Learning guitar

Learning guitar can be frustrating for beginners, with the finger and hand positions seeming unnatural and uncomfortable when you’re new to holding a guitar. Adding to that, many different guitars have unfamiliar neck shapes and fretboard dimensions, which can add an extra degree of difficulty for those that are transitioning from one style of guitar to another. Although the beginner period of learning any instrument isn’t quite as fun as having mastered it, it’s easily possible to fast-track your progress and get the key skills under control without having to spend a massive amount of time on them. These three tips and tricks are designed to speed up your guitar progress and get you moving towards intermediate and advanced songs as quickly as possible.

#1 – Use tablature exercises to get your reading skills and finger movements to improve.
One of the hardest parts of mastering guitar is being able to read tablature effectively enough to make it truly second nature. While less complex than traditional musical notation, tablature can prevent a bit of a problem for absolute beginners, especially when coupled with fast musical exercises. In order to master finger movement and quick reading, lay down a couple of finger exercises on a sheet of tablature paper, and run through them quickly and in different keys. A good idea is to practice runs through the major and minor scales, using as many different keys, scale constructions, and string positions as possible. For example, run through the E major scale from the E string, from the A string, and from the D string, each time changing the scale shape and construction.

#2 – Learn from your favourite songs.
Half of the trouble for beginners is simply getting the motivation required to truly succeed at guitar. The problem comes down to the fact that most beginner guitar songs are pretty dull. Instead of focusing on the most basic songs possible, play the songs that you love to listen to, and alter the speed and complexity to make them appropriate for your playing abilities. You’ll learn more from working towards difficult songs that you enjoy than you will from mindlessly playing the same beginner songs over and over. Find an artist that you love, get their songs through tablature or standard music, and work towards them over time.

#3 – Focus on the primary skills first.
Sweep picking arpeggios might look and sound cool, but it’s rarely used in the context of your average rock song. The problem that faces most beginners is the illusion of real choice. With so many different techniques out there, it’s easy to start away at the most complex and impressive without having a real understanding of the basic techniques that make those skills possible. Instead of going straight to sweep picking and string skipping, focus on the basic movements that make those skills possible. Alternate picking, rhythmic strumming and basic left hand scale movements are good places to start.

A 4 Step Morning Routine That Can Change Your Life Completely.

Photo Credit: Natalia Pelaez

“There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing. It’s not a matter of time; it’s a matter of desire. — Nina Yau

And a matter of choice. If you are someone who is struggling with some aspect of your life, remember: “if you want things to change, you have to change”(Jim Rhon). So choose to make plenty of time for yourself, as you are your life’s most important project. Make the habit of working on yourself, your life’s greatest desire.

Change has to start somewhere. Here is something I learned in the process of working to improve the quality of my life: How you live your mornings can either make you or break you. You either choose to wake up feeling upbeat, positive, and ready to own your day, or you can dread your mornings, fill them with negativity, and let the day go past you. One way or another we all strive for the former; so make it a habit to choose to feel good.

How can you start the process of improving the quality of your life? By starting your morning’s right! The morning is the time of the day in which your brain is the sharpest. For this reason, mornings should be devoted to your most important work: bettering yourself and the quality of your life.

The Benefits- Morning routines set you up for success. Following a strong morning routine develops the power of self-discipline, good habits, and a stronger and positive mindset. It also brings you closer to finding and accomplishing your goals.

“The uncommitted life is not worth living” — Socrates

In this article, I want to share with you 4 steps to a morning routine that can potentially transform your life the way it has transformed mine. You must set aside at least 30 minutes Click Here!of your morning for this routine. Also, find a space in your home in which you like to get work done.

As you read the article, keep in mind that developing and implementing an effective morning routine takes time and effort. There are things that may not work for you as well as they do for me. With time, and by trial and error, you can find practices more fitting to your style, goals, and schedule.

In the long run, routines are intended to be flexible to yourself and your growth. There are steps in your routine that may change over time as your mindset shifts and grows. There are others that will forever be part of the person you are and become.

