How To Be Happy Being Yourself. Be Honest and Fair With Your Wants and Needs To Help Others More Successfully

"Be Yourself, Everybody Else Is Taken"

Be who you are. So many of us now a days try to be something were not. It causes stress and anxieties that otherwise would not be there. Constantly trying to restrict ourselves to fit in to these stereo-typical types in order to portray a specific image to the masses, this is a lot of work and full-time job. Between social media, school, our social circles, are family and whatever else; if we want them to see us as something were not we must constantly keep up this false image like a lie that just keeps growing and becomes harder and harder to manage. It continues to grow and grow until it gets out of hand and finally the truth comes out (the truth always comes out..). This can make being happy nearly impossible, since the best way to be happy and worry free is to be who you really are, I mean who you REALLY REALLY are, there's no use lying to yourself either because in the long-run even though so many of us do it, it always turns out negatively.
    In the case of being yourself, eventually if you ever want to get close to anyone whether it's your family, a friends, or you fall in love then no matter, they are going to have to see who you really are. Who you really are is who you are when no one is around.
       If you are worried about how a friend or acquaintance will react or feel about you if they found out about a little quirk you have (maybe your a sci-guy) then you may need to reassess that relationship. You may not WANT to be close with those people you consider high and mighty but rude and ignorant. If your friends only like you for someone you are pretending to be then they are not really friends are they? Not true friends at least. Plus you'll attract more better friends if you just be yourself, no games, no charades. 

ALWAYS love yourself and embrace who you are. We are all goofy and a little strange in our own ways, we all believe that there should be a TV show made about us at some point. THAT'S what makes us all individuals, special, different, that's what makes us love to laugh and enjoy life. If you hold back being who you are in fear of others thinking your weird or strange, then the only person you are hurting is yourself. 
Not to mention you are taking away that persons chance to meet the real you, the unique one-of-a-kind person that you really are, robbing them of any ability to get close to the real you even if they wanted to. 

          Think about your good friends, the ones you cant stop laughing with when your around them, the ones that make you love life and appreciate the little things. Chances are they could probably be considered strange or a little weird in their own right. These nine times out of ten are the people at least when comfortable are truly being themselves. They inspire confidence and instill happiness in everyone they come across. They seem to have a super human power to make others happy and there's no way you could affect others that dramatically and positively. THAT'S WRONG. YES YOU CAN. 
Yes these people are special, but so is everyone in one way or another and we all have the capability and ability to be as happy as we want and radiate happiness and affect others in the same way these extremely passionate and happy close friends  have affected us. 
       They live worry free because they have no covers to keep up they're surrounded by people who love them for who they are no matter what. People gravitate towards them. When you are confident in yourself and not try to be anything you are not then you will always find happiness which is what ALL people want. Being true to yourself; fulfilling your wants and needs allows you to radiate positivity and genuine happiness to your close friends, loved-ones, and strangers. 

You can be as happy as you let yourself be.

I can not tell you how to be yourself or what decisions will be best for you. These are the questions that we must all strive to answer for ourselves through experience and trial & error. As long as you follow and stand by your morals and ethics, always being absolutely true to yourself; you're wants and needs, your need to help others, as well as feed your desire to love and be loved. Never trying to be something you are not, BUT ALWAYS TRYING TO BE THE BEST YOU, YOU CAN BE.  Constantly striving for improvement and growth with a conscious effort to smile and spread joy and positivity to everyone you meet no matter what. 
Then eventually you will be that person previously mentioned that you love to be around, not only just to your friends and loved ones but ever random person you come in contact with as well.

My own personal thought. " if you aren't being weird, you aren't being yourself."

My favorite thoughts:
"Be a character, NOT a type."

"Be yourself, everyone else is taken"

Conscious Thought. The Entrepreneurial Mind. Helping Others Succeed

Entrepreneurs are a key example of people with conscious thought. They push the boundaries are problem solvers and don't see life as something that has to be mundane because giving our abilities of thought and creativity we can create an environment or job that we feel comfortable living in, working for,  and are excited by. 

