Truly, a great many human beings erroneously believe that, in order to achieve anything worthwhile, meaningful, of success and of positive-victory, including traits, aspects, actions and expressions of love, peace, harmony, goodness, kindness, modesty, justice, <living and helping others to live>, suddenly denotes that the human being must become an all <yes-man>, or a complete <all-positive>, needing to sing songs and dances of endless positivity and <good times>, saying <yes> to every request from friends, acquaintances, co-workers, colleagues, their self-help guru overlords, bosses, family, lovers and so forth, so that these feeble-minded <yes-man> human beings find acceptance from their peers or gain political influences or possible power schemes as they rise higher in their corporate ladders.
Modern day human beings (as of 2020) have suffered terribly in language deterioration, greatly thanks to mass propaganda, careless media influences and of course, purposeful dumbing down of the mass-consciousness to turn human beings into nothing more than puppets for belief-based, religious-based, political and populist machinations that amount to keeping human beings independently-thoughtless, irresponsible and overly dependent on these <powers that be>. And that is exactly the way it was designed - to keep the mass majority of terrestrial humanity stupid, confused, mollycoddled, victimized (which also includes aggressive victims, not just crybaby ones, as @Severus Zohar pointed out in #psychology).
When such human beings are exposed even to an inkling of light (truth) in regards to their self-capabilities and self-power, then these human beings are simply unable to comprehend, let alone process or utilize such knowledge because they've been drummed into believing they have no power, and that it all comes from the government, father-god, a prophet, a teacher, a tin god, the police force, the political party or ideology they dumbly idolize, the military, secret services and intelligences, and so on and so forth. Time and time again, human beings are stripped of their basic Creational-right as a Wesen (entity, being) of Creation to wield their own power and indeed, be the smith of their destiny.
Precisely because of this reason is why an absolute <no> and in no wise a <sarcastic no>, must be enforced and used. The human being must learn to develop boundaries, limitations, moderation, modesty, and learn when is necessary to <switch off>, when is it necessary to talk and when it is necessary to keep silent or when it is necessary to perform work and exercise or when it's necessary to rest and recover. Many-a-earth-human-beings, especially after discovering #true-reality-teachings, foolishly believe that everything is suddenly fixed; that somehow, everyone else will get it - that they will simply say <yes>, and that he/she must go out and <tell it over the mountain> like a <yes-man>, implementing their formerly-religious and belief based thinking and lack of positive-negative-harmonization in order to convert other human beings due to their obvious lack of fundamental understanding of #true-reality-teaching, respectively - the spiritual teaching, and, or, material as a whole, that is of the truth, of the spirit, of the life, of the <real reality> and the <absolute truth>.
However, a word must be mentioned in regards to this sub-culture of sarcasm because on one hand it can be considered humorous to a certain degree, on another hand, it is completely detrimental to proper communication and reception of information. It is often cowardly used to passively mask problems, issues, deep, psychological and psychical tumors etc. which only bubble to the surface now and then or erupt in an absolute explosion. Sarcasm is a perfect tool of propaganda to distort the true meaning of words and the value of them, but it must also be said that while this is negative, positive can always be formed from negative, and in the case with <sarcasm culture> which is no exception to this rule, it can be said that this can increase the abstract, intuitive, communicative and linguistical intelligence of the human being, but only if he/she has learned to identify the true meaning of what is being relayed to them passed the surface-level expressions which includes: the literal words being said, the facial expressions and so on. In this case, one will need to be able to identify the true intention and the why behind the words and what is being said, what isn't being said etc.
Nevertheless, this confusion and language deterioration causes miscommunication and misunderstanding even amongst peoples speaking the same tongue. Now this is an important factor to the topic at hand because many people haven't a clue how to properly say <no> and how to properly say <yes>. These words, along with many others, have been flipped in their meaning, contextualization and usage, and it has brought nothing but confusion and false-assumptions, wrong linguistic structures and the like. However, the idea of <wrong linguistic structure> is only a half-relativity, because on one hand, language should be paid heed to from its roots, why it has existed, where it came from, where it descended etc., but on the other hand, it cannot be held to so tightly as the pinnacle of linguistic and communicative utter perfection because all languages on earth, German included, have their flaws and the only way forward is for earth to develop a earthling-universal language that takes the best from each major and contributing language and strip away its unnecessary negatives.
So it must be said that language cannot stay the same. It must constantly be revised, upgraded and improved, especially as our means of mass consciousness development evolves. Of course diminishing returns exists as to how far a language can be improved, but nonetheless, nothing on earth is absolutely perfect, especially in their current states, and indeed, are all are subject to revisions and gradual improvements. So, now that the previously mentioned factors of language has been addressed, it is not necessary to also point out the follies of stupid, warped, esoteric, lack of objective-based beliefs, concepts, philosophies, modes and behaviors of living, lifestyles and the like.
Many of these dumb, <life is meaningless>, <it's all about the journey>, stupid concepts from hedonistic, lazy, bubble-deluded-living, hippy-alternative-hipsters, and other mindless human beings who drift about floating through life like a leaf in the wind, never able to take control, foolishly believe that having any sort of thought, ambition, vision, clarity of consciousness, knowledge, <knowing the path>, <knowing the roadmap>, moving forward, objectivity etc. is somehow bad, inhuman, impossible and egotistical. These stupid, careless human beings who just love to <get lost in the forest> believe that there should be no goals in life and nothing to aim toward - so they also spread these confusing philosophies to others, deluding them, tricking them and causing great psychical turmoil.
