Your purpose for living is not determined by your failures in life. We are all unique in our own special way. No one is exempted. We were all made to use the tear ducts given to us by our Maker; you have to go through PAIN to experience PROGRESS. Such is life. Life is a journey full of uncertainties and we are all bound to go through it. And yes, some were born with a silver spoon in their mouth and others, were to suffer to gain. Regardless of your background and whatsoever situation you are going through; bear in mind that, there will always be a light at the end of every tunnel. Quit self-doubt and strive hard to achieve greatness. There came a time in my life, that I thought it was all over but with Prayer, Hardwork and Determination, I was able to achieve greatness. Remember, people for that matter, will come at you with all sort of let downs, words of discouragement just because Success isn’t reflecting in the work that you do but pay no heed to what they say; it is not necessarily about them, it is about you. The Perception some people have about you, does not make you a loser, it is you that makes you a loser; it’s a Choice. Love what you do, it will surely pay off one day. Going through Challenges/Difficulties in life is a sure thing. Below are few solutions I discovered in my quest to be successful:

1: Prayer – Prayer is and will always be the only means by which Humanity links up with Divinity. Without Prayer, our success is temporal. Whatever situation you find yourself in, just pray about it.
“Proverbs 10:22 – It is the blessings of the Lord that brings wealth, without painful toil for it”
Weeping and feeling all moody won’t solve the problems, it will make them worst. Therefore make Prayer your priority in every aspect of your life and you will see greatness happening all around you.
2: Be Optimistic – The only thing that keeps us going in life and wanting to do more is Hope. Never Lose Hope in anything you do. Being optimistic has saved lots of lives and restored lots of properties. Some people end up committing suicide when there is lack of hope. Some people lost their lives because they felt there was no need to live. And yes, it very painful to lose a loved one when all he/she did was pray and believe God for a miracle but sometimes we need to have the spirit to wait on God; I call that “Firm Faith”. Don’t give up and never give in, because you will surely make it. God’s time is the best.
Keep Praying and keep believing God for a miracle. You Can. Make it Happen.

Have you ever, for once in your lifetime felt like the world’s biggest failure? Do you think you have nothing left inside of you? Regardless of who you think you are, there is something lurking. The reality is that, there is something you have to do; dreams to achieve and a purpose to live for. If you have ever felt this way, then I guess this message is for YOU. Enjoy Reading…!!!

 

Life as we all know, has got pathways, you either go the right way or the wrong way; it’s your choice. Life will always present us with new ways or strategies to help us achieve our goals/ambitions but, to what time can we wait for that? “Time” they say alters appearance. The fact that everything isn’t going the way we want it to go, doesn’t mean we are the world’s biggest failure. Some friends succeed whiles others fail; that’s just how far the world has come. The word “FAITH’ has been taken out, our Christian life and has been replaced with “Fear”. We have given in to what the world present to the table.

Each and every individual on this earth works based on their TIMEZONE. People around you may be ahead of you but this shouldn’t be a big deal and never waste much time and energy thinking about why you are not making progress in everything you do; just remember, some friends you started with, might also be behind you. At least this should motivate you to keep moving in your chosen field. Failure is not death. For me, I think, failure is more or less a stepping stone to GREATNESS. When you fail, it’s an opportunity to get back up and excel in all your endeavors. Strive for success. Never allow the success of others bring you down. Get your spirit up and start moving. Remember there is time for everything. Make good use of your time. “Procrastination is a thief of time” as the adage goes.

What do you see when you look at yourself in a mirror? What reflection do you get? Regardless of who you think you are. You have a mission to accomplish, dreams to achieve and a purpose to live for. Never underestimate the power instilled in you by the Maker of all things. You have what it takes to make your world a better place. Quit doubting and get started. Enjoy reading!!

 

In our walks of life, we tend to meet people of different self-belief and way of thinking. The way you perceive yourself to be, goes a long way to either shape your future or break you. You are who you perceive yourself to be not what others think of you. Our thought life makes us unique and sometimes makes us turn our back on the dreams we are optimistic about. You are what you think. Take hold of your destiny. Never allow a mere criticism drown out your inner voice. Take hold of inspiration. There is so much inside of you. Get rid of the doubt and get started. Life will always present to you, opportunities to make you doubt the potentials stacked within. Each and every one of us are bound to meet the 3 D’s of Life, which is Difficulties, Discouragement and Disappointments, but if you know who you are in Christ Jesus, nothing is impossible. You can do all things through Him that strengthens you- Philippians 4:13. He has instilled in us the power to do the impossible. One of the ways by which, one can do the impossible or achieve one’s set goals is by self-belief. Believing in one’s self, goes a long way to shape one’s future. You are Strong, Fit, Courageous, Wonderful, Powerful and an Overcomer. That is who you are in Christ and that is how He sees you to be. Never underestimate yourself, because if indeed we were created in God’s own image, then the probability that we are able to do the impossible is very high. So why look down on yourself when you have everything at your disposal? Keep pressing on and you will surely get to your final destination. Remember, believing in one’s self paves a half way through every situation. And yes, I know sometimes life has a way of knocking us down to the point where, we can’t even pray for ourselves but with Prayers and Faith in Christ, everything will come to a successful end. Below are few ways on how to know yourself.

