A. The Power of Positive Thinking
A recently interview with Steve Weatherford, the former NFL Super Bowl champion who was one of the best punters in the world, about his secrets to success.
“Visualize your day going perfect in detail. Commit to the habit for 30 days and your life will change.”
Steve’s key life hack is positive self-talk. He recommends that you “talk yourself through every day. In the morning say, ‘Today is going to be a great day and this is why’.… Visualize your day going perfect in detail. Commit to the habit for 30 days and your life will change.”
Win or Learn
Every mistake that you make, every failure that you have, Steve’s mindset is this: “I am going to win or I am going to learn. I don’t think about failing, I just think about opportunities to grow. You are never going to lose… you are going to win or you are going to learn. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from your greatness.”

B. 8 Ways to Unleash Your Curiosity
"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curios."Albert Einstein.
A child learns to point around age 1. He is already finding ways to ask questions before he has the words. As he gets older, he realizes that he will be rewarded not for trying, but for having the right answers. Preferably all of them and especially the ones that are on the test. His future depends on it.
Curiosity stems from caring to know what you don’t know. There are three types of curiosity.
- Deversive curiosity is our hunger for novelty; this is what makes us click on cat videos and keeps us scrolling through Facebook feeds.
- Empathetic curiosity is the drive to understand another person by trying to see the world as they do.
- Epistemic curiosity is our deeper, more directed quest for understanding that prompts us to explore, ask questions and make connections.
It’s amazing what you can discern by looking at things that people don’t usually pay attention to. Noticing what others don’t see can yield some fascinating results. Use the exercises below to help you develop your curiosity.
1. Observe with intention.
2. Notice frustrations.
3. Ask, how would i fix it?

I. December Traditional Christmas Parties
Christmas parties called "Posadas" are traditions in Mexico during the Christmas season. For 9 days from December 16th to December 24th, We remember the birth of Jesus. Each of the nine days has a different meaning: humility, strength, detachment, charity, trust, justice, purity, joy and generosity.
In the locality, the Posadas are celebrated from 9 days before Christmas. It is a Catholic tradition, so people pray and sing Christmas carols every day. The landlords offer punch, canes, oranges or tangerines and a bag with sweets and peanuts called collation, without missing the piñatas full of sweets.
The piñata is made with a clay pot giving it the shape of a star with seven peaks, which represent the seven deadly sins and is covered with brightly colored paper, and filled with sweets and fruit, once the piñata represents to the devil. To break it first it hangs, they covers the children eyes with a blind fold, since this represents faith, which allows us to continue without need to see, the wooden stick with which it is stuck represents God, who gives the strength to overcome the temptations.
Once the piñata is broken, the sweets and fruit that it contained fall, which represents the love of God, since by destroying evil God's blessings are obtained. Finally, at the end of the posada, "aguinaldos" (bonus) are distributed, which are small bags with sweets, fruit and snacks.
At present, it has become popular to call a "Posada" to any non-religious festival held between December 16th and 24th.
