“Those
who know the truth are not equal to those who love it.” ~ Confucius

We all
know what is right and what is wrong down in our soul which God had
planted in us – the truth – when we were born into this
world.

   

“God is with you in all that you do.” ~
Bible

Thank you, God, for the Truth..and that
all will be out in the light at your perfect divine time. Amen.

“Where there is shouting, there
is no true knowledge.” ~Leonardo da Vinci

 

This is similar to
one of the quotes that refers to the degree of our knowledge in
general; if we can’t make children understand what we teach, then
we really don’t understand it ourselves either. As being a newbie
who just started out in the world of social media, I’ve learned
there are different levels of social media profession. They all
look the same and act the same from the starters’ point of view,
but the genuine skill levels are very different; Those who
understand each new comer’s level and coming down to their levels –
where newbies are at – and help them understand, and lift them up,
nurture, and encourage them; and Those who unknowingly and perhaps
unintentionally tend to put newbies on their leadership level,
being unaware of the fact that newbies may be still at the starting
point where they haven’t yet come to fully grasp what the social
media is all about and what it does and can do in relation to their
offline/online businesses.

There is always a beginning for
everything, and it does take time in any field to gain knowledge
with a thorough understanding. I remember feeling sort of honored
though to find myself having been picked out from among other
billions of people in the world by those top leaders and put on
their twitter follower lists and found myself interacting with
them. When billions of twitters tweeting everyday, what an honor
that was, and as I was starting out as a newbie, the number of
followers was merelya few thousands. What amazed me was that those
top leaders with over 300,000 followers who picked me as oneof
their list-following buddies seemed to have treated me as if I were
in the exact same place as they were in terms of the level of
understanding of social media, when I was just a beginner and the
baby in the world of social media. I remember questioning to myself
why that could be possible? I was merely a newbie with much
enthusiasm, wanting to do this and that to learn and to make as
many friends as I could to have many followers like those with
400,000. :) Funny, looking back now, thinking of how enthusiastic I
was, it was sort of cute of me like a little kid, being excited,
but with no knowledge as to how. With not having many followers and
not having many twitter buddies, it was so easy to fall into ..
sort of self-talking, as all I was seeing was the twitter.com’s
window screen, and not seeing people face-to-face unlike in real
life. Looking back now, still being a newbie yet, I find myself
smiling over my errors. I was ignorant, causing some
misunderstanding which I am being aware now. Life really is
learning, yes, indeed. We learn from our mistakes/failures.

Seeing
and knowing the level of those beginners and the way people give
them a helping hand in kindness or approaching them to build the
good online relationships on a continual basis is one way/barometer
to find their leadership level, whether they really understand what
they are talking about and what they’re teaching about. Not
considering how little newbies know about social media – where they
are at – in terms of the level, and while knowing where their
leadership skills they think it stands, and putting them up on
their same level, as if newcomers are involved in social media for
10 years does clearly speak their actual number of yrs of S Media
involvement/experiences or the level of their professions.

Thanks to
God for letting me see this with insight and learn there is quite a
huge difference here – genuine leaders and not so genuine leaders,
whether their leaderships come from the genuine leadership
experiences or coming straight from the book, not associated with
the real-life experiences. I’ve learned quite a bit while having
tried to learn what this thing that everyone was talking about –
‘social media’ was all about, by watching and observing from both
the truly experienced whose character, action, and the knowledge
were in align- ment with their genuine reputation that they
wouldn’t have to claim or prove any bit of it themselves but the
world would just simply acknowledge their matured professional
level as well as through their character which really is the
‘must-have’ ingredient that would enhance the degree of a success.
We were naturally (maybe God-given) born and equipped in us with
the skill to see what our physical eyes cannot see by hearing just
one or two statements or even a few words. That’s the intuition
which God implanted in us when we were born into this world. People
are watching without appearing to do so.

