    Re: 20171125, Article, Taichung

    Dear Taichung Happiers,

    Job? Just believe in yourself!

    How many moments have you fixed your eyes on the path when a noise caused you to lean further out of the door? Why did Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) sigh deeply at this thought “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all”? If this question troubles you, do you feel the urge to run your palm slowly and steadily over the window of life purposes? Do you work hard to make a living and simultaneously wonder how to make a life? What job would you take to have indisputable impacts on more people? Our host Vicki has been pondering over how to meet the requirements for actualizing our aspirations. Actually, either you are a boss or an employee, you are a leader—the leader of your dreams. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to join us in sharing how you find a real feather in your cap.

    Lead your dreams with faithfulness and focus. Does your childhood dream inform your unique talents or your unique talents inspire your childhood dream?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCiKb9jWAVQ Never can we talk about jobs without thinking of Jobs. We’ve seen profound passion as bottomless as the sea on the faces of Steve Jobs fans, partly because of the mentoring he provided to encourage us to work on our true identity and strong uniqueness. "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it." Nevertheless, before we define the destined direction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sY-qwEYjs0&app=desktop , there is mist everywhere along the journey. To get out of the mist, are you as constant as the northern star? "The elevator to success is out of order. You'll have to use the stairs... one step at a time." To translate perseverance into everyday English is to focus on what matters most to us and fulfill the mission with greater dedication and devotion. https://hbr.org/2011/02/nine-things-successful-people

    Lead your dreams with lifelong learning—meanwhile, appreciate beautiful oops. Just where the sunlight of lifelong learning goes into the shadow on the flood of continuous change can be seen our polished performance. People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily. All right. Although researchers haven’t decided the most appropriate names for the non-academic skills for success, we cannot overemphasize the importance of the "4Cs” of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. Don’t worry—it’s not only for K-12—it is worthy of our lifelong learning goals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXT2STtm_54 The "4Cs” are skills, not talents. Everyone has the 4C muscles in their body. The secret coach to help us build the muscles is the appreciation of beautiful oops. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgYhukCCFR8 A Growth Mindset encourages fighting chances, exploring new experiences, and exceeding personal limits; a Growth Mindset meets and makes good use of mistakes; failure at a young age is indeed an intangible yet invaluable asset. http://www.businessinsider.com/sara-blakely-spanx-ceo-offers-advice-redefine-failure-retail-2016-7

    Lead your dreams with the Culture of Kindness and Confidence--personal culture and organizational culture. Me (at work): "I think I'm having a heart attack." My boss: "Do that on your own time!" Ingredients for cooking the Culture of Kindness and Confidence include team spirit, gratitude, vision, integrity, trust, respect, and optimism. However, hard times, like strong wind, sway the trees of our beliefs. When we can never decide whether analyzing more or analyzing less, whether organizing more or organizing less can truly lift us beyond our limits, kindness and confidence conquer all, in the long run. Should move our gaze to more values we can add to this world; should move our gaze to more ways we can do what we love and what we are good at. Serve. Serve more. And, lift others up. When we serve above and beyond, we find the meanings of our lives. https://www.inc.com/marcel-schwantes/10-convincing-reasons-to-consider-servant-leadership-according-to-research.html Moreover, confidence is the key to achieve professional best; confidence is not being always right, but being not fearful to be wrong. What picture seizes your heart while you feel any anxiety or self-doubt coming in? Honestly, we don’t have all the answers to every life lesson, yet, these research reports are assuring us an extraordinary life. http://time.com/81811/how-to-be-more-confident-5-research-backed-methods/ An extraordinary life. Apparently, Michelangelo had excellent eyesight for an extraordinary life. “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” Life does work that way, doesn't it? See? The film Justice League depicts the influence of selflessness and kindness and deciphers the significance of confidence to attend more and achieve higher. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo-gZcNO9WI

    “Dare To Be” by Steve Maraboli

    When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
    When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
    When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
    When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
    When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back
    When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
    When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
    When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
    When love hurts you, dare to love again.
    When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
    When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
    When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
    When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
    When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
    When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
    Dare to be the best you can –
    At all times, Dare to be!

    What is success but another name of life satisfaction? How to pursue value, instead of success? Author Aaron Lauritsen offers a further reminder. “Life's trials will test you, and shape you, but don’t let them change who you are.” Again, the strategy to live our lives on purpose is not merely a “quote, unquote” thing. None circumstances can match our happiest mood and make us perform most efficiently, but when we are surrounded by family and great friends who not only accept but also acknowledge who we are. Luckily, it’s always here Happiers farm each other’s perception produce with our true stories of discovering and demonstrating passion, patience, and perseverance in life. Again, kindness is contagious; confidence is contagious; happiness is contagious. Feeling your mind racing? Time to fly together, again. Buckle up! Join us. Thanks!!!

    Re: 20171118, Article, Taichung

    Dear Taichung Happiers,

    A festival is a festival is a festival.

