My people have a saying that …Truth is bitter than poison… You may be tempted to feel that if you ignore something troubling you long enough, it will eventually go away, Check what you are ignoring. Sometimes little things grow into menacing monsters.
Don’t let your ego stop you from improving; don’t be too arrogant to understand that you could have done better and too arrogant to accept advice from others.
Blaming your past for your future is usually safe until you realize that ,you have the power and right to change your future,that’s when you wake up from the Blame game and decide to do something you will realize that you wasted your time thinking you could not in the first place.
Sometimes we think wealth is only reserved for the privileged and we don’t put any effort. Don’t believe this!
You are not too messed up for success and Happiness .Self-esteem has a lot to do with meeting your sales target, I found out that if you have low self-esteem, you may be fast to conclude that some rejections are not just for the product you sell or the service you offer but for you as a human being, this may make you keep away from asking people to buy, for the fear of being rejected.Isolate the rejections from your person.
I will start tomorrow or the next weekend; most times we don’t end up doing these things that we procrastinate on. We lie to ourselves that we will complete the tasks.
Everyone is living their lives, with their own problems and they are busy trying to solve them as they come.
Stop the blame game “It’s my parents fault” and get busy. They did theirs. Use the resources obtainable, no body owes you anything, pull the strings away from momma’s apron and stop making excuses because you are lazy.
Sometimes we say “I can’t do it alone”. Especially with that vibe that screams ‘we totally need guidance or advice’ but the truth is that we need a Nanny to carry us, change our diapers and feed us. Check! Maybe you don’t need guidance, you need to start something . Consistency should be invited. Fuel is mentorship; you need to make fire first, for the fuel to expand it. Ask yourself “Am I sure I am not just looking for a babysitter?” Maybe we need to be reminded on what a mentor is really all about .A mentor’s job is to call you out on your nonsense.
Do you constantly use this line “I don’t know where to start”? How about this “I don’t know what to do”. Most times we cover the fear of Execution with lack of knowledge and it stops at that. You don’t have to know everything before you start take step forward. John Maxwell says “Fail forward “, you are scared that you don’t know enough, you are afraid of embarrassment, you don’t need to know the entire course before you start school.
You may feel that you are way too old or too young for that, see! The internet , to an extent has given us some leverage this period . So get your butt up and add value. It’s mainly how capable you are of providing value to the world.
Hey you! Do you think that when you have all the luxuries of this world, you will be happy? Do you equate happiness with social status? If you are unhappy now, you will not find happiness with more stuff.
You don’t have all the time in the world, get busy; don’t end up living your life, wallowing in the misery built with your idle hands in the evening of your life. Keep track of your activities; you can’t improve what you don’t measure.
Don’t say “I don’t have a choice” you have and that’s to stop being scared of the unfamiliar. I used to always say “I am stuck here”. The truth is that, I am not a tree. You are not one either.
I don’t know where to start and what to do. It starts with making up your mind to succeed and be happy.
Thank you and all the best.
