Fight For It!

Posted by kelvinbroadus on April 12, 2012 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (0)

In any given fight, you have three potential outcomes that can occur. The first and most preferred outcome is that you win the fight by defeating your enemy. When you win, whatever it was that you were fighting to keep or fighting to gain remains or becomes yours. The second outcome is that you lose the battle. If you lose the battle and are still alive, then you have the ability to get back up and start over with something else (more training, wisdom, etc.) and eventually when...

Stop Beating That Horse

Posted by kelvinbroadus on January 24, 2012 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (0)

There is an old experession that says, "stop beating a dead horse." It refers to continuing to complain about, or get some life from, a situation that is no longer in existence or trying to convince someone who has no chance (especially due to outright refusal) of being convinced. An example would be trying to convince a true person of faith that God doesn't exist or trying to convince an atheist that He does exist. Either is fully convinced alread...

Are You A Producer?

Posted by kelvinbroadus on September 15, 2011 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Movies have the amazing power to captivate, motivate, encourage, teach, and even change the perspective of the people that are viewing them. They also have, however, the ability to make the producers a LOT of money! You may have seen the recent article about Tyler Perry being the highest paid person in entertainment, beating out even some of the longstanding producers such as Steven Spielberg and others. People look at these "giants" in the industry with awe and envy, but yet f...

Don't Forget Where You Come From

Posted by kelvinbroadus on April 21, 2011 at 6:45 PM Comments comments (0)

There is an old saying that addresses the idea of remaining true to your "roots," or your heritage. It is often used to address when people have grown up in a particular area or city, grow up and move away, and then return acting as though there is nothing familiar anymore or as if they are now "too good" for the people they grew up with. In truth, it is important to remember your heritage, or background, even if you have exceeded by learning better ways in your current stage o...

Unlocking Perception

Posted by kelvinbroadus on August 9, 2010 at 5:14 PM Comments comments (1)

A statement that is generally true is that "perception is reality." More specifically, a person's perspective is THAT PERSON'S reality. Classic wisdom teaches us good communication is often based more on how we make others feel more than the intent behind it. This is why many times a person can do something for another with the best intentions in the world, but then still find the person he/she was doing it for to be annoyed, angered, disappointed, etc., by the act that was mea...

Caffeine, Sugar, and YOUR Health

Posted by kelvinbroadus on August 6, 2010 at 4:34 PM Comments comments (0)

Practically every day, people go to work, starting their days with cups of coffee, sodas, and/or energy drinks.  They often find themselves feeling like without these things, they cannot make it through the day.  They can often even have other options to quench their thirsts (water, juice, etc.) and yet they still spend the extra money to go purchase that cup of coffee or energy drink/soda.  This can actually be a dangerous thing.

Expertise Cultures

Posted by kelvinbroadus on March 25, 2010 at 4:06 PM Comments comments (0)

In biological labs, scientists often take some sort of organism and place it in these little glass dishes, Petri dishes, to allow it to grow to sufficient levels. The dishes contain "food" to assist in this growth process, allowing it to increase at a level far quicker, and to a state that is far stronger, than in nature.

 

In our lives, workplaces, and beyond, we often need to ...

Your Power Source

Posted by kelvinbroadus on October 29, 2009 at 2:57 PM Comments comments (0)

Any electrical device can only operate if it is plugged into a power outlet. One thing often less considered though is that the performance of that device can also be hindered, though it may still be on, if the power source isn’t sufficient or if the plug is not securely plugged in. Once it is plugged in though, the polarization would then affect whether the result is positive or negative. Though I’m not going to go into details about the differ...

Hot Potato Customer Service

Posted by kelvinbroadus on August 31, 2009 at 6:18 PM Comments comments (0)

As kids, most of us at one time played the game of "Hot Potato." This is a game where a group of people stand together, often in a circle, and throw a ball back and forth to each other as though it is a hot potato that will burn their hands if held too long. In fact, I believe that it limits the players to holding the ball no more than about two seconds, and if they either hold it too long or drop it, they are out.

Don't Choke

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a seizure (medical) as:

"a : a sudden attack (as of disease); especially : the physical manifestations (as convulsions, sensory disturbances, or loss of consciousness) resulting from abnormal electrical discharges in the brain (as in epilepsy) b : an abnormal electrical discharge in the brain."

Most people typically ONLY recognize a seizure as the convulsion i...
