We all have been in the face of failure and defeat and we never like it. And yes, we have always been told things like “Never give up, never surrender,” or something along those lines. But what makes people successful, innovative, and resilient? How can you recover from failure? I’ll talk about my own experiences, but first lets see how successful people see failure.
During these days, whether you like it or not, we are constantly being monitored and tracked. Don’t believe me? In Minneapolis, a father walked into a Target Store demanding Target to apologize. His high school daughter had been mailed coupons to baby appliances, and was therefore suggesting for his daughter to get pregnant. After they apologized, the father realized that his daughter was indeed pregnant. But how did Target know this? As it turns out, Target had been tracking the products she had recently been buying, and the algorithms pointed to the fact that she was pregnant, and so she was mailed the coupons. Okay, that isn’t even the begging of ways to monitor and track people down. We have mobile phones with built in GPS, debit card information, and much more. Despite all this, around 2000 people in the US disappear completely. How is this possible? Lets find out.
Right before I entered high school, I was always told “High School goes by so quickly, so don’t waste your time, and do things while you can.” In fact, it seems like everyone says that now a days. However, this ins’t just some old proverb. There is an actual mathematical explanation on why time seems to fly by so quickly the older we get.
Now there is a relatively simple explanation for this phenomenon. Think of it this way; after your turned 1 years old, 1 year represents your entire life. When you turn 2 years old, 1 year represents half of your life. Finally, when you turn 17, 1 year represents 1/17th of your life. See the pattern? As you get older, 1 year represents less and less of your life, and eventually, time just seems to “fly by”. This could explain why our childhood seemed to take so long to complete, and when we reach high school and beyond, things go by quickly.

Most of you have probably been asked or heard of people seeing ghosts before and this is a highly discussed topic because nobody actually knows for sure. Ghosts could be among us for all we know or they could just be a complete myth, but for now we don’t know and maybe we will never know, but for now lets just say they do exist. Continue reading
