First I would like to introduce myself briefly. My name is Alan Michael May and I am the son of Randy May and Kris May. I have four beautiful children and a beautiful and loving wife. My childrens names and ages are (starting from oldest to youngest) Dawson Chitwood – 10, Alan May II (refered to as A.J.) – 7, Easton May – 3, Khloe May – 22 months. My wife’s name is Sebrina Joy Chitwood (May) and she is 28.
I will be taking you on a detailed journey into my life! I will start with my place of birth and briefly elaborate along the way on each of the points in my young life that I feel are most impactful on my current life situation. Next , I will take you on a rollercoaster ride through my teen years and into my young adulthood, high’s and low’s. I will close by taking you on a journey, as I find out that I am having my first child and making a big move that will impact the rest of my life, as I know it.
Let’s begin with the year I was born. I was born in 1981 on December 23rd. My Mother Kris, and my Father Randy were only 18 years young. I was born at Whuestoff Hospital in Rockledge, FL. Rockledge is a proud little city that is about 20 minutes inland from Cocoa Beach. My mom has always had the warm memory of bringing me home from the hospital on Christmas Eve dressed in a red one piece and wrapped in a Christmas stocking. I don’t know what it is about that story but I love to hear my mom talk about it. I guess that’s part of the reason why I have always loved Christmas and the Holiday Season. We will now jump forward to my 6th Christmas when I received my first ever bicycle from Santa Clause. Yes it was the first one ever. It was everything I ever wanted and now it was mine. I can remember it clearly, it was red and blue and had the Smurf’s all over it. I rode that thing up and down our driveway and sidewalk and I rode it…...

...any differences between how CMOs and marketing practitioners understand their opportunities and challenges. Lastly, the survey evaluated whether a high level of financial performance suggested greater adoption of marketing technology and more sophisticated management of the customer experience. For this evaluation, we asked respondents to self-identify their level of financial performance relative to their industry peers and then applied their responses to a select group of questions. When the results came in, three important trends became clear. In order to meet the challenges posed by new technologies and maximize the success of their organizations, marketers must expand their role in leading the customer experience, remove silos and integrate across channels, and embrace a greater partnership with IT. Leading the customer experience In business, marketers are uniquely positioned to gain an intimate understanding of how customers think. Marketers 3 IBM’s State of Marketing Survey 2012 need to be able to look at customer behavior, find out what customers want, and then deliver targeted messages and offers to the customers. With all the insight that they already have into the customer experience, it would make perfect sense for marketers to play an important part in driving the customer experience. The reality is that many high-performing organizations already recognize the fact that marketing can, and should, take a more active role in leading the customer......

...Writer’s Self-Portrait I have a dream that I can travel around the world, and take picture from every place I have been, and share with my family and friends to encourage them to do what they dream. And I know my mother also likes to travel, but sadly, she always thinks taking good care of family is her only responsibility, she cannot leave home. I always tell her, “ Your kids are grown up. Don’t worry too much about us. Just go anywhere you want to go.” But she just cannot. So now, I am here. I took a lot of pictures and sent them to my mother, then told her about where I live and how it looks like here. I hope I can be a good writer or storyteller, when people read or listen to my story, they can feel they are here with me. Especially my mom, I wish I can use words with pictures to let her sees what I have seen. I was thinking to write a letter for my father before I came here, but I failed it, I cannot written up what I was thinking. My father is a traditional Chinese father, his face is always looks like serious, and he doesn’t talk too much, also sometimes I don’t really talk to him, it is because I can feel that he always thinks I am too childish and I don’t like that feeling. The night makes me so impressive. We were talked for few hours in the night of Taiwan Father’s Day which is on October 8th. We were talking about our past, our present, my future, our religion, my career and future goals. I don’t remember we had talked so long like this time. I talked to him......

