You have one, and only one, noble task to carry out in life; that no matter the circumstances people may be in, you will be their reliable source of joy, a spring of cold water in the desert of desolation, a ray of light in the dungeon of despair, the Moses stick on the banks on the washing currents of the Red Sea of restlessness. You are there to be an inspiration.
Fear usually paralyses us. We fear that if we embark on a business of our choice, we will fail. We fear that, if we attempt to come up with an innovation, the market will not accept it. We are afraid of introducing our ideas because we think that others will laugh at us. We are not good enough to comment on issues of strategic importance. What we usually forget is that ‘you do not know what you can achieve until you try’. Losing in life is part of the game.
In life, we are super-talented; we are super-intelligent. We have in us the ability and drive to succeed in life more than we can imagine and comprehend. But, surely, what is the Berlin War to our success, to the very life of our dreams? Nothing, and surely nothing, beats our misallocation of the energy which is the driving ability of our ambitions, talents, intelligence and all ingredients of success. Take time to follow the life of beggars.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
