Your life is okay. You have a job, even though it’s not great; you can pay your bills; you have friends and family that you see often.

There are things wrong with your life, of course, but isn’t that the way everyone lives? You just accept them. No, you don’t have much motivation to do anything differently. Life just happens, day to day.

Ways to Get Rid of the Negative Thoughts Destroying Your Motivation

What you have is a “settlement” mentality. And that mentality has been nurtured by a lot of negative thoughts. And those negative thoughts have destroyed your motivation to push yourself forward to greater heights.

Well, it’s time to decide not to settle for that, so here are the solutions for getting those negative thoughts out of your head.

Negative Thought: There is Just too Much Wrong in My Life – Nothing will Change.

Solution:

Go visit a cancer ward for children; volunteer in a soup kitchen. Then, think about how much is wrong in your life. It really seems pretty petty to be taking up so much of your thought.

Make a list of all of the things you have to be grateful for, and read them every day. What this does is create an attitude of positivity and optimism. And when you have that attitude, you can make plans to move forward – find a job you will love; lose 20 pounds, or whatever you may want to change in your life.

Negative Thought:  I don’t set goals anymore because I never achieve them.

Solution:

Really. Did you learn to read and write as a kid? Did you learn the skills you are using in your present job? These were all goals although you may not have called them that at the time.

Now, you may not have achieved every goal 100%, so you think that having no goal is better than only 75% attainment. Well, maybe we should tell that to the student who was failing English but now has a 75% in the course. Is he a failure? No. He’ll take that 75% right now, bask in his success, and set a new goal for 85%.

You need to write down your goals. Once you do that, you own them. And you need to decide what you can do tomorrow or within the week toward those goals.

Do you want a new job? Then update your resume, sign up for a course, or get online and see what kinds of openings there are in your career field. Maybe that’s only 20% progress toward the goal, but it’s your new beginning.

Negative Thought: I have too many obligations so there is no time for me to take on any new challenges right now.

Solution:

You have to learn to say no. If you are spending all of you time with obligations to others, you are what psychologists call a “pleaser.” You see your worth only in serving others, not yourself.

This is a negative thought pattern that has developed over time, and it will take time to break. The other problem with this behavior is that inside you are resentful and bitter about it.

The only way to begin this change is to say “no” one time. The person to whom you have said “no” may be angry, but s/he will get over it or move on and find another pleaser. And you will feel just a bit liberated.

Saying “no” will become easier, and you will then have time to focus on what you want. Just the feeling of great freedom will be a great motivator to take on some “me” challenges.

Negative Thought: I have made lots of mistakes in my life so far. I really need to spend time thinking about those failures.

Solution:

Past mistakes can stall you. They can make you fearful of trying anything new, because you may make the same mistakes again.

There are two kinds of mistakes – the ones you can correct and the ones you can do nothing about. Your first step is to divide your mistakes up into those two categories.

If you can fix a mistake, do it. You’ll have it off your plate and out of your mind. If you have made mistakes that you can’t do anything about now, how does ruminating on them fix them? It doesn’t, and you have to move on.

Here’s how to do that. Reflect on why and how you made that mistake. Now reflect on what you learned from it so that you won’t make it again. Once you have your “plan” for not repeating mistakes, you have something new to think about – something that will motivate you to take some risks again.

Negative Thought: If it can’t be perfect, I don’t want to try.

Solution:

There is a wonderful story about a young boy and star fish. His solution to a problem was not perfect, but it was what he could do, and he took great satisfaction in that. It’s hard to live as a perfectionist – hard, because no one and no thing that man has created will ever be perfect.

It’s not really perfection you are striving for – it is the motivation to move forward and to improve. Wayne Dyer, who was a New-Age author had this to say about what should motivate us: “It’s not about being perfect or better than anyone else. It’s about being better today than you were yesterday.”

So, what is your improvement plan? What can you do better tomorrow than you did today? Pick just one thing. In doing that one thing, you will be motivated to do more. And a whole new pattern of thought is being developed.

Your Takeaway

You are not going to wake up tomorrow without any negative thoughts and filled with motivation. But, if you sincerely and genuinely begin to practice the solutions above, over time all of that pessimism will gradually be replaced with the positivity that motivation requires.

If you’re shopping for CBD, you may find it difficult to choose the right brand or product for you. Now that CBD is becoming more popular and mainstream, companies big and small are fighting to join the lucrative market.