Here’s the catch. The most important part of any morning routine is actually sticking to it. Zero discipline equals zero change. So be disciplined and committed if you want to see positive changes transpire in your life.

Step One: Express GRATITUDE.

“Gratitude is contagious.” — Benjamin Hardy.

After a good night of sleep, the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is head to my work space. I sit comfortably in my chair and I begin to express gratitude to God and the universe. I do this in the form of prayer. I don’t just think it, I converse it. I use a tone of voice that soothes and energizes me. You can develop a form of expressing gratitude that is comfortable for you and your beliefs.

Spend 3–5 minutes being thankful for everything that you have and are physically and spiritually. Be thankful for the lessons you’ve learned, the experiences you’ve lived, and the blessings that are yet to come into your life. Being thankful for your life is one of the quickest ways to shift your mindset from negative to positive.

Gratitude is the most powerful practice, feeling, and form of expression that exists. Because living life in gratitude means living life in abundance. And when you live life in abundance, you attract everything in abundance (Benjamin Hardy). Additionally, gratitude is known for being a method that multiplies your blessings (Louie Schwartzberg). You can’t feel unhappy and unfortunate when you feel grateful. Gratitude guarantees happiness.

Lastly, gratitude keeps you grounded and brings your mind to the present moment. It reminds you that despite moments of hardship and distress, you are still full of blessings. It guides you to understand that “it is not what happens that determines the quality of your life, but what you do about Click Here!it that changes everything.” -Jim Rhon

Step 2: Personal Development

To improve our lives we must: 1) invest time in learning, 2) maximize our learning experiences, and 3) not waste time on things that will set us back from accomplishing our goals.

After my daily prayer, I dive into personal development. I spend 10 minutes either listening to or reading about personal development. It is during this step that you learn about how to work on yourself, improve your life experiences, and become successful in everything that you do. Personal development teaches you about the power of morning routines, goal setting, character development, and self-discipline.

The key in this step is that you choose quality material to learn from. Listen to people that are known for their success in personal development and in their career. While you can learn something meaningful from anybody, you should only take advice from and follow the footsteps of those who are good at what they give advice for. So take your time to research about books and motivational icons you can listen to or read about every morning. The good news is this is not a complicated task. Once you find a good source, you will be prompted to other reliable sources. (Find a list of suggestions at the end of this article)
Step 3: Writing and Goal Setting

Next, comes writing and goal setting. Writing is a great habit to develop in your daily routine. It helps you explore your ideas, ground your thoughts, and develop a profound understanding of your learning. Also, writing down your ideas and goals keeps a record of your progress! It is awesome to look back and see the improvement you make over time.

Spend around 7–9 minutes on this step. You can complete this step immediately after personal development or simultaneously with it. I do it both ways and I recommend it that way. Here is why: writing and setting goals consist of those two parts, respectively.

Part one.
This part consists of taking notes on what you learned you from your lessons that specific morning. I do this part simultaneously with personal development because I take notes as I go. I normally jot down meaningful quotes, techniques that I plan to put into practice, and topics or ideas that I will later explore and write about during my free time.

Part two.

“DirectionClick Here! determines destination” –Jim Rhon.

Goal Setting. This is the most important part of this step and a habit that you must create in order to get somewhere in life. You can’t expect to get somewhere if you don’t know where you are headed. Goal setting, in particular, is the most dynamic step in my morning routines.

If you’re just starting the process of self-improvement and haven’t yet thought about your life goals (both short- and long-term), spend your first week or two thinking of them and writing them down. Once you’ve thought about your goals, use this time revisit them.

Check-mark the ones you have achieved. Study the progress you have made with those that require more work. Determine new short-term goals that will bring you closer to your main achievement. Always write them down. Remember, big achievements come with small successes. It is the completion of these smaller goals what will develop within you the confidence you need to keep moving forward. Don’t skip steps. Don’t cheat Click Here!yourself. The only way to see your dreams materialize is by constantly working on them.

