A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer’s showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man’s name embossed in gold. Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said, “With all your money you give me a Bible?” He then stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible.
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and a wonderful family, but realizing his father was very old, he thought perhaps he should go to see him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make the arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.
When he arrived at his father’s house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father’s important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he was reading, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer’s name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words… “PAID IN FULL”.
How many times do we miss blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?
I trust you enjoyed this. Pass it on to others. Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
1. You find it hard, if not impossible, to complete tasks that don’t interest you. While this sounds like a virtue, it’s a liability in terms of feeling like you always lack the motivation to do the boring (but important stuff) in life.
2. You were always the kid who was just a little bit different than the rest – you’re more inclined to do things for how they feel, not how they make you look. In everything from the clothes you choose to the people you hang out with, you’re influenced more by how you genuinely feel than what you assume other people will think about it.
3. You’re hard on yourself, and are always on a warpath to fix your flaws. You feel a duty to be the best version of yourself possible. Because you know your ability to enjoy your life is dependent on how capable you are of doing so, you’re hyper-sensitive to all of your failings and misgivings.
Basically, you don’t want to disappoint yourself.
4. You’re reflective – you think a lot about who you are and who you want to become. You spent a lot of time evaluating yourself and reflecting on how things happened and why. You think about your life as much as you spend your time actually living it.
5. You don’t hold other people responsible for your feelings. You don’t blame and victimize yourself as a means of thwarting your own emotional responsibility. You don’t need other people to make you happy (even if you do enjoy having them around).
6. You see obstacles as opportunities.
Intrinsically motivated people see discomfort as a sign that they are on the precipice of something new, not that they are victims of a suffering for which they must unfairly endure.
7. You value “bad” feelings, too. All emotions are part of the same signaling system – they direct and guide us toward what we want, and what we don’t. We disrupt the process when we avoid some emotions and value others. Intrinsically motivated people listen to everything their response systems tell them, and evaluate accordingly.
8. You’re highly intuitive. People who are connected to their own internal navigation systems are that much more attuned to the habits, intentions and responses of other people. (Knowing yourself is the path to understanding others).
9. You romanticize everything. Whether you’re just always looking at the world with rose-colored glasses or you’re actually inclined to want romantic love and companionship, you’re very aware of what makes your head and heart swoon (and you seek it often).
10. You pursue what you love, even if not as your full-time job. Whether it’s only as a side-gig, or something you do as a hobby on the weekends, you know how absolutely imperative it is to follow the things that call you. You believe in a higher purpose.
11. You’re a natural psychologist. People who are driven by their own interests are naturally more self-aware, which makes them able to interpret other people’s issues that much more easily.
12. You understand that “loving yourself” is the first and final act of a life well lived. You are only as useful to others as you are capable of taking care of yourself – you understand that “loving yourself” isn’t just treating yourself to a hot bath now and again but respecting your feelings and listening to yourself and taking time to become the best person you can be. The people you love (and the world, really) are relying on it.
13. You value quality > quantity when it comes to friends and relatives. If you don’t feel genuinely connected to someone, it’s difficult for you to feign a relationship with them.
14. You’re on a never-ending quest to understand things more deeply. The more you understand yourself, the more you understand your life, the world, other people, etc. You want to know why things are the way they are, and what purpose they serve, and so on.
15. You believe that happiness is a choice. Even if you can’t always (or don’t always want) to choose it, your fundamental belief system surrounds the idea that you are ultimately in control of what you think and how you feel – if only you take responsibility for it.
16. You believe that life is about growth. You believe that everything in your life serves to teach you and make you a better person than you were before – and that, in itself, is the main motivating force in your life.
Spend more time with people who believe in you; people who push you to do the things that scare you and people who push you to pursue your dreams no matter how absurd they seem to be.
Surround yourself with people who don’t belittle your creativity or your talents and surround yourself with people who know what you’re capable of even when you don’t know it yourself.
Surround yourself with those who reassure you instead of those who make you doubt yourself.
Spend more time with people who make you laugh when you’re down and people who don’t take life too seriously. Surround yourself with those who are able to laugh at themselves — those who don’t pretend to be perfect and don’t expect you to be either.
