Great advice from one of my favourite typography tutors on Lynda.com. Ever thought about a change in career or life in general? Well, it may seem extremely difficult in most cases especially when faced with fear of the unknown. I like the fact that Ina Saltz highlights that change in your career path (even life itself) can pay off in happiness, balance, and quality of your life. What is that thing, job or position that needs changing from your perspective? Ever thought about that?!!

Having to listen more has change the way I gather or dissect information. Taking a leap of faith in doing a graphic design course completely changed the way I viewed the world around me. My interpretation of colours, things and their meaning definitely changed. Needless to say that my problem solving skills have gone up a notch.

I was listening to a radio show called The Rich Dad Radio Show by Robert and Kim Kiyosaki on Find out How to find your Purpose in Life featuring Steven Pressfield, and I wrote these lines that Steven Pressfield had said about what stands in the way of change (if you put it that way) and finding purpose in life, thus;

It’s kind of the rule of life that anything that is really positive for the evolution of the soul is very freaking hard to do and you feel an enormous resistance to doing it. — Capital ‘R’ resistance from something as simple as going to the gym to facing your true destiny whatever that is, there’s going to be an enormous wall of resistance.

The above relates to making that change that will impact your happiness, balance and quality of life that Ina Saltz had stated.

Thank you Ina Saltz, and thanks to your Typography tutorials on Lynda.com. I have benefited immensely from these including your book Typography Essentials: 100 Principles for Working with Type (Design Essentials) which I have in my mini library.

The Mind, The Body

Mind-controls-Body

I have heard people say things like ‘the mind plays tricks’ and I do wonder if this is true.

There are many cases of the ‘imposter syndrome’ affecting intrinsic abilities, performances, downgrading personal achievements, and feeling like a fraud. Could this be a case of the mind playing tricks?

I read a while back that ‘Love in the mind is eternal’. Is this true? How about the growing number of divorce cases in the modern age, where did love go?

Many superior teams have been well beaten by lesser oppositions in sporting competitions. Is it a case of David defeating Goliath or a case of mental strength and focus not being right or present on the day. Was the mind absent?

“Success is focusing on what we put our minds to consistently” _Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins makes reference to the mind affecting our state and well being, and like his quote will suggest; we improve. Then again I wonder, why will the mind suggest that all the success you’ve been able to achieve isn’t particularly good enough. Or maybe, you actually did not solely achieve it as in the case of the imposter syndrome. What really is the mind up to here?

The mind controls self confidence, expertise, preparation, character, discipline, extra ordinary performances and more.

“Learning never exhaust the mind” I hear Leonardo Da Vinci say. Study about the mind seems perpetual. Will the mind continue to present itself like a minefield or will it indicate where it resides, because a thorough question could be put to the mind if it really does play tricks… Does it?
