The Zeal to Succeed

swamisivananda390760

How can one be successful? What does it take to attain the maximum level of success? Do we go to school to be successful? These are some of the question I asked myself whiles growing up and I believe some of you have once in your lifetime asked these same questions.

 

 Attaining the maximum level of success in life is not an easy journey; it takes time, perseverance, hard work and determination. The journey to success has got a narrow road; you are meant to face challenges, pains, and disappointments. The success we see, brings many loss. You have to hold on to whatever it is that you have set on your eyes on; the dreams. There is nothing impossible for you to do. Believe in yourself, set your paths right and stay focus. Remember, believing in oneself plays a vital role in shaping your future. It also paves the way for you to be successful. As the saying goes “A journey of a thousand miles, begins with one step”. Remember to put God first in everything you do. He is and will always be the reason for the season. Never forget that! Although, some people might be convince to think, education is the key to success. Well, I think I have to dispute that. A Motivational speaker and a Pastor, Dr. Myles Munroe stated in one of his motivational quotes that “The Bible does not say, a man’s education makes room for him, but that his gift does. Education is not the key to success, it doesn’t guarantee anything; it is your gift that is the key to success” And come to think of it, what is the source of every gift that we possess? Have you for once asked yourself this question? As humans we tend to put our trust in our fellow humans; thinking they are our source of wealth and everything we are made of. No, not at all! As humans, we need to understand that, “Every good and perfect gift that we possess is from above, coming down from the Father of Heavenly lights, with whom there is no change  or shifting shadow- James 1:17”

In our walks of life, we may find ourselves in temporal situations and we might think, that is the end of the road. Remember the way you think goes a long way to either make you or destroy you. Change the way feel about yourself. Just because your folks are succeeding in their endeavours, does not necessarily mean, you are a failure. There is so much more inside of you. Never allow any negativity to bring you down. You alone have the power to change your life and nobody else. Always have the zeal to succeed, be determined to get there and also be Achievement Oriented. I’m very much sure, you have heard of the adage “Procrastination is a thief of time” Oh yes, it is!! What needs to be done, has to be done well and immediately. Stop postponing things that needs to be done NOW. “Time and tide waits for no man” says an old adage. Resist from being Indolent and start working towards your dreams. Think Big and Work towards it. After all, God is not against Big thinking, But He is against you thinking you are bigger than anyone else. Think success and you will be successful. Be Achievement-Oriented. You Can. You Will. Make it Happen

                     5 Ways to Be Successful

1: Prayer:  The first step it takes to achieve your ultimate goal in life, is by prayer. Prayer answers all things. God in His own infinite wisdom, “Made life simple and plain but we have chosen to make our life very complicated- Ecclesiastes 7:29”. To achieve your aims and ambitions in life, you need to ask God to help you get where you want to be. Never stress yourself trying to make it on your own. You can’t!  As human and as a child of God, you need to “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”. Remember, it is the blessings of the Lord that makes us wealthy not hard work. Pray always and expect good things to happen. It’s already done.

 

2: Believe in yourself: The greatest way to achieve your ultimate goal in life, is to know yourself. Know your strength. Believing in one’s self goes a long way in helping you shape your future. Success comes to those who believe in their dreams. Most people become reluctant because of past mistakes and failures. The problems are meant to cross your path and challenges are also bound to come, but don’t stay in the filth, move on and stay focus on your dreams. You will achieve if you believe.

 

3: Perseverance: To persevere means to keep on striving. In our daily lives we tend to give up on our dreams, just because of the rejects and let downs we face in life. And yes, I know, to continue pressing on to that which you want to achieve in life, in spite of the difficulty and discouragement is not easy. I know, because I have been there myself, but the truth is, it doesn’t just end there. You will definitely get what you want if you don’t give up. It will take some time for you to realize it but it’s worth it. Keep on persisting and you will surely get to your destination. It’s not very far from here. Just mile away. Be patient. Don’t quit. Remember “Winners never quit and quitters never win”. Go get it.

 

4: Hard work and Determination:  “Hard work pays” as the saying goes. Work hard and be determine to get to where you want to be. Attaining the maximum level of success is not an easy journey, it requires the strong and brave to get there. Remember, you don’t have to be a Doctor, Banker or a Teacher to be successful. No! It doesn’t. It takes a hardworking man to be successful. You can be a salesman and be successful. All it takes is, having the high ability to save. Be courageous and keeping pressing on. You are already there.

 

  5: Set small achievable goals:  As the saying goes “A little drops of water makes a mighty ocean”. Have the courage to do small things with excellence. Learn to create work for yourself. Just a small business you love to engage in. Your success in life, revolves around you. Remember, you don’t have to be great to start, you have to start to be great. Keep yourself busy and active with the little idea you have. Start something and you won’t regret making that decision. It’s just one thought away. You can make it. Start something and it will grow. 

 

What Do You Tell Yourself?

what-you-tell-yourself-everyday-will-either-lift-you-up-or-tear-you-down-quote-1

What do you tell yourself when you wake up first thing in the morning? Do you believe what ever you say to yourself takes a negative and positive impact on your Life? How well do you deal with Issues, Problems and other challenges you face in life?

