Tomorrow Has Its Own Worries, Start Today.

When I have a million dollar I will start doing what I love, I will start helping people, I will start contributing to my society, I will start being charitable, when am 20 or 30 I will start my own business. When I read all the books I will start sharing the wisdom I got from them. When I perfect my written and spoken English I will start writing and publishing in my blog. When I have learnt about video making I will start making videos to publish on YouTube.

That was me always putting out what ought to be done today till tomorrow.

The truth is, it’s same to almost everyone. We always like to find excuses to put away today activities till tomorrow.

Tomorrow already has lots of it own worries, why add to it? I asked myself.

Anything you are not able to do today, you won’t be able to do it tomorrow either.

If you wait until you have a million dollar before doing what you love, you may not really have the chance. A million dollar can come with a million issues that will need your 1440 minutes every day. And by that you will be left with no time to doing what you love.

Another thing is, no matter how ready and prepared you are you will never start anything perfect. From when we are born to when die we will always start new things imperfect sometimes badly, but the magic is we can always learn to be perfect in the process.

The idea is to start as bad as you can today, continue tomorrow on it, learn and grow in the process.

Leaving activities meant for today to tomorrow will be the simplest way to delay success.

The Blame Argument Hasn’t Helped

Blame argument

Blame argument

I would have done much assuming I had all the supports.

My parent caused it, they didn’t bring me up in the right religion, culture, beliefs and economic state. Why weren’t they rich to provide me all the necessities needed to face life (the last sentence) like I use to ask my dad).

My Siblings they caused it, they didn’t support me, they should have don better than they did.

In-laws they never believed in me, they should have done something to help my situation.

That neighbour is not generous enough, he couldn’t even help out when needed.

They aren’t fare, they are liars, they withhold my progress, they are not supportive.

The government, they are always unfair, their policies are just beneficiary to themselves and their families.

Oh yes, it’s the devil, he has always being on the mission to mitigate my potentials, my progress.

And many other blame arguments we will always be pleased to debate about.

Sure, we have undergone many experiences, some left us happy, better while some worried and devastated.

We would have done better assuming we had that help. Sure, not disputing that.

But it’s worthy to note that the blame game hasn’t helped any course.

Nobody actually owe us apology or is responsible for our failure or misfortune.

People will always act based on their knowledge, believe and understanding about circumstances and life.

That is one thing will don’t have automatic power to change, though we can help out if we understand that, even though it might take awhile.

It’s time to get things right.

Expect less from people and expect more from yourself.

Don’t give people responsibility without their consent.

Look out for solution, help and assistant from the right source, don’t get upset if you don’t get your way. Try some other ways.

If you have asked and didn’t receive maybe you didn’t ask rightly or from the right source.

If you have seek and didn’t found maybe you didn’t look for in the right place.

If you have knocked the door wasn’t open, probably you knocked on the wrong door.

Although, we can’t do all things alone there people whom God has destiny to come in to our life, our life will be incomplete without then, but then we need to make ourselves suitable for the right people to come in.

We need to stop the blame debate and use every information, knowledge and skills we have, to source and get what we want.

 

Long Term Benefit of Decisions, Thoughts and Actions.

Benefit of thought

Benefit of thought

The major purpose of any investment is the long term benefit of its output or reward. Investments are done today, so to earn tomorrow (in practical world we all know how long it takes for it to mature)

Farmers also operate on this principle (if it could be called principle) they plant their seeds in the winter and wait long till summer to harvest.

I have come to understanding that many are unwilling to act upon things they know won’t grant them immediate gratification or reward(I’m a case study of this) we always want to engage in things that pays off instantly, that is why Ponzi schemes and get rich quick material will always sell out.

Before now, i have always wanted to engage in things that will reward my actions, knowledge and skills if not instantly at least not too long.

Am not against the fact that there are opportunities and ideas that can give us immediate reward or that we should engage in unproductive activities for the sake of long term benefit.

But my intention here is to draw attention to the fact that “the tomorrow we were talking about yesterday is today” what brought us to the place we are this day is the compilation of our thoughts and actions of our previous years, months, weeks and days. I wish I knew this long ago.

Majority of people are impatient.

We always want to receive value but not willing to give.

We are unwilling to wait for our ideas to mature so to yield us abundant fruit, by even that we fail to act upon the ideas we have conceived because the rewards are not obvious (probably in the short-term).

My opinion here might not serve everyone, for some has already learnt the lesson of planting and reaping from farmers. While some, their life’s or means of living are based on daily earnings.

We might not have the resources to invest in stock market, set up a business and much other things, but that doesn’t eliminate the fact that we are responsible for our future.

