Believe In Yourself No Matter What People Say or Think!

“Death is inevitable, but only those who are determined to birth their dreams will live even after they die” Kelechi Madubuike

If having others believing in you and your dream was a requirement for success, most of the worlds greats would never have been where they are today, and perhaps, would not have been able to accomplish anything worthwhile in life. Sometimes, taking several opinions from the public could be conflicting and so, could lead to confusion. Let not your power of decision stand in the wisdom of men. You’ve got to stop worrying yourself about what people think about you. One thing that will always stand firm is what you and God thinks about you. People may say whatever they want and wish but the council of God only will stand.

Going psychological, we can take clue from the findings of Dr. Daniel Amen who in his 18/40/60 Rule stated that “when one is 18 years of age, he worries what people say about him/her; when he is 40 years old, he stops worrying about what people say, such that it doesn’t matter; and when he is 60, he realizes that no one has been speaking about him at all”. But surprisingly, most of the time, nobody really thinks about you. While you are possibly busy thinking about what people are saying about you, your likes are busy doing what they know how to do best. The best thing here for anyone who cares to know is that combining the three (3) scenarios will make a perfect merge: that is to say that, while you are aware that people could be talking you, you should give no ear to whatever they might be saying (which most at times are negative), and in fact, conditioning your mind to believe that nothing like that exist.

Why would you consider what people say before birthing your dream? If you watch the weather, the scripture says, you might never sow. Would you as a doctor instead of treating your patient, stands to think of what is going on the mind of the same patient? Gosh! One thing I can tell you goes on in the patients mind is ‘I hope I get well soon and go back home.’

You’ve got to grow up. You’re actually wasting your valuable time and energy by thinking what others might be saying about you. Let your mind be fixed on doing things that will achieve your goals.  Unnecessary public opinion constitute a distraction to your walk to success, they don’t matter at all. There’s no speed limit in the success race. You determine your speed. Don’t let your dreams and goals die with you. Believe in yourself, belief you can achieve your goals and likewise belief in God.

Toast to your success!

“Those who cannot let go of their past will find it absolutely difficult to face their future”.
The criterion for anyone to be called a successful person is that she/he has been able to maintain their level of success or has improved on them. Except you and I improves on our performances of time past, what we celebrate today would soon become obsolete. Success actually means, “Succeeding in succession”. If your yesterday was good, thank God, but don’t relax, rather, build on those achievements and keep succeeding. In the event that your yesterday was bitter, sad, frustrating, miserable, disappointing,, rejoice because yesterday is gone forever with every each new day that passes and there are more opportunities for you to make amends today. Failure is not totally a bad idea; it’s a new opportunity to make better what you were unable to do the last time. Every one of us wishes to get it at the first instance, yes I know and it’s a good one too. But should in case you didn’t, what will your reaction be? Thomas Edison was said to have failed 999 times in his quest to invent the light bulb, but do you know that in those cases, he found 999 ways to succeed and in which he actually did succeeded.
Do you know that the more you think about the past, is the more you are tied to your past and the more you lag behind?
Yesterday is gone, today is a guarantee and tomorrow is a probability. Today and tomorrow are loaded with numerous possibilities and you must take full advantage of them if you are to keep succeeding. Stop wallowing in regret and self pity. Up your performance from yesterdays level and your achievement today will be upgraded. Refuse to downgrade yourself because of the event of last time.
You don’t have too much time to waste in life. There is more you can get today than what you have gotten already and there is more you can get than what you probably have lost. You can be better than you are presently. Have you ever wondered why successful people hardly rest? The reason is not far-fetched. It is because they don’t wish to be irrelevant.

Keep Succeeding

Keep moving, don’t stop moving. Don’t let the oil stop flowing and that is the more reason you should keep pouring. Success is all over you. It won’t stop coming until you stop acting. Only those willing to change can b in charge. The way to keep living is to keep succeeding. Don’t slow or break your pace. To avoid being irrelevant, you better keep succeeding. Success is you inheritance. It has no end until you call it quit.

Staying Positive through Tough Times

One of the toughest challenges life throws at us is staying positive through tough times in our lives. It is a test to stay positive in order to find solutions to those things that are making our life hard or a living hell. However, it is by staying focused and positive that we are able to overcome the difficulties in our life that at time may seem impossible to overcome. It is not easy to stay positive under adverse conditions, but it can be done.

The first step in staying positive through tough times is actually pinpointing what the adverse thing is so it can be eliminated from our lives completely. This will not happen over night. Negative situations take a toll on a person emotionally, physically, spiritually and mentally after a while. It can immobilize a person from being productive. What happens are negative or adverse situations become part of our subconscious mindset so our conscious actions react in a state of negative action instead of positive action to change our adversities. The subconscious thoughts tell the conscious mind there is no way out of the adversity and you are to settle in it.

This is how negative mindsets work. They set in and overtake any possibility of finding or fighting for positive answers to your problems. It is suggested that if you are the type who finds it difficult to remain positive under difficult circumstances, that you write your situation down on paper first so you can see it. Once you see it on paper, you can then look for ways to alleviate the adversities you face. Researching solutions is one of the best ways to change negatives into positives. Many times when we are in trouble we think we are the only one in the world with that particular problem. In reality, when you research you find out that others have similar or identical situations to yourself. This, first of all lets you know you are not alone. This can help you find the answers as well as how others are dealing with the same situation as yourself. This, in itself, is a positive step to know that you are not alone in your plight. Negativity thrives on isolation.

Being positive is one of the best attributes a person can have in this life. It keeps one pro-active not to accept the adversity that is occurring in their life at the time. It activates your inner strength to overcome the odds that are stacked against you. Staying positive through tough times also allows you to remain in control of yourself and your situation in spite of the negative conditions around it.
