    freely and the sunset blankets the ocean while some would be perfectly comfortable with acing a narrative while slumping on the living room couch eating a tub of ice cream and have earphones blaring alternative rock tunes onto their eardrums Either way I guess as a writer we all need to find our own way of getting inspired to capture that moment where we could fully express the emotions we want out pieces to imbibe In the end making our readers and fans feel what we feel and understand what we want them to should be the inspiration altogether to find that one spark that would ignite the masterpiece all of us are destined to write at one point or another Keep writing and keep searching for that one true inspiration You ll never know You just might bump into it real soon CLIMBING TO THE TOP July 15 2011 at 7 35 am Writers Log Posted by Janus Education Team Add Your Comments The search for the region s best young authors and digital storytellers is on We ve received calls from everywhere emails from as far as Indonesia and Cambodia and believe us when we say we are both thrilled and overwhelmed with the amount of response we are receiving for the Young Author Awards and the DigiTales Awards And then it got me thinking People scramble over who gets to be the best and there really isn t anything wrong about trying to achieve all your goals But some people go over the top and find themselves starting to become too obsessed with reaching for their stars that they forget that winning isn t everything It s the journey that is more important I remember when I was in primary school Competition in class was so cutthroat that people begged teachers for extra school work as if there wasn t enough to do in school There wasn t anything wrong with the competition except that we became so engrossed with being on top that we forgot the lessons that we should have been learning as we climbed to the top life lessons that could have helped many of us become better citizens of the world Here are a few of the things I learned during my journey as a student who was struggling to climb to the top 1 A smile makes a difference People take it for granted and sometimes even think it s eerie to find people who smile back but a smile does make a difference when you climb up to reach your goals Maintaining a healthy happy outlook has both physical and mental benefits Plus did you know that it takes lesser effort for facial muscles to smile than to frown So why strain yourself with a glum face right 2 A sincere thank you means more than just three words Some people are starting to forget the virtue of gratitude If you want to climb up to the top without gathering too
