This game is crazy hard but so crazy possible!

This game is crazy hard but so crazy possible!

Games are usually fun but very challenging. If you see your work as fun and challenging then it’s no longer work that you dread and do mainly for some type of gain beyond providing value for others and personal growth such as money, societal pressure, or familial pressure. Instead, like a game, you’re enjoying your work and willing to face the obstacles and failures that come with the challenges. This is a great place to be where you get into a flow, so much so, that time flies by because you’re loving the process. The more difficult the game, the greater your rewards will be for your personal growth. The money you receive from it is a bonus. 

When you love the work you do, you will push yourself to your limits despite the ridiculous odds stacked against you. Quantify and write down your progress in your calendar and journal, and reward yourself for your small wins. The more you work on your game, the better your chances of beating the crazy odds. Best of wishes on your game my friends!

In a world that can be cruel at any moment, you can make it crueler or better.


In a world that can be cruel at any moment, you can make it crueler or better.
In a world that can be cruel at any moment, you can make it crueler or better.

You can choose to create life.
That’s easy.
But what’s your intent?
Not so easy.
Unlike suffering, which can be be intentional or unintentional,
kindness can only be felt when it’s intentional.
Compassion and patience take effort.
Whereas, anger and impatience are effortless.
In a world that can be cruel at any moment,
you can make it crueler or better.

– Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 9/14/2020 –

As I dive deeper into my studies of psychology, philosophy, sociology, mental health, neuroscience, history, and other fields about humans, I came up with this poem. Some humans can be so destructive, yet others can be so loving. On the bright side, throughout history, many people have done amazing things, even finding purpose and happiness under the cruelest and most heartbreaking situations. Be the light for those who are suffering in darkness.

Cognitive Distortions 10 – Don’t assume responsibility for something you’re not responsible for.


Don't assume responsibility for something you're not responsible for.

Don’t assume responsibility for something you’re not responsible for.

Cognitive Distortions 10 – Don’t assume responsibility for something you’re not responsible for.

For example, you have a friend who is abusive towards his girlfriend, so you have a talk with him on ways to resolve an issue without resorting to violence. After a number of heart-to-heart talks, your friend hits his girlfriend again. This crushes you, and you tell yourself, “I must be a bad friend.” No, you did the best you could to reach out to your friend to change his behavior, but he didn’t. What your friend ultimately does, is his responsibility, not yours.

Maybe you’re helping your little cousin to do her homework. However, she still doesn’t complete her homework. Don’t put blame on yourself. You can only help her so much. Your little cousin has to make an effort on her own to learn from her studies and finish her homework.

Stay positive my friends!
