This is one of two videos I am in that helps explain our new IDEA program. I enjoyed every minute of making them and look forward to more.

Art Of Life: "Teachers can be a living example to their students. Not that teachers should look for students to idealize them. One who is worth idealizing does not care whether others idealize them or not. Everyone needs to see that you not only teach human values but you live them. It is unavoidable sometimes you will be idealized -- it is better for children to have a role model, or goal, because then the worshipful quality in them can dawn."

Art Of Life: "Let Your Smile Change the World, Never Let the World Change Your Smile."

If asked your opinion about a topic you have little knowledge, it is perfectly acceptable to indicate that you are not familiar enough with the issue to express an informed opinion. That shows respect for the questioner and yourself.

A plan (or policy, path, priority, proposal, and promise) is not a solution. Solutions require action directly related to making an immediate impact on the issue at hand.

Thrivapy Travel Mug. My daughter designed this mug today and I had to get it in the Thrivapy Gear store.

Looking for a new journal? Check out the newly designed Thrivapy Learning Lifestyle Journal. Perfect for remembering to play hard, study smart, and create more knowledge!

Show compassion

Throughout the day observe the people around you and notice when they are suffering. Whether they are a friend, colleague, neighbour or a stranger observe your motivation to help them and follow this with an inspired action.


Several times a day, stop and think about what you appreciate in that moment. It could be something about yourself, another person, the surroundings. If in doubt, keep looking until you do find something you appreciate.

Be empathetic

Throughout the day, put yourself in other people's shoes. A lover, a beggar in the street, a passer-by, a "bad" guy or someone else you encounter. Try to understand their perspective, to see through their eyes, to feel how it is to be each one of them.