At the end of this step always take the time to envision your goals as completed. See and feel them unfold. Generating those vibrations will help you attract what you want and expect to achieve.

Step 4: Nourish Your Body with an Awesome Breakfast and Be Mindful Of it!

“Take care of your body, it is the only place you have to live in” — Jim Rhon.

Everything in life is about balance. Every aspect of your well-being is connected to one another. Therefore, part of working on yourself is taking care of your body. Feeding your body the right foods will give you the energy you need to begin and endure your day. It can help you stay focused on your goals because illness and discomfort are not present to derail you form them. Take care of your body, so it can take care of you.

Also, be mindful.

In this step it is important that you practice mindfulness. When you are making your breakfast, make that moment the present occasion. Take pleasure in going through the process of making it and eating it. Your goal is to experience the present. Don’t think about what you are going to do once you get to work, or what you are going to tell your friend or boyfriend that morning. Focus on the present moment and appreciate every aspect of it.

The process of appreciating your present life experience is a meditating practice that helps you unleash your inner confidence. So start this practice with your breakfast, but try to apply it throughout the day in all of your experiences. It is through mindfulness and appreciation that we turn the ordinary into something extraordinary. Adopt this practice and see your inner confidence “shine forth like a light in a dark cave” (The Buddha Walks into a Bar, 2012 pg.45).

Before I go, want to leave you with these words to ponder on:

As Jim Rhon says- “A winner is the person who wakes up every morning and fights the fight.” The person who wakes up to defeat their doubts, push themselves to their limits, and do their best at everything they do.


What do you say?

Laura Jaramillo

Thank you for taking the time to read this article. I hope you put my ideas into practice! Believe in yourself and know that you can pursue your dreams as long as you work for them!

My Favorite Breakfast

This picture is worth sharing.

Below, see my favorite breakfast recipe- try it out!

Add in a bowl:
1. 1/3 of a cup of quick oats 
2. 1/3 of a cup of unsweetened almond milk
3. Half a cup of plain Greek yogurt (you can use ¼ of a cup vanilla flavored Greek yogurt and ¼ of a cup of the plain one if you’re not used to eating the plain one alone)
4. One banana 
5. Add berries to your discretion 
6. Chia seeds
7. Optional: 2 teaspoons of peanut or almond butter

Voila! This is hands down the best breakfast in the world! It fuels your body for your busy mornings. The best part is that you can play with it by adding different fruits, types of seeds, and kinds of nut butter! Also, if you want to consume higher protein content during breakfast, add a hard boiled egg on the side. Believe it or not, they go great together!

Here is the list of people and books I suggest you use to begin your journey in personal development. It is not very long, but it will definitely get you started.

Listen to and read about: 
1. Eric Thomas
2. Les Brown
3. Tony Robbins 
4. Nick Vujicic
5. Jim Rohn

Search for bestseller books on personal development. I strongly encourage you to start with reading “Money and The Law of Attraction.” This book and the idea behind it will get you started on shifting your mind completely.

Lastly, follow amazing writers such as Benjamin Hardy (which I’m sure you already do if you are part of the Medium community!) and publications in Medium that publish content focused of health and personal growth and development!

Goals and methods of manipulating people through the media

Goals and methods of manipulating people through the media


We notice the fact of the massive influence of the media on the reality that surrounds us. It manifests itself in particular in shaping our knowledge and ideas, views and sympathies in every possible matter. It translates into our behavior and the manner and nature of our decisions.


