed in God since I can remember, the faith was given to me by my parents, they “gave” me to my church, they made sure I was baptized as a child (I am Catholic, just like my parents). I remember attending Holy Masses (with my parents), I remember my parents’ daily prayers (on their knees). My parents taught me the faith and for that I am grateful to God and them.

Credo in Dio da quando ho memoria, la fede mi è stata trasmessa dai miei genitori, che mi hanno “regalato” alla mia chiesa e si sono assicurati che fossi battezzato da bambino (sono cattolico, proprio come i miei genitori). Ricordo di aver partecipato alla Santa Messa (con i miei genitori),