...behavior is based on a biological predisposition. This means inappropriate behavior is based on a biological dysfunction. Therefore, all drug abuse cannot be avoided, and some people are born with a propensity to abuse chemicals. With that as a basis, it’s only logical that we would look at substance use disorders (SUD) as treatable only through counselors and other mental health physicians and not treatable as a disease. Another theory considers alcoholism to be a disease and therefore treatable like other diseases. There have been studies that people are genetically predisposed to become alcoholics. Some suggest that certain people are predisposed to certain outcomes based on life behavior. Others say that it all boils down to how one person metabolizes alcohol compared to another person. Only future research will provide an answer and, hopefully, a cure. E.M. Jellinek was one of the earliest and most recognized authorities on alcoholism during his era. His work on alcoholism was the first of its kind to establish stages of alcohol dependency. Jellinek proscribed the three stages of alcoholism, which are separate and distinguished by drinking styles: Pre-alcoholic drinkers drink to relieve workday or life stresses. Prodromal drinkers may have blackouts or memory losses. Crucial drinkers distinguish themselves with a total lack of self-esteem and control. It is not uncommon to see people in these stages in the daily bar environment. Many of us have gone to a......

...Self-esteem, according to Introduction to Psychology by Dennis Coon, is defined as regarding oneself as a worthwhile person or a positive evaluation of oneself1. This study focuses on the examination of African American adolescent self-esteem based on the independent variables of parental marital status, income, and family structure. Is it possible that these variables could affect a confidence that is supposed to come from oneself? According to Mandara and Murray, these variables greatly affect the self-esteem in African American boys and girls in different but significant ways.      It was important for me to choose an article that I could relate with and also that interested me. I found this article to have both these qualities and also be the most accurate with several tables and outside references to make it as comprehensive as it could be. I found the material easy to read and understand as well. It also stood out because it was narrowly focused on a specific topic with specific factors. I found other articles that were so broad, I could hardly imagine them having accurate results.  Once I chose this topic, the articles available to me were few and far between, which I feel is too bad because it is an important topic and before we can begin helping those adolescents who are lacking self-esteem, we must first find out where the problem originates. Having grown up in a single parent, middle class income family and being the oldest of two children, I feel that I can now......

...The Self Judith James University of Phoenix Social Psychology/PSYCH 555 Glorivy Arce April 10, 2014 The Self “Identity is part of drama to me. Who am I, why am I behaving this way, and am I aware of it?”- American writer, Matthew Weiner (Brainy Quotes, n.d.). Most people are like Weiner, we ask ourselves “Who am I?” and our reply will usually be a description of our outside self, our personality traits, and the role we have in life. “The term self-concept is a general term used to refer to how someone thinks about or perceives themselves” (McLeod, 2008, para. 1). However, there is more to the concept of self, and how an individual develops the concept of self. Included in the aspect of self is the relationship between the person and his or her emotions, which affect a person’s self-esteem. How one presents themselves to others involves the relationship between the self and his or her behavior; a certain degree of a person’s self-presentation will also affect one’s concept of self. “A conceptual definition of the self includes the body, the inner self, the interpersonal self, and the collective self” (Fiske, 2010, p. 185). While the concept of self develops from the time of birth, it is a slow process simply because as a child one is concerned about how he or she fits into the world around them. A child will develop self through learning what he or she likes, or does not like; such as enjoying being outside, or preferring to be naked instead of......

...and marriage, that “same-sex relationships are static, self-focused, and center almost exclusively on what the relationship delivers for the two partners, not what it represents to the supportive families or to society”. Obviously, Patterson’s argument focuses only on the union of gay couples where he points out that “…homosexuality is mostly about men, who are sexually wrapped up in themselves, directing their passions toward other men who are also wrapped up in themselves.” Girgis, George, & Anderson (2012) maintain this claim in their book entitled, “What is Marriage?” when they begin with the statement: “What we have come to call the gay marriage debate is not directly about homosexuality, but about marriage.” They also stress that marriage is far broader than other relationships. “…Because our bodies are truly aspects of us as persons, any union of two people that did not involve organic bodily union would not be comprehensive.” In other words, marriage is a spiritual union by vows, then consummated through sexual intercourse, thus this element is based on the notion of procreation and childrearing in fulfilling their vows. In addition, Patterson clearly illustrates his claim how homosexual relationships fall short of common good by citing factual evidence on the tragedy of the celebrated Episcopal bishop, Eugene Robinson, “Robinson had to violate his marriage vows, divorce his wife, and desert his children-all so that he could fool around with his boyfriend.” ......