 

*****

 

One quote goes, ‘The dignity of truth is
lost with much protest.’ True, isn’t it. Where there is the truth
there is no need to repeatedly and consciously protest giving a
continual flood of explanation, justification, nor modification or
covering up what the truth is. There is no need for anyone to ask
or seek the world’s approval either. Ultimately, the most people –
both the experienced and the inexperienced are naturally
equipped/gifted with the ability to be able to find that out for
themselves and see the genuineness of success, talents, integrity,
and that the character which enhances the level of their profession
is what creates the genuine successful leaders whose hearts/minds
naturally go out to others to help create others’
reputations/leaders for the sake of others by using their time for
good use and for others.

 

*****

 

The genuine reputation vs. The microwaved
reputation with no substance but always the ‘I, I’ focused, thus
unable to identify the real issue and the problem, as well as the
goal/purposes as to where ones are heading to, as the ‘I, I, and I’
and merely wishful Hollywood mentality does not consist of the
real-life experiences but merely came straight from the book with
no substance and wishful thinking. The inmature actions, gossips,
self-centeredness, self-imposed and justificational behaviors,
which are not found in most cases in the natural behaviors or
reaction/action of genuinely successful leaders, simply speak about
themselves in terms of proficiency and the length of the career
history as leaders. True/false. Could it be that inexpe- rienced
non-leaders could get a chance or have the idea/ or dream of
becoming the leaders, simply because this were all happening in the
cyber world, unlike the offline real world, where no tangible
real-life interac- tions or activities take place. Is this what the
Social Media all about..? That..everyone can have any kind of
opportunity, if one pursues further enough, whether or not you have
talent/gifts? “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy
concept. – Ansel Adams

“A great man never feels great. A small
man never feels small.” ~ (Chinese Prov.)..I believe this applies
to any type of profession or business in the various
industries.

[..as I came across the above quote,
this reminded me of what I had learned way back last year. Thanks
to God. Life is a series of learning, indeed. What we learn becomes
our tissues and fibers of our whole being, when especially learned
from our mistakes/failures, and as a person who tend to live with
the challenging spirit in all aspects of my life, having it all in
my blood/DNA, I must say I was very enthusiastic to the extent,
having crossed further down the borderline of extra challenges and
enthusiasms, when many other parts of my life were already taking
up lots of my time and attention. I never change. I should change.
I should learn to take it easy. My curiosity, enthusiasm, and
energy to continually further improve myself has never vanished,
while I am not as young as I used to be. I still find myself like a
little kid, being so enthusiastic about everything, never taking
time to stop and rest. I must always be reminded to push myself to
stop working, with my brains unused just to rest.. I studied very
hard. I worked very hard. And I am still doing the same to this
day, when in fact I should start changing my busy lifestyle to a
peaceful & restful one.

..Contemplating ..over certain things in
this quiet precious moment. Grateful to you, God, for another
dimensional insight and wisdom. Time for rest.] (Need to improve my
English. I will write the next blog in Japanese. Learning new
things always excites me..

   

“The evils of government are directly
proportional to the tolerance of the people.” ~ Frank

“Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do
what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.” ~ David
Frost

    

“A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus
but a molder of consensus.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

    

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional
love will have the final word in reality. This is why right,
temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” ~ Martin
Luther King, Jr.

     

“We must learn to live together as
brothers or perish together as fools.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

This blog is my personal journal, thus was initially intended for myself. Whoever happens to come across my post is certainly welcomed to read it, though I'm unsure if it would inspire you. It does for me, as it's for me. I sometimes read back what I wrote and help motivate myself in my spiritual walk. I enjoy my everyday life. Blessed with many good quality friends and my great musical and artistic talents. I am naturally a happy smiley person, especially when I am surrounded by likeminded people whose value system is similar to mine. I also enjoy meeting new people who help me move out of my comfort zone to continually grow. I prefer people who are naturally honest and transparent with a sense of good integrity. I've been enjoying my life more and more especially for the past half year. Hope this season is bringing you lots of special and blessed moments filled with joy and many laughter. Thanks for visiting my new wordpress blog page today. Have a wonderful day! May God bless you. 😊🌅 - About 'Me'