But which brands can you trust? There are some key things to check for when your shopping for CBD that every savvy shopper should know.

The Ultimate CBD Shopping guide

Varieties of CBD

There’s something out there for everyone in today’s massive, explosive CBD market. Some of the wildest cannabinoid-infused products available include toothpaste, coffee, lube, and suppositories.

The most popular forms of CBD, however, are tinctures, edibles, vapes, and beverages. Additionally, many people use cannabis balms or salves for their skin. CBD is commonly used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, inflammation, and more.

Overall, each form of CBD has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. In the end, which variety you choose will come down to personal preference.

CBD Tinctures

CBD tinctures are concentrated oil extracts sold in bottles with droppers. When using a tincture, drops of CBD oil are placed under the tongue and ingested sublingually.

This is one of the simplest and most popular ways to take CBD. Taking CBD sublingually produces the fastest results, meaning you can alleviate stress, anxiety, or pain in as little as 15 minutes. 

Infused Food & Beverages 

Now that CBD is a trend among the mainstream, food and beverage companies are looking to add the compound to their products. Modelez, the makers of Oreo cookies, have considered producing a line of CBD-infused snacks.

CBD products are currently available in the form of beverages, candy, cookies, and more. Massive companies and startups are both releasing exciting, innovative edibles. Check your local dispensary to see if they sell CBD gummies, sodas, or snacks.

CBD Vape Cartridges

CBD vape cartridges are small pods full of cannabis oil that can be heated up, vaporized, and inhaled. Vape pens are popular because they’re discreet, portable, and typically refillable.

Another reason people like vapes is because you can experiment with different flavors and dosages. Vaping CBD produces fast effects, making it an ideal treatment for stress and anxiety. Disposable and refillable CBD vapes can be purchased online or at most dispensaries. 

Is CBD Legal to Buy?

CBD oil is legal in all 50 states, but it’s a bit of a tricky gray area. Since the Farm Bill has been passed under federal law, hemp products are now legal nationwide. This means that CBD oil extracted from hemp plants is legal in all 50 states.

CBD oil extracted from marijuana plants, however, is still illegal in several states. The difference is subtle, but full-spectrum CBD extracted from marijuana plants is only available in states with medical or recreational marijuana. 

Federally, CBD oil produced from hemp plants is legal. One major reason for this is that hemp plants do not produce buds and contain almost no THC. CBD products extracted from hemp plants are guaranteed to be completely free of THC. This type of CBD oil, often called hemp oil, still provides medical benefits, but is significantly less potent.

The Cost of CBD

If you’re shopping for CBD, you may find the high price of decent quality products shocking. What makes CBD oil so expensive? The cost starts with farming the hemp or marijuana plants. Expenses related to land and farming equipment can be enormous.

The real reason that CBD is so expensive though, is extraction. After the cannabis is harvested, CBD must be isolated and extracted. The machinery for this process can cost as much as $200,000. These massive expenses cause CBD products to have a high price tag.

Why Extraction Method Matters

CBD can be extracted using different methods, leading to varying levels of quality and cost. When you’re shopping for CBD, one thing to check for is the method of extraction.

How the plant was grown and processed will affect the quality and price of your product. Top quality CBD will have the least amount of contaminants, but may have the highest price. 

Full Spectrum

Full spectrum CBD products contain CBD along with other cannabinoids and terpenes. These products are still THC-free and do not get you high, but they do produce something called the entourage effect.

The entourage effect occurs in the body when CBD interacts with these other natural compounds from the cannabis plant. This full spectrum effect boosts the therapeutic qualities of the CBD and makes it more effective as a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory.

CO₂

Some CBD products are created with CO₂ as the extraction method. This process is more expensive, but is generates potent, pure, high-quality results.

The cost of CO₂ extracted products is further driven up by the massive overhead associated with running the labs and the small batches of CBD oil able to be produced at a time.

Ethanol 

If you’re looking to try CBD without spending a ton of money, products made through ethanol extraction may be a great choice for you. Using ethanol to extract cannabinoids from the marijuana plant is a relatively quick, cheap, and simple process. CBD products made with ethanol extraction are usually the most affordable, but this method can lead to a decrease in overall quality.

Varying Colors of CBD

When you shop for CBD oil, you may notice that there are a wide array of varying colors. What do these different colors mean and how do you choose the right one? The first type, filtered CBD oil, is usually gold, clear, or yellow.