These are the same types of foolish human beings who believe that other human beings who have vision, who are clear in the consciousness, who <have a path forward>, are somehow over-ambitious, not <living> and so forth, and while it is indeed true that such extremities do exist, especially with the <hustler culture> standards, the case in regards to this particular context points directly to the facts regarding a balanced, neutral-positive, progressive, strong, upright, victorious human being who is indeed <living> through <evolving>, and <evolving> can only come through <doing>, not just being fascinated by Creation or Creational-love, the fauna and the flora, but actually applying this wonder to bring about progress.
This is why many <specialists> including CEOs of major corporations, professional game players, top tier artists, actors, movie producers, animators, musicians, political activists, so-called <spiritualism> activists, self-help gurus, and so on and so forth, are indeed quite good at the specific <specialties> they perform, but on the other hand, they are complete and utter psychopaths with a tumorous psychical world that causes enormous damage from the work they do or the productions they create through the cracks and crevasses from their poor psychical conditions and lacking forms of overall-health and balance.
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” as Robert Anson Heinlein coined. This is indeed very accurate, though not necessarily in complete literalism and is of course, construed based on the context, circumstance and situation it is delivered. In this context, <polymaths>, can also be brought forth and great men and women in history who have made major fundamental changes in mankind have always had <polymathic> traits.
But these <polymathic> traits should not be confused for the stupid so-called <wisdom quote> of <don't put your eggs in one basket>, because it is absolutely necessary that the human being should not spread or divide themselves so thin that he/she can no longer find focus on anything. Actually this is precisely why the act of being unable to say <no>, being unable to set boundaries and limitations acts similarly to strangling the human being, forcing them to pop sooner or later, or simply be unable to take on the stupendous multitude of tasks, including appealing to friendships and acquaintances, coworkers, peers, bosses and the like for acceptance.
Now of course a human being can perform multiple duties and tasks as it was mentioned with <polymathic> traits (IE: Charles Pierce as @RSFO brought forth), but it must be mentioned that multiple tasks, multiple duties and so forth, must have a unifying thread that ties them altogether. So an aphorism to the male and female human beings is to be created here: both male and female are their own independent wesen (being, entity) with differences in their biological makeup, including methods of brain function, and yet both male and female are <one>, respectively - they are of the same human species.
This universal-natural-logic must also be applied to multiple tasks, multiple duties and the like - they must all tie into one and serve one ultimate purpose albeit through varying expressions, executions, actions and so forth. But in order to establish such possibilities of work and performance, it is thus necessary that the human being learns his/her limits. Truly, many human beings overestimate themselves and their capabilities and while this is not to <knock down> any hopeful, aspiring human being, it is to say that in order for the human being to truly accomplish conceivable and imaginative goals and dreams as reality, then it is necessary that he/she learns that he/she cannot do it all.
For example, if a human being wants to become a writer, then he/she must devote his/her time to reading and writing, and not to a completely unrelated field such as being in gas or oil. Though it must be said for accurate comparison and respect to both sides of the coin, a writer could've worked in the oil or gas fields and use that experience to write - but again, these threads tie into <one> as the example with male and female as <one> human species was used above. So, to prevent digression, it is thus necessary to point the reader's attention to the fact that specific paths, specific visions or specific dreams, and the fulfillment of these thoughts and wishes as true real life requires the human being give up the unnecessary bits that does not help him/her on the way there, even if these <bits> have become comfort zones or coping mechanisms. (See: #PSILive w/ Jedi Reach 110: Coping Mechanisms & Their Inevitable Expiration (Death) on the PSI Youtube Channel)
Of course mistakes will naturally be made which is why the human being should not sit overthinking and overcomplicating after completion of this article, and also, this is why it is absolutely necessary to have courage that, even if mistakes are to be made, the human being, through affirmed might of thought, knows that he/she will indeed find the <right way>, learn, improve, refine, never give up and continue onward toward fulfilling the desired goal, dream or the like. It is impossible for the human being, even <polymathic> human beings, to extend themselves so far in multiple directions and somehow wish to accomplish anything, because the further the excessive-pull in multiple directions; whether it is for people-pleasing, self-over-estimation, scheming, <sucking up> etc., then the human being will find themselves deeply confused, frustrated and unable to find any form of completion, and if any completion is to happen, then it is half-arsed, incomplete and expressive of the inner frustrations in a negative-wise.
The human being thus must strictly and solidly learn to set absolutely uncompromisable, non-negotiable, hard-limits that can never and never be bargained with. Now, there is a difference with <hard-limits> versus stubbornness and ignorance, because <hard-limits> can only come from experience and utilizing what the human being has gone through in a knowledgeable, correct, upright, wise, logical method that is protective of the self and the self's interest in a way that reflects the necessity of <live and help live>, and not <live and let die> or <live and let live>, the latter of which is used often but is an apathetic gesture. As Jmmanuel said, "Let your yes be yes and let your no be no."
It is only through setting these necessary <hard-limits>, boundaries and <absolute-no> can the human being develop self-respect, self-discipline and self-trust. Truly, the human being who cannot say <no> to anything is a human being who cannot trust themselves due to a variety of reasons, including but not limited to - possible childhood traumas, poor upbringings, poor self-worth etc. Truly, the human being must learn to develop these strict limits because it is a matter of self-respect, and even for the self-over-estimators, it is also in their interest, if they too wish to climb to higher escalations of success, victory and evolution, then he/she must learn his/her limits and respect them, because limits are not there to take away from the human being's happiness, joy, peace, harmony, love, success, well-being, security, progress and evolution. On the contrary, limitations exist to protect the human being and assure his/her path forward is guaranteed to the best relatively-possible degree.