Surround yourself with people who respect you for who you are not for your money or your education. Find those who love you for your soul — the ones who are not expecting you to do anything for them. Find those who prefer quality over quantity.
Spend more time with people who teach you how to be better, dream bigger and love harder.
But more than anything, spend more time with people who make you feel loved, people who remind you of your worth and people who truly appreciate your presence in their lives.
Stay away from those who think you’re replaceable, those who think you’re temporary and those who make you feel like you don’t matter.
Stay away from people who only want you to forget someone else or people who only run to you when they need something from you.
Stay away from people who make you feel like you have to change because you’re not good enough or smart enough.
Stay away from people who drain you to lift themselves higher and stay away from those who smile in your face then stab you in your back.
Because the people we spend time with influence the way we see the world and the way we see ourselves and it’s important to find people who make you feel that the world is beautiful and that you are beautiful too.
Spend more time with people who don’t make you feel alone and find people who only want to make you smile.
An average person with average talents and ambition and average education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals – Mary Kay Ash
The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, learn about them or even seriously consider them as believable or achievable. winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them – Denis Waitley
Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life – Harvey Mackay
Setting goals for significant accomplishments you want to achieve in your life, both personal and professional accomplishments, costs you nothing. Failure to set them can cost you plenty. You are smack in the middle of the only life your going to have. You can choose to succeed, or choose to drift; having goals makes the difference – Alec Mackenzie
The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them – Jim Rohn
You must have long- range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short- range failures – Charles Noble
Goals are dreams we convert to plans and take action to fulfill – Zig Ziglar
Think big goals and win big success – David Schwartz
Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination – Fitzhugh Dodson
Don’t let your plans or goals become more important than yourself, or the ones you care about – Jose Harris
Everyday I try as much as possible to be motivated in setting out goals to discipline myself to what i want to achieve in life. It is hard sometimes especially trying to save money for a particular project. Whenever I start, one thing or the other comes to play, making me use the funds for an emergency.
Goals are really good, please be motivated to start if you haven’t started.
I have discovered that often people who seemingly have everything in terms of fame and fortunate believe that somehow they will eventually find happiness by pursuing those things even more. But it’s a dead end road, for lasting happiness and peace can only come from God.
King Solomon discovered. During his reign, Israel had peace and was very wealthy. Solomon could have anything money can buy, and in search for happiness he tried everything imaginable- wealth, sex, power, pleasure, alcohol, even religion.
“I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure! (Ecc 2:10) But what was the result of Solomon’s search? Yet when i surveyed all that my hand had done and i had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind” (Ecc 2:11). Finally he realized that lasting happiness and meaning in life could only be found in God.
These things should be warnings to us, to be sure that we do not seek to fill the emptiness in our lives through things that can never satisfy our hearts only God can do that and He will if we will open our hearts to Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
This has been the experience of Christians throughout the ages, and it can be your experience as well as you open your heart and invite Jesus Christ into your life.
When i read this letter, I got some flashes about celebrities who lost their way falling to divorce, drugs, and death. I don’t need to start mentioning names but we all read the news updates online.
Prophet Isaiah declared centuries ago, “Why spend your labour on what does not satisfy”?
1. Nobody knows what they are “doing with their lives.” Some people have a better idea of what they’re working toward, but ultimately, none of us can accurately anticipate or summarize what our existence is about. Not yet.
2. You decide what your life is defined by. The feeling of being “lost” isn’t what happens when you go off-path, it’s when you forfeit control. It’s what happens when you don’t want to accept the course of events that have unfolded. Being found again is a matter of owning what happened to you, and continuing to write the story.
3. J.K. Rowling didn’t know she was going to be one of the most famous writers in the world, she was just writing a story for her kids. Steve Jobs didn’t know he’d be a pioneer of how humanity interacts with technology, he was just a guy in his garage making a computer. Oprah didn’t know she’d become the poster woman for self-improvement and success, she was just trying to do a job. You don’t need to know what you’re doing to still do something extraordinary.
4. There is no way you will be able to predict or plan what will be happening in 5 years from now.
5. If you can predict and plan for that, dream bigger. Try harder.
6. Planning your life (or having a cohesive idea of “what you’re doing”) isn’t necessarily ambition, it’s more just a soothing notion. Focus instead on what you want to do with each and every day of your existence. That’s noble. That’s worthwhile. That will get you somewhere.