This color reflects the clarity and purity of the extract. The next kind, decarboxylated oil, is typically brown, amber, or red in color. This oil is processed in a way that activates certain benefits of the cannabinoids.

The final variety of cannabis oil, sometimes referred to as raw oil, is green. The dark green hue is caused by remaining chlorophyll and plant fibers in the extract.

Save Money When You Buy CBD

There are plenty of ways to save money and find bargains when shopping for CBD. Since the industry is so young, many CBD companies are willing to offer discounts or free samples of their products to promote themselves.

Reaching out to distributors and attending cannabis events may help you get your hands on free CBD samples. Local dispensaries also often offer free samples, along with discounts for veterans, individuals with medical conditions, and others.

Reducing your CBD intake is another great tactic for saving money. By taking smaller doses, you can stretch out your supply longer. If you make only minor adjustments over extended periods of time, your body should hardly notice the difference.

Alternatively, you can continue taking the same dosage but switch to a lower quality product. Although full spectrum CBD is typically preferred, cheaper alternatives can provide similar benefits.

How to Shop for CBD

Buying CBD can be simple and affordable if you take the time to do a little research beforehand. More importantly, consult with your doctor before making any decisions regarding your health.

CBD is considered safe by healthcare professionals, but it can produce mild side effects or interact with other medications. Once you know which form of CBD you want to buy, find a lab-tested product that contains at least 200 milligrams of cannabidiol.

Since every person reacts differently to CBD, there’s no golden rule for picking the perfect product. Determining which variety, dose, flavor, color, and brand you like will come down to experimentation and preference.

The constitution tells use that we have the right to pursue happiness, but do we really know what that means.

Does it mean we need to look to others to make us happy?

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Does it mean we need to look to our money, job, spouse, parents, etc. to make us happy?

Does it mean we need to look to the lottery to make us happy?

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

One of the most frequent things we tell ourselves is “I will be happy when….”  This means you are waiting on a certain event to happen before you can be happy.  This also means that you are giving control of your happiness to others.

What if I told you you can be happy even if you are poor?  You can be happy even when you are going through a hard time?  You can be happy even though others around you are not?

Happiness is a choice!

 

Happiness comes from within.  True happiness can’t be bought, isn’t based on your surroundings, and doesn’t depend on anyone but you!  Happiness is a choice you make everyday.

For example, I know 2 ladies who struggle with the exact same disease.  One lady is always positive even when in pain, always has a smile on her face, and continues to try to bless others even though she isn’t feeling 100%.

The other lady, with the exact same disease and pain, is negative, looks for attention, talks constantly about what is wrong, and brings herself and everyone around her down.  You can be happy in tough situations – people do it everyday!  It is your choice to make.

3 Keys to Happiness

 

1.) Pursue it constantly

If you want something you have to go after it. This is true for success, wealth, great relationships and happiness.  You are the author of your own story.  This means that every choice, everyday is yours to make.

You can stand on the side of the road with a flat tire with a smile on your face.  You can be laying in a hospital bed with a smile on your face.  You can be standing in the unemployment line with a smile on your face.  This is because happiness comes from within, is your choice to make and isn’t defined by your current circumstances.

Just like with the ladies above, one lady made a choice to smile through her pain knowing it could be worse, knowing that she was blessed in other areas of her life, and believing that it would get better.  The other lady chose, whether she realized it or not, to focus on the negative, make it the center of her day, and believe that she was a victim, not a victor.

If you want happiness, you have to choose it.  It is the only way to get it.  Others may make you momentarily happy, but it is not their job, nor can they, keep you happy 24/7.  Make it your job to pursue your happiness every moment of every day!

2.) Everyone has something

We love throwing pity parties for ourselves and inviting everyone we know, even strangers we run into throughout the day. Somehow we believe that we can make ourselves feel better by telling everyone about our problems and how they are not our fault.

We love to play the victim.  But everyone has something and in most cases it is worse than your something.  You may be $20,000 in debt, but there is someone else who is $40,000 in debt.  There is someone who is homeless.  There is someone with literally has nothing – no money, no job, no home, no material items and just the clothes on their back.

You may be in the hospital or have a disease like our 2 ladies, but there is someone taking their last breath.  There is someone standing over a casket saying goodbye to a loved one.  There is someone in the ICU praying for just 5 more minutes to say goodbye.