If you are a student, the same effort, thoughts and actions you put in chasing for admission few years back, if put in other activities will still yield positive results just like it yields you opportunity to study. If you are a doctor if you put in the same effort, thoughts and actions you have already put in your training as a doctor in other professions there’s possibility you will also get your reward, this is applicable to all professions or endeavours. We understand this principle in some areas of life but limit it in other important aspect of life. We forget that our everyday activities matters to our future.

Human are patient enough to spend about 4 to 7 years of their years in studying a course, but unwilling to do little things of value that has no immediate but long-term reward.

Some once said, The best way to predict the future is to create it today.

I suggest when next we have an opportunity to decide or act upon something, we should not limit our decisions based on immediate reward but the long term benefits of our decision or actions.

My decisions, thoughts and actions of five years ago, made up my today that I’m living, so what ever am living now I created it for myself (if they are not what I wish it to be, it’s my fault) and what ever am going to live tomorrow will still depend on my decisions, thoughts and actions today. So is you. We have the ability to invest in our future today through our decisions, thoughts and actions.

We must look into the future what we want and invest in it today, decisions, thoughts and actions required to achieve our wants.

If we keep focusing on the short-term benefits of our actions, we will never create a long term benefits for ourselves.

Give value today to receive value tomorrow.

Offer help to humanity and humanity will help you achieve your purpose.

Be Your Unique Self.

Uniqueness

Uniqueness

It’s an inherited trait in human to always seek for the best in every situations. We all want the compliment, admiration and validation.

It encourages us, it proves to us that our efforts, skills and time are not wasted rather are observed, respected and rewarded.

But it’s obvious that environment, situations and classes are not always the same.

We all came from different geographical location, culture, religion belief, even with different mentality and economic class.

Some are born with golden spoon, while some are born without a silver spoon (I remember reading this literature in my primary days in school).

But regardless of all these, we all have one thing in common which is, to seek for the best in every situation either in look, style, voice, walk, talk, business, skills, ability, creativity and all attainment in life.

We always want the best in every situation we get involved in.

For some, In other to always achieve the best, they imitate.

They try to shape themselves to the general acceptable picture (the picture which everyone will love to see) which is validated by someone, based on achievement or position the person has attended in life.

These people we imitate, we tag them our mentors or role model.

But this act has actually made many to fail in realizing that every individual is unique and should have his or her own unique way or style of doing things.

No intention of despising mentors and role models here.

Almost (if not all) all great people that has lived and still living has and have mentor(s), the twelve disciples as in the bible has Jesus as their mentor.

Surely I do have my mentors.

Mentors are like GPS in modern world that direct us through to the destination we have in mind of reaching, they don’t do the walks for us, they show us the way.

What ever hight they attend or quality they possess that made you admire then might have been done in their own unique way.

Learn from them don’t imitate them.

When we imitate people we compete for attentions, admiration and validations with the person we are imitating, definitely they will always have the highest share, because it’s their style, they know the rules more than we do.

Meanwhile, that will limit our attainment in life and in other aspect of life.

All great people are unique, they have a style they created for themselves.

In the world of soccer Ronaldo and Messi both seen in the current moment as the best in the world of soccer, have their own style so is other great footballers, their style is what makes them great they might have gotten or learnt some ideas and skills from a mentor but their unique style makes then stand out.

So it’s in the business world, every body in business has its own unique way of selling its product, service and concluding on deals. It might not be the perfect way but those that do it well with passion and knowledge are in the top in hierarchy.

Nothing can take the place of your uniqueness. The world want to see your style they are waiting in anticipation, most people are tired of seeing the same old style. They want a different way of doing things, show the world your own unique style in your endeavours.

Do things in the way you are comfortable with, don’t do things in someone owns way, don’t imitate, don’t mind the crowd, few may criticize but have in mind that many want your uniqueness, that style of yours.

Be unique in your look, style, voice, walk, talk, business activities, skills, ability, creativity and all endeavours in life.

As I write this article, I am myself this is my style of communicating my opinion, my ideas and my thoughts, So I urge you to be the special person you are.

Remember if you can imagine it, you can do it.

Life Hacks, To Keep You Focus.

Life Hacks

Life Hacks

Sometimes people comes into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some kind of purpose, teach you lessons, sometimes help you figure out who you are or whom you are supposed to be.

You never know who these people may be, roommate, neighbor, lecturer, friend, lover, or maybe complete stranger, but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.

Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere.

It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, helps to create who you are and whom you will become.

Even the bad experiences can be learned from.

In fact, sometimes they are proponent shaper of one destiny.

If someone loves you, give love back to them in whatever way you can, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, breaks your heart, forgive them for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and listen to what they have to say.

Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.

You can make anything you wish of your life. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

And if you love someone tell them, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.

Learn a lesson in life each day that you live!

Today is the tomorrow you were worried about yesterday.