7. You owe nothing to your younger self. You are not responsible for being the person you once thought you’d be.
8. You owe everything to the adult you are today. You owe it to yourself to ask yourself what you like, what you want, what calls you, what you need, and what you deserve.
9. Do you know why you don’t have the things you once thought you wanted? Because you don’t want them anymore. Not badly enough.
10. It’s likely that you’re between realizing you don’t want what you once did, and giving yourself permission to want what you want now.
11. Give yourself permission to want what you want now.
12. If you want to change your life, stop thinking about how you feel lost and start coming up with actions you can take that move you in a direction – any direction – that’s positive. It’s a lot harder to think your way into a new way of acting than it is to act your way into a new way of thinking.
13. Nobody’s life is as good as it looks online.
14. Nobody cares about your social media presence as much as you do.
15. Social media has uniquely and distinctly made us ever-more concerned with the next big “goal.” If you feel like you don’t know where your life is going, it’s likely because you don’t know what you want your next big impressive “goal” to be.
16. You don’t need to accomplish anything to be a worthwhile human being. Very few people are actually meant to be extraordinary. That does not mean you cannot know contentment, love, joy, and all the real wonders of life.
17. Your life is only ever as good as your perception of it is. Feeling lost or like you “don’t know what you’re doing” is only solved by learning to think about things differently. That’s all.
18. Stop asking: “What am I doing with my life?” and start asking: “What am I doing with today?
“Tragedy is more important than love. Out of all human events, it is tragedy alone that brings people out of their own petty desires and into awareness of other humans’ suffering. Tragedy occurs in human lives so that we will learn to reach out and comfort others” — C. S. Lewis
1. Life is unpredictable. No matter how much you plan your life or how much you know about it, you will always be faced with situations you didn’t prepare for or things you thought will never happen to you until it hits close to home and then you’re forced to change — which is the biggest lesson of all. 2. Don’t take time for granted. Sometimes you postpone important things because you think you have all the time in the world, but life runs faster than you think and in a moment everything can change and you will always regret the things you waited to do or the words you waited to say — unfortunately life doesn’t go by your timing. 3. Appreciate the people in your life. Appreciate your family, your friends and your loved ones because tragedies happen in a flash and you’re left with the memories you have with these people. It’s easier to know that you’ve given them the love and appreciation they deserved instead of regretting the way you treated them. 4. They open your eyes to your blessings. When you learn about tragedies happening to the closest people to you, you start counting your blessings and you become more grateful for the simple things in your life. 5. They help you find your purpose in life. Or help you question your purpose until you find it. They shake up your thoughts and feelings and make you wonder about your life and your goals — forcing you to pursue a more meaningful life. 6. They help you find your inner strength. You think you can’t handle certain tragedies but when they actually happen, you find the strength within you to endure the pain and find the light in tragedy — the s ilver lining and the power you need to move on from such troubling times. 7. They bring you out of your shell. Out of your meaningless complaints, out of your unnecessary grudges or out of your own head and your own ego . It humbles you because you realize that there are bigger things to worry about and that tragedies can happen to you too.
And sometimes tragedies inspire you to help others, share stories and put those tragedies to good use. Because when the pain subsides, you look back and find the valuable lessons you took from these tragedies and how they somehow made you a wiser person.
In our world today, the academic expectations placed on our children has increased significantly compared to times of old. Such expectations most of the time lead to frustrations especially when environmental and sometimes biological and psychological factors don’t work in favour of the child. Research has shown that many children suffer from Depression and Anxiety with a strong link to their academic performance. Coupled with other reasons, its no wonder many children find it difficult adapting and reacting to the ever changing expectations of the society.
If you are an educator or parent, join us on the 28th of April 2018 as we unravel the reasons for these challenges our children face and learn the psychological principles for getting the best out of your child. See you there!!!
I relate to this article very well. Guys remember when I wrote on getting a flexible job? Yes the job is a contract job. Thank you Byron Pulsifer. I use to think am very lazy, but clarifying this issue has given me the chill. Have been surfing online and calling peeps for available vacancy. But I trust my God, expecting a Miracle for a better stable job before my contract expires next year.
There are those who hold to an interesting definition of patience. To them, patience means something that says you should wait until the time is just right before you do something.