Everyone has something.  You aren’t the only one with a sad story.  But you are the only one who can decide if you will be a victim or a victor.  You are the only one who can write your story.  Will it be a happy story or a depressing story?  Will it be a best seller or just sit on the shelf collecting dust?

The book containing the first 38 years of my life collected dust.  There were happy moments in it but it wasn’t worth reading.  There were a lot of reasons for that but the main one being it was written as a victim’s story.  My current story is looking to be a best seller – the story of a victor, not a victim.

3.) There is a treasure in every trial

Treasures can be very difficult to find.  Some are hidden so deep that we never find them even with a map.  But they are there and we need to make it our habit to find them in even the toughest situations.

When you find the treasure, it will always put a smile on your face because you realize that something good can and will come out of everything you go through.  17 years ago, I found myself $200,000 in debt, a single mom making $10,000 a year.

Where is the treasure in that situation?  But today, I am a happily married woman, mother of a talented senior in high school, successful business woman and financially free.

I found thousands of treasures along the way and I would have missed them if I hadn’t been told they were there and that I needed to look for them.  So I’m telling you – there is a treasure in every trial.  You may not see it right away, but you can stay happy knowing it will show up.

When I found myself in my situation 17 years ago, I could have given up.  I could have thrown a big pity party.  I could have played the role of victim and won the Oscar for it.  But that wasn’t the life I wanted to live anymore.

I wanted to be happy!  Then one day I heard it was my choice.  I wanted to know more about that and I pursued it by reading books and blogs just like you are today.  And then I put it into action.  This is a step that many people skip, but it is the most important step.

You have to decide and take action every minute of every day to be happy.  It is not a natural instinct especially when you are in the middle of something that is uncomfortable or a storm that wasn’t in the forecast.  But life happens.

Choose to be happy even in the storms of life.  Be the lady who was positive even in the pain and who blessed others in the process.  Don’t keep saying “I’ll be happy when…”.  Today is when.  Happiness is a choice!

Smoking weed and playing videos games is a classic combination. Not only does cannabis make playing games more fun, but it can also improve your skills too.

How is it possible that being high makes you a better gamer? As it turns out, marijuana can boost your performance for a number of reasons.

How Smoking Weed Can Make You a Better Gamer

If you’ve ever played video games while stoned before, you already know that smoking weed can make you better. Gaming while high is often more natural and effortless.

For this reason, the Electronic Sports League (ESL) has actually made drug testing mandatory for their tournament players. In the world of competitive, professional gaming, cannabis is considered a performance enhancing drug. 

Boost Your Gaming Skills With Cannabis

It’s clear that weed and video games pair nicely together, but how does this relationship work? There are several factors that lead to marijuana’s performance enhancing abilities.

Studies have shown that ingesting THC improves in-game performance by boosting focus and memory retention. This is surprising, since weed is usually known for having negative effects on cognition and memory. However, many gamers swear that cannabis is the only thing that helps them concentrate on gaming. 

In addition to improving focus, smoking weed can also help by relaxing your muscles and reducing anxiety and stress. Staying calm and level-headed while you play video games can dramatically boost your performance.

Gamers who play while high often report feeling less tense and more engaged with the storyline and strategies. If you want to improve your gaming skills instantly, cannabis could be the answer. With all of these incredible benefits, it’s no surprise that the ESL has banned marijuana use.

The Stoned Gamer League

Although the ESL has banned cannabis use from their league, there’s still hope for gamers who want to smoke weed and play competitively. The Stoned Gamer League combines cannabis with competitive gaming for a dank electronic sports experience. Anyone is allowed to play with this league as long as they’re high while they’re gaming.

The Stoned Gamer League, founded by Zeus Tipado, is hosted at the Stoned Gamer Arena in Downtown Los Angeles. If you want to play with this league, you first have to visit the Altitude Booth to consume some THC. Bongs and dab rigs are commonly set up in this area for gamers to use.

Playing remotely with this league online is allowed, but even still, gamers are required to submit videos of themselves smoking as “proof of elevation.” Whether you’re playing at the arena or from the comfort of home, smoking weed and getting high is essential to the Stoned Gamer League. 

Top 5 Video Games to Play While High

When you’re stoned, every video game becomes incredibly fun, but some titles do pair better with cannabis than others. What’s your favorite type of video game?

Whether you like racing, fighting, solving puzzles, or going on adventures, there’s a game out there for you. Find out which video games are the best for playing while stoned, and which cannabis strains pair the best with them.

