Thumoslang as Your Ultimate New Year’s Resolution

The Only New Year’s Resolution You Need for the Rest of Your Life

[1] A resolution simply means a strong will. Many resolutions for the New Year eventually fail to work for their users because the will is, but the way is not declared. What is normally stated is the most desirable outcome. What is most often missing, is our conviction, our shared interpretation thereof, and an easy way for all around us to see our advancement towards the wanted outcome but frequently enough to make long-lasting discipline feasible. If a resolution could meet such requirements and be adopted throughout the ages, it would be the ultimate, the best-ever New Year’s resolution. What could it be? Thumoslang is the answer.

[2] The above conclusion could be neither reached nor expressed until Jairson Ascencao, in a long conversation with Nickantony Quach, was trying to pinpoint the exact reason why he often easily gave up on the use of a newly acquired self-help skill. The attempt is captured by the video, Thumoslang Curriculum Design Session, which is Episode 3 in Season 3 of the YouTube series NDBaker93. It’s hard for you to have a personal conviction in the resolution if you did not identify with it too much, in other words, see a strong connection between it and your life. As discovered by Jairson at 14 minutes and 30 seconds into the video, this is true especially when the resolution requires a high effort but it produces a low return on investment.

[3] People around you would have a hard time giving you effective encouragement if they did not interpret your conviction the same way as you did. It’s difficult to have shared interpretation while neither the resolution nor the conviction is expressed using an easy-to-understand nomenclature. This is especially true when the resolution has something to do with relationships. Until the 2017 book, Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration, was published, a nomenclature for social life such as Thumoslang did not exist.

[4] You may not have heard of Jairson Ascencao. No one, not even he, knew of what he truly wants to become until he was filmed for the video, Quickly Sharpen the Blade of Your Mind, which is Episode 21 of the YouTube series Thumoslang102. It will be released on 4/21/2020 but you must not wait that long to view its content. A large portion of it is available in the video, What You Truly Want to Become, which is Episode 24 in Season 1 of NDBaker93. In this video, Norman D. Baker reacts to Jairson’s ideals.

[5] Although he is only halfway between his voting age and his legal drinking age while he is still struggling for life in his hometown, Jairson already held a steadfast conviction that “you as an individual are far more powerful than what you’ve been led to believe.” While his teenage years are still fresh on his mind, he already knows what he truly wants to become: the messenger who spreads the above idea.

[6] Check this scenario out.

“What’s your New Year’s Resolution?” You will be asked.

“Thumoslang,” you would answer.

“What’s that?” you would, again, be asked.

“It’s,” you would sound impressive, “the nomenclature for social life.”

“Huh?” You should not be surprised to get that in return.

[7] To become far more powerful than you’ve been led to believe, bring more good things to the life of others. To do so, tell them the following. The good things in their life are derived from their relationships. That’s why we all should become an expert in human relationships. To become an expert in any field, you must first learn of its nomenclature. Thumoslang is the nomenclature for use in social life to achieve more consequential relationships with much less effort. To have better things in life, let Thumoslang turn you into a master of relationships and make you far more powerful than you’ve been led to believe.

[8] The first step in becoming far more powerful is to adopt Thumoslang as your resolution for the New Year and make it the nomenclature for your social life. Now is the time to find out what it is and how it works. To get started, watch the video, NDBaker93 Season 1 Trailer 2. At 2 minutes and 22 seconds into the video, you can hear Jairson making the following statement.

As Norm and I (Jairson) grow and change together, we’re also experimenting with a new way to better connect with the people around us. The series NDBaker93 is a story for you. It is for you because, as you see my work to change and reorganize my business of the self, hopefully, you too will realize how you can become far more powerful than you’ve been led to believe.

[9] To be sure, the mission of NDBaker93 is to help make you more powerful than you’ve been led to believe, by showing you, over time, how to take on Thumoslang.

[10] The first tangible proof of Thumoslang power is captured by the YouTube series Thumoslang101. The series has only six videos. The first five have already been released on Ri4CTV. Together, they cover the same three-hour conversation between Ifeanyi Onyekaba and Nickantony Quach, Creator of Thumoslang. This may one day be considered as the conversation that changes the world.

[11] The second tangible proof of Thumoslang power is captured by the YouTube series Thumoslang102. Its 21 videos show how Jairson reacted to Thumoslang101 as he watched the original series. He was amazed to see how Thumoslang was able to sharpen the blade of Ifeanyi‘s mind in a few hours. The first five episodes are released in December, just in time for your reference before the New Year.

[12] The third tangible proof of Thumoslang power is captured by the YouTube series Thumoslang104, also known as Season 7 of NDBaker93. Its 20 videos show how Alec Mustafayev, a senior in high school, reacted to Thumoslang101 as he watched the original series. Alec’s life was impacted by Thumoslang, but not in the same way as Jairson’s life was.

[13] Thumoslang is still a brand new concept. As of this writing, there are no textbooks on Thumoslang yet. The next best thing is what has been written by Mark Canny and Nickantony Quach. It’s the 2017 book, Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration. Luckily for those who are in Rhode Island, the Douglas and Judith Krupp Library at Bryant University is the first library in the world to have the book in stock.

[14] An alternative approach is to sail through every video in the collection, Overhaul Your Business of the Self Using Thumoslang, which is now available on Rhode Island Foresight Television (Ri4CTV).