My mindset is very much entrepreneurial which gave rise to this posting. Live Now is a venture to bring awareness to peers to help those around you be positive,  follow your passions and help others pursue their passion and support them when they take the risk of putting themselves out their socially and financially


    The ability to think and have a thought is what separates our species from all others on this planet. Most of our thoughts are just automatic reactions to certain stimuli. Circumstances occur, a chain of thought gets triggered; that chain of thought gives rise to more thoughts. The nature of our thoughts depends on our past conditioning, what we have learned to think as a result of our past experiences.
     As society grew we began to encounter more and more that gave rise to thoughts. In order to survive we began to adapt, our brains took certain combinations of stimuli in difference circumstances. The thought that occurred was stored subconsciously for our brains to access and react to.
     These thoughts that are occuring subconsciously are mostly basic human instincts; if you put your hand on a burning stove, you immediately pull your hand away as a reaction. It was not necessary for your brain to consciously think about the stove being scalding before pulling your hand away. This is just one example but these thoughts that started out at first as natural fight or flight responses or necessary for survival.

     In today's society this subconscious thinking is out of control. It is not limited to human survival any more. It makes sense that since the establishment of laws and medicine, human survival as become less of a concern. Our generation has become increasingly fast paced and ritualistic. We are all on schedules. Whether your in school, in sports, at work, or even on a vacation we all have schedules whether written or not we all have our own order of doing things. Even in the grand scheme of things we are on a schedule, we have an order of doing things that is commonly agreed upon by ourselves and society. We go to school, get a job, get married, have kids, retire, and then have grandchildren.

     Our lives have become predictable in way, at least to ourselves. Just as our body as muscle memory, if you do something over and over and over again you begin to not have to think about it as much consciously and it sort of just happens. This can be a positive thing such as in sports or it can be a negative thing such as a bad habit.

     Since the nature of our thoughts depends on our past conditioning and the majority of people are conditioned to follow the same schedule or routine repeatedly then that means that the majority of our lives can unfortunately all fall victim to our subconscious thoughts.

     This is what our generation is lacking today. Conscious Thought. We have turned in to robots going through our daily lives and not being able to recollect a single thing about that day if questioned. The majority are running on auto pilot. Have you ever been driving on the highway and zoned out to where you drive right by your exit plus a few others? Maybe you were on a long drive and couldn't remember a single thing about the drive? Either way this is the best analogy I can think of to correlate to my point. It may be happening to you right now.

     Think about everything that your missing by living like this. Life is to short to be on autopilot, not to mention that these subconscious responses are from past experiences and may not be able to fully handle the new situation at hand. We need to take back control of our lives and our thoughts. We need to become aware of our surroundings and appreciate the things around us. The work that has gone in to everything. The wonders of the earth. The wonders of man. The art in all of our surroundings. How awful would it be to be on your death bed and when you try to remember your past find that there is hardly anything there.

     Conscious thought creates dreams. In encourages you to grow and try new things. It inspires you to find your passions in life. All we must do is become aware of the existing thought and bring it to consciousness. It takes time and practice, become an observer. Notice things, think about things then think about your thought on that thing. Where did the thought come from? What did that thought lead you to? Was it a positive or negative thought? What kind of emotion did that thought bring?

     Once you question or think about your thoughts you gain an awareness. An awareness in you that is not only thinking, but is aware of the thought. This Awareness is what eventually gives one the possibility of directing and channeling thoughts, of dissolving a thought or thought pattern that one experiences as negative. You can begin to experiment with how your Awareness can shift, change, focus, or dissolve a thought pattern. People try to control their thoughts with their will. You will find it quite a different experience to allow your Awareness to transform your thoughts. The foundation is simply to become aware that there is an Awareness in you that is aware of your thoughts.

     Live Now. Think Now. Become Aware.