Therefore, the first postulate that we are directed towards the media — and at the same time their duty — is reliability, that is, standing in the truth. The truth is the creation of the media. Departure from it, means manipulation, is a serious betrayal of their existence. At the same time, we remember that the dignity of man, including his freedom, is realized only in truth. “You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”

The times of crude propaganda have passed. Its contemporary forms, undertaken by dishonest media, are very sophisticated. —

  • the recipient is so deeply attached to the myths imposed on him that they become a closed circle for him, beyond which he does not leave;
    - he defends these myths himself, he reproduces them;
    - rejects the truth when it comes to it or does not allow its existence, or does not want to know it.
  • False information, or “ordinary” lie
  • Providing false information by the media is the simplest, but also the most risky for the perpetrators, a form of manipulation. The media counts on the ignorance of the real facts by the recipients. So they give lies. Sometimes very evident, because they assume that the addressee will not bother to check the information or obtain it at its source. Because why, since it has already been served on a media plate. In Poland, this method of manipulation is relatively easy due to the media monopoly held by narrow groups. By lying to recipients, you can count on the fact that they will not use an alternative source of information, especially if these sources are ridiculed.

“If so many (almost everyone) say the same, then it must be true.”

No information, or conspiracy of concealment


With the widespread dependence of human thinking (or its lack) on the media, especially television, there is a stereotype: “What is not in the media, it does not exist.” This stereotype reads vice versa: “What is on television, it really does exist”, in turn lies at the basis of the effectiveness of the media lie discussed above. How often one can hear an uncritical argument: “It is so, and not otherwise, because they said so on television.” The propaganda strength of the media is seen in this last example.

Philip moris ltd

1. Hiding from people a fact.


2. Silence can be a tool for indirectly negating something or someone. Well-known politicians know this well.

cold war, vietnam war etc

Some even share the slogan that “it’s better that the media talk about someone wrong than at all.”


Providing very important information as not relevant or irrelevant


Providing the information being prepared


In this case, we are dealing with a real event, but in a way to achieve a specific goal

the war in Iraq caused the destabilization of the entire Middle East Saddam did not have Chemical Weapons?

Another way of manipulation I saw was a television coverage of an important problem. Television, wanting to be regarded as objective, emitted statements “for” and “against” in equal numbers.

This is the problem Photo unicef

Hidden manipulation


Although every manipulation must be hidden, there are its special forms. In addition to various forms of hidden advertising, there are so-called subliminal messages referring to the subconscious. On television, they rely on an emission in which every now and then a framer appears with a certain content for a fraction of a second. The time of its emission is so short that the viewer is not aware of this information. However, the specific message goes to the brain and “lives its own life”. It is supposed to affect human behavior. It is a manipulation that has to circumvent the mind and will of the recipient.

Goebbels used to say that a lie repeated many times becomes true;Tramp?

True friendship will not fail Will give the last evenwidescreen widow, It will be with you in misery and inpoverty You do not have to ask her at all.

True friendship will give you a hand in need Ready toshare worries and worries, You will devote all your sparetime to you Because faithful to you never changes. True friendship has a beautiful face As no one else willunderstand, forgive The material benefits do not count Buton the mutuality of your feelings rather.

A true friend of wisdom advises There will be support inyou is great strength And will not cheat, will not lie,will not betray Is more sincere than false love.

So nurture the feeling of friendship Do not let her goaway in the world of the party Because with her is in thelife of the wedding and more clever, When next you checkedfriend.

Are you hosting a Thanksgiving party this year? If so, have you thought about making sure that you enjoy yourself? Unfortunately, when it comes to hosting a party, such as a Thanksgiving party, there are many party hosts who tend to worry more about their guests than themselves. While it is always important to make sure that your guests are having fun and enjoying themselves, what good is a party if you can’t enjoy it yourself?

When it comes to making the most out of your Thanksgiving party, there are a number of steps that you can take to make sure that you, as well as your guests, enjoy the party. Perhaps, the easiest way to do this is to start planning and preparing for your party early. Early preparation has been known to help make sure that everything is in order before your party gets underway; thus likely greatly reducing or eliminating the stress associated with planning a party. By examining all of your supplies ahead of time, you should be able to notice, ahead of time, whether or not something is missing. This means that you will not have to be worried about running out for extra supplies just as your party is starting to get underway.

If you are planning on incorporating a Thanksgiving dinner into your Thanksgiving party, it may be a good idea to start your cooking the day before. Of course, there will likely be some items on your menu, such as the Turkey, that you will want to cook the day of your party, but there are other items that you could easily prepare and store in your refrigerator. Limiting the number of tasks that you have to do, during your party or the day of it, will likely make it easier for you to enjoy yourself.

