It’s been a great year so far regardless of the fact that I had my down-to-earth moments.
I am convinced that I wasn’t who and what I used to be because I’ve come to see few changes and improvements and i guess so have you. We learn from our every challenges. When you look back at how God’s been grateful and graceful in the past, it gives you faith for the future.

Success: A choice or luck? (3mins)

Standard

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our
darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to
be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing
enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant
to shine. –Marianne Williamson

3D factors successful people use to turn their dreams into reality.

Standard

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams- Eleanor Roosevelt

Do you realize how close you are to turning your dreams into your reality?
If you could see how close you are to success, you’d be kicking yourself that you haven’t just
reached out to grab it yet.
The truth is, no matter how much you feel like a
failure, success is literally waiting for you. Success is a process. There’s no short-cut to it. The only thing you have to do, is fight off
the factors that’s holding you back from achieving yours. The top is very free, but at the end only few end up there. There are factors, processes and ways to achieve success. One common thing I realized about all success-oriented personals is that they had to give in something be it their time or resources in order to get to where they are now.
Here are the 3-D factors successful achievers use in turning their dreams into reality.
1. Don’t make Excuses

If we choose someone successful to look at as an epitome, like Steve Jobs or Richard Branson or Bill Gates or Oprah Winfrey, we’ll see that they never made excuses. When things went wrong, they didn’t blame other people, their background and they didn’t refuse to accept responsibility for their own mistakes. I’m not perfect though but there’s time in my life when I was more of an excusing person but since when I made it as a challenge to work on myself, I’ve seen things that are really different. Something about these men is that they neither tried to justify their poor choices nor make excuses because they understood
that failure is going to happen. After forming it as a habit to not make excuses, I got to realize that no matter what us, humans undergo, It’s not the end of the road – it’s just a one step on the road to success. When you think it’s the end of the road, add a B-end, because it’s just a bend away to your desired destination.

2. Don’t get scared of Failure
Like I already said, failure happens. But it’s not a
dead end – it’s just a bend which means you could still rise above it.
Too many people run into a tiny bit of failure,
and they think they’re done forever. They give up
immediately, never realizing how close they were
to achieving their goals.
The problem is, they take failure personally. They
think it means something’s wrong with them. But
the truth is, failure is part of the journey to
success.
That’s why it’s so important that you stop getting scared of it.
3. Don’t Beat up themselves.
Think about it. Can you imagine Bill Gates,
yelling at himself, saying that he’s dumb, or lazy,
or any of the other million insults people tell
themselves? Of course not!
Successful people don’t beat themselves up.
They understand that taking your anger out on
yourself only pushes your goals farther away.
They still get upset, but they channel those emotions into constructive energy. They use that
energy as jet fuel to reach their goals. The truth about success is that you’re closer than you think. Sometimes all it takes is to embrace these factors so you can let your dreams
pour in.

Think Positive, Think Different.

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

Standard

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.

The Implausible Impact Of Your Environment For Success

Standard

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
John Muir

Motivation is great. Literally billions of dollars are spent each year by people trying to build their motivation. Tony Robbins, Jeff Keller and others have made fabulous careers helping people maximize their motivation. In truth, you could be helped to focus your motivation for success. All of that is good and useful.

But….

Your environment may be, to a greater extent, as important as your motivation.

By environment, I’m not talking where you live. It is more about how you choose to live.

Make your actions speak louder

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples. — Mother Teresa

Can you give a dollar to a beggar?
Can you lend an ear to one who was avoided by
others?
Can you work an extra shift for a parent who needs to be with a sick child?
Can you speak up and defend a poor soul, being
teased or bullied?
Can you treat all people as your brothers and sisters?
If yes, your example may become contagious. Don’t wait to take action.