1: Know Your Worth: One of the most essential ways to know your worth is by Valuing one’s self. Valuing one’s self goes a long way to shape one’s future. Many are those who underestimate themselves because of past hurts, disappointment, failures in life. What every individual ought to know is that, as humans, living in this crazy world, we are bound to go through some challenges but in the midst of all the adversities, God has given us the power and strength to overcome every temptations that come our way. You have the ability and capacity to do the impossible. You only need to take a step of faith and reach out to that, which is missing in your life. You can if only you persist.

2: Self-Examination:  There comes a time in a man’s life when he has to sit himself down and examine some happenings and make a decision to change. Knowing your strength and weaknesses can help you know the steps to take in order to achieve your set goals. Each and every individual ought to know that achieving the maximum level of success in life, is by Self-Examination.

3: Self-Belief: Believing in one’s self paves a half way through every situation. One of the ways by which one can do the impossible is by self-belief. Never concede to your failures in life. Create your set goals, believe you can, nothing becomes impossible when self-belief sets in. Never rely on your weakness, thinking nothing is achievable.  Keep your head up and reach out to that which is lost in your life, and start fighting for it. Don’t let your weaknesses overshadow or overwhelm you. Know your strength and set your paths right. Everything is achievable with self-belief. Everything that happens, happens at the time God choses.

Get rid of the doubts and get started. You Can!!

“Your Ability to make it in life, depends on your ability to sell”

 So then how can one be successful in life? Is it by hard work and determination? Well, I think every successful person we see out there, has his/her own story to tell the world. The struggles and challenges they faced on their journey to be successful. Most of the great men we see out there, were once nobody. So then you ask yourself, how were they able to make it to the Apex. How did it all happen? Growing up, I had this perception of myself; thinking whether I was ever going to make it big someday. Until one day, I came to the realization that, achieving ones dream in life doesn’t come on a silver platter, it takes perseverance, hard work and determination. In order for one to get to the highest pedestal in life, requires bravery, the strength to stand firm when all hell is breaking loose. And yes, school will always be the first option on the list of every parent; but have you for once, asked yourself, how many unemployed graduates we have currently in our country as a whole? Well, I’m not trying to dispute the fact that education is very important in our everyday lives. I’m for Education not against; but there are certain issues that has gone undisclosed in the country.

To be educated means, having had a good training; being knowledgeable and refined in judgment. But today, every other person can say to himself “I’m Educated” but lacks the necessary skills to be successful and make life worth living. What we need to understand is that, our success in life is not only based on our educational background but also our God-given gifts/talents. Using what you have to get what you want in life. Gifts are the most essential qualities to be possessed by a person. We must learn to make use of the gifts we have in every aspect of our lives. Your ability to get the climax, depends on your zeal towards the work you do, regardless of the type; you will surely achieve your dreams. Although it will not come as easy as you may need it but there is a likelihood that it will definitely come to pass. You can be a Salesman, Teacher etc. and be successful. Irrespective of the job you do, never under-estimate yourself. Comparing yourself to other people’s level of success, will rather make you stressful. And stress, is being here but wanting to be there. I know it’s nerve-racking to see the people you grew up with, get to the highest pedestal, but it’s never the end. Get the right ideas, set your paths right, never reject small beginnings. Whatever it is that you have in mind to do, do it; forget about what people will say. An American Information technology Entrepreneur and Inventor, Steve Jobs, in one of his Quotes said “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice”. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Your ability to sell, paves way for you to become who you were meant to be; the best you. Stay focus, never rely on your weakness. Money as some people may say” Is the root of all evil”. Most people tend to use the narrow road to get what they want; the shortcuts in life, but the issue here is that, whatever it is that you have now, which is not from the Lord, will always be temporal. And indeed, there will always be an alternative to every problem at hand. The youth of today have forgone the word” Hard work” and have embraced the word “Quickie” just to live a life pleasing to the people around them; most especially, friends. Well, I’m not trying to be so perfect and judgmental here; just bear with me. Attaining the maximum level of success in life, entails a lot; each and every one of us, is bound to face challenges; irrespective of who we are and where we originated from. There is always a “First time” in every “I made it”. Strive for success. No matter the type of work you do for a living, you need to have the zeal and strong ability to sell whatever it is that you are engaged in; be it, street hawking etc. Being an Entrepreneur means undertaking personal financial risk; and it entails a lot. You are certain to face challenges in the business where there is no partnership. You tend to take decisions and face losses alone. There so many business risk that every other businesses are meant to deal with but in all, we have to make use of our Entrepreneurial skills to eliminate any future risk. Your aptitude to reach set target in your business depends on your aptitude to sell what you do.

Finally, love what you do because the only way to do great work is to love what you do. Live a happy life. Have the “Midas Touch”. You Can. You Will. Make It Happen.

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.