In addition to starting your cooking early, it may also be a good idea to ask your guests to help you. While many party hosts do not like to do this, many feel that they are intruding, it is quite normal. Each year, a large number of party hosts, in fact many, ask for assistance from their guests. You will also find that many of your family members or close friends would be more than willing to help you with your Thanksgiving party. Whether they come to your home and help you cook and hang party decorations or just bring a side dish that they prepared at home, you will likely benefit from the help. The more help that you receive, the less stressed you are likely to be and the less stress you have, the more you should be able to enjoy your party.

When you invite guests to you Thanksgiving party, it may be a good idea to ask them to either confirm or deny their invite. This will, without a doubt, make it easier for you to plan and enjoy your Thanksgiving party. By knowing how many guests should attend, you should be able to get everything prepared early and on time. Of course, you will always want to prepare for a few extra guests, but by asking your guests to confirm their presence, your Thanksgiving party should be a lot easier to plan and enjoy.

As you can see, there are a number of different steps that you can take to make planning and hosting a Thanksgiving party easy and stress free. As previously mentioned, the less stress you have, the more likely you are to enjoy yourself. Whether you ask for assistance from friends or start your preparations early, you should be able to enjoy yourself at your own Thanksgiving party.

The Two Minutes It Takes To Read This Will Improve Your Writing Forever

Each week I share helpful ideas in my 10 Ideas Worth Sharing newsletter. Sign up here to get next week’s ideas.

You’re busy, so I’ll keep this quick.

Following are the simplest tips I can give you to easily — and forever — improve the quality of your writing.

Delete the word “that.”

At least 90% of the times you use the word “that” can be removed from your writing and it will instantly make your sentence stronger.

Example: “You believe that I’m lying, but I’m not.” becomes “You believe I’m lying, but I’m not.”

Delete the words “I think.”

It adds nothing. Remove it to strengthen your point.

Example: “I think this is a good sentence.” becomes “This is a good sentence.”

Avoid words that end in “-ing.”

In most cases, the “-ing” softens your word and adds no value. Your writing will read better if you avoid it.

Example: “The experiences we’re seeking end up being underwhelming and even disappointing.” becomes “The experiences we seek often underwhelm and disappoint.”

Short sentences. Short paragraphs.

Most sentences can be cut in half. Don’t be afraid to have a two or three word sentence.

Keep paragraphs to less than three sentences.

White space is your reader’s friend.

Shrink your opening sentence.

Make it compelling, but keep it short and conversational.

Example: “This is a post that’s going to help you become a better writer.” becomes “I can help you.”

Amazon is the largest online retailer in the world

Over the past year, a growing number of people have leapt to take part in bitcoin’s meteoric rise. Teenagers have invested their college funds. Some families have mortgaged their homes and placed everything on the table. Even billionaires have suggested putting 10% of all assets into the digital currency.

There is a lot of money in play and people’s livelihoods and savings are on the line. As a vehicle of investment, bitcoin itself has an array of problems. It’s extremely volatile — suffering drops as high as 30% in a single day, funds are difficult to recover when hacked, and bitcoin’s technology may be behind other newer cryptocurrencies which offer greater anonymity, programmability, and scaling.

Most people tend to look at popular altcoins when they think about what could dethrone the current cryptocurrency king. But could the real threat come from a more material realm?

Amazon is the largest online retailer in the world

Boasting over 94 billion USD in sales last year, it handles almost half of all American online purchases and has operations across the globe. But despite offering a large variety of payment options, Amazon has yet to allow people to pay with bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.

As the leader in online retail, it’s in a prime position to do so. Any cryptocurrency Amazon adopted would surely see a huge surge of support. Given the current popularity of cryptocurrency, what exactly is Amazon waiting for?


