REFLECTION


You become a worrier by always worrying. You can be free from worry by practicing a strong faith. With all the strength and perseverance you can command, start practicing faith by dwelling on GOD'S word. You stand to gain much when you have faith in GOD. All you need is believe, no matter what your situation looks like.

HEALTH TIP.


The best and healthy way of preparing poultry for a meal is to remove the visible skin and fats prior to cooking. Roast, bake or broil poultry instead of deep frying to prevent oil absorption. Among the parts, the chicken breasts contain high protein and low fat which make it the better choice cuts. 

So go ahead and have fun with weekend with some nice, we'll spiced roasted, grilled chicken or broiled chicken, with this tip. 

FILL YOUR MIND WITH GOD'S WORD.


Emotions can be a tricky thing to understand, but it becomes easier when we consider that our emotions are fueled by our thoughts.

If we THINK negatively about ourselves, we will FEEL badly about ourselves.

If we focus on the negative in our lives, our lives will seem to have a negative theme. It’s all about what we focus on the most that determines how we feel.

Think about the last time your day took a sudden nosedive because of a "simple switch" of thought. 

One of the ways I've learnt to be emotionally strong is to occupy my mind with every single promise that GOD has made to be in the bible. When my thought is filled with GOD'S word, where's the room to feel unhappy?

HEALTH TIP.


Water is vital to sustain a healthy life. It is recommended to drink at least 8 ounces of 8 glasses of water every day. It aids the cells, tissues and organs to function normally. Body water deficit or dehydration can cause serious damage to kidneys and other organs which may result to mental confusion, coma and even death if not given medical intervention immediately. 

So, let's cultivate the habit of drinking water, no just when you're thirsty.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY


WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE DREAMS?


What were your dreams when you were a child? What happened to those dreams? 

If you are like most of us who were told by our parents, friends, partners, colleagues, teachers how unrealistic our dreams were and have buried those long-ago dreams so deeply in your subconscious mind that you can no longer even remember them, don’t lose hope! All you need is to look deeply inside and self-examine yourself to bring your dreams to the surface. 

Nevertheless, if they remain hidden, there is one important thing to remember: You are not the same person as you were back then!

While it is possible to rekindle a dream you’ve held since childhood, you do not have to. Instead, let new dreams make themselves known to you. Ask yourself what type of work would make you feel most fulfilled. Ask yourself how you can best make a contribution to the world by doing something you truly love.

The truth is, many of us have completely lost touch with our passions. We are so focused on the things we have to do that we have no time at all for play or exploration.

Let me say this; you must create time! Set aside some time to discover your true self; that will help you to figure out what your passion is, or even explore new activities so that you can decide whether they might be one of your true passions. Nothing is impossible!

REFLECTION


When you keep making the same mistakes over and over, and you keep saying, "you know I'm not perfect", that's the devil beating the drums of destruction for you and you're ignorantly dancing to it! That's why people ain't getting any better or even make efforts to get better! 

We must learn to take responsibilities for our actions/mistakes, accept that we're wrong, learn from it and determine to get better- that's the only way to walk in CHRIST'S perfection! Here's what our LORD JESUS said in Matthew 5:48, " You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." 

So, stop believing those lies. That's part of the devil's tricks to keep you down in his claws for life. Don't allow it! Determine to be perfect just like JESUS!

Stay blessed!

YOUR EMOTIONS AND YOU.


Even if all the outer aspects of our lives seem wonderful, our emotions can still cause us to feel unhappy. Memories of events that caused us great distress can stifle our development. Negative thought habits can fill us with feelings of frustration and powerlessness. Negative self-talk can cause us to sabotage any goals we set.

Emotions can be a tricky thing to understand, but it becomes easier when we consider that our emotions are fueled by our thoughts.

If we THINK negatively about ourselves, we will FEEL badly about ourselves. If we focus on the negative in our lives, our lives will seem to have a negative theme. Whatever we focus on the most determines how we feel. Even if everyone around you is emotionally down or having a bad day, you can choose to stand out by being emotionally strong and happy. It all depends on what you allow your mind to think.


For instance, someone steps on your toes when you were having a really good day; do you start cursing the person or would you rather have a more kind approach towards the situation at hand? Believe it or not, your attitude tends to attract most of your experiences, feeling negative will continue to attract more rude and inconsiderate people into your day while feeling positive will attract more friendly and considerate people in your day.


It may seem like a difficult thing to control your anger when it's ignited, but with practice it gets easier. I'm talking from experience. Rather than internalizing the things that happen to you, especially things you can’t control, simply let go of them and keep your emotional balance. If you pay attention to how you feel throughout the course of your day, you will become aware of whether your thoughts are negative or positive. Then you can simply choose to release your negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts – which will make you feel better. Again, it takes consistent effort to fully master this technique.

SUCESS IS A JOURNEY!


If there is one thing I've learned in life, it is the understanding that success is a journey, not a destination. It is not about what you do, but WHO you become through the achievement of your dreams.

Success is a process of letting go of perceived limitations, growing and developing as unique individuals, believing in our true potential, honoring the best parts of ourselves and letting the world know who our source is- GOD. 