...The Self-Driving CarIs a self-driving car a necessity or just a cool toy? Instead of having to spend long hours driving on a road trip or a busy street, a person can just sit back and relax while the car does all the work. If a person gets in the car and attempts to drive, the self-driving car can make them take a breath analyzing test and detect their levels of alcohol are too high to be driving. The car can take control of the wheel and get them home safely without causing any harm to the person or anyone else on the road. Therefore, a self-driving car can be both a cool accessory but also a great thing to have in order to prevent many accidents from occurring. Everyone has heard the many tragic stories about a young teen, or even a family, being inside the car and getting hit by a drunk driver or being the one to hit someone else. A lot of the times these accidents lead to injuries, and sometimes even death. Most people believe that accidents will not occur to them because they live close by and they see themselves as not being drunk. Usually though, a drunk person does not realize how drunk they actually are and do not realize all the injuries that can occur. With a self-driving car, it can detect a person's alcohol leveland drive for them. It could save thousands of lives every day around the world with this type of...

...a person who is self-aware is one who has a deep understanding of his emotions, strengths, weaknesses, needs, and drives. Atwater & Yammarino (1992) states that self-awareness stems from the ability of combining the assessment of the evaluation of the self by others together with one’s self-evaluation. In another words, self-perception as compared to what is perceived by others. On the other hand, Mayor & Salovey (1995) suggest that self-awareness is to be conscious of one’s mood and thoughts about that mood. Self-awareness helps in elevating effectiveness, it roots and fosters the virtue of leadership. All leadership begins with self-leadership and self-leadership begins with knowing oneself. By definition, management is one individual achieving results through others. As suggested by Goleman (2011), self-aware people are self-confident people with a strong understanding of what they are capable of and what they are not. Self-awareness generates the kind of confidence to take the required action when new opportunities are presented. With self-awareness, we become more understanding of others and it is this understanding that leads to effective communication. Being self-aware requires reflection by oneself or with others, in both good and bad times. A better self-understanding will allow one to have more control and intuitive decision-making capability, have the flexibility and ability to effectively meet and handle challenges, have better communication and......

Would You Agree That All Human Actions Are Ultimately Motivated by Self-Interest?

...Assignment 3 – Draft Essay Would you agree that all human actions are ultimately motivated by self-interest? Provide reasons for your agreement/disagreement. Although few would use the word “selfish”, a word of negative connotation that implies actions done harm the interests of others for the benefit of the doer, to describe the whole human race, some believe all rational human actions are ultimately motivated by “self-interest”, a more neutral word that implies actions done are motivated by the doer’s desire, but may or may not cause harm to others. Others, however, argue that some acts such as altruism, or otherwise called “selfless actions”, serve as evidence that counters the view. This essay will argue that all human actions are ultimately motivated by self-interest. By examining human actions as either (1) acts for self, (2) altruistic acts that also benefit the doer or (3) altruistic acts that do not, it will argue that all of the above actions are ultimately initiated by self-interest. ["apparent fact" sounds like an oxymoron; "clear fact" is better] It is widely accepted that many human actions are done to benefit the doer. Every day, people work for food and shelter. They entertain themselves with occasional trips to theme parks or the cinema. In desperate circumstances, some may even commit theft or murder. All these are actions intended to be self-beneficial. It is not necessarily evil to be self-interested. Any rational person would be motivated......

