You Become Better at Writing after Writing each Post

You can personally discover how to become a better writer if you devote time to writing; always find time to write about anything meaningful. If you repeat this practice and ritual, and do it for an appreciable length of time, you will start to create really good work and gradually become a better writer. Even if you become a better writer after taking the first leap towards becoming better, with practice, perseverance, and the passage of time, you can still become a much better writer, or be among the best writers.

You’re a Blogger—Just Blog!

You are a blogger—just blog; he is a writer—he just writes; she is a musician—she just sings; they are presidents—they just preside over the affairs of their countries and organizations. You are a tourist and blogger—just tour and blog; he is a basketballer and student—he just plays basketball and studies; she is a doctor and philanthropist—she just treats people and donates to charities; they are preachers and prophets—they just prophesy and preach. Even if you are passionate about doing more than two things, like a number of people in the world are, then just go ahead and do them.

Your Writing is a Gift; the Time that People Give to Read it is a Blessing

We have an opportunity: a platform on which we can write words that matter to other people: a platform on which we can provide information in a language and change people’s mindset or mentality, and lives. Many writers have been writing, and building sites or blogs that give them an opportunity to deliver their message and be heard; they concentrate on their passion, and people, subscribers, or followers pay attention. This attention is a blessing that can’t be repaid! (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Valuable Lessons from the Slow Events & Things of Nature

When it comes to enduring the slow processes required of us, we generally have two choices: we can be impatient and bypass time in order to get immediate gratification, or we can be patient and embrace the time required (days, months, or even years) for slow but necessary growth which leads to success and lasting results. The reality of the matter is that most of the slow things of nature—including many slow worldly activities—create great results and lasting achievements in the world. At times, the processes involved in growth and success feel more like inconveniences than opportunities; but if you are patient and stay in the slowness of the processes, you will wake up one day and be amazed at how far you’ve come.

The Value of Waiting: Living Through the times Between the Big Moments

We spend most of our time waiting for our efforts and plans to yield results; we always wait to pay money to cashiers each time we are on checkout lines in grocery stores; we wait to become teenagers and adults; we wait for each weekend to come; we wait for vacation. In fact, we spend most of our days or lives waiting—each person spends most of their life waiting. In the seeming stillness of waiting times, we can learn to live in the present or moment and acknowledge the lessons that life is trying to teach us; this can make us greater or wiser if we regard waiting time as an adventure, regardless of what happens—whether things turn out or don’t turn out the way we expect.

The Quality of Progress is in the Quantity (Number of Attempts You Make)

Even though you will certainly make some mistakes on the path to success, never forget that mistakes are part of progress, and progress will always progress, regardless of whether the outcomes of your decisions or actions are positive or negative. In the long run, the quality of progress you will make is in the quantity or number of attempts you make. Don’t let any negative outcomes of your attempts weigh you down; use both positive and negative outcomes for your overall progress. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

The Easiest Way to Miss Your Life Calling is to Ignore It

Ignoring your life calling could be done in a number of ways, either directly or indirectly. Some people blatantly reject their life calling, while some other people who accept it, end up missing it along the way when they treat it as a single event instead of a lifestyle. Never forget that your life calling or vocation is like a great work of art or literature, instead of just a single great masterpiece: a life calling is an entire body of work, not a single piece of work; and you may end up spending a significant or greater part of your life following your life calling.

To be Called is not Enough; Become Your Calling!

You and I face a choice every day: to either pursue and become our respective authentic selves, or pursue and become other people’s selves which are a shadow of our individual calling or “the real thing”. Few people deviate from the normal or expected pattern and become who they were meant to be. Actually, “many are called, but few are chosen” because many chose the expected pattern while few chose the unexpected or rare pattern that required them to do what had to be done in order for them to become their life calling. The journey of every true hero always included some sacred and risky task and path that helped them find their life calling and eventually gain a deeper understanding of who they were born to be.

Endless Possibilities: Anything, Something, or Nothing is Possible; What do You Believe in?

Do you think it’s possible to materialize endless or infinite possibilities? Do you really think it is possible to become truly great like the great men and women who came to this world, turned it around, and moved on to the other side of existence? Your answer would boil down to the nature of your belief or disbelief. If your desire is to turn endless or infinite possibilities into reality, then you have reached a defining moment in your life: learn to think from outside the box, believe that one person’s impossibility is another person’s possibility, and always look for ways to win your personal debates against negativity.

The Importance of Modelling Around Successful Life Activities Related to Your Interests

Sir Isaac Newton famously said: “If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants”. Although anyone can achieve a lot by using their invaluable GOD-given talent, the road to accomplishments is smoother if one is modelling around or about the successful life activities that are related to their profession, calling, business, or area of specialization. Modelling is the process of discovering and applying what people have done to produce results—especially exceptional results! Would you like to be great at acting, playing football, treating patients, or any other thing? Whatever it is that you want to be great at, even if you have the talent, you can make it much easier to achieve if you model around or about the life activities of people who have been there before and achieved success.

Poverty and wealth shouldn’t be defined only by how much income you make or what you have

Wouldn’t you agree that a doctor is not rich if he earns $500,000 a year, but spends over $750,000 per year and struggles to make ends meet? Certainly, anybody who spends money this way would make life a bit difficult for themself. At the other end of the ladder between poverty and wealth, some people live on less than a few dollars per day, don’t have modern conveniences, walk several miles each day to get clean drinking water, and even cook all their food by burning wood with fire! So poverty and wealth can’t be defined only by how much income you make or what you have: poverty and wealth are much more than just a context or concept. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)

Success isn’t Only about Making Money; it’s about having Enough Dedication to Turn Dreams into Reality

Good Luck and Bad Luck Happen to Everyone; What Matters is What You do With Your Luck

How you make use of the lucky and unlucky circumstances that you come across, will determine whether you become successful or unsuccessful in certain aspects of your life: what could make a person successful is not the type of “luck”—good or bad—that they experience, but what they do with their type of “luck”.

Your Calling Won’t Always Lead You to the Most Comfortable Lifestyle

Although our individual calling depends mainly on us, the path we take to achieve the goals of our individual calling might not always depend completely on us. Sometimes the path can be very challenging, and deadly, but what usually lies at the end is a prize that money can’t buy; a legacy that the world won’t forget. Regardless of what you experience, your calling will always lead you to a lifestyle that you will be in harmony and content with—a life you will be proud of. (Featured Image Credit: Pixabay.com.)