An Example Take this example; it is about a man who has a family with a wife and two very small children. He has known for some time that he is going to lose his job, a job that has been hanging by a thread for over the last year. This is a job that has no medical benefits or pension; it is only a contract position. It has absolutely no security. But, it is a job that pays well unlike some other jobs in the same kind of area of expertise. And, he gets to work at home. When approached about his concerns for his family’s security, his standard reply is that he isn’t worried about their security. He must not be because he has yet to apply for one job, or, for that matter, hasn’t even looked in a newspaper help wanted section, or on the Internet that lists jobs available in his area. When pushed a little harder about what he is going to do his response is only that he is going to have to have patience and ride the job to the bitter end.
So What Does He Do What I find so unusual is that he knows his job is coming to an end; he known this for some time but believes that all will be well – that patience must be exercised to see whether he will get another offer from another contractor in the same area. He isn’t very busy any longer either with his current contract. In reality, he only spends no more than two hours day actually performing any functions. So, what does he do for the rest of the time ? Instead of using his time to look for work, or rewrite his resume, he plays online computer games – that all. Is this patience to see what will happen to his job with the hope that he will be offered another contract or is this laziness?
No Sense of Urgency Sad. There seems to be no sense of urgency; no sense that he is putting his family in jeopardy not to mention the real possibility that he could lose his house. He has no money saved and if he is out of work longer than one month, the mortgage and the rest of his obligations will not be met. As the old inspirational saying goes, Patience is a virtue , but laziness is not associated with patience in any form whatsoever.
There are a lot of people I meet, when I’m out and about, who tell me that they would love to be able to work at home like I do. There seems to be an over exaggeration about working at home that does not come close to approaching reality though. Unfortunately, one of those unreal views is that you will have time to do almost anything you want, and when you want. One of the other aspects to this overly unrealistic view is that some people believe that they would not have to bother with anyone disturbing their working time and, therefore, would be able to accomplish more in less time.
Let me attempt to dispel a couple of these unrealistic views with as few words as possible. To be able to work at home successfully takes all of the following: motivation, perseverance, work, good habits, no excuses, balance, accountability, and action.
It Takes More Than You Think It takes motivation in the sense that you must be able to motivate yourself to actually do the work you have to do. You no longer have a boss, or supervisor to answer to.
You must be able to persevere in order to take on hard tasks and stick with them until they are done. This is no different than if you work for someone else who is expecting you to accomplish what has been asked.
You must develop good habits that do not interfere with some level of balanced life. For example, it is never a good idea to eat your lunch at your desk at work because of possible interruptions by colleagues who view any time at your desk as an indicator that you are working, and the same applies to working from home. You need to take a break away from your work area so when you return you are more refreshed and ready to work.
Avoid This Problem One of the biggest concerns when you work from home is not to fall into the trap of using excuses not to work. For example, here are some seasonal excuses that are easy to use. Spring is a good time to plant the garden or clean up the flowerbeds. When you worked for someone else, these chores were done in the evening or on the weekends and that is still the time to do them when you work at home. Do not take time off your working day for these chores and the same applies to summer when the sun is shining which will tempt you to go outside or sit on the deck, or read a good book in the shade of one of your trees. Or, in winter when snow can be cleared during your workday instead of early morning or evening as you normally did before. You can find lots and lots of distractions at home – beware.
Adopt Valuable Principles The rest of the work at home scenario involves accountability – you must organize your time and use it effectively – you report to the tasks you’ve listed to be done. Each day should start with a set of specific goals – if you do not accomplish them, you are the only one to blame. And, action is the key to keep going by doing what is necessary. Without action, everything else is a time waster.
Other People Issues To Avoid There are many more I haven’t talked about that can cause you problems – friends wanting you to take time off from your work day to go to lunch, play a fast game of golf in good weather, or not having a dedicated place or office to work in undisturbed by other family members who can be very disruptive by just going about their own business – noise, chatter, TV, radio, phone calls from their friends, the dog barking and so on.
So, if you think working at home is a cakewalk, it is not. But, if you are a self-motivator, great organizational skills, have great work habits, can avoid distractions and can persevere when times or tasks are tough, then you have a real good chance of making working from home a real success.