Believe it or not, the mind is where all the issues of life and events are birthed. In this journey to success, most of the process, if not all, takes place in our very own minds. 

Listen dear friend, nature has designed it that you are successful; you've always had the potential to be successful, you just need to believe it and embrace it! So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!!!! 

SO, WHAT'S YOUR POINT OF VIEW?


 "Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud, and one sees the stars."- Frederick Langbridge, A Cluster of Quiet Thoughts.

Way back during my secondary school days, I was among the six students that got picked to represent my school in an English Essay Writing Competition. Truth be told, I was the least among the rest when it came to having excellent grades, not only in English, but in all the subjects. I actually wondered why I was picked, but I guess the teachers saw in me what I couldn't see in myself then. Rather than shy away from the challenge, I saw it as an opportunty to improve in my essay writing; and even though we didnt win the price, I made an excellent grade in English Language during our final examinations.

So my point is, in life, we have choices; and we either have a pessimistic view and live a self-defeated life or decide to be optimistic and take a challenging and fulfilled life.

So why nurture an optimistic point of view? And why now?

Research has shown that, optimism has been linked to positive mood and good morale; to academic, athletic, military, occupational and political success; to popularity; to good health and even to long life; and freedom from trauma and every negative situation. 

On the other hand, the rates of depression and pessimism have never been higher.

It is true that the challenges could be so overwhelming, but wouldn't you rather see the best in every situation than see the worst?
The truth is, optimists are confronted with the same harsh challenges, but what differs is the way they see their challenges. They believe that defeat is just a temporary setback, and focus on ways to solve the problem or even see the experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. They never say never. They believe that things will get better.

People respond positively to positive minded people. Their optimistic view of the world can be contagious and influence those they are with.

When the going gets tough, optimists get tougher! So what's your point of view??

GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF


Getting to know yourself can blast through any negative preconceptions you may be persistently entertaining in your thoughts or mind. Remember, your self-image is usually based on the conclusions you formed from your past experiences. For instance, you may hold a belief that you are not a good writer, or you’re not a “people person”, or that you don’t have any special skills, but is that really true? How do you know for sure?

Please don’t say, “Because I tried it once and I sucked at it.” Trying something once or only a few times should not discourage you. You only need to make up your mind to succeed. 

The truth is, you can become good or even great at anything if you truly want it and are willing to never give up. 

My question is: Do you really want to get “there”? Getting to know yourself helps you separate what you really want from what others expect of you.

REFLECTION


Will you live a life controlled by random thoughts or will you choose your thoughts carefully to develop a success mindset?

When you get a hold of your thoughts you have the power to create wonderful things in your life, all by just taking command, training and instructing your mind to think properly. 

WHEN YOU THINK POSITIVELY


Positive thinking will only work for you if you are willing to work at it. The truth is, it is not an easy discipline. It takes the HOLY SPIRIT inside of you and of course your hard believe in GOD. 

Positive thinking takes honest living, and a strong desire to succeed. For Positive thinking to work for you, you must continue to work at it to achieve the desired success. Don't stop learning. Keep learning and relearning.

LET LIFE FLOW THROUGH US.


We must let Life flow through us, and allow it to express itself naturally. Do not let the little worries of life, or the big ones either, depress you and cause you to lose your vitality. Assert the Life Force within you, and manifest it in every thought, act and deed, and before long you will be exhilarated and fairly bubbling over with vitality and energy.

It is astonishing how much interest we may find in the ordinary things of life if we will only wake up. There are interesting things all around us - interesting events occurring every moment - but we will not be aware of them unless we assert our life force and begin to actually live instead of merely existing.

STRONG DESIRE - CONFIDENT EXPECTATION - COURAGE IN ACTION


Why should anything be too good for you? Did you ever stop to think just what you are? You are a manifestation of the Whole Thing, and have a perfect right to all there is. Or, if you prefer it this way, you are a child of the Infinite, and are heir to it all. You are telling the truth in either statement, or both. At any rate, no matter for what you ask, you are merely demanding your 
own. And the more in earnest you are about demanding it - the more confident you are of receiving it - the more will you use in reaching out for it - the surer you will be to obtain it.

Strong desire - confident expectation - courage in action - these things bring to you your own. But before you put these forces into effect, you must awaken to a realization that you are 
merely asking for your own, and not for something to which you have no right or claim.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


It could be that all your life, you’ve always been the one giving and taking care of other people and now you feel tired and drained.  It could be time to ask yourself if time has come for the meaning of your life to change from giving to being able to receive. This will go a long way to save you from going into depression. To be a great giver, you must be an excellent receiver. That's how it works.

REFLECTION


There is nothing small about our GOD, and when we understand GOD we will find out that there ought not to be anything small about us. We must have an enlargement of our conception of GOD, then we will know that we have come to a place where all things are possible, for our  GOD is an OMNIPOTENT GOD for impossible situations.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT


I've come to realise that people applaud to stupid and irrelevant statements or stuff (maybe because it favours them), but when something serious and matters that touch the heart, or when a great work is shared, they ignore it. So, to someone out there working hard and feeling that no one is seeing you,  trust me, the whole world is seeing you and most importantly, GOD sees you, and in HIS beautiful time, HE will reward you. Stay on course, GOD NEVER SLEEPS!