Personal Life Lesson & Story on Trusting Your Intuition

My Personal Life Story on Intuition: Trust Your Gut, It Knows Something You Don't
-Darrien Eouse

     Let me begin with a personal story of mine that proved to me that my Intuition was not to be ignored. When I was 16 years old I was a wild child a long with all of my friends. We had all just gotten cars and we also just began drinking about a year before. Not a good combination to begin with.
     One Saturday afternoon I was over at my friend's house just hanging out and trying to figure out what I was going to do that night. I was never home on the weekends and barely on the weekdays too. I was always at a party and never wanted to miss a night out with my friends ever. I felt as if a night at home was a waste of time.
     Around 8:00 p.m. I received a phone call from one of my best friend's Ricky. Rick asked if I wanted to meet up, chill, and drink with him that night and of course I immediately jumped in my car left my friend's house and was on my way over to Rick's to ride with him.
     The sun had barely gone down and it was still a little bit light out. To get from where I was to Rick's I had  to drive down a road called Apopka Vineland. My street is off of Apopka Vineland and as I was driving to Rick's and coming up to the turn for my house, for some reason I felt like I should go home. I do not know why I just did and just in time to make the turn. I did and went home before the sun was completely down on a Saturday night. I was never home this early, ever. My mom was shocked too at my presence. Another weird part about all of this was it never crossed my mind to go out again even once I was back at home, which at that age I did almost every time I went home.
     That morning I woke up to about 30 missed calls before 8:00 am. When I picked up my phone, I did not believe what I was hearing. Ricky had been in a car accident. Rick passed away that night. One of my best friends had passed away after leaving a party at a hotel, his car wrapped around a tree and he was killed instantly... This was one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with in my life. I think about the friend I lost everyday. It's one thing to have such a horrible experience and it's quite another to have that experience and not learn anything from it. Ricky's passing was terrible and I wish it never happened, but it still has had a large impact on making me who I am today. These experiences are filled with lessons to learn from and the top three I learned in this case had to do with being grateful, family, and intuition.
     That night my Intuition saved my life. I was never home and never went home that early especially on the weekends, but my gut signaled me and my body reacted without wanting to know why. Making that turn to go home that night was not normal and looking back the amount I contribute to my intuition's role in the decision is more and more. My gut felt something that my conscious brain could not interpret and my thought that night of going home was it's signal. Although my Intuition was the one who sent the signal it can not get all the credit for the warning. A warning is nothing if we do not act, the combination of immediate obedience to the thought and my Intuition saved my life that night. From that moment on I have made sure to listen to my intuition and act on it.

     Our intuition stems from our mind recognizing certain patterns of senses, scents, touch, and the others that either occur alone or in conjunction with others. Our mind is able to recognize and pick-up on these factors that may not be considered consciously because of inaccessibility. 
     Our mind will remember everything it encounters through our entire life. Why then is our memory foggy? Because in order to survive in the fast paced society we live in today, our brains have adapted to blocking out things that it considers to be ordinary or constant. Although, our memories can be heightened by certain triggers such as one of the senses we contribute to a certain outcome. 
     An example of how intuition can correlate to real scenarios is as follows; Have you ever seen someone about to step in the street to cross the road, and you know the person did not see the car coming around the corner that you did. One way of warning a person, "Excuse me sir/ma'am I am sorry for interrupting your jog but you see I believe there is a car coming around the corner that you were not able to see." Very polite. Too bad the person was probably flattened.
    What we would say is, "CAR!!!" Then the person would immediately turn around and leap for the pavement. That would save his life, because the person did not hesitate or bother to check if the scream was for him or not. He just listened and got the hell out of the street (his intuition probably told him too). 
     Intuition works the same way, instead of knowing why you know the answer, you just do. This is because our brain does not have enough time to explain it slow enough for your conscious mind to understand. We too should react immediately too our gut-feelings because if they weren't meant to be acted on immediately, then our brain would have taken the time to explain it's reasoning. 
     When you feel that felling in your stomach or something just doesn't feel right, take a step back examine the situation and you will find that your gut is never wrong.
