Positive thinking sounds useful on the surface. Most of us would prefer
to positive rather than negative. But, positive thinking is also a
soft and fluffy term that is easy to dismiss. In the real world, it rarely
carries the same weight as words like work ethic or persistence.
But those views may be changing.

Research is beginning to reveal that positive thinking is about much
more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude.
Positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help
you build skills that last much longer than a smile.
The impact of positive thinking on your work, your health,
and your life is being studied by people who are much smarter than me,
One of these people is Barbara Fredrickso.

Fredrickson is a positive psychology researcher at the University of
North Carolina and she published a landmark paper that provides surprising
insights about positive thinking and its impact on your skills. Her work is
among the most referenced and cited in her field and it is surprisingly
useful in everyday life. Let's talk about Fredrickson's discovery and
what it means for you.

Hello world i am very excited to start this linux project and ready to kill it
Linux behind the scenes. The fact is that most people today are using
Linux without ever knowing it whether on their phones, online when
using Google,Facebook,Twitter, GPS devices, and maybe even in their cars, or
when using cloudstorage for personal or business use.

While the presence of Linux on all of these systems may go largely
unnoticed by consumers, the role that Linux plays in this market is a
sign of how critical it has been.

Limited functionality devices that require good security and a small
footprint and fill so many niches in our technology driven lives run
some variety of Linux, and this isn't likely to change. Instead,
we'll just be seeing more devices and continued reliance on open
source to drive them.

I was trying to fill a hole in my heart that felt like it went right
through my body and out the other side. I felt mildly ashamed all
the time, like everyone who looked at me could see straight through
me because I lacked substanc. However at the time, I only had a
vague idea of what might be at the heart of my pain and even less
idea how to pull myself out of it.

Epiphanies can come in strange ways. One afternoon I walked into a
room at university and someone from a previous class had left a few words
on the whiteboard. I don't know who, the context or why those words
had been left there, but they hit me:
Are you going to be the hero of your own life or are you going to
leave that role for someone else.

I was spellbound. I wrote the question down and dwelt on it.
I started to wonder about life as a personal hero's journey for
every one of us. I suspected being your own hero might have something
to do with championing yourself, developing your strengths and being
kinder and brave.
