Expect problems and eat them for breakfast- Alfred. A. Montapert.

Have you had your breakfast yet? Of course you know I am talking about that first meal taken after rising from a night sleep mostly taken in the morning before work. I want to propose the most bizzare of food for your next breakfast.

Your problems. Yes! eat your problems for breakfast.

Be Bold, Brave and Strong (1 min)

image

Begin, to be bold, and venture to be wise.
Horace

Everyone admires the bold, courageous and daring; no one honors the faint- hearted, shy and timid. Look around at what others have done and what you can also do. Everyone is afraid. The strong act in spite of the fear. The weak cower because of the fear. Timidity breeds doubt and hesitation that not only weaken but can be dangerous. The coward dies a thousand deaths.
There is a formula for personal development. It is the same formula for everyone.
You must study. You must plan. You must practice. You must be tested. Some will shrink simply facing the task. Some will do the minimum and pass. Some will cut corners and pass. Instead, you must boldly welcome the challenge of honestly meeting the standards. Then and only then will you feel the true pride of accomplishment.
Make a personal decision to do what it will take to succeed. These principles are known to many but lived by few. Most people know what they should be doing.
They lack the will or the self-confidence to test themselves physically and mentally by starting a business, making an investment or establishing a friendship. This is not the independent you. You are a person of action.

Keep going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down._ Charles Kettering

What action step do you think one can take to being bold and brave? And is courage and bravery the same?

Think Positive, Think Different.

Birthday Post: My 20 Random Acts Of Kindness At 20!!!

Nothing is better than the perspective for helping a person want to do the right thing.

When you have something going to live for, not only does it make you desire a long life, but it also helps you see the importance of the steps along the way. Seeing the big picture enables us to put up with the limitations.
I came across this on Amy Bennett’s post a couple of months ago and was inspired. I loved what she did but I knew I wanted to try. So I decided to start my random acts of kindness since June leading up to my birthday. Got few ideas from Brad’s Post.

Here are my 20 acts of random (or maybe not so random) kindness:

1.Phoned My Parents and told them i love them.

2.Payed fares for the next person.

3.Complimented a stranger who looks down. At least, when he looked up I saw a smile.

4.Offered to help some people in an area where i have a lot of skill.

5.Put my copy writing skill to work by helping someone on a research project with 34 hour deadline.

6.Asked to see a manager and gave them personal POSITIVE feedback on their services.

7.Let someone in front of me on a busy highway. Did it and most of them thought I was just a quiet and shy person. Ouch!

8.I went to the bank to make deposit and their customer care lady was particularly helpful and accommodating. When checking out she gave me a survey to take.  I was in a rush, but I took it in hopes that it would help her in some way since she helped me.

9.I made a conscious effort to make eye contact and smile with others at a supermarket. I know it always makes a day to get a smile from a stranger!

10.Sent a note of encouragement to a fellow blogger.

11.Picked up litter in the parking space and around school.

12.Kept my side of an agreement on one hand, for an honest review on two books:Firstly, 10 Minute Digital Declutter co-authored by S.J. Scott of HabitBooks and Barrie Davenport of Live Bold and Bloom. Secondly, 7 Things Resilient People Do Differently by Akash Karia  while on the other hand, I got a copy as a gift.

13.Helped a friend to start up a little business. After that, i learned being an entrepreneur and calling yourself one are two different things.

14.As a way of showing someone that his idea was worth the risk he took, I opt-in and seeked adverts for him. I brushed my marketing skills beautifully.

15.Didn’t wait to say “hello” and ask how some people were doing. What i realized from this is that sometimes we shy away from people when we know they’re having a rough time. We assume we should wait for them to approach us, so we’re not intruding. Instead, i have now learned to ask people how they’re doing. If they don’t want to talk, they’ll say they’re “fine.”Many people will be relieved to have someone to talk to. If you don’t ask, they might never mention anything to you. They might not want to burden you with their problems

16.Smiled at everyone I passed by. It didn’t just make them happy but I also got more happier.

17.Helped someone realize the importance of reading books. Now she reads two books per month.

18.Helped someone who looked lost and needed help with directions; without waiting to be asked.

19.Taking myself out on a treat. At least I need to do a little kindness for myself too.

20.Used every opportunities I had to give compliments. It costs nothing, took no time, and i know it could make someone’s entire day. One thing I learned from doing this is to not just think it in the mind but to simply Say it.