Mario Party

This Nintendo game offers thrilling, wholesome fun and nonstop laughs. Playing Mario Party while stoned with your friends is the recipe for a perfect weekend.

There are 11 total installments in the Mario Party series that can be played across 8 different platforms. This party truly never stops! Ever since the first Mario Party was released in 1998 for the Nintendo 64, fans have fallen in love with the fantastical game. 

Since this game is so high energy, it’s recommended that you smoke a sativa strain beforehand. This will uplift your mood and help you appreciate the mesmerizing colors, sounds, and characters.

A nice buzz from some potent weed will improve your mini-game skills and lead you to victory. Some sweet cannabis strains to consider pairing with Mario Party include Candyland, Strawberry Banana, Mango, and Wedding Cake.

Rocket League

Rocket League is the perfect choice for a gamer who wants a unique, energetic experience. This game combines soccer, racing, and partying into one wild time. Rocket League is an award-winning game that’s just as much fun to play in single player mode as it is to play with friends.

This competitive game is commonly played in ESL tournaments and with the Stoned Gamer League. Almost anyone with a gaming console can play Rocket League, since it’s available for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac.

Hybrid or sativa strains pair nicely with Rocket League. This game is fast-paced, high energy, and incredibly competitive. Strains like Laughing Buddha and Dutch Hawaiian can help you focus and boost your ability to perform well under pressure. Since this game is so vibrant and uplifting, marijuana strains like Cotton Candy Kush or Animal Cookies would also be excellent options.

Katamari Damacy

Katamari Damacy is a uniquely bizarre, award-winning game that’s unlike anything else you’ve ever played before. You play as Prince of the Cosmos, and your mission is to roll up all of the objects and people on earth to turn into stars. This wacky, energetic game is a massive hit in both America and Japan. Fans love the combination of puzzle and racing elements along with a crazy plot and beautiful animations. 

Your friends will love this energetic, distinctly Japanese masterpiece. There are numerous installations in the Katamari Damacy series, and the games can be played across several platforms including PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Switch.

The surreal, vibrant qualities of this game make it the perfect pick for playing while high. Ingesting a sativa that produces an uplifted, creative high will make this incredible game even more fun. When playing Katamari Damacy, try a cannabis strain like Maui Wowie, Forbidden Fruit, or Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies.

Super Smash Bros

Super Smash Bros is the most fun you can have while fighting with your friends! This title is a Nintendo classic that’s been a fan-favorite since it was first released in 1999 for the N64. Choose your character and then epically battle your friends for victory.

The game is simple and straight-forward, but outrageously fun. With every new installment released, this game only gets more expansive and engaging. Although the original title only featured 12 playable characters, today’s version comes with over 70 base characters plus extra downloadable content. 

Super Smash Bros is perfect for a party or for a group smoke session. This game is easy to learn and get into, so anyone can pick up a controller and play. Enjoy an energizing hybrid or sativa strain beforehand to pump yourself up and boost your skills. White Widow, Pineapple Express, and Purple Trainwreck pair wonderfully with Super Smash Bros.

Rock Band

If you want to smoke weed and rock out with friends, this game is the ideal choice for you. Rock Band lets you live out your inner superstar fantasies and encourages you to jam out with the guitar, drums, or vocals.

This high energy game is perfect for parties or large groups, especially if you add a healthy amount of cannabis into the mix. Rock Band requires a lot of concentration, so being stoned may boost your performance and help you focus.  

Rock Band is packed full of awesome songs and trippy visuals to enjoy. Stoners love this game because it’s the perfect mixture of chilled out music and competitive fun. Rock Band pairs fantastically with all kinds of cannabis strains depending on how you like to play the game.

Try a powerful hybrid like White Fire OG if you’re going to be singing or playing the guitar. If you’re going to play the drums on Rock Band, a mellow indica like Granddaddy Purple will set the mood.

Get High and Enjoy the Game

There’s no better way to spend a relaxing weekend than by smoking weed and playing video games. Cannabis can make your gaming experience more fun and immersive, and it can also improve your skills.

Try getting high before your next gaming session and see if it makes a difference in your performance. With your favorite game and your favorite strain, you should be truly unbeatable!

They also had lunch with NASA astronaut and aerospace engineer Jeanette Epps.