    A festival is a festival is a festival. Can we keep ourselves entertained well enough with all types of celebrations, festival or no festival? Except for fun and escaping from our daily routine, how can festivals transform and transfer the character of cities and communities? Every single festival creates the touch, the taste, the smell, the sight, and the sound of traditions; every single festival from all around the world is a living culture museum. Award-winning Broadway producer David Binder sees responsibilities and possibilities through festivals. “Festivals promote diversity, they bring neighbors into dialogue, they increase creativity, they offer opportunities for civic pride, they improve our general psychological well-being.” So, have you added any festivals to your travel bucket list? Our host Harry is expecting the festival list to grow greatly. Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, welcome to join us in finding out the sentiments and spirits flying in festivals that we seldom secure in our modern societies.

    Add Book Festivals to your list. Book Festivals invite us to slow down, but keep pushing up. Reading is the light shining farther to instruct us in the influential perception in ourselves, others, and the world. What do you learn from your previous relationship with books? “One advantage reading books has over TV is you can’t read books and do housework at the same time.” Reading opens our minds to imagine others’ “shoes”; reading opens our eyes to explore new places; reading opens the door to constantly connect our past and our future. So, do you always smile from ear to ear while choosing books?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjexBeFYM6A Mortimer Jerome Adler (December 28, 1902 - June 28, 2001), an American educator and philosopher, came up with a concise definition of good books. “In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.” Moreover, Mr. 詹宏志 further clarified why reading, what indeed inspires us to read on, and how books acquire new meanings.https://theinitium.com/article/20160722-culture-reading-janonrobinson/ Never loosen your hands on books and step back. Reading turns us into faithful believers--faithful believers in the world of feasible. All right, let’s grab a cup of coffee and confirm the list consisting of Book Festivals. https://www.everfest.com/book-festivals

    From “Good Books” (by Edgar Guest)

    The fellowship of books is real.
    They're never noisy when you're still.
    They won't disturb you at your meal.
    They'll comfort you when you are ill.
    The lonesome hours they'll always share.
    When slighted they will not complain.
    And though for them you've ceased to care
    Your constant friends they'll still remain.

    Good books your faults will never see
    Or tell about them round the town.
    If you would have their company
    You merely have to take them down.
    They'll help you pass the time away,
    They'll counsel give if that you need.
    He has true friends for night and day
    Who has a few good books to read.

    Add Art Festivals to your list. Art Festivals invite us to shape and share beauty and benevolence out loud. What does art mean to you? Why should art exist? “Every time I paint a portrait I lose a friend.” Art is the water that always reflects more. Although art is confronting the challenge of new media, time after time, art works reassure us that meaningful voices will be heard. Hey, and, this Picasso in the Zoo has more.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly6UOKQDLvI Additionally, art is our desire for freedom—art helps us to develop a vision of self—art is the inner-life connections. Remarkably, the Nobel Laureate in literature Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (11 December 1918 – 3 August 2008) reasoned that “Art extends each man’s short time on earth, by carrying from man to man the whole complexity of other men’s lifelong experience, with all its burdens, colors and flavor.” Now, what do you think of art education? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRkusFzVVAU Can we take part in Art Festivals for self-education in art? Nowadays, the quantity of Art Festivals is dramatically increasing. As we see they are as they are, what do you prefer? While the power of art creating new culture, on the “dance” floor, everyone is so similar to and so different from each other; art teaches everyone to discover determination and dedication in their own way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFTpoAzXSDw

    Add Architecture Festivals to your list. Architecture Festivals invite us to be culturally and philosophically curious. What did Pharaoh say when he saw the pyramid? “Mummy’s home!” What’s the reverence and significance of architecture? Architecture is the breeze smiling silently above the water of all arts. Architecture represents who we are and dances to the song of the relationship between architecture and the public. No? Check out how the architecture of these Libraries makes a difference for their cities and communities. http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20170915-ten-of-the-most-beautiful-modern-libraries-in-the-world Architecture is the force of the city. Architecture Festivals celebrate our cultural identity and quality; we look out of the window of Architecture Festivals to understand and appreciate architecture in different cultures, different times, and different places. http://edition.cnn.com/style/article/waf-world-building-of-the-year-2017-shortlist-revealed/index.html Architecture creates a new language for us to communicate. Architecture requests and restores the work at the highest levels of performance. Author and speaker Deepak Chopra firmly believes “The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective - people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.” The way architecture advancing the opportunity for the problem among human, nature, and landscape can expose more than the art theme. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzesLw9K4fU

    A festival is a festival is a festival. Being happily connected is the brightest bliss. Indian charismatic guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh illustrated “The truth”. “The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival...because when you are unhappy, you also throw unhappiness all around.” Yes. Festivals have the profound power to stir our deepest emotions; festivals fascinate our curiosity about cultures and costumes and flourish our Global views. Wish our “Happy Festival” forever goes on and on, where we exchange ideas, celebrate the connections in our life, and meet the real need to contribute to this community. Join us. Thanks!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_Uo03zvakU
