Blog, Junrix Monter, Motivation -

Have you ever dreamed of doing something but thought….”I can’t do it, I am not good at that, other people are better at it than me, I don’t have what it takes, I’m going to fail for sure”…. and so on. This is negative self-talk that continuously plays like a tape recorder in our heads and prevents us from achieving our goal. Just like a tape recorder we can push the stop button, erase the negative messages and record different messages that allow us to squash those negatives voices and build new and positive messages that tell us; “we can do it, we are good enough, we have what it takes!” I have been encouraged by many to pursue a specific dream, and was reminded recently that everything we need is within us. It is what we tell ourselves that prevent us from either pursuing a dream or succeeding. Our perception of ourselves and our ability is everything. It can be positive or negative. It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. Stop and think for a moment….how many times in one day do you negative self-talk? Has it prevented you from moving forward? Has it prevented you from realizing a dream? Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Start to turn that negative self talk into positive thoughts that can push you to achieve your goal. It is as easy as changing the wording. Instead of ”I can’t do it”, replace with, “I have everything I need within myself to achieve this goal” or “I have the ability to conquer this” or “I can achieve anything as I am focused, determined and strong.” Imagine what we would achieve in life if we continuously played these positive messages in our minds and actually believed them. The possibilities and opportunities would be limitless. We have everything we need within us! Discover the power within!

Blog, Health, sex -

Does sex count as a workout? If so, how many calories do you stand to lose in bed? And how often should you take on this, um, “exercise?” In a rather conservative country like the Philippines, these are probably some questions we can categorize as things-you-always-wanted-to-know-but-are-afraid-to-ask. How about we save you the trouble and research this stuff for you? Yes, sex lets you burn calories; but the real question is how much? Experts say it really depends on the quality of sex you’re getting. According to health and fitness blogger Sarah Jio, every activity you take before, during, and after sex comes with its own set of calorie loss count. For instance, a full hour of passionate kissing lets you shed 68 calories. So in realistic terms, 10 minutes of kissing is equal to about 11 calories lost. Those who take the effort for a long foreplay are rewarded with more burned fats. Thirty minutes of romantic dance is equivalent to losing 103 calories. Passionate petting and necking burn a massive 238 calories per half hour. A half hour of oral sex delightfully obliterates 100 calories.  And finally, sex lets you burn 144 calories per 30 minutes. Just like any workout, a good post-coital cool down, like giving your partner a massage lets you lose 80 calories per half hour easy. Like running, sex favors (no pun intended) those who do the marathon than sprints. A routinary five minutes of kissing and 15 minutes of sex let you shed a measly 77 calories. A half cup of rice gives you 102 calories, just to give you a picture. In contrast, 30 minutes of romantic dance, followed by 30 minutes of make out session, then 30 minutes of oral sex, another 30 minutes of sex, and finishing everything off with a 30 minutes massage lets you shed 665 calories. An hour of light swimming session only lets you lose about 450 calories an hour. source : Philcare

Arrogance, Arrogant, Blog, Confidence, Confident -

It’s important to understand the differences between arrogance and confidence, because no one likes to deal with arrogant people. Both arrogant and confident people entail a strong belief in their own abilities. Those with confidence can easily overcome fears and uncertainty. Moreover, they have a positive and optimistic vision that makes them strong and admirable. Sometimes over – confidence turns into arrogance and it is a big weakness. Arrogant people usually view themselves as superior and never admit their mistakes. Read on to find out the difference between arrogance and confidence. 1. Condescending remarks Superiority is the main quality of an arrogant person. Arrogant people are single-minded; they either think that they are superior to others or inferior to them. This arrogance may be nothing more than a way to cover the feelings of inferiority they experience when dealing with someone else. It seems they feel better when they tear others down. On the contrary, confident people are high-minded, because they can feel good without having a desire to offend others. They usually see people’s potential and can help them succeed in something. 2. Attitude Arrogant and confident people treat others in a different way. An arrogant person thinks they are better than others, while a confident person knows they are just as good as others. Confident people will rarely be found lecturing or preaching to others or how they are wrong. Furthermore, they usually show respect while listening to somebody. Arrogant people have difficulty listening to others. They often exude negative energy and blame others if things do not work out as expected. 3. Self-perception Confident people always feel comfortable, because they have the right conception of perfection. It seems impossible to bring them down, because they are aware of their weaknesses and know how to deal with them. Meanwhile, arrogant people brush their own shortcomings aside. By virtue of their obstinacy, they cannot admit their mistakes. 4. Relationships with the society Relationships with arrogant people can be a great source of potential pain. Such people live in their own world of self-importance and pride and nothing affects them. They cannot accept their weaknesses or faults with grace, but blame others for them. A truly self-confident person is able to show vulnerability and even admit past mistakes. This quality is highly appreciated by others. By the way, arrogant people can sacrifice friendship or other relationships at the cost of their success. 5. Communication Communication with arrogant people isn’t a pleasant thing. An arrogant person will always try to one-up everything you say. They mind only their own position and make others accept their ideas. That’s why people try to avoid conversations with them because it’s not comfortable to speak with the person who is always right. Confident people don’t try to impose their vision of the situation on others. Their accomplishments do it for them. 6. Eye contact Eye contact is an indispensable part of any conversation. Confident people will make eye contact with you and make you feel as though you are the most important person in the room. Arrogant people will constantly be looking past you for someone else to talk to, because they think this person will benefit them more than you. It is difficult to catch the running eyes of an arrogant person. 7. Various roots Finally, confidence and arrogance have different origins. Arrogance is usually the result of a defense mechanism used by subconscious mind in order to prevent further criticism. Confidence comes from positivity, optimism and mental steadiness. I hope you have noticed the fine line between arrogance and confidence. Try to be confident, because everyone wants to hang around people who feel secure and positive. If you try to become confident, your relationship skills will be your greatest asset. Have you ever dealt with an arrogant person? Do you know some other differences between arrogance and confidence?
