Focus on the Moment, Not on the Monsters that May or May Not Appear Tomorrow

We are limited by our very human nature and can’t always think outside the box like GOD can. As a result, we usually place ourselves in the most unfair and limited position by focussing endlessly on the obstacles of the past and future of almost everything we can possibly think of, instead of focussing on the moment. But the few individuals who go above and overboard aren’t always omniscient or omnipotent! Yes, they aren’t always sure whether their existing problems will disappear or become worse. However, one thing they’re certainly sure of is placing their utmost focus on the situation(s) at hand—the present moment. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Concentrating on the Things Within Your Power, Enhances Your Power

The things under our control are like playing fields in the game of life, while those that aren’t are like rules and regulations of the game of life—rules and regulations that we cannot bend. No matter how inflexible they are, and how helpless we are against uncontrollable circumstances, you won’t stand much to gain by focussing on them. But you gain more momentum and power by using the same amount of time to focus entirely on those things that are within your power or control. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Achieving Success Despite Facing Obstacles that Hold Many People Back

Almost every now and then, we face obstacles—an unexpected, unfortunate, frustrating, and problematic issue—that prevent us from doing what we want to do. Unknown to many of us, embedded in the issue or problem are benefits—benefits only for the person to whom the issue or problem is unique. What do most people do with the issue or problem? They do nothing because it paralyzes them. They wish the issue would be just a mere empty thought, but it is reality. Despite the reality of any issue, there is something that is highly valuable and equally/more of a reality: the possibility for you to succeed despite facing the obstacles that have held and still hold other people back.

Nature Has a Purpose for Every Person, Animal, and Thing

Why is there the tendency or desire to create nothingness out of the very things that Nature created for a purpose? Why the urge to impose one’s will and do away with an aspect of Nature that was created to be sustained regardless of how some people and animals think it shouldn’t? Even if we don’t like/aren’t fond of a particular person, animal, or plant, it’s important to always remember that Nature has a purpose for bringing whatever it has brought into existence.

Obstacles are Opportunities to Become Better, Stronger, and Successful

We cannot evade all obstacles. If not today, then certainly in the future, one obstacle or another will appear in direct or indirect opposition to our plans. The obstacles may even threaten the foundation of the things we’ve erected or succeeded in putting in place. Fortunately, we will always have a chance to study obstacles, adapt ourselves to them, and use them to develop higher, become wiser, and even succeed where people have failed.

Better be Flexible Instead of Sticking to a Script

We don’t always have an answer for every question or a plan for every contingency. Our scripts or plans can be changed a bit or completely by forces beyond our control: they can be edited or deleted without our consent. But this doesn’t mean we can’t adapt or be flexible. It doesn’t mean we have to cave in. We need to be confident that we’ll adapt, be flexible and change for the better, depending on the circumstances. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Regrouping After Failure

Quitting doesn’t mean you’ve permanently given up on your dreams; in most cases, it means you should quit using strategies and plans that are obviously not working for you. It means you should accept failure at the moment, temporarily, and stop to regroup on a more promising foundation. No matter the area you’ve failed in or number of times you’ve failed, you can regroup to succeed elsewhere if you play your cards right. No matter what you’ve done right or wrong to attract failure, you can always regroup after failure. It’s never too late to start on the road to success. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Stop Caring about What People Think

Despite the appreciable or high degree of self-love we possess, we seem to give way too much credence to the opinions that our peers and other people have of us. Such credence, if allowed to get out of control, could make us lose focus on our destiny as individuals, the aim which is to be an individual who doesn’t have to care or depend on what people think. Don’t waste all your time thinking about what other people think about you—how they evaluate your looks, actions, plans, activities, etc. Only think and deeply care about what you think.

Expect to Change Your Opinions

One lesson that life continues to teach is that no one is too young or old to learn something and increase the whole knowledge they have. We learn every day. Even if we don’t, there is always something available to learn every day. The more we learn, the more we come to understand that we could possibly continue learning for all eternity. While learning, asking questions, and probing, we should expect to change some of our opinions, if not many or all of them. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

The Value of Being Ruthless to the Things that Don’t Matter

If we focus on things that don’t matter and become sloppy on the road to our destinies, then the things that don’t matter can become our Achilles’ heel and uncalled-for burdens that have the potential to consume or ruin our lives. You don’t always have to be a yes-man, especially to things that don’t matter. Learn to disagree and say a blunt and outright “no”. Your “No” may turn people off, hurt some feelings, and ruffle some feathers, but the more you continue to say “no” to things that don’t matter, the more it will be easier for you to say “yes” and concentrate on things that matter.

Focussing on What You Can Change & Ignoring What You Can’t Change

Time wasted on things we can’t change is equal to time not spent on a number of things—probably many—that we can change or improve in our lives. In order to have focus and be efficient in life, one should be able to recognize the difference between what they can change and what they can’t change, and focus on what they can change or influence, especially for the better.

A number of things have to come into play—especially determination, consistency and longevity—before any blogger and site or domain owner can really amass an audience of many followers within a short or long period of time; regardless, each blogger or site owner must start with an audience of one follower before growing an audience of many followers.

So, if or when we don’t have sufficient time on our hands, what can we do to keep on covering ground and moving towards our goals? If we still have our determination intact and on fire, we can still achieve our goals by stealing away a little time from each day and working on our goals while watching them take shape until they become reality.

You Don’t Have to Assume an Identity Given to You by Other People

To truly fit into your life calling, you have to avoid assuming an identity given to you by other people; make up your mind and strive towards eventually becoming a self-constructed identity—the type of identity that can truly befit your life calling’s unique make-up, even if you have to make some changes, when necessary, before becoming that self-constructed identity.

To Follow Your Life Calling, You May Have to Break Certain Rules

Following your life calling may be easier said than done, and in many instances, if you want to follow your life calling, you certainly have to break rules—“the rules”—or the status quo. Usually, it is in this manner that many creative people best unfold their creativity. To follow your life calling religiously, you don’t always have to remain in familiar territory and just continue doing what is expected of you.

To Start a New Chapter in Life, We Must Let Go of what is Expected of Us

It’s easy to get confused when we reach such a crossroad where the realization dawns on us that certain rules passed to us—rules that we may be expected to follow—were dictated by someone or people who didn’t actually have our best interest at heart. When hit with this realization, we can and must do something to change the script or narrative for our own good, especially when we gain conviction about what our respective life calling requires from us. To start a new chapter, we must let go of what someone, people, or society expects of us and do what we expect from ourselves. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

GOD Usually Starts at the Bottom, Not the Top

One of the greatest lessons I have learned from the extraordinary achievements of many people who found their life calling is that GOD usually starts working at the bottom, instead of the top in people’s lives. In case you were born at a bottom or very low position in life, don’t be discouraged! You are destined to be happy and great if your lifestyle is in harmony with GOD’s will and you obey His laws as He expects…it doesn’t matter whether you’re really at the bottom because that’s exactly where GOD usually starts from, instead of the top where most people think that GOD should start from.

If you believe in GOD and abide by His laws, then it would be appropriate to thank Him in every situation.

Thank GOD you lack that thing you desire so much because He can use the situation as a powerful tool to strengthen your relationship with Him or make you discover new ideas and uncover the hidden unlimited potentials and abilities you never thought you had.
