Looking for a term that defines individuals as having created everything around them by being a medium of perception.
A nice suggestion, thank you! But I've gotten the impression there's a better term out there that I'm looking for. We create reality. There is no "the truth" there is a truth that exists in us and it's possible to change it, depending on other agents beliefs and powers to exert those beliefs. Something is usually the truth when the majority think it's the truth, but someone or some people made the majority think that way. I'll try to use the word I'm looking for in a sentence: "Who won the second world war? Was it America or was it the Soviet Union? [insert word] believe you can create the truth by influencing people. Most pro-Russians believe they won while pro-Americans believe they won." If there is no such term I will coin one and start my climb to stardom :) too bad creationism is already taken - I think it's describing.

How do you manipulate yourself - positively?
I had my hopes up for some fancy whoop-ti-doo, like hypnotizing yourself, a special questioning/exercise system for yourself, or a special just-do-it mindset I could adapt. My best line of thinking currently is: You have to be able to trust in yourself no matter what, and it is something you gradually build up, by only committing to promises you can keep. That way, even if you do occasionally make a promise that is hard, you know you only make promises you can keep, thus it forces you forward. Here I would simply spend more time deciding answers such as “yes” and “no”. In this line of thinking, could there be any other personal skills you can build up, and how to? Maybe this should focus more on motivation, I'm trying to learn something new, so I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for: Some things that motivate me: - Inspirational movies where something is done that was hard, or where people live poorly, as I hope to live a life where money is a lesser concern than currently. - Facts about family, friends, and people in different countries. E.g. China with some insane child prodigies, studying in metro stations to practice focus with a lot of noise around. - Stories about others, my latest read was Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, I feel some of his traits mirror my own. His career choice was compelling for me, and it has made me question my current pursuit in economics, which I feel is more a matter of me knowing I have to pick fast, and my family giving me input, than completely my own pick, based on interests. I feel more creative than those numbers. I want to create actual value, not just loop money around in fancy ways. - My wish to show my ex-girlfriend, and others that I am special. - My wish to leave behind a legacy of some kind. Something that would make people’s lives happier. - The thrill I get when something succeeds. - Dreams. Maybe, if I gave this more thought, I could have it all boiled down to something I could remind myself about, and then work harder

Judging from your picture(read:age) there must have been times where you've been stuck in your described rut of procrastination, like relationships breaking, death in the family or the likes. You might be the type that works to get your mind off things in which case you might be handicapped when responding to this question: How do you pick yourself up?