Delta started the WING Flight program in 2015 as an effort to diversify a male-dominated industry and offer girls early exposure to careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) fields. This year’s anniversary makes over 600 female students who have taken to the skies with Delta through the program.

TEENAGER DESIGNS NEW APP TO COORDINATE CARE FOR SICK AND ELDERLY

Caring for a sick loved one can become as demanding as having a full-time job. When Massachusetts Teen Logan Wells’ grandmother Nannie was diagnosed with Dementia, his family quickly realized caring for her at home wouldn’t be an easy task. Logan and his parents were tasked with caring for their grandmother, providing meals, overseeing her medication schedule and coordinating visits from friends and home help aids.

Logan saw the stress this hectic care schedule was taking on his family and decided to develop an app that would coordinate all of the data and calendar information for him. His family got on board with the idea, helping with testing and feedback. They eventually hired software engineers to carry this project across the finish line.

Months later the CareZare app finally went live. It’s a free app built to allow users to log activities, track tasks (such as medication adherence) and the app also provides an up-to-date calendar with contacts and appointment information all in one place. CareZare is currently offered in the app stores for both iPhone and Android devices.

These anime quotes are full of lessons that you can apply to your own life in the real world.

If anime hasn’t been a part of your life before, you may not understand the excitement and devotion of its fans. While it’s often thought of by people that don’t understand it, or haven’t tried watching it as provocative, violent, and even a little taboo, there are many that see the creativity, inspiration, and motivation that it shares.

Anime Quotes to Motivate

The art, fantasy, designs, colors, and costumes tap into our too often repressed imagination. It awakens something within that motivates and inspires us for life. These 50 anime quotes paint a beautiful picture of how an often overlooked work of art does just that.

Anime quotes to see the benefit that it has on creativity and imagination

1.) “When it comes to anime, there are endless possibilities. A character can have superhuman powers or shape-shift or have any combination of features. There are no limits with anime. The scenes are not restricted to what can realistically be filmed on a set with physical people, which means a show could have ghosts, pirates, samurais, or space cowboys. Anything could happen. And it will look beautiful in the process. It might even inspire you to start drawing yourself.” – January Nelson

2.) “Anime characters have some of the craziest, wildest designs you’ll ever see in the entertainment world. Some designs defy physics, others defy reality itself. And others are so breath-taking it’ll blow you away. That’s why anime is so compelling and fun to watch.” – Theo J Ellis

3.) “A lot of anime series and movies are visually stunning. Studio Ghibli films such as Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke are great examples of amazing quality animation and character designs with background artwork that could be framed and hung in an art gallery.” – Brad Stephenson

4.) “Many anime shows have distinctive art styles that incorporate colors in beautiful and vibrant ways. Being exposed to all of these colors regularly can positively impact your mood, or maybe even help you pay attention to the vibrant colors around you in your daily life.” – Kayla Matthews

5.) “Anime nerds are used to jumping into highly fictionalized shows and use their imaginations much more regularly than your average person. As a result, they’re generally much more creative and open minded than others.” – Kayla Matthews

6.) “Anime are filled with characters with heroic qualities that we, as humans, should look up to. These characters possess the nearly inhuman qualities of never giving up, always chasing your dream, protecting what you care for, giving your all, and helping others. We can respect and admire these characters for what they try to accomplish and it gives us inspiration to take what they are doing and to add that to our lives. These characters motivate us to become better people.” – Quazar

7.) “The point being, creativity is where it starts. Creativity is what made the first anime – which used knock-off, Disney inspired drawing techniques – gripping enough to viewers to catch on.” – J Sensei

8.) “Through picturesque fantasy lands, superhuman feats, and general wow-factor shenanigans, drawing out a sense of childlike wonder is where anime really thrives. It’s where you should thrive, too – as, when all the other features are removed, that genuine wow-factor is also found in just about every successful creative campaign.” – Make it Pop

9.) “It is argued that anime supports an array of transcultural creative practices that span across borders, hybridize content and even force the creation of new types of text and distribution.”  – Rayna Denison

10.) “As seen throughout animation history, one of the main reason why anime films, shows and anime art in general, is able to succeed would be because the Japanese artist made full use of their creative gift to reach out to people. The Japanese knew that anime art does not necessarily need to be shown solely to children, but to everyone as well. With the use of anime art, along with complex and diverse storylines that are akin to human nature, people all over the world took to anime films and shows.” – Jon Mumford

Inspirational anime quotes