...I believe that I am using self-fulfilling prophecies by allowing underclassmen the ability to make more mistakes and learn at a much slower pace than my seniors who are more experienced. Knowing that certain players are coming in with little or know experience at all at the college level I make the assumption that they all will learn at a much slower pace than the upperclassmen and that’s not the case in every instance. When an experienced player makes a mistake that they shouldn’t I am much quicker to react in a not so positive manner because I feel as if they should no better. An underclassman can make that same mistake and instead of reacting quickly to discipline them I give them more feedback and hands on instruction so that future errors can be minimized. Taking this approach can have an impact on a player being successful because playing time will be given to those players that I feel have the best grasp of what I won’t them to run and typically this will be the more experienced players and those that are inexperienced will have to wait for their chance to prove that they can execute as well as if not better than those who are upperclassman.

All Human Actions Are Ultimately Motivated by Self-Interest

...All human actions are ultimately motivated by self-interest Human actions and motifs in behinds are the most interested issue in psychological study. ‘Human actions’ are behaviors done by people which typically with an aim, meaning and involve a choice. On a rational basis, one makes decisions to maximize self-interest and minimize own loss. (Pütz, 1992) Within this context, ‘Self-interest’ means the consideration of advantage, which refer to both the material and psychological one, for oneself when they are making a decision. This essay will argue that humans act with respect to the account of their self-interest, which is a collective sum of different subjective values, regardless of whether it is conscious or not at the instance. Such argument will be declared by analyzing two distinctive kinds of actions, relationship-related action and charity action, in terms of their ultimate causality with self-interest. One best example of action demonstrating self-Interest motivation is parental love, particularly in Chinese culture. Subjectively, one family members and friends are seen as part of their own property. Protecting and acting along the self-interest of their beloved one is actually a guarding of one own self-interest. Nowadays in Hong Kong society, ‘helicopter parents’ is a popular phenomenon. Helicopter parents are those who over-protect, over-control and over-perfect their children by not requiring the children to take care of themselves while having extremely......

...The Self- Actualization higher order need of Maslow’s Theory involves the need to fulfill oneself, to grow and use one’s abilities to the fullest and most creative extent. In the case of RUDACON’s employees, the needs to fulfill oneself and to grow their skills were not satisfied in their work environment, since the employees wanted to be more productive and to accomplish their goals, however the work overload problem affected their performance, consequently they felt demotivated to push themselves harder to overcome the problem. The second Maslow’s high order need “Esteem”, involves the need of prestige, respect and recognition. RUDACON employees did not feel their work was recognized by the managers and by the supervisor, as result of these feelings, they were demotivated and frustrated with their jobs. It is important that both Maslow’s higher order needs must be fulfilled with the help of managers and executives in order to solve RUDACON’s motivational problem, since this is the first step to help the employees improve their performance and be more productive. Two factors that increased the employees overload problem were the lack of response and communication from the managers. In order to help managers to overcome the communication problem it is important to analyze the Downward communication, According to the textbook “follows the chain of command from top to bottom” and it helps to lower-level personal to be actualize of what thing the higher level is doing,......

...The Self Keepa Secret PSY/400 February 6, 2011 Ingrid Lewis The Self Philosophers and Psychologists have been debating and pondering the question of what exactly constitutes the self for many years. Considering that there are certain concepts and aspects that makes up what psychologists refer to as “the self” in the social world is definitely worth taking a look at since defining what exactly it is can help us understand our roles in society and move us a little closer to understanding our motivations, desires, and why we do the things we do. In this essay we will examine the concept of self in the social world and discuss how I apply the self to my own life. In addition we will also examine the roles of self concept, self-esteem and self efficacy, and how these concepts build a framework for my conception of self. I will also describe two social experiences that affected my personal development in an effort to help the reader understand why I am who I am today. Self in the Social world The concept of the self cannot be found in any book or dictionary. It is not something any one person can concretely define. It cannot be explained in third person because the self is an individual topic. I can’t decide for another person what the definition of self is for them, especially as it relates to their experiences in the social world. I can only decide what self is and how it manifests itself in my own life based on my own experiences, thoughts, feelings and...