Each and every individual on this earth has got one way or the other, a problem to deal with. In our walk of life, we are bound to face challenges but in the midst of all the adversities, God promises us victory to stand tall. In every encounter that you make; you either give life or drain life out of it. Words are everything to life. So we have to be mindful of the words we utter. Just because you are not who you thought you would be in life, doesn’t mean you should bring upon yourself curses, with the words you speak out. What we, as humans, need to understand is that, the brain does not control the mind, the mind does. The brain and the mind obviously have an intimate relationship, but the mind is different: it is a collection of thoughts, patterns, perceptions, beliefs, memories and attitudes. Based on the research I made, concerning how the brain and the mind works is that;

A human brain works on “thought patterns”, which are nothing but “programming” that has been indented into its neural network. You can also observe a definite “pattern” in some of the thoughts that are produced in the brain. For example, it’s possible that your brain is presently in the habit of creating a pattern of negative thinking, where it seems to give a negative flavor/connotation to all its interpretations – in this case your brain is subconsciously in the habit of looking at reality in a negative manner and at the root of all its negative thinking is a subconscious belief in some “core” negative thoughts.

get-up-every-morning-and-tell-yourself-i-can-do-this-quote-1

You must understand that subconscious patterns are always running in “auto” mode in the brain, because at some point you took these patterns to be the truth of your life and invested belief in them to the point where they became “ingrained” patterns.

When you think a thought long enough, it automatically goes into “auto” mode because the neural pathways for this thought become strongly embedded in the neural network of your brain. For example, when you learn to drive a car it’s a very conscious effort initially, but after a few months the patterns become so embedded in the brain that the whole action of driving becomes subconscious or “auto” mode.

Certain negative thoughts are running in “auto” mode in your brain, and these negative thoughts are usually the root cause of many negative perceptions and interpretations that you come up with in your daily life. Unless you identify and let go of belief in these subconscious negative thoughts, you will constantly be struggling with the negativity in your brain. A simple awareness of the subconscious negative patterns is enough to start becoming free of them.

5 Things To Tell Yourself Each Day

1: Today will be my day

2:I am the Best Me there is.

3: I know that I’m a winner.

4: I can do it, I know I can.

5: God will always be with me

Finally, i want to urge you to be very mindful of your utterances because whatever you tell yourself works for your own good. Oh Yes! Ok fine! How about, you reminding yourself each and everyday that, you are a winner, an over-comer and a conqueror? It does work. Take control of your destiny, let every word that comes out from your mouth, speak life into the dead and most above all, make sure your words are sincere and true. Live a happy life and Enjoy yourself with the words you speak.

Where Talent Lies! An African Reproach.

Firstly, I want to share with you, a very pathetic message I received from a follower on facebook.

Hello Sammy,

I’m Harriet, a graduate of Ghana Senior High School, Koforidua. I completed last year. Please I have always had a dream of becoming a fashion designer, since childhood but my father insisted that, he wants me to work as an accountant. For me that’s not my field. The reason been that, I am not academically good. I was repeated three times when i got to my second year in high school. It all began sometime ago, at age 10, when i spotted a child being beaten mercilessly by his teacher, just because he failed in his examination; this instilled fear in me. So since then, i developed this strange fear for my teachers in school. So this caused my failure in class anytime i partake in an examination. But my Dad doesn’t know all this, so all he keeps saying is that “Harriet you know I’m an educationist, look at me, I have three B.Sc. three Master’s degree and a PhD to show. So why don’t you take my footsteps, learn hard and become what i want you to be? If all the time you spend on daily in making this rubbish, were converted to your academic work, by now, you would have been on a very good pedestal. Life is not a joke and without a good results, you are going nowhere.”

Ever since he uttered those words to me, i haven’t being myself, i spend time crying, asking myself if, he is really my biological Dad. why can’t he forget about qualifications and support what i do best in; my passion for being a Fashion designer. He even went ahead to burn all the materials i use for my craft. I feel terrible now. I even won an award for “The Most Creative Student” because of my craft but my Dad got hold of it and destroyed it, saying, he wanted me to win an award for “The Best Overall Student” in school”. In fact, I feel horrible, I give up. I feel like committing suicide. Please Help Me.”

Indeed Parents are in the right position to direct the path of their Children but should we always pay heed to whatever decision they take concerning our lives, i mean our career? So what if that isn’t our chosen field? Will it be a sign of disrespect if a child refuses to take whatever career they choose for him/her. After reading this sad story, I became very worried.. Why do some Parent decide to render their wards useless by choosing a job field for them. Parents are to train, take a very good care of, ensure the well-being of their wards but not to choose for them, a job field. Children must be allowed to choose their career path in life. They know the capabilities/skills they possess.

Life as we see it, is not a joke. Each and every individual has a purpose to live for, a dream/goal to achieve and a mission to accomplish on this earth. Nobody was created without a purpose or a dream. I was watching a movie some weeks ago which actually talks about the pains and ordeals children go through in the hands of their Parents in the quest for a career path. And in this movie, there was a girl whose dad was a Professor and her mother a businesswoman, and this said girl in question, had the gift/talent of making beads and weaving beautiful baskets but her Dad insisted saying “None of my Children must become poor, its either, you change your mind and find something better doing in life, or you leave my house”. This went on and on, until, one day, the girl couldn’t bear the agony she was going through and committed suicide. So then, whose fault was it? Who caused it? Was it her Dad or herself?

American educator, author, businessman, and keynote speaker, Stephen Covey, in one of his Inspirational quote said “when you engage in a work that taps your talent and fuels your passion-that rises out in a great need in the world that you feel drawn by conscience to meet-therein lies your voice, your calling, your soul’s code”.

Parents need to understand that, you don’t have to be a Doctor, an Accountant or a Teacher to be successful, being a Fashion Designer, a Writer, Musician, can make you Successful. It all depends on how diligent you are with your work.

A Message to the Youth

Your time is limited. So don’t waste it living someone Else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Never let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Hard work and determination will show your Altitude in life. Never be discouraged. Take control of your destiny. You have a lot to bless the world with; your gifts, skill and all that you have inside of you. You are destined to reign. Follow your passion and you will achieve. You Can..You Will..