One of the reasons Amazon may be avoiding cryptocurrency is their limited transaction speeds. Take a look at the top two major cryptocurrencies.

bitcoin: 7 transactions per second
ethereum: 15 transactions per second

Amazon peaked at 600 transactions per second during last year’s Amazon prime sale. If even a fraction of their traffic decided to pay with cryptocurrency, consumers would be stuck waiting hours for transactions to go through. Not a great customer experience.

Do slow transaction fees mean Amazon will avoid cryptocurrency? The tech giant is no stranger to innovative scaling solutions. Bitcoin and ethereum are currently too slow to support Amazon’s demands but other cryptocurrencies are not. An alternative cryptocurrency called ripple has tested speeds as high as 1500 transactions per second.

Why Amazon Might be Considering Cryptocurrencies

Although it hasn’t announced an official position on cryptocurrencies, there are several indicators that suggest Amazon is considering this space and not necessarily in a bitcoin friendly way.

On October 31st Amazon reportedly bought,, and This move might be simply covering their bases. Or it might be insight into future endeavours.

There are already services that sell amazon gift cards for bitcoin so in some respect Amazon offering bitcoin on their site would simply cut out the middleman

Finally one of Amazon’s core principles is ‘Customer Obsession’. If customers demand a cryptocurrency payment method Amazon is sure to eventually give them what they want.

Given that many of its shoppers buy goods internationally, cryptocurrency could be an excellent way for shoppers to enjoy a standardized currency without worrying about exchange rates.

What Could Happen

There are a few ways this could play out that could endanger bitcoin’s current reign:

1. Amazon could stay out of the cryptocurrency sector

In order to cross the chasm from investment to currency, bitcoin needs to gain widespread adoption from merchants. It’s unlikely that Amazon will stay out of this sector indefinitely but if it did bitcoin would certainly suffer from being excluded by the world’s largest online retailer. This wouldn’t kill bitcoin, but it would hurt its potential as a currency.

2. Amazon could adopt a competitor to bitcoin

This seems likely if bitcoin cannot keep up with Amazon’s required transaction speeds. Ripple is a potential contender with 1000+ TPS. This scenario could definitely endanger bitcoin’s reign as the top cryptocurrency. A fictional deal with Visa raised the value of the Monaco cryptocurrency by almost 700%. Any deal with Amazon will rocket the partner cryptocurrency upwards. If Amazon chooses to go this route it probably wouldn’t kill bitcoin, but whatever coin they went with could knock bitcoin out of its top spot.

3. Amazon could create its own cryptocurrency

If Amazon Prime video is any indication — Amazon loves to play in high potential spaces where it can leverage its huge army of developers to make big plays. Its holdings range from cloud storage, to video streaming, to hardware offerings. If it sees potential in the cryptocurrency space it has the technical resources to break into it.

It would not be the first time a large established company has launched their own token. In September 2017, the chat giant Kik launched an ICO raising $75 million dollars. Overstock, a publically traded e-commerce company, has seen its stock raise by 30% since announcing it plans to ICO this December.

If Amazon created its own cryptocurrency they could spread its use across their many services: from Amazon Prime, to Twitch, to Audible, allowing consumers to easily transfer funds within the Amazon ecosystem. They could outcompete any other cryptocurrency and entice mainstream adoption by offering a 5% or 10% discount on purchases made with AmazonCoin. With tens of thousands of developers and high paying salaries it could find the technical talent to design a coin that outpaces bitcoin when it comes to scaling and privacy concerns.

This is the most dangerous scenario for bitcoin but it relies on Amazon taking a major leap into a field it has so far avoided.

Keep an eye on Amazon as demand for cryptocurrencies rises

For now Amazon seems to be keeping quiet about its plans in this space. But whatever cryptocurrency Amazon chooses could become a household name overnight.

Whether Amazon chooses bitcoin, ethereum, or something else altogether, their choice will have dramatic consequences on the existing cryptocurrency landscape. Cryptocurrency and the technology behind it are here to stay, but bitcoin and its reign as the number one cryptocurrency might not be.
