To fall means you were up. Falling is different from tripping. You can trip on same ground level. Falling comes from a position of height in a descending form.
What happens when you fall is you get up again and keep trying. Falling strengthens the muscle. Falling creates awareness of danger. Falling teaches the brain caution. Falling is sometimes good training ground.
What you do when you fall is remind yourself of who you are. Dust up and climb straight back up again.
What you never do when you fall is stay down there. NEVER. The longer you stay down, the more the mockers showing up to ask you “what happened?”
Remember quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit.
Remember, not everyone smiling with you is delighted for you. Not everyone laughing at your jokes find you funny. Not every calling you friend is really a friend. – A friend is known in the time of adversity!
Remember, not every idea will progress into a plan. Not every plan will develop into a project. Not every project becomes a business venture. Not every business venture becomes successful. – Success is relative and determined only by the parameters chosen by you and your desires.
Remember in every relationship be it personal or business, you are the main actor. What are you hoping to achieve? pleasure or pain? gain or loss? Set your goals, maintain your focus and go be the best version of yourself on a daily basis. Be the sole determinant of your happiness. You hold the key. #YHTK
If you think your current situation will change just because you strongly desire the change , then you are funny. When you start taking action, then will you experience positive change including learning through obstacles.
If you think people will always understand that your decisions are based on your past experiences, then you are funny. People don’t spend time evaluating the basis of your why. They simply judge your action and judge you in the process.
So live your life free of their opinion and take your decisions based on your best interest. However, don’t be a jerk.
So now , stop clowning and get down to purposeful living after all you hold the key #YHTK
As the year gradually draws to a close, so does the financial year of many organisations, families and governments. Each new year comes with new plans of progress for the future. The new year is another indicator that you are getting older.
How well are you preparing for those days of inactive service. What you will eat, who you will visit, who will visit you, where you will go, what will entertain you etc.
Growing old requires early days commitment. Factor your financial, emotional, social, spiritual and physical activities into your new year plan. Do one thing today to make your tomorrow a better one.
Few years ago working in a customer service office, my team leader trying to motivate his team used to say to us “Turn it around”. When a customer calls to complain, position yourself to turn the situation around so they go away with a happy story and a positive feedback for you and the company.
How then are we turning our personal weaknesses to strengths? Weaknesses are to be appreciated because they are indicators of where you can be a better version of you. Weaknesses are only bad when nothing is done about them.
Below are some personality weaknesses, find yours and be a better you. After all #YHTK
Life truly is full of ups and downs. No one stays on a permanent roll of ups and ups. No matter how positive and optimistic you are, you will have your moments of doubts and reflection even if they are iota doses.
I experienced an absolute melt down last week and thankfully was able to find out it was pure hormonal. Many times though, mental chaos and melt down comes as a result of processing too many things in the head or in your mind, all at the same time. Just like opening too many windows on the computer, first it slows down and then it crashes if you don’t proceed to shut some inactive windows down.
Watch out this week for the open windows and remember to shut them as you go before your system crashes. Listen and obey the body. It’s another winning week.
“To thine own self, be true” – William Shakespeare.
It is contagious. You can catch it very easily by listening to all the reasons why you should not follow your dreams. They mean well by telling you all the cons. Don’t despise the advise coming from your loved ones. They are looking at the pitfalls, while you should be focused on your goals by building on the pros.
The more you listen to them, the tighter the grip on your thoughts, your plans; and the deeper the roots of fear, procrastination and eventually paralysis will stop you from moving on.
Stay focused on your goal. Don’t catch the fear virus and don’t spread fearvitis.
